Fantastic!

Everything we ordered was very tasty, especially the terriyaki sauce and the miso soup. The service is fast and friendly, and there's a TV to watch. The sushi and rice were also excellent, the fish very fresh. I definitely recommend this place, and I'm coming back!

My wife and I decided to order a couple rolls of sushi and have some Miso soup as a light dinner tonight, and as every time we visit Yama Sushi, we were very satisfied. We ordered the 'Sweet Mom Roll' which was a crispy shrimp tempura with lobster salad and was heaven in your mouth and, we also ordered a... More

I could be wrong with how my sushi was made, but I don't remember having lettuce as a part of a roll. There was a good bit of lettuce and small amount of roll, spyder, shrimp temp, and eel roll mainly cucumber and rice.26.00 was not good

The wife and I ate here on a Sunday night 45 min. before closing. There was no one else there when we walked in…too sad so many were missing out. Another couple came in a little while later. This place is in a strip mall…don’t let that fool you…go there. Based on this one meal it was perfect. We shared... More

I have eaten here about a half dozen times and have always enjoyed great sushi and sashimi but what separates Yama Sushi in a county with many great sushi places is the presentation. Each item served is an art piece and a visual as well as gastronomic delight.

So, apparently the old (good) management is out "sick" for a while. That's sad to hear b/c they were nice people and ran a tight ship. Now...it appears they have other family members running it into the ground!! Sat down. Saw crap all over our menu - think rat feces looking crap - then said we had an emergency and... More

We ordered many different sushi, each to each other's tastes. For example the butterfly rolls, tuna, salmon, yellowtail, scallop and two other more complicated rolls. We had miso soup and baby octopus. The miso soup was great, exactly what it should taste like. The baby octopus was good too. Overall all sushi tasted very fresh. The butterfly rolls were the...

Tried Yama Sushi after opting out of a long line at another sushi location. Very happy with our choice. It features both a sushi bar and small tables or a separate private room. The service was just right, with our tea replenished promptly and delicious range of reasonable choices. Plan to return for the lunch special, which appears to be... More
