This is a small casual neighborhood restaurant that serves delicious sushi and friendly service. We visit here often and can always count on a good meal. Highly recommend any of the sushi and sashimi plates for a nice assortment of fresh sushi. I like the eel handroll and Ota Ya salad as well. They do not have a liquor license and you must bring your own bottle of wine but the wine and spirits store in Newtown is a only a minute or two away and has a great selection of wine.

This has been our trusted and reliable turn-to sushi place for years. It's a small restaurant, which may be a bit hard to find if you are coming for the first time, but don't shy away. 

The sushi is always good, and they have THE best spicy tuna (salmon, scallop) rolls, especially if you ask for the extra spicy!  The rolls are perfectly sized and cut into 6 pieces, but the ultimate is they put so much extra spicy tuna (or whatever you ordered) ON TOP of the finished rolls: so, unlike in most other restaurants, you don't feel like you are cheated out of the most delicious ingredient!  Cindy and Marina will give you recommendations for whatever off-the-menu items you may be interested in. They are always ready to try something new for you, and do their best to meet customers' (read: my family's) demands. I have not had sushi, Nigiri or sashimi that I did not like here. 

Their menu stretches far beyond sushi / sashimi, and includes other Asian fusion options. They are BYOB, and will serve your libation exactly the way you like.  Ota Ya will host a party for you - again, with numerous and fabulous dish suggestions, and will cater off site.  Also try their Lambertville location, which is a bit more "hip". 

My only reason for holding back a star is that sometimes the kitchen is a bit too slow, especially if there is a party they are hosting. Otherwise, I'll be coming here for as long as I'll live in this area.

Never had a bad meal here. This is our go to place for sushi. The fact that it's a BYOB seals the deal. We do take out here about once a week too!
