Excellent sushi

Our family comes to Yama all the time. This is our favorite sushi place in the AC area. Don't expect a posh spot but sushi is always fresh and delicious. A real treat is an appetizer hamachi Kama, a Japanese broiled fished. I have never tasted a better one anywhere and I have been to many... read more

Even though the sushi is very good I may not be going back. I was there Saturday 2/7. My wife and I showed up at 8:57 and they obviously did not have enough staff. That was okay and we can understand that. We watched as another couple came in after us and prior to even coming to our table she... More

I'm not a big sushi fan but my family loves yama and they know sushi. They also offer bento boxes which are s combination of Japanese items that are more to my liking so I never ins going.

Everything we ordered was excellent, and the waitress helped us decipher what was served raw vs cooked. We only chose cooked , and she was patient and went over the menu with us.

Yama serves some of the best sushi I have ever eaten. The menu is comprehensive, so if members of your party do not eat sushi there is plenty to choose from. We visit Yama several times during the summer, as well as during the off-season. The sushi has always been fresh, high quality and just yummy! Don't miss it!

We have been to several sushi restaurants and Yama is our favorite. I normally get the sashimi deluxe, which always tastes fresh and melts in my mouth. Includes plenty of varieties of fish priced reasonable. Salad and miso soup also very good. Service is consistently good.

Fresh and delicious rolls. All of my choices were excellent. The only reason they don't get the fifth star is as I sat waiting AND waiting in the restaurant for my takeout...I received a phone call that it was ready. How long had it been ready? How could no one see me sitting there? Ending on an up note-try the... More

We have an abundance of excellent choices for sushi on the island that includes Ventnor and Margate. I love the sushi at Tomatoes and Miyako in Margate. But, if you don't mind a lack of liquor license, and want to avoid the prices and noise at Tomatoes, but still want excellent sushi, sashimi, and all sorts of specialty rolls, then... More
