My friends and I go to Yamas every now and then. The chef was very nice and playful. He recommended some very good Sake and Tequila. The food was awesome and tasted great. We will definitely be going again soon.

If you have to choose between two similar restaurants, choose Yama over Sake House in Burton. The food is always fresh and tasty.Sake house is not. Wonderful sushi selection, too.

Great Japanese restaurant- very simple setting with great staff and very skilled and personable chef. Very reasonably priced menu with lots of choices. My husband is allergic to shrimp so they cooked his entree in the kitchen.
