Right across the street from the hotel and next to Bigby's. Do need to go downstairs to find! Excellent sushi and miso soup. Highly recommend!!!! Inexpensive but good!

Sushi Yama reminds me of the little sushi shops in Tokyo! It is tucked away in the basement of the McKay tower. Best place for lunch or a quick snack!
I have never had a bad roll there! For something fun, try the baby octopus is excellent! So is their seaweed salad! and the miso is perfect!

This is a (literally) hidden sushi gem in downtown GR. With two other sushi places on Monroe Center, I was surprised to find Sushi Yama and discover it has been around for years! They have a large, diverse selection of rolls at very good prices. I would not consider it a sit down restaurant, although they do have some tables.
I've only ever ordered takeout and they do a good job of packaging everything (including soup) so that it does not spill. The rolls, salad, soup, edamame...its all good! It is only one man and an assistant and their fish is always fresh.

This restaurant is located on the lower level of a shopping center, so the "dining area" is set up out in the interior walkway outside. Everyone I saw there was ordering take out, and so did I. Delicious sushi, with the added benefit of to go kimchi. Very fast service, friendly staff and centrally located downtown.
