Great authentic place to take a date. Sushi is fresh. People friendly (for most part). Has a burnt firework smell when you first walk in the door that gives you a Japanese teleportation sensation. Try it out, you will not be sorry.

Most authentic Japanese food I've had. Food comes out slow, but at least we know it's made fresh? Like most other small restaurants, service is minimal. I still go out of my way to come wait and eat at this place just because I love the food.

Hiragana on the walls by the food items- authentic Japanese foods that you normally cannot find in the area. I first went there for one of my birthdays, had takoyaki and sushi. So far the best I have ever tasted.

Last time I had went there I had curry, and my girlfriend had the shrimp tempura udon. Again, the food was amazing. Never had a problem there at all- and it's always my first choice when wanting Japanese food.

This is not one of those trendy, yuppie hangouts.Be prepaired to be a little cramped, but it is so worth it.The sushi is always fresh and tasty. If your new to sushi, sat is dollar sushi nite, you can try lots of different peices till you find your favs.This is the place sushi people go to eat sushi.

Having spent literally months in Tokyo and rural Japan, I've had my fair-share of all types of Japanese cuisine. Based upon my experience, Sushiyama is the most authentic Japanese I've had in a long, long time (in all seriousness). It's not up-scale by any means, but the food is prepared well, tastes how Japanese food should taste, and literally made me feel like I was in Japan (and not Texas).

If you're looking for good Japanese food (and sushi), with a eye on authenticity, then I'd highly recommend you make a trip to Sushiyama--it's worth the effort.

the place is known for their $1 sushi nights and wendnesday bento box special night
I usually get the seaweed salad, or daikon salad to begin the night...the sushi chef
offers GREAT appetizers when he sees customer that order drinks / sake / beers etc.
I greatly enjoy their yellowtail collard, deep fried geezer, chicken heart kabab and grilled squid
their bento box is good (quality and quantity) on wendnesdays but expect a bit of waiting
the $1 sushi is GREAT! FYI it's smaller than the regular order
staffs are usually quick / friendly...the owner is very nice as sometimes he walks around and say hi
and the sushi chef is very nice, and funny once you get to know him.

a great little place if you live close to forrest / greenville area and enjoy family style Japanese food

Sushiyama is definitely my favorite sushi spot. Besides fantastic sushi, they have an enormous menu filled with a variety of dishes. Wednesday night is half off Bento Box night, but get there early...it fills up fast! They open at 6pm.

If you're looking for a REAL sushi joint, this is it. It's located between to pubs and is VERY small. So, if you're planning to go with any kind of a normal size group of people, expect to wait a little while. Everything about this place is authentic. The wait staff speaks only enough English to get by and all the signs on the wall are in Japanese. They are very kind and will serve you with upmost enthusiasm, never missing a beat. If it's busy, I urge you to not be so "American" and rant and rave about how long it's taking. I guarantee it is worth the wait. I don't eat sushi, but my husband said that it was the best he'd ever had. And it looked amazing. Presentation was gorgeous.

Found Sushi Yama by chance while visiting Dallas. We had no idea what to expect from the nondescript exterior and off the beaten track entrance (you can hardly see the restaurant from Forest Lane). As we were getting out of our car, another couple (speaking Japanese) was also headed to the restaurant - a good sign. Entered the door to a small (cozy or hole in the wall - depending on your perspective) restaurant with about a dozen tables and a small L- shaped sushi bar. It was early Saturday evening and the place was filled with mostly Asian/Japanese customers.
Sushi may be in the restaurant's name, but I suspect the reason so many of the clients were Japanese was because of the "non-sushi" items. Omu rice, tako yaki, Real yakitori, okonomiyaki and a plethora of other items made me feel like I was back in Japan. We had a variety of items (sushi and non-sushi). All were top notch. Sat. & Tues. is $1.00 sushi ($10 min.). Our server was very pleasant. Sushi came out a bit slow (it was peak hour).
If you are looking to eat sushi in a hurry and on the cheap, this may not be your kind of place. If you are looking to spend some time "dining" and enjoying a real Japanese restaurant, Sushi Yama will be for you.
