Love their sushi. Service can be slow but always friendly smiling faces. Rolls are made well, stay together no matter how many pieces of fish they wrap in and on. Nice job!

The sushi was mealy one time, a hot dish came out cold, order was incorrect - that kind of stuff. I recall wondering what was going on here... More

We were looking for a simple sushi dinner. Tried 4 rolls Pink Lady, Crunchy , Paul's and Dragon. Really like the Pink Lady and Paul's roll. Price of most rolls (special..) were around $10-$14. Rolls were large.

The soup was a nice temperature but it was pretty much only a clear broth. the rice was okay. The shrimp hibachi was way overcooked and dry. No sauce came with it so it was hard to swallow the shrimp. I came with a friend who got a different dish, and hers suited her because she loves bland food. Service... More

We had the H &M roll, Boston roll. Both were delicious. Be sure to try the firecracker sauce, too. Excellent, friendly service.

We visited here on the Saturday before Valentine's Day! The atmosphere was nice; the food was absolutely delicious, and the service was friendly and efficient. My husband used to work in the restaurant indusrtry; so, he is VERY overly picky about restaurants, but he even told me that he can't wait to come back. Great spot!

We live in Greenville, SC and whenever we're in Charlotte we try and eat at Yama. This trip we were having our car serviced and took the opportunity to have lunch here. My wife and I shared the Bento Box which came with Miso soup and the Uptown Roll and the Downtown Roll. Everything is fresh, very well presented and... More
