Description: Yamamori has a fine mixture of both traditional and modern menu selections. Not only do we serve fresh sashimi, nigiri sushi, and have an endless list of tasty sushi rolls, but we also have a vast assortment of options for vegetarians and those who have not yet acquired a palate for raw fish. On the opposite end of the spectrum, for true sushi lovers, we offer many delicacies that are not easily found elsewhere. Also if you are in the mood for rice wine, we have an extensive selection of popular sake to enjoy with your food. If you have a large party to entertain, Yamamori offers a banquet room service for your convenience. We encourage you to make reservations prior to your visit.Yamamori specializes in creating a warm environment for our customers to relax and dine, and we always welcome new friends. Since opening in 2003, we have continued to help celebrate our Yamamori community on every occasion. Drop in for a visit!

This sushi place is terrific. Great fresh food, the staff is friendly and the owners are the nicest people too. This is our go-to place for family celebrations.

I've been going to Yamamori since they opened 8 years ago - about 25 times. The food is always excellent and the service is great. And, the prices are very reasonable. We frequently suggest Yamamori as a convenient meeting place for friends whether we just want dinner or have something to discuss. Great atmosphere.

We love good sushi and live nearby, so we've tried Yamamori several times. The menu is rather adventurous, with lots of interesting choices. The dining room is pleasant enough, service is rather cold. The quality of the food is a bit inconsistent, generally OK, sometimes disappointing, and sometimes very good. We come back occasionally because it's convenient, but we enjoy Mobu in Santa Cruz, only a few miles south, a lot more.

My favorite kind of suhi is unagi and every time I go here i find it disappointing. It's either too dry, too fishy or has bones in it. If unagi is your fave too, save the trouble and to to Rumble Fish just down the road.

I live in Santa Cruz County and have tried most of the sushi places around. Yamamori is my favorite. I am addicted to several specific rolls: the Salmon Volcano, the Black and Silver, and the Ebi Crunch. All so good. Oh, I am getting hungry just thinking about it. The atmosphere and staff are a bit lacking, but the food is so good that I could care less.
