Yamato Steak House of Japan has opened a restaurant in Philadelphia in the old Route 21 location in the plaza next to Walmart.

The Japanese-styled food restaurant opened last week. They will serve lunch and supper and later will offer catering.

Owners Steven He, Derrick Chen and Jack Chen also own similar restaurants on the Coast and in Orlando.



“We have been running restaurants for about 20 years,” said He. “We specialize in Japanese steaks and sushi.”

He said he expected to employ around nine people in Philadelphia. The restaurant will sit around 100 people.
