The Bar & Restaurant Edit: I love all sorts of different cuisine but I’m ashamed to say I have only eaten Japanese once, and that was in Rome in 1980. So I am delighted that Amanda Walker, our dynamic manager of the East Finchley office, has pointed me in the right direction this week with her choice, Yama Yama Japanese Restaurant on East Finchley High Road.
She loves the sushi, seaweed salad and the pickled ginger wasabi dish (be careful of wasabi if you don’t know it – it’s like a bright green horseradish on steroids).
She says they do amazing little grilled skewers too, cooked right in front of your eyes. I’m definitely going to try this one.
This is what they say about themselves:
Yama Yama is your local traditional Japanese restaurant.Our restaurant offers you a wide assortment of delicious, fresh food that is made to order. Our variety of dishes such as robata (Japanese grilled dishes), sushi, sashimi and noodles capture the traditional essence of the Japanese cuisine. Come and dine in our relaxed environment and share dishes with your friends and family.
