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

Living in Fairfax there are plenty of options...living in Fairfax and craving a Front Royal sushi place...unheard of. First trip after Rappahannock Cellars led me to this sushi place and beyond words with the best service and sushi in the DMV. Super affordable, excellent quality, and already celebrated multiple birthdays and our engagement here. This is now our go to... More

Sushi in Front Royal? Shockingly amazing. Start with the sesame salad and the miso soup and be adventurous in your sushi roll choices! Some of my favorites are the California Crunch Roll, Spider Roll, and Bulgogi Roll. Everything is fresh, the value is amazing, and the staff is friendly. Definitely worth visiting.

I would highly recommend this place if your in the mood for sushi! I have been to other sushi places and they just do not compare. I happened to go here instead of another sushi restaurant in town because my boyfriend convinced me to go. I don't usually admit he is right about things lol but he was spot on... More
