“Just about the best sushi, and the best for a strip mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Walk in to Yamahana and be pleasantly surprised. While located in a small neighborhood strip mall, it is an authentic sushi restaurant with fresh and delicious food. The menu has many choices, and the lunch special every day is a deal you cannot pass up for the price. The food is fresh and made before your eyes with culinary expertise, and the taste is fantastic. There is cooked sushi (if there truly is such a thing) available for those less adventurous - the Woodstock roll and the Maryland Crab roll are two of the best I have ever had. If you like sushi, you can travel a distance to a fancier place and pay a lot more; me? I'll come here, pay much less, and eat as well or better than you. It is a BYOB place (no liquor license). The owners are very friendly. I eat there regularly. The Dragon and Rainbow rolls, as well as the eel and avocado, are the best!

“There are some good sushi rolls...just have to know what to order.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Have dined here many times. The edamame and miso soup are good. Some of the sushi rolls are pretty good...california, Dragon Roll...do not order the teriyaki chicken or beef.
No alcohol license, so you have to bring your own.

Yamahana is our favorite place for sushi. We are definitely regulars, almost every Thursday night. So fresh and delicious.
