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?

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

We have been frequenting Yama since they opened. It's our favorite spot for sushi. The restaurant was recently remodeled… Great Job! The food is always very good wether you sit down or take out. Yama always has interesting specials on the board too.

This sushi is the best at the shore by far. The only reason its only four stars is because the service is usually kind of slow. But the sushi is awesome, you must try!

Yama is fantastic for take out. Eat in can be difficult because it is so crowded usually. Quick, easy and healthy. Consistently good.

The food was good. My wife and I got multiple sushi rolls and enjoyed the food very much. Pricing was average and nothing to complain about. While eating the sushi chef began to make very loud noises as if he was trying to clear his lungs. This is not what I wanted to hear while eating raw fish and it... More
