WE had been a week in Australia and were craving some kind of Asian and found this place. We both loved what we had, my salad looked so pretty I took a photo of it. Tasted pretty good as well.

I was exhausted from shopping on Saturday, looking for a peaceful and nice cafe to have a break . I walked in Yama cafe in QVB, a very friendly staff took me to a table with the nice city view. They have many kinds of...More

Very nice lunch in lovely surrounding. We had a very good ice coffee followed by good katsu steak and wakame salad. Staff are very courteous and service was excellent.

While we didn't have a main meal or order food from their menu - we had coffee and cake of the day - it was great. The staff were so friendly, quick to assist us (we had a baby with us) and the coffee was...More

I was staying at a hotel across the street; hungry after a long journey, I headed into the beautiful QVB building and to Yama, on its top story. The atmosphere is nice--bright and sunny. The menu offered a nice variety of Asian food and a...More

When we finally got our food, it was delicious. I got the teriyaki chicken roll and it was everything I wanted, since I don’t eat fish. However, my friend’s order was wrong, and the lady serving us seemed like she hated her life. Felt bad...More

Good food, great service, reasonable price and a beautiful location. The tempura was divine - light crispy batter and the agadashi tofu was the best I've ever tasted.

This is not the type of place I would usually go as I would rather somewhere more authentic and I dislike the QVB. However, the coffee is very good. The zaru soba was good but it didn't come with the wakame that was listed on...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
