It was suggested we go here for dinner by friends that live in Fernie. Words can not describe how much we enjoyed our experience at this establishment. Go early, eat lots, savor it, enjoy great company and amazing dishes that make it hard to stop ordering and trying each dish. Great business, our next visit we won't wait for our... More

We had sushi and were very satisfied with our meal. There are numerous "traditional" and more eclectic options, both of which were very good. I wouldn't say the sushi was mind-blowing, but it was fresh, creative, and well-executed, and much better than I'd expect in a little town. I don't doubt that Yamagoya deserves its #1 rating.

After a challenging hike to Lizard Lake we cleaned up and headed to Yamagoya, the number one rated restaurant in Fernie. We arrived at 4:45 pm, fifteen minutes before opening. By the time it opened there was a lineup! We sat on the deck, and selected a table nicely screened from the late day sun. Every bite was delicious! We... More

Went here based on trip advisor reviews, was not disappointed! My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the sharing plate (yamagoya black). Perfect summer meal, delicious miso, fabulous sushi, and ice cream to top it off. Highly recommended!

Love going to Yamagoya - easy to find on the highway going through town, delicious food, quick service and a discount if you arrive by bike! They have a great selection of both traditional and modern takes on sushi. Worth the wait if there is one, nice patio.

A very comprehensive menu with a wide variety of options. The food was excellent. Warm, tasty and there was a range of very traditional Japanese cuisine as well as North Americanized Japanese meals. Lovely ambiance and excellent service make for a great meal.

We were back at Yamagoya for the first time in a couple of months. As always the food was fantastic. We Love the gyoza, tempura veggies, and the West Fernie and Curry rolls. The service was excellent. If you walk there, remember to ask for your 10% discount.

We loved the Yamagoya. It was a very hot night so we had a lovely meal out on the deck. Service was excellent, as was the meal (particularly loved the gyoza!). Our first time at Yamagoya, but will not be our last! It'll be a regular stop on our visits to Fernie from now on.
