The foods good, and you won't go home hungry. Prices aren't too bad, but it's not all you can eat. Can't book reso's so make sure your there at a good time to get a table. Fresh and made to order so can't complain.

We originaly wanted to go to a different place, but they were closed, so we ended up here. Glad we did. We got the sushi for two and loved most all of it. The the best we've had, but a great time in a small town. Service was...there, nothing extrordinary. I would go again.

They say that the best sushi in Calgary is in Fernie, and they're not wrong. All the usual favourites plus a few local twists. The real thing, though, is the setting. So many Asian eateries have neon lights and totally unwelcoming interiors. Yamagoya is all dark and cosy with funky art. Only downside is the popularity means it is always... More

This place is so popular that you dont even have to read this review, just ask one of the locals and they will confirm that this is a must go in Fernie!

Food was very good but seating a little difficult to get into. Curry roll and prawn tempura excellent. Wait wasn't too bad.

We asked many locals where to go for dinner, and Yamagoya's was the number one choice from everyone - we had to try it after that! Great food, fun quirky server, and sitting outside for our meal was wonderful. We tried some new things and enjoyed it all :). We went later in the evening, so there wasn't any lineup,... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always delicious. I especially recommend the house salad, it is so yummy - I wish I could make that dressing at home! We always get the Gyoza and the sushi is some of the best! If you leave room for dessert, the mousse and the sticky date are to die for!... More

Went here on an overnight stay in Fernie. Was about a half hour wait for a couple, but there were tables where we could have a drink while we waited. Got the kimchi, which was nice and quite spicy, and the Yamagoya Black, which included better than most miso, a number of specialties and some nigiri and sashimi. Also included... More

Really good sushi! The service was great. It was very busy, so expect a wait. I would recommend the curry roll and the tempura tuna roll!
