About Yama Gardens

Boasting an open kitchen in a chic space in the heart of Darlinghurst, Yama Gardens is one of the coolest Japanese restaurants you’ll find. With lively bar-style seating on the ground floor and an intimate upstairs area upstairs with views of the terraced streets, Yama is a haven for lovers of delicious, fresh and authentic Japanese cuisine. Located on the corner of Liverpool and Victoria Street, everything here is presented with finite precision and creative flair, making the experience one you’re unlikely to forget. As you would expect for any Sydney restaurant of this calibre, reservations ahead of time are essential to avoid disappointment.

Great food, had a table on the balcony upstairs perfect for people watching. Only bad part was the poor waitress was by herself so was very very busy
