“Best Asian cucine around”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

One of the best sushi place I ever been. The atmosphere and service is outstanding and the owner, Ana , is always present at the tables, visiting her customers even calling them by their first names. Food is fantastic

“deliciousness in a strip mall!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Met two friends here last night. It was fantastic! Not like any other sushi place i have ever been to. Apparently they expanded and renovated within the past year. I would say that it is a small place but apparently it has doubled in size! We went at night and it was very dark inside, tealights on each table, no real restaurant lighting. There were several specials that were on a large chalkboard that was visible from everyseat. We ordered three rolls and all were fantastic, and quite large. Ordered the Belichick, Red Sox, and Lobster Bomb. The flavors were all fabulous and I have to say that none were really spicy at all (next time, i would order mine with extra spice). I started with the Lychee Martini and it was a great way to start the evening! The prices were average to a bit high for specialty rolls ~$16-$19 for the rolls, my martini was $8 and Sapporos are $5 (they are in the bottle not the double cans). Our waitress was extremely friendly and patient with us as we chatted a while before ordering. Once our order was placed, the sushi came out promptly. I would highly recommend reservations. I called at 4pm for a 6:30 reservation for 3 and they were barely able to give it to us. Luckily, we were a bit late, so our table was ready.

There is a small bar area with a few tvs, seating at the bar (sushi bar) and about 3 high tops that seat 2 (i think). I will definitely return and highly recommend! Don't be discouraged by the fact that it is in a strip mall!!

“Try it you will like it, it is amazing and different from what you have had before..”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

We have been going to Yama Zakura's for the past 5 years and everyone we bring with us whether family, friends or customers all rave about how different and good the food is. You know when you have been going to a place for 5 years and have this experience that you have passed the test of time.
