At one time Sushi Ya had decent food and decent service. Those days are gone. It's expensive, the sushi is so-so, and the staff is confused and incompetent. No Uni ever, no quail eggs ever, no toro, just a standard menu of mediocre offerings at New York City prices. The outdoor seating area is dark (they're only open at night)... More

This was not a great sushi place at all. I guess since I have eaten at many sushi places in Toronto, this restaurant is no where close to the caliber I am used to. If you are in the mood for mediocre sushi or food, then this might be a stopping point for you. We order 7 dishes and all... More

Last week we went to Sushi-ya for an early dinner. We were not that hungry so we only took the sushi-sashimi combo for round $30,-. Afterwards we were happy that we did'nt chose more from the menu. The taste of the tuna was awfull, so I spitted it out in my napkin. The other fish was like it just came... More

Been there several times, best place to sit is at the sushi bar itself, food is nice, and service is nothing to brag about, the menu and decor is very out dated! They have had the same menu as 5 years ago no new items nothing has changed, all they did is paste the new prices just on the menu... More

The restaurant is nicely furnished and from the terrace there is a nice view of the marina. The sushi is rolled really well, but just has very little flavor. The salmon sashimi was reasonable.

if you really love sushi, do not go to this place. You would leave disappointed. My girlfriend ate fried noodles and she said there were ok. Our server was nice and friendly but I cannot say the service was very good. Eat inside. If you stay outside and too close to the road you will smell quite a bit of... More

The sushi and shrimp fried rice were both very good, we would go back. They are very busy at night, so its not for people in a hurry. This was a very good, relaxing dinner.

I don't agree with any of the reviewers,we are regulars at Nobu in NYC and we loved this place. The sushi was fresh and delicious. We had salads, sushi, salmon balls, it was all very, very good. It is small but we didn't feel cramped at all, we really enjoyed our meal. Service was great also.

Small. One "table"is in the traditional flat on the floor style. Two tables have bench style seating with no seatbacks and pillows to sit on. They other side of the table has something like a seat. Yes, service was slow but polite and patient when asked about the nuances of the sushi menu. Ordered the combo platter and was not... More
