Close to Sheffield’s busy city centre, at the bottom of London Road, is the hidden gem of a Japanese restaurant – Yama Sushi. The great location means that this place is ideal if you want to escape from a day in the busy city and take your time chatting over a great meal. It’s also within walking distance of both city universities, so if you want somewhere to celebrate getting your loan or chill out after lectures then pop down to Yama Sushi.
The food is served in surroundings which complement it particularly well. The tables are softly lit with candles and intimate spot lighting, so you’ll love passing the time here on a date or lingering with friends. The restaurant balances the chic Western attitude towards sushi and the traditional flair of Japanese restaurants with contemporary black wood furniture and interesting Asian decorations.
Whether you’re a dedicated sushi eater or want to try it for the first time, you won’t be disappointed by the incredible selection of food on offer here. The friendly wait staff will help if you feel a bit overwhelmed by the options, so don’t worry about asking for recommendations. We love the yummy nigri rice balls topped with fish, like the fresh tuna and salmon wrapped in a delicate layer of seaweed. The famous California rolls are also particularly tasty, with crunchy cucumber and fresh avocado blending perfectly with delicious crab pieces. If you or a member of your party fancy something a bit more warming, then Yama also serves fantastic cooked options like the tasty ramen noodle soups or the grilled chicken yakitori.
Japanese food is famed for being a healthy, yet delicious, option so you’ll leave feeling energised and relaxed. Be sure to book in advance, as this bijou Japanese restaurant is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. You won’t regret trying one of Sheffield’s best sushi places and you’ll definitely want to visit Yama Sushi again and again.
