The service and food is always good and fresh at this particular restaurant. The family that owns Atari-Ya has always been very nice to me and my husband and we have never had any problems with our food. You can even order your food to go over the phone.

The food here is awesome because it is fresh and very delicious. The nice thing about eating here is that the people that work there treat you like a real person and the service is good. I can also say that this is one place that I don't get sick from. Thank you to all the employees of atari-ya.

The rolls are huge!! great quality sushi, friendly staff. Make sure you order one roll at a time or you may end up with a lot of leftovers.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is good. I was told the sushi chef had 37 years experience here and in Japan. Very friendly staff. Lots of locals coming in and out calling them by name. A nice family place.

We are locals, and as locals we tend to find restaurants that we like and stick with them! Atari-Ya Japanese Restaurant is one of those! We frequent this restaurant probably twice or three times a month - have birthdays in their back room, or out front depending on the size of our party, and go there at lunch while working.... More

The restaurant is in a small shopping center behind a larger one and we would not have found it except for the recommendations we found on Trip Advisor. It was worth looking for. The service was excellent, the prices very reasonable, food was great and the portions were very large. We were very happy with our experience here.
