If you are looking for food on the slightly sweet side, this is definitely the place. All the food we had (katsu & yaki don, and I can't remember what my friends had) they were all sweet tasting. The tempura cheesecake is delicious, and the mochi is good. The only issue I had with the mochi was it was covered... More

We went in a group of 10 and had a spectacular dinner with great showmanship by our chef. Filet and scallops were top notch. Highly recommend the hibachi grill.

I am so happy my friend brought me to Fujiyama, this is by far the best sushi I have ever eaten. The service was wonderful, I loved the atmosphere (I really don't understand the other reviews- it does feel like you're in a cave and it is wonderful) and the sushi was perfect. The best way I can describe it... More

My sushi addiction started many, many years ago, taking me all over the city in the quest for the perfect combination of not only sushi, but starters, salads, soups, and desserts. I've had many favourite sushi restaurants over the years, changing almost every time someone pointed me in the direction of the new 'hot sushi spot', until I happened across... More

We ate dinner here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge (we asked for Japanese food). The premises are kind of iffy - this restaurant has a small store front. The tables are in the basement (lots of stairs), and then they seat you in a small room. Not for people who suffer from claustrophobia. Some of the food was... More

I have eaten here before and it is a pretty decent spot. Tonight after finishing dinner there was a huge mouse running around the restaurant. It wasn't scared and acted as if it owned the place. I don't think I can come back and there could be an issue with sanitation/cleanliness.....When I told the staff what I saw, they simply... More

I was craving some sushi and Fujiyama was right there, I had too. I was not a fan of the atmosphere at all, but I like to let the food do the talking. I asked a few questions and the waitress looked at me funny. No I am not a sushi aficionado, I know a bit and have ate at... More

I have been to this restaurant before a few times. It is an odd place, it used to be something else and is now converted into a sushi restaurant. You feel very much like you are in a cave when you are inside. There are a bunch of nooks and crannies everywhere with dark lighting. A friend brought here for... More

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon at about 2:30 and the place was empty except for us. Our service was understandably fast. It seemed that almost all of the nearby restaurants were closed, but these guys were open; points for that! We got some brown rice tea to start and it was surprisingly good; we had never had it before.... More

Came here once with a cousin for lunch. The meals were good; ordered a rainbow roll, some other things I forget and vegetable udon noodles. The place itself was clean and in a unique little place, the sushi bar was great to look at. Would likely return, visited June 2012 .
