Don't know much about sushi, but would like to learn/try more. We've been to Yama in Wellesley, just cuz it's local and accessible. How does Yama rank among the sushi-informed? What are other/better sushi places in the western suburbs?
I was very disappointed with Yama. Overpriced, small portions, not as fresh as it should have been. I go to Hiro Sushi, down the road on Rt. 135 just as you enter Natick from Wellesley. It is a little pricey, but very good.
Glad you enjoyed it! I've been meaning to get to that place in Chestnut Hill, but with Hiro so good and so convenient, it's hard to justify the trip. By the way, Wasabi, on rt 9 in Framingham is nearly as good, but much less comfortable.
