Excellent sushi. A fun place to go with friends. Some nights we are not up to the crowds (it can be quite loud), so we've started getting take out. Delicious!

Simply, the BEST! Yes - here in the quiet suburb of Northboro, MA. We have been enjoying the hospitality of Anna (owner) and her rise to local culinary stardom, since 2007! Highest quality sushi and seafood dishes, land- based entree’s and inventive cocktails. Sashimi, Nigiri, Tempura, Sushi - all delicious. The Yama Nachos and Beef Satay appetizers are super tasty. For dinner try the delicious “Anna’s Crispy Chilean Sea Bass” - melts in your mouth! The maki rolls are numerous - my favorite’s are Spicy Tuna Roll, the Jaxson, The Belichick and the Northborough. My wife is not a seafood fan but always enjoys the beef and poultry choices. Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken and Bourbon Beef Tips are both filling and flavorful. The service is always professional and attentive- beginning with a warmed damp cloth to cleanse your hands and often a table visit by Anna herself for a warm welcome! Highly recommend a visit to Yama Zakura!

One of our favorite restaurants to go with friends. Our kids don’t eat sushi. Yama always has excellent service, food and drinks. It is a staple for nights out or lunches. And take out too. Best sushi around by far! You will often see the owner visiting with the regulars. Nice atmosphere and comfortable.

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 is beyond me obviously there are few people in this area who have experienced good sushi....I suggest making the short trip to Sudbury where there are at least some pretty decent places.

If you want a quick place to drop in (or takeout) for sushi, Yama works. The service was ok, the noise level very loud, not very zen. Pretty good food but not the best in the county.
