I went here with a group of 7 people and myself after hearing about how amazing this place was from people back home in Australia and Fernie locals. We had to wait an hour for a table which is understandable with a big group in such a small place. But our private seating area was great. My partner and I... More

This is an excellent small sushi resturaunt, the food is just simply fantastic. They have the usual on the menu but in addition have rolls with a twist, now these are epic. Really exciting twists on the normal with flavours and ingrediants. Friendly staff and priced very fairly.

The word was this is a great restaurant where lots of people go, but I felt it was to busy and to noisy to enjoy each others company.

The food was very tasty, so fresh and well presented. My husband and I are not experts in sushi restaurants but this didn't matter as staff were very helpful & gave time to ensure we ordered the right food. Left feeling we had a fantastic meal on such a cheap cost!

This place is always busy, and they don't take reservations. It's busy for a reason though; the food is superb. We took everyone's advice and went early, we waited about 20 minutes for table. I think it helped that we were only a table of two, some larger groups that arrived before us were still waiting quite some time after... More

You wouldn't think of Fernie as a great place to get Japanese cuisine, but Yamagoya will change your mind. Great food make this a busy place for your 'Apres' adventures.

It's loud and crowded, there is a reason for that. It is great food and a good time. Be prepared to wait as it fills up upon opening. Well worth the wait.

This is the first place I ever ate Sushi. Since then I've had it in Vancouver, Cambridge (UK), London, Tokyo and Kyoto. I've had better sushi for sure. But the vast majority of the Sushi I've had has not been up to the standard served at this restaurant, 17 hours from the sea. When I was in Fernie in 2014,... More

The food at Yama Goya is always delicious. It's always busy whether summer or winter. We've eaten at Yama Goya many times. They open at 5:00 and we usually line up for then. Otherwise you may have a wait!! Well worth the wait though.
