Food is good, but don't expect fine dining or ambience. People in Wellesley use Yama for reliable takeout food, and ocasionally it is nice to go there to sit at the Japanese style tables in the back, with the kids.

Yama's food is delicious! The fish is always fresh and the variety of seafood is wonderful. The service is friendly and helpful - we enjoyed every one of the dishes we ordered. Other than the sushi - the steamed shrimp shumai is very tasty.

Sushi was presented well - very tasty. You bring your own wine or beer; they uncork it and serve in glasses.
