THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Yuki Yama Restaurant Review

: An intimate, smart-looking restaurant dressed in conservative black and grey, this freestanding establishment serves sushi, tempura and teriyaki specialties. An endless list of specialty rolls is offered, all of which are popular. The B.S.C. roll is a deep-fried California roll topped with baked scallops, while the special roll is filled with baked baby lobster chunks and avocado wrapped in soy paper. The traditional sushi is respectable, including surf clam, live halibut and oversize scallops. A limited selection of Japanese beers and sakés is available.

A taste of the extraordinary

Yuki Yama Restaurant is a great place to go for any occasion. I've gone there for birthday parties, dates, and family outings. The experience of going there is amazing from the time you walk through the door. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxing especially the music. One thing that makes this place feel like home is that the owner treats you like family, he likes to take pictures of guests and puts them on the wall.

My main reason for always going to Yuki Yama is because of the freshness of their food and fish. I love the sushi and sashimi here, the salmon being my favorite second by the Tuna tadaki. For my friends that don't enjoy fish as much they always seem to find something on the menu that they enjoy, the teriyakis are very tasty. My favorite rolls are the Sunset and Spider roll, they are the best that I have ever had and that is no exaggeration. The rest of the rolls on the menu are just as delicious, and the best part is since I work close by I can always sneak a quick lunch there when ever I want.

When I go there with friends we usually get a bottle of sake or soju, the demon slayer (very cool name) is always a crowd pleaser; It tastes great and its enough for a good size group. So if you're looking for a great restaurant this is definitely the place.
