I was sent here by a friend. When I pulled up I was not impressed that it was in a tiny store front BUT I am so glad I went in. The fish was fresh and the perfect temp.

Excellent fresh fish served as sashimi or sushi style. A small store front in downtown Denville. Went on a Wednesday evening and it was packed. The service was good, the restaurant was clean and the prices were affordable especially given the quality of food.We will return.

I dropped in to have a quick sushi lunch and liked this restaurant. The sushi was good and reasonably priced. I sat at the bar and received prompt and polite service. A good place to get sushi when in Denville.

Warm sushi chefs, friendly and inviting with fantastic sushi. Yama Special Roll and Yama Special Salad are two favorites. I like the cooked options and always order the Rockaway Roll and The Chicken Tempura Roll. We come here at least 3 or 4 times a month. Dinner, lunch and takeout. Closed on Sundays.

Thank njaloha23
