Great atmosphere despite the tough times and social restrictions. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and safe. Sushi and cocktails were first class. Great evening for my husbands birthday treat.

The food was delicious as always and the service was fantastic. My only concerns were covid related. I felt that there were too many people in the restaurant and they had at least 5 tables arrive for an 8.30 slot which meant we were all queuing outside.

We booked a table at 8.45 but were made to wait outside for 25 minutes which was disappointing so the experience with reception wasn't great. I had to remind them and that meant we had under hour to have dinner which was of course rushed. Food was great and service very friendly so will be coming back.

Fabulous food every time. Only gripe is that table is for 1.5 hours - not really enough! 2 hours would be great.

We love Yama Momo, we've dined there previously with friends and loved it, but when we visited last time (as a couple) the experience wasn't quite as expected. We had to wait 15 minutes for our table (past the time we booked) and the host suggested that we wait outside. Ordinarily this wouldn't be a problem, but our table was at 20:30 and the restaurant closed at 22:00 so we felt rushed. When our order came, one of the dishes was wrong and another was forgotten. It just wasn't quite as slick as we'd remembered which was a shame.

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.
