“This is THE sushi and Japanese restaraunt in IC!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We've tried them all in Iowa City/Coralville continue to be drawn back here for good reason.

I suppose we've eaten at Oyama at least 20 times. Each time is consistently GREAT!

The wait staff is awesome, and a quick word to the sushi chefs on the way in will give you a hint at what they think would be the best selection for the day. The staff is very attentive, and if you need that one last piece of sushi to finish off the meal at the last minute, they are right there to take care of your needs.

The sushi has never failed us, and their house special rolls are interesting and diverse.

Looking for great sushi or rolls in the IC area?? A visit to Oyama will not disappoint.

“Oyama Oyummy!”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

How can you argue with a place where you are given hot towels as part of your dining experience? Straight to the point- the sushi delicious! And so was everything else. Attentive waitstaff kept the food rolling. Well worth the visit.

“average sushi”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

The food was average.. just okay. The inside is very nice and spacious. The waiters seemed pretty nice. There was a crowd of loud people in there also, which was a bit irritating as well.

“It was good but not now.”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Used to be good but the old owner has moved about a year ago. Now, it is so bad in every aspects (services, price, especially food). Will never go back again.
