Yama Chen’s Sushi has opened at last in Vienna

Yama Chen’s Sushi House — not to be confused with nearby Sushi Yama — is now open in Vienna.

The growing chain restaurant opened its newest location in the Vienna Plaza Shopping Center on April 16. The 1,500 square-foot space at 320 Maple Ave West was formerly occupied by a Jersey Mike’s Subs.

The opening came more than a year after the business had hoped. Owner Si Chen told FFXnow’s sister site, Tysons Reporter, in February 2022 that a planned December 2021 launch was delayed by supply chain and permitting issues stemming from the pandemic.

Yama Chen originally applied for a permit to renovate the space back in September 2021, but the final inspection wasn’t completed until April 10, according to Fairfax County records.

“The Vienna location is officially open on April 16th after a year-long construction,” Qiyao Zheng, the Vienna restaurant’s manager, said by email. “The process was not easy, but we finally made it…We are looking forward to serving the customers in Vienna.”

Started as a family restaurant in 2003, Yama Chen now has 14 locations, including ones in Fairfax and Sterling. The menu at all locations is the same, offering ramen and yakisoba noodles alongside a variety of sushi dishes.

Hours for the Vienna restaurant run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

Other tenants in Vienna Plaza include Dunkin’ Donuts, Dairy Queen, Manhattan Bagel and the gym F45, which opened in August. A site plan shows that a 1,500-square-foot space next to Yama Chen is available for lease.
