I have been going to Yama for over 4 years now and if I wrote this 3-4 years ago I would have given it 5 stars easy. It was my most favorite resturant in NB and more importantly really the only legit good sushi resturant...More

Heavy on the surgery sauces and rice, low quality fish... some many boast about the lobster bomb... I think it is a perfect example of my comments -way over priced canned/frozen lobster masked with a sugary sauce -awful! Why there are so many good reviews...More

Heard a lot of good press about Yama and we finally went. Smaller than expected and you are sit very close to other tables, but overall nice atmosphere. We shared the Gyoza (vegetable pork steamed dumplings) and the sauce was great with it! Perfectly seasoned....More

Yama Zakura is the only place to have sushi. The Lobster Bomb is a must and the Belichek is s treat. Don't miss the coconut noodles...we always end up bringing most of the noodles home. Great service, you're not rushed.
