    We loved our dinner in Yamamori North City. We had Tempura prawns which were huge, crisp, fresh and delicious with a fab ginger soy dipping sauce and they were our favourite part of the meal. Also had pork gyoza, edamame beans, tonkotsu ramen, cha han and 2 pints of Asahi beer each. Everything was delicious, food came quickly, the staff were friendly and pleasant. Bill came to €120. We love this place.

    It's been a while since we have visited. Food and service was always excellent. The service charge 12.5% is new to us, we were a table of 3. Typically service charges apply to tables of 6 or more? It's a bit cheeky to add this for a small number We mentioned to our waiter and he said it was discretionary and could remove it. We didn't like it added to our bill, and paid it (€30) because staff are so nice. But I think a tip should be at the choice of the customer.
    Yamamori North CityResponded 7 days ago
    Hello GerryF, Thanks for your feedback. We are very disappointed to hear about your experience wish you would've express your annoyances on the evening. As it is state on the bill, as well on the menu and at the entrance of the restaurant, on dinner time a discretionary service charger is add up on table of 03 or more people and it is just a suggestion to tip your server. Just to be clear 100% of all service charge goes not only to your server but it is sharing amount of all. We sincerely hope you will give us another go in the future. Kind regards, North City Team.

    Food was great but service and overall experience was disappointing. There was a focus on turning over the tables as quickly as possible (you are allocated 1hr 15, which was not made explicit at point of booking) and there seemed to be little interest in our comfort or enjoyment of the meal.
    Yamamori North CityResponded on 8 January 2024
    Hi, Thank you for taking your time to leave us feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your food however we are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy our service. Regarding the booking duration, Table for 2 is set for 1hr and a half which would have been noted at the time of booking if booked online. The table beside you presumably had not booked in advance and were told when they walked in. Unfortunately, during the holiday season and particularly on the Christmas weekend, we are extremely busy. We apologize if you felt rushed and we will take your feedback on board. We will take your remarks into consideration and would hope that ,in the future, if you decide to pass this way again you might give us the chance to improve upon your perception of Yamamori. Regards, Yamamori North City Team

    We were staying at Zanzibar Locke next door and decided to try this place for convenience’s sake. It turned out to be the best sushi I have had in a long time! We ordered the spider rolls, salmon rolls, and the ebi dragon. Presentation was simple, yet so flavourful! The ambiance felt relaxed, romantic, casual. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We were pleasantly surprised, and very happy with our on-the-whim dinner choice. If we had more time here, we would have come back to try other menu items. Highly recommend if you want to have some great sushi in Dublin City 1!

Each dish was consumed with gusto, washed down with lovely Asahi beers. The restaurant is comfortable, has a nice atmosphere and looks great. Service is seamless and without delay.

    Amazing as always ! I visit Yamamori every Christmas as it is our little family tradition. My kids always have a lovely memorable experience and we try sit in the same area every time we go back . Slight increase on price but definitely worth it as I don’t mind paying for good food and lovely welcoming atmosphere . Would highly recommend especially this time of year after a day of Christmas shopping .
