The food is not bad. The food is better at lunch because the food is more controlled because there is less people.

Was a very positive experience as always. Place was packed (as always) but having made a reservation our table was ready on the dot. Food excellent as always. Service professional and quick. Realy good experience and added to a fabulous evening.

Best Japanese restaurant in the region, by far. We come here regularly with family and friends and have done so for a large number of years. Have never been disappointed. Very good quality fish, nice variation in dishes, both in sushi as other dishes.

The ambient is gorgeous as well as the service and the food. I had a sushi boat for two people with my sister and there was a little to much sashimi, maybe ask for more sushi. But the tempura was amazing, definitely try it out....More

Or maybe second best, because Parq in Lugano is probably the real top of the list in terms of quality. But Parq is three times the price of Yama. I love Yama because the quality is very good and you can order on the phone...More
