Lunch box with sashimi, California roll, tempura, tofu, sprouts, pot stickers and rice for $10.95 pretty much sums up the value side of the review. A lot of food for a small price, and the good is uniformly and consistently fresh and good. It doesn't have the glitz of Morimoto or Nobu, but it doesn't have the pricetag, either. A... More

With all the top reviews, as well as the long lines - perhaps I had overly high expectations. Yama does a nice job, and has fresh well served sushi - but it is not memorable. Nothing stands out. The decor and space itself is fine - but sushi restaurant standards. The prices are average. The service is average. It tends... More

Visited Yama today for dinner. It was recommended as the best sushi in the area. It didn't disappoint, in fact it was just great. We had very tasty miso soup and really generous garden salad. I had the dragonfly roll and my son had a variety of specialty rolls , all exceeded expectations. Great service, great good, great deal. We... More

Not fancy and modest in size. This place has been here for years. They offer a large selection of rolls. There are also some Korean-inspired dishes such as the donburi; we ordered it and it reminded me of Korean bibimbap. Prices are reasonable. We felt rushed, though, by the waitress and busboy who were pressuring us to order and then... More

Very nice sort of Japanese "light" nothing too exotic for the American audience. Very nice sushi though many are American crazy rolls. Tempura is very nice as well as. Wait staff is very nice and helpful.

Amazing sushi, great prices, great service...wow, this place is the real deal. I got the lunch bento sashimi box and I enjoyed everything and I mean everything. I really liked the tofu which was a wonderful surprise as I typically do not like tofu. The salad dressing was lovely, so soup yummy, and the green tea was a perfect pairing... More
