I've been to Yama on a number of occasions, and I'll continue to go back because the fish is great and the price is reasonable. Look beyond the dive-y decor and out-of-place carpet, and you'll find a solid restaurant with great sashimi and nigiri, and...More

I normally go to their Irving Place location, but overall the sushi at this place is one of the freshest you can get in the city without breaking the bank. My friend and I especially LOVE the spicy mayo. At the end of our meals,...More

Travelers know that the number of locals in a restaurant typically indicates how good it is. Well, this is the place New Yorkers go when they want the freshest sushi without pomp and circumstance. When I lived in NY, Yama was a staple on my...More

Was introduced to Yama by a friend and we had excellent quality sushi there. Interesting rolls and the maki sushi were delicious. High quality and very fresh fish! Tiny place and very crowded but that's only because it's so good.

I lived in New York for 10 years and only discovered Yama Sushi in the last 2 years of my stay. If I could eat sushi every day...this is the place for me. The Maitre-D is friendly enough, and the staff...well they are simply there...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
