Very expensive, waitress not attentive. Sushi not plated correctly. When you pay 15-20 for a roll.it shouldn't be put on a plate with a salad with a lot of liquid. The roll did not stay together. Pieces were also too big to eat in one bite the way you eat sushi. Not worth the money, last time we will go... More

Decided to give this place a try for a sushi lunch since our favorite Camarillo place was closed. Prior to today, I had only been to the Benihana style side of the restaurant (in the past has been a fun experience consistently). Oops I digress. Back to today's experience. The sushi in the combo was delicious and fresh, but I... More

We decided to try this restaurant after a few years of going to other Japanese restaurants. Everyone was friendly, and we didn't have to wait long. We came for the Teppan cooking but started with tempura shrimp and vegetables and the ahi special. All delicious. Service was great. The waiter and table chef really listened to what we wanted. Filet... More

I was looking to get sushi and I saw this place reviewed online and decided to try it out since it was next to where I needed to buy household items at Vons. I was glad that I went. The service was great. As soon as I got in the door, they greeted me and asked whether I wanted Teppanyaki... More

This is a really good sushi place, with friendly service. Their fish is very fresh and they have some interesting rolls. They also have hibachi tables with the typical cooking show. The service is quick and attentive. They are a little pricey, but I suppose that comes with the good quality. The only negative, other than the price, was that... More

By far our favorite restaurant, sushi or otherwise in Camarillo...and there are some very good ones in town (Masa Sushi, eg.). If they have fresh scallops, and the owner, Tony, will tell you what's fresh, OMG! Tony will accomodate any tastes. Be sure to have the Unagi sushi. Great sauce. This is our "go to" restaurant, no doubt...and we are... More

Yama serves the freshest sushi in Camarillo, with the chef going to LA several times a week for high-quality fish. You can taste the difference if you order sushi or sashimi; the quality of the fish is apparent. We've never been disappointed in Yama's salmon, tuna or yellowtail offerings, for example, and it's other fresh fish has been good-to-great. The... More

Yama came highly recommended so my wife and I had very high expectations. Unfortunately those expectations were not met as we left dissatisfied. The number one turnoff for me were the prices. Very high compared to most places. The one positive was the Kevin Special, it was very good, however, not as tightly rolled as I like.

And expensive. This is a sushi and teppen place. Very ordinary in every way. I was expecting more after talking to people and reading reviews. They have some creative combos, but I am more of a traditionalist when it comes sushi. Lots of cream cheese rolls. It's casual. For the price, I would expect a nicer place. $20-$30 for sushi...
