Only come to this place if you have a SERIOUS love for sushi. If not, this place will not be worth the money, the cramped space and the temperamental waitstaff. That said, this place is hands down THE BEST sushi in the city. The freshest sushi every time and the specials rolls are TO DIE FOR. #5 and #7 are always a hit with everyone I bring.

I've tried all the places in city...Nobu, Sushi of Gari, Haru, Samba, Seki, etc. Yama is hands down the best of them all. They have the freshest fish every time I go. I recommend sitting at the bar because if you are going to Yama you are going for the food not for the ambiance.

Yama on Irving is my favorite Sushi spot in the city. The prices are somewhat high but the quality of the sushi is unmatched by other spots in the neighborhood. I do notice if I take out, the portions are smaller but when I eat there the fish is so fresh and tasty. The only real problem is the ambiance. They should seriously think about renovating that space. The carpets and walls are filthy and the space is cramped. A+ to the food!

Used to be pretty good, but now the sushi chefs just slop the sushi together in a big mess to get people in and out as fast as possible. Was pretty good years ago, but has seriously gone down hill.

Every time I try to cheap out and go somewhere a little less expensive, I regret it. Yama is worth the price. Be prepared, it is a cramped space, long wait, and a bit snooty. But, trust me, Yama is worth it.

Went with my fiancee and another couple on a Sat night around 9... Excellent food. Great atmosphere.... Excellent service.. Strongly recommend this restaurant.. We went to the downtown, NYC location.

Where to start... the moment we walked into the restaurant, the maitre d was very rude. He treated my friends and I as if we were little kids! When he was about to seat us, he yelled out across the restaurant saying, "Hey you! You! Come here. Follow me!" Who in their right minds seats a customer like that?? The waiters were totally inattentive... the atmosphere was not ideal. The tables, floors and the booth we sat at was very dirty and sticky! Besides that, the food was good, but very over priced!
