Oyama is the best sushi in the area. The food is fresh and delicious and the staff is extremely friendly. One of my favorite places in town to eat.

This tiny restaurant off the beaten path is obviously a labor of love. Many families and students flock here for the food and a good time. We feel as though we are in a neighborhood restaurant in Japan every time we go.

Had the Teppan lunch at Oyama's with sushi on the side. We had lots of fun and great food. We have been here MANY times and have never been disappointed. Sort of a hard to find location, but worth the effort.

This used to be the best place in town, it changed owners and is still pretty good but no longer worth the splurge it takes to really order the full experience. Custom rolls can be OK but tend to be, as an old friend used to say "glorpy".

If you are looking for the specialty rolls or spicy seafood salads then Oyama is the place to go. However, this fall the rumor is that the restaurant is under new management - and I think the difference is noticable. Maybe I'm a sushi snob but the rolls don't seem as fresh.
