I love this restaurant! Great service, delicious sushi, and amazing view of the lake. The sushi dishes I tried ( Yellowtail Carpaccio, Crispy Rice Guacamole, and Shrimp Crunch Roll) all tasted very good and fresh, and they were all very reasonably priced. I did not have to wait long for my food and I got to meet the owner, who is very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any family, group of friends, or even individuals looking for a delicious, nice sushi restaurant.
Just getting back from my first experiance dining at Yama Sushi, I found out what a great location and yummy food I have around my house that I did not know existed before. I was looking to have lunch on a Sunday with a view and found this wonderful resturant by the lake. I did not know that they had heaters to warm you outside and even clear visers that let you view the lake as you ate. My best gratitue was for the staff who worked there, and even stoped to chat with you and make you feel at home. Thank you guys, I will be back!!!!
Disappointed. Such a nice location, the staff was very friendly and fast. The sushi was not good. The fish in my sushi assortment actually looked old and I wouldn't eat it. I ate the cooked rolls I got (hopefully I'll live lol) and they were just ok- kinda bland. I was so hoping this would be yummier. I loved sitting on the patio overlooking the lake. They need to step up their quality if they are going to get any repeat customers. Maybe everyone else already knows to avoid the place because I was there at noon and was the only person...
Yama has the best sushi in Orange County. I ate there last night, yummy!! Sometimes there can be long lines but most people don't realize that they do accept reservations. That's my tip - you can make reservations. We started with Omakase , sushi chef Steve (that's his English name, he's Japanese but I can't pronounce his Japanese name) was excellent as always.
He started us off with snapper and ponzu sauce and slivers of onions dotted with salmon eggs. Then came the sashimi platter - yellowtail, salmon, tuna and oysters with ponsu sauce and green onions delicious!! The tuna was blue fin Wow. We had california roll, ebi, a scallop roll and salmon with avocado and cream cheese fried and circled with sweet mayonnaise dressing with sesame seeds, excellent.
We had a great dinner! Thank you to Don, he is the very personable owner of this fine establishment.
I was only interested in orthodox Japanese Sushi till I came to Yama Sushi on the Lake. Their California rolls are just done very well, and I think their prices are about the best I can find in South Orange County. I've only been here about a year, since relocating back from Japan 16 years ago, and what I'm recommending is that you set aside your ideas about how boring sushi may be if you are unfortunate enough to have eaten sushi from places like Costco, etc. If quality, flavor and price are your top criteria for sushi, try YSL, and thank me later.
Freshest Fish and Best Sake at Yama on the Lake in Mission Viejo. Their address is 27782 Vista Del Lago, Orange County Ca, 92692.
Telephone number 949-7169262 open 7 day for lunch and dinner.
Also Yama Sushi has a romantic setting atop of Lake Mission Viejo in Southern Orange County. Prices are Very Reasonable and Quality is top notch. I really enjoy the Sake Tasting Room with sushi and sashimi appetizers on the outdoor heated patio, yummy!
Two months ago I went to Yama Sushi on the Lake for the first time with my brother and girlfriend and we had a GREAT experience. So, we came back a few more times. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants now.
We've tried many different varieties of foods on the menu but I personally recommend trying any of the YAMA CREATIONS especially the yellowtail carpaccio. The yellowtail carpaccio has delicious seasoning and you can decide whether to wrap the yellowtail with white onion and jalapenos. If you really like spicy food there is dots of hot sauce on the side of the plate. Whenever I go with friends and family we always order one YAMA CREATION, one cooked roll and one sushi roll. Ones that stood out were the samurai roll and mission viejo roll.
The service is great. The waitresses were very nice and the owner is a kid man. We got the pleasure of talking to him because my parents wanted to try the seven sake shots. I had a sip of some. There is this milky looking one (not clear) which i thought was pretty good. The owner seems to be working very hard. He plans several events a month. Sushi Making Class (one day) for kids and Sake Course Dinners. and also he is constantly trying to improve his menu. He told us that if you order something unique on his menu, the next time we come it might look and taste different. Lastly, the restaurant is on the lake!!! if you go for lunch there is a beautiful view of the lake and the patio is set up very hip and relaxing.
I definitely recommend people coming and trying. It is one of the few sushi places that i loved. and at the very least you get to have a nice view and good service if for some reason you do not like the food. I recommend going with a medium sized group so you can try more stuff on the menu. I don't know why some people made bad comments. I think it is because they only came for the recession tuesday $1 sushi and that does not really show the quality of the restaurant. Finally the quality of food and service and location matches the price. Not too pricey for a sushi restaurant but it is a sushi restaurant.
There is a $1.00 sushi on Tuesdays a great idea but the service is VERY slow! I have eaten here many time and the food is good but the service is lacking. We ate there last Tuesday and it took over 2 1/2 hours to get food. So either be prepared for a long, slow dinner or order everything you want when the waitress gets there but be prepared to wait for it all to come.
This is the best sushi or sushimi and collection of fine Sake you can find... The chefs are great....The owner is the best, always taking care that everyone has a great time. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who loves sushi!
