We went there for an early dinner (4:30+/-) and there was 1 table seated, 2 people by the bar and that was it. The server was very young (Daughter of owner). She was funny and far less stiff than how she was with the other table. She took drink/appetizer order and suggested other things when asked which she said was... More

Yama Sushi has a very small interior but is cozy and nice inside. The staff is friendly and the sushi is really good but the service is slow and I don't think they have enough servers. My biggest complaint is when I'm left sitting at the table waiting for the staff to bring the bill and then pick up payment.... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat on Christmas night and ended up here. I happened to be the only one who ordered something that qualified for free miso soup and salad (which were pretty good) even though what we all ordered would have gotten the soup and salad included almost anywhere else. The entrees are average in price and... More

I have been going to Yama Sushi for 4 years. The sushi is fresh and well prepared. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. I'm usually quite predictable in my sushi choice - cucumber roll, salmon roll, spicy tuna roll. But I've expanded my horizons significantly and now enjoy a wide variety of sushi from the Yama menu. During my... More

Stopped in a Wednesday night to meet a friend. Not knowing the area, we had to rely on Google maps, which led us a bit astray; as mentioned in other reviews, this restaurant is tucked away in a strip mall. Kept it simple - Edamame, Tuna, Salmon, and Yellow Tail Rolls. All were delicious and very fresh - some of... More

So we've eaten there a few times. The sushi is priced fairly. The fish is fair. Service was so so at the last visit. Not great compared to some other local places. Wouldnt go back. Better local options.

The lunch at Yama Sushi was fast and delicious as usual. I have been going to Yama of years and they never disappoint. The price is reasonable and the Sushi is always fresh. Love them!

I am never disappointed by the food at Yama, whether carry out, or dine in. The sushi is always of the highest quality, with deep red tuna (higher fat content, more flavor), tremendous salmon, you name it. They have some of the most creative rolls in town as well. You can't go wrong no matter what you order!!

We mostly do carry out, but the fish in the sushi and sashimi is extremely fresh and delicious. Top quality. Their specialty rolls are tastey as well. We did dine in one time and the service was a little slow, but it could have been a fluke.
