This is the kind of place to go and taste the signature dishes of the Chef. Do not be afraid you will not be disappointed. Love the food, hope to return someday.

The menu can accommodate different palates. Their sushi is fresh and they have a large variety of combinations. Their cooked food is equally as pleasing. Large saki menu or cocktails. Pleasant environment.

We decided on Zama for one of our restaurant week selections. It took the place of what was once Loie. The meal came out as it was prepared in the kitchen, so the dumplings arrived after the entrees, but no big deal. All were delicious....More
