Our dining experience was great, food was really good. Our hibachi chef was very entertaining and everything was prepared as ordered.
Only slightly negative thing to say was that the restaurant could definitely benefit from a interior renovation

My family and I enjoyed a festive birthday celebration at Yama Japanese Steakhouse. We sat at the hibachi table and were entertained by the chef who had a lot of personality and was particularly sweet to our granddaughter. The chef and staff served a surprise birthday dessert to our daughter as well. The was plentiful and delicious.

Our dinner this evening was so good. We were warmly welcomed. The waiter was engaging and seemed like he actually enjoyed taking care of the guests at our table. There were eight in our party and between us we ordered shrimp, chicken, scallops, filet and dumplings, which were all prepared very well. The chef was entertaining. Our son and his family really liked the birthday dessert. Overall, a fun time was had by all.

We tried out this steakhouse that took over where Yoshitia use to be. The same type of food, but not as good.The cook we had used way to much salt. Part of it was uneatble. He didn't know who to taper down his flame display since we had small children. The kids like the smoking volcano and the spinning eat. the 2 yr old loved watching how fast he chopped the food. It was good except for the extreme salt added to it, We will go back to give them a second chance

Went first for diner Friday night--didn't want to deal with the crowds in downtown Asheville; everyone really enjoyed what they ordered. My husband's filet was excellent. Miso soup, salad with ginger dressing, chicken, shrimp, veggies all great and very entertaining chef. Second visit was lunch Saturday. Not many people in by 12:30, but service was great. Nice chef, attentive staff, their lunch special was chicken and shrimp for 11.00, smaller, still generous portions; they did some carrots with the rice first, but they had sweetened the carrots with brown sugar, too much sweet for my taste. Next time they said they could leave it out on request. Broccoli, mushrooms and the carrots for the veggies during lunch ;whereas diner had zucchini, onions, peppers, Broccoli, mushrooms and Carrots. But the filet was only 12.00, very good quality. We will be back.
