Sushi Ya is a pretty reliable, standard sushi restaurant. The menu includes hibachi and teriyaki entrees as well. If you want a menu full of the Japanese basics and a chance to sit by the Beni Hanna style steam tables then this is it. We went on a weekend and it wasn't crowded. I bet it's a good spot mid...

We were here 2 years ago when we were in town and it took us two years to find it again. Super place !!! Locals frequent. Huge menu plus hibachi grill. Full bar, huge saki menu. Great sushi roll combinations most named for their frequent guests.

pleasant environment, friendly waitress, good service but disappointment in the special sushi rolls as my husband and I both found them to be too soft and mushy. They also were skimpy on the fish in the rolls although fish was very fresh.

Great food -- we go as often as we can. Kelly and Eric make you feel like family. All the rolls are great. Love the eggplant and garlic broccoli.

If you like Japanese food this will make you happy. Try it and you will like it. Nice area also. Shrimp Tempura Sushi is good

My cousins and I go for early dinner on a semi regular schedule and this is one of our favorites. So far everything I have tried is delicious and the prices are reasonable.

I am a super picky eater and I don't like to try new foods so I wasn't sure I was going to like this restaurant. I was very surprised, though, and am so glad I ate here. I ordered the Tonkatsu and it was delicious! I also tried some of the other food from my friends' plates (which is something... More

Ordering the hibachi always works for me because I am not a sushi eater. The vegetables and the meat are always fresh and cooked flavorful. Chances are, I'd eat here again.

Went on Sunday evening with family. 5 in total and not everyone eats sushi. Very fresh. Hot dishes were plentiful. Deserts were creative. Had better but would definitely recommend.
