We stumbled upon this gem when visiting Grand Rapids for Art Prize. It is in the basement of a huge building. We went in and you place your order by filling out a checklist. The wait was long, but the sushi was incredible and very reasonably priced. I wish I had a place like this near me. When in Grand... More

I tried the salmon and avocado and sweet potato rolls. I was really coming because a coworker wanted sushi. I'm not a big sushi eater. On the menu there was additional dinner options but once arrived at restaurant, there were just rolls and a few small sides.

Sushi Yama is a casual place with tables,but you order at the counter inside. The food is good and inexpensive for the most part. They close at 730pm and don't serve drinks. Tea and water.

This is my favorite place to get sushi! I love the location although it could be difficult to find if you aren't familiar with the area. I live in Florida now and come her every time I visit home. It is by far the best quality for the price and the staff is so friendly! My sister and I enjoyed... More

The sushi rolls are very fresh (made while you wait). The sushi rolls are really just average in portion size and taste. The prices are excellent, with many basic rolls under $5. each. The location is interesting. The restaurant is in a quiet basement in the center of downtown Grand Rapids. The small dining space interior reminds me of the... More

Due to the price and freshness always being ideal this used to be a weekly routine for me. I left GR for 2 years, came back 2 weeks ago and both guys behind the bar remembered me and asked if I was ready to order the Crispy Eal Roll. They remembered my order from 2 years ago! Awesome chill guys... More

My wife and daughter and I make regular Saturday stops for the lunch roll special D. The gentlemen who really n this place are kind, efficient, and very good at what they do. For... More
