The food is only average. Some good...some not so good. Like: tataki roll, salad dressing, miso soup, kids French fries. The view makes up for a lot...

We went to Yama because they recently received #1 Sushi in OC, We have been once before and didn't do backflips, but it was good. Same experience last night. We went early in case it was slammed due to Tuesday Specials. $3 for 2 pc Hamachi/tuna and $2 for salmon/shrimp. Also $9-10 for a couple rolls. We arrived around 5:30... More

The sushi is fine. They have some of their own creations that make things interesting. I'd suggest going if you want to explore beyond sushi and sashimi. They have some good fish and other dishes.

Came here for lunch for the first time. I had the Sushi Roll lunch combo. There was plenty of food! It started with a bowl of miso soup and a nice green salad with tomato. The combo had 4 pieces of sushi, 4 pieces of California roll, and then a customer's choice of a number of other rolls. I ordered... More

The view if you sit outside is great, as you can dine with the view of the lake. The service was good and the sushi chefs delivered our food quickly. The tuna tatake was very good as was the salmon cerviche. The sashimi roll was the only item that was not good as the cucumber exterior overpowered the fish. Would... More

Great fellows and great foods at YAMA. For me it's the best Japanese food in Orange County. Hand-made rolls with Mexican fusion flavour are great! Service is always on-time! Try it!

This was a definite treat for dinner with my daughter! We had edamame, poki salad, salmon skin roll and a tataki roll with Sake and a Kirin light. So much food we couldn't finish it all! The poki salad had crisp greens, fresh fish with sweet onion and a sweet Hawaiian dressing. My fav roll was the salmon skin, a... More

Yama Sushi never disappoints when it comes to freshly made sushi rolls and Japanese dishes. This restaurant is located in the Vista Del Lago shopping area next to the Mission Viejo Lake. You get a really nice view of the lake if you dine in the outside patio of the restaurant. There is ample seating in the patio and booth-seating... More

With so many sushi restaurants, what makes one noticeably better than the other? Fresh fish is a given or get out. They all serve sashimi, sushi and cutesy named rolls made with various nontraditional food items. What's left? Yama Sushi has a great location overlooking Lake Mission Viejo. They have an extensive sake list and several special, seasonal fishes available.... More

The Sushi is very fresh and tasty. But if your looking for good service go somewhere else. If you sit at the bar your OK but at a table it's a different story.
