This is a 'classic' neighborhood style Japanese restaurant, not fancy. I visited two different Saturdays recently and its open late which is really nice. First visit we focused on a mostly Sushi meal just adding some chicken Yakitori and Ohitashi (spinach) which made a very tasty meal. The draft Asahi beer was excellent, good variety of mixed drinks based on... More

We found this little gem around 10:30pm and when we left at 12:30 it was busier than when we arrived! The rolls were exploding with flavor, the seaweed salad was perfect. The bento boxes were filled with special treats........it was a fabulous find!

I was right around the corner and craving some sushi for the evening. I found sushi yams and decided to give it a try. I'm very glad I did. On Tuesdays they have $1 sushi. You only get one piece but I was able to try the spicy tuna, salmon, and crawfish. They were all very good but the spicy... More

This place offer zero ambiance but the sushi is fresh and husband and wife team that runs the place are refreshingly friendly and helpful. Your Saki jar will never run dry there.

In a spontaneous spur I've decided to jump on a plane and go to Dallas just because! By the time I arrived it looked up great places to eat but most of them were closed because it was midnight. I kept scrolling hoping to find anything and Voila! Sushi Yama was there. I drove over there and was greeted by... More

Sushi yama was a favorite place for us for many years. We were saddened when it closed +/- 18 months ago. Noticed it had re-opened as Yama Sushi. New owners and staff, with a few holdovers. Minor interior and decor changes. The food is as good or better than before. The rolls and sushi have that fresh clean quality that... More

Came here a last year for the first time and was blown away by the hole in the wall feeling but the sushi was excellent. Out of the 2 times coming, I've had great experiences with customer service and food! I recommend this place to many people!!

This is my go-to place when I'm craving good, non-americanized Japanese food. Be prepared for a little wait (especially if you go on Thursday, Wednesday and Saturday nights, as this is when they run their specials), but the food is well worth it. The inside of the restaurant is small, too, so you have the best chance of getting seated... More
