Delicious Food!

The place is always packed so you might feel a little cramped, but who can blame people for wanting great food?! We had several types of sushi, sashimi and tempura; all delicious. Service is excellent too, just wish they had a little more room......

If I were on death row and had to order my last meal, If I wanted Sushi-it would come from here. The cuts are big, Fresh and Delicious! The service is awesome. The sushi Chefs are top notch :-) Yellowtail is my favorite, if you're looking for a great roll to try, the best is the Spicy tuna tempura roll.... More

Great place for lunch. However due to limited seat capacity, either arrive early or late by being in the second seating. The place is well managed and the food always as good as they were for years. Their lunch specials of the day really give very good value. There are also other authentic Japanese dishes that are available in their... More

Small, pleasant place in strip mall. Not the location you'd expect for INCREDIBLY GOOD sushi! Great service, fresh and wonderfully prepared sushi. Yoshi and his wife rightly take great pride in the restaurant. You can try many places and pay a whole more and not find better sushi than at Kayala. My wife and I are regulars and fans!

First of all - the food here is excellent, and is a great value for the money. I eat out often - all over Southern California, and went to Kyala today for a business lunch. My colleague and I arrived at 11:30 a.m. - right when they opened. The hostess seated the two of us at a table for four... More

I have to agree with other reviewers that the quality of the fish served is always good, and if you place yourself in the hands of owner/chef Yoshi and let him serve you his choice, you can expect to have a marvellous evening of sushi discovery! We started going to Kyala the first month they opened, and used to visit... More

I had many experiences with Kyala, and it is my favorite Japanese place in the area. I am mostly into sashimi, but I have tried other dishes too. Fish is always fresh and of a good quality. My latest lunch at Kyala was a special with grilled salmon salad, sashimi, miso soup and a katsudon - a lot of good... More

This is my "go to" local sushi bar. If you want very good, traditional sushi, with a few great twists, try Yoshi am Machiko's place. Best sushi in Diamond Bar. Not your "all you can eat kind of place". Also not the cheapest by a long shot but with sushi at Kyala, as with most things, you get what you... More
