We just ate here since moving to Denville after hearing of this great little place. Its more a traditional type place with bar seating, the chefs crafting their sushi and rolls with all fresh ingredients and small tables for 2-4 persons. My wife does not eat raw seafood, pork or shell fish so she has been a trooper and trying... More

Have visited this restaurant twice for dinner. Both times sushi was fresh and flavorful and nicely presented. Service is polite and responsive, but sometimes you have to signal a server to get attention. Very reasonably priced and also a BYO. Tip: Parking lot along the side of the restaurant and also in the back.

This is my all time favorite spot for sushi. It is reasonably priced, the staff is extremely friendly, and the sushi is always fresh and delicious. The Yama special roll is one of my favorites using sliced cucumber instead of rice and seaweed! I also really enjoy the fried vegetable dumplings. They come with a sweet dipping sauce that is...

Whenever we're visiting in the area, we try to go to Yama Sushi. We are welcomed, and remembered, no matter how long we've been away. The owners are very involved with the excellent service, on site when we visit. The sushi is beautifully presented, with fun options like the "Friendship Roll." There are other options in addition to sushi and... More

I was sent here by a friend. When I pulled up I was not impressed that it was in a tiny store front BUT I am so glad I went in. The fish was fresh and the perfect temp.

Excellent fresh fish served as sashimi or sushi style. A small store front in downtown Denville. Went on a Wednesday evening and it was packed. The service was good, the restaurant was clean and the prices were affordable especially given the quality of food.We will return.
