Yamafuji serves both Hibachi grill food and sushi. Neither is exceptional, but both are good. Sometimes the chefs get a bit carried away with the Hibachi act and the food can suffer, but it usually works out okay. Worth a visit if you want a change from standard Chinese fare, or if you want sushi in Front Royal!

Yumm sushi! We ordered the tempura combo that came with 3 sets of delicious sushi rolls (6 pcs each). For the main course, I had the bulgogi box which was also good, although the rice that wasn't sticky enough was quite a challenge to eat with chopsticks. But I managed. The place was really busy and there was only one... More

We stopped here on our way to Skyline Drive. The Miso soup was tasty but not hot enough. The salad was excellent. We ordered the Tempura Sushi which was fresh and well made. Also, we had vegetable fried dumplings which were very good too. My daughter and I ordered the Bulgogi box. Very enjoyable. They had forgot my wife's order... More

My first time at a Japanese restaurant and was totally shocked that there was one in Front Royal!!! Very good, service was great and helpful since it was my first time I didn't really know what I wanted. Very nicely decorated, outside appearance looked a little blah, but it was very nice! Will return

We have enjoyed the sushi along with the hibachi experience to boot. We absolutely love the both. The chicken liver apps are phenomenal. Our sushi favorites are the salmon/cream cheese roll and the tempura sushi. The atmosphere is nice and clean as well. The waitstaff are attentive and polite. We will entertain our family and friends there in the future... More

I used to love this place. Then I went for a birthday dinner and they served me skate or Pollock rolled up to look like a scallop. They were very embarrassed when I pointed it out. It was a huge disappointment. I have not been back since , that was a while ago. Hopefully they stopped trying to fool people... More

My family ordered Sashimi (regular), Tuna Lover's sushi plate, Yama salad and assorted tempura. Very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the seafood. We liked the presentation (photos attached). The hostess was very gracious and checked up on us during our meal (not too ofter, not too seldom). We ordered desert - green tea ice cream and mango ice cream.... More

I'm sorry to say I have avoided this restaurant based upon the outside appearance. After reading several positive reviews I decided to give it a try as there just aren't that many good restaurant choices in Front Royal. I am happy to report the outside appearance does not carry over to the inside. The restaurant was very clean with nice... More

While driving into town for a vacation we looked for a restaurant that was not a chain. Enjoying sushi and Japanese food we decided to try Yamafuji. What a pleasant surprise. The service was great and the server even explained the different types of fish for a young guest in our party. We really enjoyed the sushi and tempura dinners.... More
