By far the best sushi place in the world. A must try, amazing food for an incredible price. I came around at least once every two weeks, and wish i can eat here everyday

“Authentic, filling and good value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I came by on a late Monday evening for a dinner. I was very graciously greeted and sat at one of the tables. The restaurant is cozy - so if you have a large group (anything over 4), I'd suggest checking in first!
I had the Tuna Sake Maki and a Chicken Katsu with Udon. The portions were just right, with the right amount of spice and great, fresh ingredients. I also had some green tea to make the experience complete.
The service was great and quick, the proprietors were lovely. The place being the size it is had lovely Asian pop music in the background which suited the decor and the beat as a whole.
The bill came to £12 which may not be cheap as chips, but definitely a great price for the type of meal, quality, ambiance and service.

“Excellent Sushi in Sheffield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Five friends and I visited Yama on Tuesday evening and we were all staggered by the quality and taste of all their dishes we had.
This is a proper high grade sushi establishment not comparable with the pseudo sushi chain places so prevalent these days. You must try it NOW.

Couple of things to note:

Yama is quite a small place, so evening bookings are essential
They don't take bank cards, it's a cash only affair
Take your smartphone, check in at Yama on Facebook and get a free appetiser

All in all an excellent place to enjoy Japanese food in all it's glory

“So good - We just finished and want to go back for more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Yama sushi rocked our world tonight. We have eaten at quite a few sushi spots over the years, and were blown away by the quality, freshness, and explosive but subtle tastes of Yama. Highly recommend you give it a visit - It's a small spot so make sure to reserve seating ahead of time!
