I love the salmon hibachi and sometimes at lunch get the bento box salmon for more variety. The hot green tea is very nice and free. The staff is attentive and shows up at just the right moment.

I tried all sushi places in Iowa city/coralville , this one is hands down the best place in town. Prices are normal and service is fast.

First, our sushi was very good. We both enjoyed the rolls we ordered. However, it's too casual of an atmosphere and the service is below average -- both of these items really detract from the experience you ~could~ have here. They casually get around to you when it's convenient type attitude... and you just get to the point where you... More

Sat for over an hour waiting for food before a waitress, who wasn't even ours, noticed we didn't have our food. Our order had obviously been misplaced, which happens. But I asked the waitress to then cancel our order if it was not being made because we had a movie at 7:30 (it was already after 7:15) but instead I... More

It's pricey, but you taste every cent. Get the Bento plate--nice sampler. And their tempura is wonderful. AND, ladies and germs, you can get anything to go--even miso. Yakisoba is great. Everything I've eaten there is superb, and their seaweed salad is Heavenly.

Great meal - it is better to go at lunch because the meal is cheaper and is just the right amount of food. The salad and fish soup are not that great - but the main dishes are amazing.

Good sushi including Uni that takes you to the ocean, plus real Japanese meals which even excite the grand children (including the Japanese soft drinks). We have never been dissapointed (except when it was too crowded).

Found this little gem while going to Iowa City for my cousins wedding. EXCELLENT sushi! I had the heaveny roll, which was unexpectidly spicey.. But delicious! My Mom also ordered the jimmy roll which she enjoyed. My fiancee who is not a sushi fan even ate a spider roll. He and my Mom's boyfriend ordered their Bento Lunch Boxes which... More

Maybe the best sushi in Iowa City. There is an impressive array of sushi houses in this small place but Oyama is among the best. The chefs work hard to create delicious rolls and you won't be disappointed if you visit here for dinner.
