Lovely restaurant with good service and well loved within the community as it is highly recommended by locals. I may not have chosen the best meal - beef teriyaki - veggies overcooked and beef quite chewy. People nearby were happy with their rolls.

We visited here on a Thursday evening and the place was busy. This is a small restaurant that is usually very busy. We were seated quickly at the sushi bar.mi am not a sushi eater but my husband said the sushi was excellent.

On weekends get there early or be willing to wait. Sushi is amazing, as is, the atmosphere and servers. Lots of varieties to choose from. If you like sushi you have to stop in and try it next time in Fernie

After living in Japan for a year I know my sushi! Yamagoya is soooo good! Everything is to love! And the hostess Tanis is just great! Perfectly attentive :)

We arrived after 7 pm on a Thursday, and the restaurant was moderately busy. We were seated right away, but at the bar, looking into the kitchen. The tempura was lightly coated and crispy. All of the rolls and nigiri were fresh and tasty.

Be prepared to wait, a very popular restaurant. The food is worth the wait. A surprise for small town sushi!

This place is always busy. Always. So expect at least 15+ min to be seated (We waited about 45 which was fine but they took about 10 min just to acknowledge our existence at the door, and then another 10 after that to get us...More

They don't take reservations. Either get there for opening at 5:00 or second seating which runs around 6:30 which is what we usually do
