Yama Sushi Emporium 

Yama Sushi Emporium is Franschhoek’s premier sushi restaurant situated on the main road of Franschhoek.

The restaurant takes on a light, minimalistic approach that offers spacious seating both inside and outside in the courtyard. 

The team, guided by Ryan Shell, aims to create a calm space where locals can fully relax and enjoy themselves with anything from a quick lunch to a full dinner spread. The eatery offers a high-quality sushi menu accompanied by an Asian-themed à la carte menu using fresh seasonal ingredients. Guests are sure to feel at ease as they are gracefully guided and taken care of by our passionate team throughout their visit. 

Our wine list is focused on local wineries from in and around the valley as well as a selection of cocktails and sakes, including our own house brand beer-styled sakes.

The dining experience is completed with instrumental music that evokes a sense of calmness in our guests that enables them to unwind and relax.
