“AMAZING food, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2009

Oh how do I love love love Yama's. They have an extensive menu and EVERYTHING is delicious and fresh. Their sushi and cuisine in general is far superior to that of Koto's, the other Japanese restaurant in the Lebanon area.

The decor is rather dated, so don't expect a great ambience. However, the service is attentive and the food is out of this world - which is the important thing to us.

“Yamalicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2008

Our favorite restaurant in the Upper Valley. When guests come for a visit, we treat them to a meal at Yama. Especially recommend their Lebanon rolls. The staff is kind and caters to children -- our 3 toddlers love their miso soup and even Korean side dishes (imagine your child engulfing bean sprouts and brocolli like there's no tomorrow). Without a doubt, we would highly recommend this restaurant. The food is fantastic and so reasonably priced.

“yummy Yama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2008

Never had a bad meal here. I always look forward to lunch when i'm in the West Leb neighborhood. The pricing is way reasonable for onolicous grinds. Never had to wait long to be seated or served even tho more and more folks are discovering this place.

“Great dinner, charming staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2008

Although Yama is one of the only non-chain restaurants in the Upper Valley (certainly in West Lebanon), it still would rise to the top even with more competition. Great food and nice service - it can be a bit slow, but that is the nature of a small, locally run restaurant. Their food makes great take out, too!
