I'm a regular client and I love sushi at Yama. It's really good! People are not always nice because they super stressed and they not really into Italian (language) but the food it's worth it. I always spend lovely evenings

The food is not bad. The food is better at lunch because the food is more controlled because there is less people.

I didn't know what to expect, having heard both bad and good about this restaurant. The sushi was very good, I really enjoyed it. However, the service was slow and the waiters were never smiling.
