The lunch at Yama Sushi was fast and delicious as usual. I have been going to Yama of years and they never disappoint. The price is reasonable and the Sushi is always fresh. Love them!

I am never disappointed by the food at Yama, whether carry out, or dine in. The sushi is always of the highest quality, with deep red tuna (higher fat content, more flavor), tremendous salmon, you name it. They have some of the most creative rolls in town as well. You can't go wrong no matter what you order!!

We mostly do carry out, but the fish in the sushi and sashimi is extremely fresh and delicious. Top quality. Their specialty rolls are tastey as well. We did dine in one time and the service was a little slow, but it could have been a fluke.

We stopped in here for dinner last nite...got a coupon in the mail and we thought we'd give it a try. Surprisingly, there was no wait given we had no reservation, a weekend nite and in our area! The food and sushi was very good, they have over 20 plus specialty rolls and all the dishes are very reasonably priced.... More

Everything we ordered was very tasty, especially the terriyaki sauce and the miso soup. The service is fast and friendly, and there's a TV to watch. The sushi and rice were also excellent, the fish very fresh. I definitely recommend this place, and I'm coming back!

My wife and I decided to order a couple rolls of sushi and have some Miso soup as a light dinner tonight, and as every time we visit Yama Sushi, we were very satisfied. We ordered the 'Sweet Mom Roll' which was a crispy shrimp tempura with lobster salad and was heaven in your mouth and, we also ordered a... More

I could be wrong with how my sushi was made, but I don't remember having lettuce as a part of a roll. There was a good bit of lettuce and small amount of roll, spyder, shrimp temp, and eel roll mainly cucumber and rice.26.00 was not good

The wife and I ate here on a Sunday night 45 min. before closing. There was no one else there when we walked in…too sad so many were missing out. Another couple came in a little while later. This place is in a strip mall…don’t let that fool you…go there. Based on this one meal it was perfect. We shared... More

I have eaten here about a half dozen times and have always enjoyed great sushi and sashimi but what separates Yama Sushi in a county with many great sushi places is the presentation. Each item served is an art piece and a visual as well as gastronomic delight.
