Best Sushi Ever!

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!!

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 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

This was my first visit and the food was great. The staff was friendly as well. It was a mixed crowd of business, family, and friends.

Probably one of the closest restaurants to our house, we are very lucky since Yama lures people in from all over Central Mass. Wonderful sushi, excellent fusion meals and the most heavenly Unagi I have ever had. They also have a full bar, do a busy takeout service among us locals, and yet are a very hip and trendy place...

We are regulars at this hidden gem in Northborough MA. Hidden away in a strip mall, this sushi restaurant is the best we've ever eaten. Interesting rolls with names like "The Brady" "The Bellercheck" "Lobster Bomb" and "The Red Sox" are some of the favorites. Run don't walk to this place. Call ahead for reservations any night of the week... More

My wife and I love having lunch at this restaurant. This place is right in our home town. We are so lucky to have a place to eat that is always so consistently good. I love the sushi/sashimi bento box and my wife loves the teriyaki salmon. Pan fried gyoza and edamame are great appetizers. The place is clean and... More
