We walked to this great location for sushi and were not disappointed. The food was fresh and quickly delivered to our table. I would definitely go back.

Some of the best sushi in town. I can't count on them being open, drove 30 min across town for sushi just to find out they closed early and I don't have time to go somewhere else.

Enjoyed the food and the staff were terrific. They even brought us some samples of various Saki varieties to help us decide what to order. Food was very fresh and good.

we thought the food was very good - exceptionally fresh and well prepared. just wondering why such a nice place has to have two TV's on. plus, the tables are very close together and unfortunately we had two very loud gentlemen next to us. next time we would sit at the bar. this is definitely a place i'd go back...

We were a table of six. All the rolls that arrives were delicious, creative and visually very appealing. Easily beats the standard sushi fare. A bit pricey but worth it for the flavors. Try the Lobster sushi roll. Next time, I'll part-take of the sake flight. The only hitch was the one dish that was from the entree meal (grilled... More

We go to Yama frequently. They never miss in quality of the fish, the preparation nor the presentation. We have found everything to be outstanding and we would highly recommend the Stack, the lobster rolls, the sautéed razor clams, the udon soup when it's cold outside! We highly recommend Yama Sushi in the Pearl!

We were here for a Saturday lunch and were very impressed. The food was very well priced for what it was. My husband and I both ordered bento boxes, the sashimi box and the misoyaki salmon & karage chicken box, which were both really well sized and so delicious. The staff were friendly and food was delivered to our table... More
