I think the main attraction is the location and view of the lake. The staff are very friendly and the sushi bar is has a real local neighborhood feel to it. The menu is pretty standard with a few specials that we enjoy. Very pleasant experience.

We stopped in here on a holiday eve as my husband loves sushi. We were seated immediately and the food was great. They have a good variety to choose from. The atmosphere is just okay. There is a long bar with seats and a few small tables & chairs. The location although on Lake Mission Viejo doesn't take advantage of... More

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!
