We went for dinner and tried may things like the seaweed salad and the shrimp tempura along with many saki bombs and tons of sushi. We will definitely be returning soon.

Loved this visit! We have lived here for 15 years and for some crazy reason, never tried Sushi Yama! This place is perfection! The food is to die for! As good as mikimotos all the way up in Wilmington! Highly recommend the sushi and Tempura entree:)

Sushi Yama is the go to sushi place! We've had sushi in New York, Philly and Wilmington at some really expensive Michelin restaurants and Sushi Yama matches them all. Kevin the head chef is truly and artist in the preparation of the plates and the sushi is always so fresh you would think they went and caught the fish when... More

I don't pass through Middletown, Delaware very often, but I when I have the time I make a point to travel through and stop at Sushi Yama. The food quality is consistently great, good service, and reasonably priced. I love the Aki Bento Box, shown in the attached photo. It is no surprise that it ranks at the top of... More

This is a great restaurant in the Middletown area. The food and service are great and if how crowded the restaurant is indicates its popularity then this place is very popular. The only problem that I have is that some of the cooked sushi dishes use imitation crab.

Tough to beat. We've traveled extensively and we seldom find anyone that prepares better sushi than Kevin does. The next closest sushi prep we've found is in NYC. We always try and go on off hours so that the sushi bar is not crowded.

We come here often and never had anything I didn't enjoy. Love their speciality rolls they come up with. We had a very good female server at the bar this past week. She was very attentive.

I went here with my cousin and it was wonderful. The service was excellent and the servers were very friendly. We're had the sushi boat for two. It came with salad, Miso soup, and a full boost full of mixed sushi. And it was all delicious! Do be aware that the sushi here is not the fancy americanized rolls you... More

This small restaurant has incredible service and food. Plus, you can watch the sushi chiefs prepare the food right there in front of you. There is something for everyone on the menu including seaweed salad.
