large & fresh rolls – i came here with 5 others on saturday night. i heard that the place is usually packed, but it wasnt full when we got there at 7:30pm (maybe because it was columbus day weekend). the interior of the place is sleek, modern, with heavy, sharp cornered, dark wood tables and long dark bench seating. theres a sushi counter in the front as well.

we started out with 6 of their special yama rolls (~$13 each). i dont remember the names of any of them. the fish was all very fresh and the rolls were huuuge. it came out all on one big share plate. some of the rolls were riceless and carb-friendly, and others substituted paper thin cucumber slices for the seaweed. most of them were combinations of 2 or 3 types of fish (mostly yellowtail, salmon, & toro). we were pretty full by the time we had finished the rolls, but made room for a few appetizer dishes. this included some very chewy calamari served with a tempura dipping sauce and some edamame (with tough husks on the beans). the appetizers werent nearly as impressive as the rolls and since they were roughly the same price, i think that ill just stick entirely to the sushi next time.

City NO1 sushi chef ? – From my experience, I can definitely tell that the Sushi chef in Yma49 is one of the best in the city. I ordered "Omakase" $60 per person and had a greate greate sushi which is not typical yama style (large fish) but real Japanese "Edo-Mae" style (really smaller). Fresh fish & chefs technique made me so satisfied.

Editorial Review – Fourth edition of the popular sushi chain serves generous portions of its colorful rolls along with dumplings and other appetizers.

sleek, convenient, but no longer a bargain – Yama's sushi is definitely a cut above "good," but it used to be that they didn't cost much more than the average sushi joint. On 49th street, it does. Granted the space is very nice and the service is good, but Yama 49 is no bargain; you pay for what you get. And it's a small peeve, but they still haven't figured out how to properly make a spicy tuna roll (theirs is a regular tuna roll with a few tablespoons of goopy mayo poured over the top).

Sleekest Yama yet – Seated promptly, greeted by all sushi staff, wait staff and manager. Seaweed salad a bit dry, shumai delicious, tuna tataki excellent, edemame a bit overcooked. All sushi, as expected, fantastic. What a treat to have a Yama in midtown. Room done exquisitely. Sleek and gorgeous from front to back.

Flagship of Yama – I am a regular patron of the Yama franchise in NYC. The prices are reasonable and the portions are sizeable. However, the foremost draw is reliability of satisfaction. I generally find their sushi fresh and velvety. The 49th street location provides the authentic toothsome Yama quality, but also presents a sleek new space with much attention to layout and design, delivering a more elegant dining experience.

Great neighbourhood restaurant! – Yama49 has opened just 6 weeks ago. I took my friend to this new opened restaurant for lunch. Since there are so many Japanese restaurants in midtown, I did not have high expectations. But, I found the food was very good, the potion was huge, ambiance was very nice and service was impecable! Also, very reasonable for this quality and portion. I will definitly come back here quite often.
