With only a couple of staff working the floor at Sushi Oyama, one would expect that service would lag. However, in true Japanese tradition, diners are looked after from the moment they walk through the door until they leave hours later. Courteous without being ingratiating, the service is somehow able to anticipate your needs, whether you require a refill on tea or have a question about the food in front of you. Also a nice touch (and incredibly important in a restaurant that only serves a single omakase ten-course meal) is that the dishes are served at the perfect pace; diners are neither stuck sitting around twiddling their thumbs, nor does the food appear so quickly that they feel rushed and plates pile up on the table. It’s a leisurely, measured meal that attests to nearly impeccable service credentials.
