Ordered a lobster bomb maki, Thai ice tea and green salad with ginger dressing for lunch. Out of 8 pieces of maki, 2 contains lobster shells. Brought it up to the waitstaff attention when she was clearing my dishes. She came back with an unacceptable explanation. According to her, lobster contains shells. It is not possible to remove every little... More

Randomly found this place while on a business trip. It has a very unique setup! It clearly was a bar at one time but was converted to a sushi bar! I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and highly recommend!

We haven't been regulars here but the food is very good. The place isn't very big so it's smart to get there early. They seem knowledgeable about the gluten free offerings. Very popular restaurant with local families and teens.

This is an AWESOME restaurant if you like Asian cuisine. Food is exceptional- you've got to try "My Angel"! This restaurant has won Best of Worcester multiple years. I was not a Sushi lover until I went here. Anya, the owner, is almost always on the premisis and sits and talks and laughs with her guests. Great find in a... More

My reviews are usually positive, I can't consider Yama as average but I guess I expected more. They have the same spicy sauce on everything we ordered so it all dishes tasted the same. I would go back for sure and try different things and hope I'm wrong. I love to support the local business.

I was staying in the area for a month and decided to check this place out since it got such high ratings. By far the BEST sushi I've had!! I had the Yama nachos, lobster bomb and tried the Thai iced tea. All amazing!! Truly a hidden gem you cannot miss out on!!

I hear the lady owner is self-taught. Well I'm so, so glad that she eventually gave up her day job and opened this place. This is probably one of the best Sushi restaurants that I've been to globally. The regular dishes are superb but the specials exceptional. What makes the food here different is the twist - usually in a... More

We love the Belichek roll and the Brady roll. The Yama cocktail is special. We enjoy bringing family and friends who are sushi connoisseurs - they always think this is the best sushi.

Fantastic experience. Normally I never write reviews on any restaurant, hotel, etc. but Yama Zakura deserves it. The wait staff were professional, knowledgeable, easy to relate to and timely. The food was nothing short of incredible - hyberboles aside this is definitely a leading contender for the best sushi I have ever had. I tried the Lobster Bomb and the... More
