In my humble opinion it is one of the best sushi restaurants in Portland. We have had dinner there quite often and had two parties there. The restaurant never disappoints, what it described in the menu it produces in reality. The staff is friendly and...More

My husband and I wandered into Yama after 9 for a quick bite and were surprised by the excellent sushi. He is a vegetarian and I'm pescatarian, and we both ate well! Service was quick and the food was excellent!

Great restaurant in The Pearl. The staff is great, especially the host at the door. He kept us informed as there was a wait for seating. Good sushi and ambiance. Outside seating in warmer weather.

We eat here every time we come to PDX! Favorites are Hamachi Kama, tuna tower and G 50 Sake...(locally made believe it or not!) Service is great...and we love to sit outside or at the bar.

I live part time in Hawaii, where sushi huts are ubiquitous. I've had good sushi, and I've eaten sushi at places where I'd never go back (especially after hepatitis A outbreaks and ensuing litigation). Yama is one of my new faves in the Pearl District....More

Visiting Portland I expected to have really fresh sashimi but the portion size on my bento failed dismally, as did the freshness. Sorry, but Houston as you beat in this area. The artistry, creative assembly was fantastic. In all fairness I would rate this establishment...More

This restaurant has been so consistent. We have been going here since the year it opened and never have been disappointed. The fish is fresh, rolls are very creative and combinations are excellent. The staff is very friendly too! Mina is our favourite in the...More
