Yamagoya is known for its sushi and I now understand why! Our dishes were amazing and the fish used seemed to be of quality. Be ready for a wait to get in during peak seasons. We waited for 30 minutes for two people at 8:30...More

Food was very good but seating a little difficult to get into. Curry roll and prawn tempura excellent. Wait wasn't too bad.

They don't take reservations. Either get there for opening at 5:00 or second seating which runs around 6:30 which is what we usually do
