Birthday Outing

I am a huge sushi lover. We went out for my birthday and came here at the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. We ordered the sushi and sashimi for two and two specialty roles. It was everything we could do to finish it. The roles were great and put together so they did not... read more

Yama is our go to Sushi, fresh, reasonably priced, always delicious and efficient, if not friendly service. A nice selection of appetizers, wide range of saki plus traditional Japanese beers goes with the best sushi around - we can never get past the sushi and sashimi for two which provides a nice variety of rolls, sushi and sashimi.

Prompt service. Good katsudonburi. Not quite as good as that at Yosaku (DC) when the owner makes it, but quite serviceable. Rich miso soup. House sake reasonably priced.

The service is ok, the location isn't special, but the food is excellent and extremely well priced! The dragon roll and tuna avocado were both excellent... add a salad w ginger dressing for a $1 --- it's worth it!

Whenever i am in the DC area and i feel like a Sushi dinner, the only place to come in mind is Sushi Yama. Fresh Sushi, excellent service and they keep adding on new dishes on regular bases. Service is very friendly. Make sure you make a booking specially weekend. If you are a Uni lover like me Tuesday's is... More

Located at the end of a nondescript strip center, Yama is small but very attractive and clean (looking and smelling) with attentive service and impeccably fresh ingredients. It is easily the best and most enjoyable of the Japanese restaurants we've been to in the Washington area. A friend who is really a sushi afficionado from many trips to Japan says... More

I have been a fan of Yama Sushi for more than 6 years now. They have great sushi rolls, sashimi but I can also recommend their entrees. I recommend the dragon fly roll, the bubba roll, the sake sashimi or the spicy shrimp puff (delicious). Make sure to have a reservation especially on weekends since it can be very crowded.... More

We normally choose the sushi bar, so that we can see what looks good and order accordingly. the food has been consistenely very good. (While this is my first review of the place, we have eaten there over a dozen times, since it is local.) No,... More

Sunday date night and Yama does not disappoint. Shared a fabulously delicious sushi and sashimi platter for two which came with a nice miso and salad. The plate was a great variety of rolls, and very fresh sushi. The evening was topped off with dessert, which we never have at Japanese restaurants, but the cheesecake tempura and red bean paste...
