Yamaya is a downtown favorite of mine. I live only a few blocks away, but don't get there as much as I would like. The sashimi was expertly handled. The udon is hot and tasty. Writing this review is making me hungry.

Small family run operation, great food. Ramen broth is spot on. Feels like you're in one of the small shops in Tokyo.

Most main course dishes will run between $9 and $20 depending particularly on the type of seafood ordered. For instance, the eel is more expensive than chicken.
