Located in Lihue on Kauai Island of Hawaii, Yamato's Kitchen has been serving a unique assortment of homemade ice creams, sherbets, and sorbets incorporating as many locally grown and produced ingredients as possible. We have expanded to include local and Japanese home cooking style foods such as the ubiquitous manapua, assorted bowls, and are looking forward to bringing our ramen to Kauai on a regular basis.

About Us

Having originally opened in 2011, the Yamato's brand has evolved from a gourmet ice cream truck, to a family operated ramen-ya. Tracing our current culinary roots to the Tome area of Japan, we have been fortunate to have learned the core of our craft from Kenju (Michelle and Natasha's father). A word to the wise, while we run a brick and mortar establishment, it is a SMALL establishment. Try as we may to avoid it, we do at times run out of food, so come early or leave hungry!
