The restaurant week options are served in just the right portions. Great value for the prix-fixe menu. Service is prompt but not rushed.

I was very surprised by this place. It’s still in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of midtown, but kind of tucked away. The food was excellent. Service was a little slow but it was packed and restaurants are so short staffed right now. Would recommend.

The venue’s setup was very spacious from the other tables. The food was excellent too. I would want a more attentive service though so that I could’ve ordered more food but all in all the experience was excellent.

Yama Ramen & Sushi was a very good dining experience. We made a reservation and our table was ready for us 10 minutes early. They had sushi and beer on happy hour until 8pm, so we took advantage of that and finished off with Ramen, which was very good.

My food came before my friend's and we waited another 20 minutes before hers arrived, and I was waiting to eat with her so my food was cold. No one came by to say that Ramen would take longer, I had to complain to hear that they were busy and hence why the wait. Then my food should not have been ordered and taken out.

Water could've used some ice and could've been atleast cold. Ramen was delicious! Gyoza was okay. I didn't hate it but could've been better. I'd highly recommend going her for the ramen atleast.

We had Thanksgiving dinner here while on a school/family trip to NYC. We were looking for a non-traditional Thanksgiving experience and we were not disappointed at Yama Ramen. Excellent service, extensive and authentic menu items and lovely ambiance. Will dine here again in future trips!!

My family and I dined here during our most recent trip to NYC, and we were not disappointed. My husband and I both enjoyed the Shoyu Ramen and our daughter had plain ramen in broth which she also liked. We also had a serving of the Homemade Pork Gyoza (dumplings). They weren’t my favorite, but my husband enjoyed them. My daughter and I also shared an order of Tempura Shrimp Roll which we both thoroughly enjoyed! Great service here too! We had an overall great meal and would recommend it to others!
