My husband and I really wanted to try sushi and heard Yama was the place to go. I was a little skeptical since, let's face it, it's St Albans VT in a strip mall. One of my bucket list goals is to eat food created by Morimoto of the Food Network. I thought before we do that I better make sure I can eat raw fish. OMG, the sushimi at Yama was incredible. It was creamy and not at all fishy. We got a sushi and sushimi app. We figured no great loss if we didn't like it. The problem is that we loved it and I have discovered my new favorite food. We also got the hibachi shrimp and scallops. That was ok. The vegetables and seafood were well cooked but have had better in the usual Japanese steakhouses. And really, how could it compare to the sushimi??? Our waitress was adorable and was interested why we chose now and Yama to try sushi. How could I explain Morimoto?? We will definitely go back! There were only 8 tables but we didn't need reservations. I expect that will change. I hope this little gem can make it!! Everyone I have talked to who has eaten there has raved about it. Good luck Yama :-)
