We were seated at the bar which was nice because we got to watch the sushi being made. I had the lobster roll which was very nice. My parents aren’t sushi fans so they ordered other items (breaded pork and cooked salmon). I think they...More

My husband and I wandered into Yama after 9 for a quick bite and were surprised by the excellent sushi. He is a vegetarian and I'm pescatarian, and we both ate well! Service was quick and the food was excellent!

Great restaurant in The Pearl. The staff is great, especially the host at the door. He kept us informed as there was a wait for seating. Good sushi and ambiance. Outside seating in warmer weather.

Justifiably busy sushi restaurant in the northern section of the Pearl District. Sushi is well above average with some standouts. Just had some remarkably well-priced Copper River salmon sashimi on our most recent visit. The sunrise, sake bomb and kobe rolls are al excellent. The...More
