Expert review of Yamamori

Grab your friends, book a booth and savour sake at Dublin’s most fun Japanese restaurant.

Dublin is lacking in quality Japanese restaurants so I rely on Yamamori for my sushi fix and I’m never disappointed. A buzzing atmosphere, especially at weekends, is its star quality, and this Japanese jewel is best enjoyed with a group of friends who are willing to share sake and sample platters. Equally, if you're dining alone, slide onto one of the benches to blend into the evening crowd or chat away to your neighbours if they're friendly! 

Food and drink: 

There is great sushi but if you're allergic to anything raw, or you’re a red meat lover, trust me, you’ll find something on this extensive menu – delicious sashimi, ramen (noodle dishes are super generous), teriyaki and....sake, superb!

Recommended dishes: 

A sushi platter, yum, with a salad, fried tofu and sashimi to follow. Meat eaters, choose a teriyaki or ramen dish. 

Ambience: 

It's electric. Extra long tables and benches mean the clientele are mixed up, creating a bubbly, convivial mood. It's also a really friendly place for lone diners. This is a top spot to lift the mood before a night out with friends.

Service: 

The essence of Japanese food is speed and the service here is fast and efficient to suit. Don’t expect to be spoiled by your servers, they don’t have time, but you’ll be having too much fun to notice.

Location: 

It has a city centre location on South Great George’s Street.

Price advice: 

Share and share alike for the best value. Platters are the way to go for sushi because if you order individual pieces, believe me, you’ll get a shock when the bill arrives, even if the sake has kicked in! The noodle dishes are great value as the portions are massive.

Tables to book: 

It has to be a booth for groups, every time. If you're alone, you can slip in anywhere. Couples, book a window table for privacy.
