Stopped by this place and it certainly is better than the position it's at on TP. Very fresh Japas (Dim Sum and Sweet Potato wedges are sublime). Service was very friendly and efficient, with knowledgeable staff. Five plates plus two drinks came in at a reasonable €48. Definitely recommended if you are in the centre of Dublin.

Staff was ok But very expansive for what we have ordered. 3 people, more than 50 euros and still hungry at the end.. Avoid!

Fab place, five mins from temple bar. We arrived on a Saturday evening and although we couldn't book a table in advance we only had to wait a wee while until we were taken upstairs to a table overlooking a prep area. It was obviously a real treat to watch such skilled chefs perform magic with fresh ingredients. Only draw... More

The Yamamori has an excellent choice of food and drinks which are tastefully displayed 'like an art masterpiece'. You can relax and listen to some urban lounge deep and soul tunes in an oriental style setting. The Izakaya has a retro easy going atmosphere, lovely lighting - an artist's dream of a brilliant display of posters, Chinese beer 1940's ads... More

Can't say enough about what a terrific place this is! Having lived in Japan for years, Izakaya Yamamori has the best atmosphere, food and service in its genre I've found in Europe. Do yourself a favor though and try to walk through the menu of small dishes before ordering sushi. Though this fish is outstanding, we see too many people... More

A friend a I decided we needed a little nibble before we headed on a night out and found ourselves outside Izakaya. We headed down the stairs into a very cool Japanese style bar and was immediately was impressed. The atmosphere was great, sushi was fresh and we will definitely be back

We revisited this restaurant recently. This was our first visit after our holiday in Japan. We decided to visit again and compare Yamamori with the real experience. We were not disappointed the food was excellent. The staff, as usual were friendly, helpful and very efficient. The decor is very welcoming. We were a party of 3 and decided to order... More

Fantastic place with all the jap movie posters and the funny lights, very very good fresh sushi and smart and good the idea of the "japas" for tasting a bit of everything. ... not really cheap but must try it!!!
