“Creative and Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

It can be hard to get a table on the weekend..so make a reservation!!! Well worth it. I am not always a fan of sushi but when it is as fresh and creatively prepared as this I can not get enough.The owner makes sauces from scratch. Try a side of her lemon sauce with your sushi.Yama Nachos are a fun starter and all the food is excellent. Now I can not eat shushi anywhere else, because it just does not compare.

“Yama Zakura”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Y-Z is my favorite restaurant. Anna is a wonderful hostess. Always order the Napoleon salad. I'm never disappointed.

“Yama keeps getting better.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

I've been coming here since they opened. The sushi and sashimi are very fresh and the presentation is a treat for the eyes. The fusion dishes are a wonderful blend of flavors and Anna is always creating new ones. Yama nachos are a great way to start a meal.

“My favorite sushi in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

We're from the area and have tried a number of Sushi places in the surrounding towns and Yama is our favorite. Nice atmosphere, great service and of course really, really delicious food. Lots of interesting choices and all have been great.

“Super sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Can't beat the quality of the sushi served at Yama's. Outstanding food and great service. Place may be a little cramped, but adds to the atmosphere. Is a little quieter on a weeknight. It really is one of the best restaurants in the area. The drinks are fantastic, too.
