    I love Yamabuki, have been there a few times. The menu is very traditionally Japanese, and a bit pricey but well worth it. Everything we've had on the menu has been terrific, depends what you like. The Black Cod (Gindara Yu-An Yaki ) is wonderful, but my favorite is the Agedashi Tofu. The set menu (Yamabuki Combo) is the best deal (3 courses) and don't forget to get a discount with either the AP or Disney Visa.

    Here's a link to the menu: http://allears.net/dlr/din/menu/men_yamd.htm

          Not to be a downer, but I went to Yamabuki once, and won't go again. I believe a California Roll is about $10. Nearly anywhere else in California, you can find a California roll for $5 or less. The other rolls are similarly overpriced, and quite often don't have all of the ingredients that most other sushi bars include, which cuts back on flavor, but you get charged a higher price.

          I wasn't impressed... I can find better sushi at a better price elsewhere.

          But best of luck to you -- maybe it'll be the right thing for you


          PS- here are menus (EDIT: I see wbarley already posted a menu link):

            thankfully we're not really going for sushi (i can get all you can eat sushi here for 13.95). but mostly for the rest of the menu and for the company

            less than 24hrs to go!

                We've never had the sushi at Yamabuki, as it does seem very overpriced. It was the other dishes that we were enticed by and enjoyed, dishes that are out of the ordinary. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant.

                Because of the expense of eating out at the resort, I always like to look at the menus and get reviews before I go to places like this too - this site is one of the great resources for that.

                  well we had a marvelous dinner at Yamabuki's. I agree, the sushi is very pricey (i'm used to 15.95 all you can eat sushi here in Reno at one of the best sushi bars in town) but it was a very good quality, and sometimes you have to pay for that.

                  I had the Yamabuki combo dinner with the chicken, the soybeans were perfectly warm and not too salty. The chicken was tender and flavourful. oh! and the miso soup was perhaps the best i've ever had anywhere.

                  Dustin had the lobster thermidor, and it was completely stellar! I'd never tasted it before and after a bite of his dinner was actually a little jealous it wasn't mine, lol.

                  all in all, an excellent dinner with amazing friends. can't ask for much more than that

                      Re: Yamabuki's Questions

                      Thank god I read this before taking my Disneyland/Haunt Trip, we were seriously debating on doing Yamabuki since we were staying very close to it at the Best Western Stovalls but since we would have been going for the sushi, we kinda decided and agreed that the overpriced sushi was not our thing so we sadly skipped it.

                      Though 13.95 for all you can eat sushi elly... I wish we had something like that here in Phoenix... our all you can eat place is like 22.95 and our happy hours are pretty up there in price too... I recall spending over 33.00 on Happy Hour sushi and appetizers at this sushi place on the ASU campus
                      Add me... I dont bite LOL!

                        Re: Yamabuki's Questions

                        First a caveat, my family is super particular about Japanese food...

                        We have been to Japan numerous times.

                        Good:
                        * Slightly more varied selection of items than your typical Japanese restaurant
                        e.g. daikon salad
                        * Decent taste on most items (very good gyu hire yaki)
                        * Sushi is competently & authentically made e.g. maki-mono was centered, they used chiso as a garnish, daikon "noodles"
                        * Miso shiru had wakame (seaweed)
                        * Decent service & decor.

                        Not so good:
                        * A lot of teriyaki-tempura items under fancier Japanese names
                        * Could/should have more authentic items (nabe dishes, chawan mushi, etc)
                        * A bit more expensive than your run-of-the-mill place
                        * I've had fresher fish, but rarely in the US.

                        Would I go back? Yes, only if I'm in DLR w/o a car and feel like Japanese food.

                          I hate to be a downer as well, but when I went about 4 months ago our Server was very polite, and helped us...But when the server was gone and we wanted a refill or had a question there was nobody to be found, when we asked the other servers a question they just ignored us, and one even told us that we should "ask your server, i'll find him for you"...It also didn't help that we had a family of screaming children, and parents just as bed [they we're playing Nintendo DS's with the sound all the way up] while their children screamed...The food was good, the rolls we're over priced, the experience wasn't so great.

                            Anyone have any recommendations for other Japanese restaurants in the Anaheim area???

                            I think the combo dinner (or whatever it's called) at Yamabuki is a fairly good bet - basic, but a good meal. For sushi, however, my experience is that some of the "hole-in-the-wall" places are the best way to go. I occasionally go to a little place in Westwood that's comfortable, reasonably priced, and fun. Would definitely like to find someplace like that closer to Disneyland.
