We've lived in the area for a while and just discovered this place. If you drive too fast down Rowland, you're going to miss this place. There is very little street parking and there is a small parking lot in the back. If you look...More

This is a great sushi restaurant. You can tell when you watch aficionados walk in and sit down with their own sushi sets. Other dishes are good, too. Servers are occasionally slightly snippy, but they're quick and generally attentive. Food is good.

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...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.

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...More
