Beside panoramic vistas of Mission Viejo Lake, Yama Sushi & Grill's four experienced sushi chefs slice fresh fish into artfully arranged sushi served alongside other Japanese specialties. The Samurai roll drapes crunchy shrimp in a mantle of spicy tuna and eel sauce, and the tataki roll wraps spicy tuna in cilantro-seasoned tuna to create a matryoshka doll fit for a baby fisherman. Tables of fish feasters can substitute other rolls of the same price, or pay the difference for a full mélange of shareable tastes. Next, a sashimi sampler of tuna, salmon, and yellowtail melts upon awaiting tongues in tribute to departed snowmen. Quaffs of cold, smooth sake complement the bouquet of maritime flavors. Yama Sushi & Grill's covered patio holds clusters of wicker chaises from which dining friends and families look out on the lake and its fringe of greenery.
