Some of you might now that I am working in Jaya One, and if you do come by, can always give me a call then we can have lunch together. One of the latest outlet in Jaya One that offer a new twist of taste is Yama & J. Chef Yama that had been train at U.S in a few Japanese restaurant over past 30 years and now with its new concept in New York known as Japanese Fusion Sushi, that he had gain his fame there and now flying back to Malaysia to open this outlet to share the latest trend to our Malaysian.
[update: no longer in operation]

I did ask him before, or not only me, why come back to Malaysia since you are doing so well in overseas. He answered, because he is a Malaysians and still his home ground. He is proud to bring back this concept. Chef Yama specialties are sauces. He always mention would love the diners to enjoy same ingredient but different taste.
Open its door for less than a month, and he had started to gain many regular customer. With his unique sauce combination that none of us had try before that make all customer a wow on his creation. Yama & J offers Buffet for all of us at very affordable price.
You will be rather suprise of what Chef Yama had gain its fame in New York and are now on the wall for you to read.
Dining experience also would be more different compare to any other traditional Japanese Outlet.
There are only limited space dining indoor and highly advisable to book your reservation first before you go over especially during lunch.
sitting outdoor during lunch will definitely not a pleasant experience. At night would be better.
All buffet start from this boat and please be prepare you are about to get spam with lots of pictures.
What can you expect in the outlet as there are 2 sessions available for you diners.
Fresh sashimi ..
chef special sauce to go along
Cold Platter and Salmon Fish head (depends on availability)
The Kimchi is pretty good ..
Udon with the soup at the side.
Another chef special sauce that its a must have and available at the end of the ship.
for last dessert, ice cream
Buffet range does not end there, as you are entering into chef specialties, that with their menu with buffet, we can order anything in the menu with OK sign at the side. I have tried nearly all of it as I have dine here many times.
Red Dragon Roll: Spicy tuna and cucumber roll, topped with Big-Eye Tuna & Chef’s signature spicy ponzu garlic sauce
Happy Sumo Roll: Shrimp tempura, cream cheese & snow crab, deep-fried potato strip topped with Chef’s signature yuzu, homemade eel sauce & strawberry sauce, served in a martini glass
Baked Salmon Roll: Snowcrab, cream cheese & asparagus on top with baked salmon, served with Chef’s signature sauce
Art of Maki: Salmon, avocado, crabmeat wrapped with tuna & served with Chef’s signature yuzu sauce
Mango Waikiki Roll: Fresh salmon, avocado topped with mango & red tobikko & Chef’s signature mango sauce
Volcano Roll: Crabmeat mix, avocado & cucumber, topped with spicy tuna, spicy salmon mango with Chef’s signature sauce
With some of them in the pictures are Eunice, Me, Coco & Yvonne Sam .. .
Food in here is great and it will give you another dimension of what to taste in sushi. The only thing is you might love it or don so like it as in the chef special menu, its much drench with sauce, there is where the sushi/sashimi boat come in handy, to tone down the taste. My preference for those are:
Waikiki Roll, Volcano Roll, Art of Maki to kick start off with . .
If you are more adventure with your sushi, then I would highly recommend this place to try out.
