Best Sushi Around

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... read 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

I had heard about Yama Zakura and we stopped in to get a bite before getting our daughter. What a wonderful place. Busy, Friendly, and the food was outstanding. We love Sushi and Yama delivered. A bit slow on some of the items coming, but nothing too worry about. It was packed! Obviously for good reason. Can't wait to go... More

This the best Asian cuisine I have experienced anywhere. We have been loyal customers of this restaurant since the early days when the owner Anna spent much of her time behind the sushi bar. This is a don't miss for anyone who enjoys sushi.

This past Saturday evening we went out for dinner with friends to try something different from our normal routine of Italian or Indian food... I am somewhat of a newbie to sushi, Yama Zakura was new for my husband and me and our two friends. This gem is in a strip mall and is very unassuming. The inside is wonderfully... More

My husband and I try to get a date night here every few months. The food is always perfect, very flavorful and presented beautifully. They also have great specialty drinks. The owner always checks in and the atmosphere is fun. We'd go more often but it's on the pricey side. You get what you pay for!

We have been coming to Yama Zakura since Anna opened years ago when the place was a third of the size it is now and people were just starting to appreciate good sushi in the area. Through the years she has proven that being consistently fabulous makes word spread better than any other kind of advertising can. We ordered a... More

Incredible Sushi - try the Lobster Bomb!! When they found out is was our 1st time they gave us their Chocolate Souffle on the house - without even having to order it. It tales 30 minutes to make - so they planned this extra treat for us. Other posts knock the tables being too close , too noisy etc. Get... More

The sushi is very fresh and the presentation is lovely. We've had different items each time and everything is delicious. Call for a reservation. Order the chocolate dessert when ordering your entree (it takes 30 minutes to prepare) -it's to die for! Josh is an outstanding server.

We love, love this place. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars and not 5 is because the restaurant is way too small for the volume they have. The tables are too close to each other and you can't really have a private conversation. The sushi is out of this world. Been to Hawaii and couldn't find sushi that good... More
