Yamafuji Sushi Restaurant Review

: A small sushi bar, rosewood chairs, warm beige tones and soft lighting define the quiet and simple setting. The menu of traditional Japanese fare and sushi features hot and cold appetizers, noodle soups and barbecue standards including salmon, beef, chicken and vegetable teriyaki that will neither surprise nor disappoint. Hiyayako, cold bean curd with ginger sauce, and ikura oroshi, salmon roe in grated radish, are healthy and refreshing not to mention some of the more interesting choices among the starters. It’s with the specialty rolls, however, that the creativity shines. Consider the 2005 roll with blackened tuna, asparagus, white tuna, eel sauce, spicy sauce and bonito flake and, given the colors, the aptly named Christmas roll with spicy tuna, avocado and wasabi mayo. Unagi lovers will delight in the eel cake with a whole piece of eel (as opposed to the usual sliver), spicy tuna, crunch, avocado, asparagus and sushi rice. Several wines by the glass and bottled saké are available.
