“More than just typical sushi”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

There are a lot of menu selections that are sea food, but not raw.
Good service. Sat on the outer porch. The staff lit the propane heaters when we mentioned it was getting cool.

“Best Sushi in Orange County”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Yama Sushi is by far the best sushi in Orange County. The location is amazing but what makes this place so special is the quality of the food and the people. We go there at least twice a month and have been doing so for years. If you go, sit at the sushi bar and interact with the amazing chefs there. Or, if you want, spend some time on the deck and enjoy the view of Lake Mission Viejo. You will not find a better sushi value anywhere! If you like really quality sushi at a reasonable price with great service, this is your place!

“Great local Sushi restaurant”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Its always nice when all you have to do is drive one mile to have great sushi. Situated right on the Lake, on a nice day you have to sit outdoors. Their special Yama sushi creations are definitely worth trying and like most sushi restaurants, the service is excellent.

“4 Sushi Chefs”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

My husband and I tried out Yama Sushi on Lake Mission Viejo. Nice location on thye lake provides a great view. Very fresh looking fish laid out nicely behind glass at the sushi bar which is a must. The four Japanese sushi chefs did not disappoint. Lots of guests who clearly eat here regularly. Staff friendly and service good. The menu has all the typical rolls and many creative entrees and small plates. Good wine selection for a sushi place.

Although it does have a nice view the atmosphere isn't that romantic or intimate. Felt a little like a fast food place.

“Overated and higher priced than website”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

Although the location is nice and the staff friendly, it was disappointing to see the rates higher than the website and the menus at the door. It was $3.00 more per bento lunch and the chicken was over cooked. To hear that it is the best sushi in Orange County must indicate that reviewers have not been to say Angotei in Costa Mesa.
