My son only ate california rolls until we came here for dinner. We tried their lobster rolls and after that, he was hooked on sushi rolls. They were delish. We also tried other rolls and their udon, they also didn't disappoint. We try to come here when we're in the area.

I found this spot back in the late 80's. Moved to Michigan, and was glad as heck to find that Yashima was not only still here.. but still FANTASTIC! Great classic and some new surprises.

Wanted Japanese and the wait at Bishamon was an hour, so we went to Yashima. My friend order a beef teriyaki place, as she doesn't care for fish of any kind and beef teriyaki is about as adventurous as she cares to get. The combination dinner was $18.00, terribly overpriced for the minimal amount of beef, very thinly sliced, overcooked... More

Always great meals. We like the salads, the combo's, the sushi, the sashimi, the udon....we like everything. A bit of a wait on weekends and it's a chance to talk to your famly.

Not sure what needs to be said, they make great sushi. They do not have the biggest selection of rolls in the world but the one's they do have are terrific! Besides, too many sushi places go crazy with rolls and lose sight of quality sushi in my opinion. Fresh fish expertly prepared, in Covino of all places! Have had... More

By far my favorite local sushi restaurant. Been coming here for 15 years and never dissappointed. Always fresh fish and good portions. Very few can rival Yashimas.

If you are looking for classic sushi, fresh and delicious....this place is for you! This sushi bar has been in the same location for over 25 years and the quality of the food has stayed the same and in some cases, gotten better! My family has been going here for 27 years, our daughter tasted her first sushi there (and... More

This place may be small, but it is huge on service, quality and value. Thursday night's sashimi and sushi was fresh, magnificently presented and tasty. Chef's choice is the way to go and Hideo never misses. The cooked food aka tempura and teriyaki was crisp and equally delightful. You cannot go wrong here. Come early and often.
