There are two Yamas. One in Hanover and one in West Lebanon. I know some people who eat regularly at Yama and prefer the one in West Lebanon. It is easy to miss it on the Main Street but parking is easy as they have a parking lot.
I met a friend of mine here who is vegan. We had steamed dumplings, sushi, teriyaki tofu and a variety of sauces and tidbits in front of us. We couldn't eat everything. I had a dragon roll with eel on top, which was wonderfully fresh. My friend loved the teriyaki tofu. There were times we were enjoying the food so much, we were silent.
Service was quick and there were people waiting to get a table. The wait on this Friday night while Dartmouth College is in session but it isn't tourist season, we waited about 10 minutes for a table. Be prepared to wait for a table any night.
With all the food we ate, a bag to take home and two sodas, we paid $50 including the tip.
To find Yama in West Lebanon can be a bit tricky at night. It is set off from Main Street but there is a sign by the road. If you are coming from Hartford/Wilder/Hanover area, go through the West Lebanon light (known as "The Point" by the locals) that intersects Main Street and Bridge Street. Start looking on your left for the Yama sign after you go through the light.
If you are coming from West Lebanon Route 12A or the miracle mile, you'll go through the light at Mascoma Bank and the library. Start looking on your right a bit up the road but don't pass the light at the point.
