Felt chaotic. Service was haphazard. Would not recommend. Prices £££ in line with a high-end restaurant but the service and food do not match...

Excellent food and pleasant ambiance. At least 5 different people seem to have brought food and drinks to our table, I wonder if this is a justification for an automatic 12.5% service charge. Not the cheapest but worth the price.

Fantastic food, exciting drinks menu, excellent service - we had a truly wonderful meal. The only slight draw back was that it was quite bustling and noisy (though this does add atmosphere) and the table wasn’t as secluded / romantic as I would have liked. Only the whole 8/10

Amazing food and cocktails as always, particularly the black cod which was divine. Screens between tables slightly tainted the ambience but Yama can’t really be criticised for that in the current situation!

Food was good, service was very good although the social distancing made with sheets of transparent PVC loosely dangling from the ceiling with wide gaps on the sides looked like a bit of a joke. Anybody could easily exhale or cough on the adjacent table through the gap. Of course, not that you'd ever expect such thing deliberately done, but we know that accidents could always happen.
Food was good, like I said but portions leave you feel very "light" at the end of your meal, with prices decisively high.
Light stomach/ high prices seems to be the formula for this sleek, cute haunt in Dulwich.
I suppose that for some people could be ideal.

Left us outside waiting for our table to be ready, even though we had booked our table of 8 people weeks in advance.
Very busy inside.
Food was excellent.

The staff were so friendly, we felt really welcome. Our server recommended my main and it was delicious. And my drink was fantastic - it had purple glitter and a roasted marshmallow. The whole experience was fun, engaging, and delicious.

Nice food and friendly staff. The restaurant was quite busy during our visit on a Tues evening, though that might be due to the eat out to help out scheme. The food came quickly and the various sushi dishes we had was nice. More on the pricy side, as food only (+one beer) for the two of us came close to £60, even with the £20 government discount applied.

Amazing food, amazing cocktails, good attentive service and quick, good atmosphere. It comes up a bit pricey so we go mainly for special occasions- birthdays, anniversary or when we want to treat ourselves. .

Amazing food! Very fast service as well! Only issue is that we were sitting near the window and the road outside was very loud. Despite this though, probably the best restaurant I have eaten at for a long time!!!

Most of the food was great, but the sashimi was disappointing for a sushi restaurant as it was cut very thick which was strange. The service was ok but we didn't find the waiters/waitresses that attentive, especially considering the cost of the restaurant. The menu is now only viewable online which is completely understandable in the current climate regarding cleanliness, however the online menu wasn't very phone-friendly which made it difficult to read (could only see a few lines at a time).
