The restaurant is on the second floor of a commercial building in downtown Wellesley Hills. We had mostly sushi, which was good all around. Service was quick and attentive. We were able to bring our own beer, since alcohol is not sold in Wellesley.

I have been going to this place since it opened in 1995. Everyone is courteous and friendly. The spicy salmon roll is the best! Love ordering trays of sushi for family parties. Never disappoint.

A nice space on the second floor feels like a private retreat. Lunchtime bento boxes are reasonable and offer a good mix of food. It is rarely crowded, so staff do not make one feel rushed, but crowded enough to feel like a thriving business. Dinner is more expensive and the menu options less suited to our family.

Located in a most improbable spot in Wellesley Hills, this is the best sushi restaurant in the Boston area. Everything is superb and the staff is friendly. BYOB, which I like, as they do not have a liquor license. They're more than happy to cork and pour for no added charge. They also do a booming take-out business.

Yama is a modest little sushi/Japanese restaurant here in Wellesley Hills but it good quality, close and convenient. Due to the Wellesley drinking laws it doesn't have a liquor license but that only makes it a perfect family place to go. Like a lot of places in town you can BYOB if you want. It is one of our kids favorite places to eat - they love the shrimp tempura and my wife and I enjoy the sushi/sashimi whenever we come. Always a satisfying expererience.
