Our three year old loved the hibachi chicken! My husband I ordered seven different rolls and we were pleased with the majority of them. The miso soup was pretty bland, but their ginger dressing for the house salad was good. This is the third sushi place we have tried since moving to IL. This is the best of the three,... More

We were looking forward to our visit because of the great value for good sushi. The quality of the sushi did not disappoint but the appearance of the restaurant and the service. I'm not sure if they are going through a remodel, but there were wires hanging out of the walls and no decorations. We had four pieces of sushi... More

I was going to give this restaurant a three as the fish is fresh. However, as I was finishing my meal at the sushi bar, a handyman began to apply putty to the walls directly behind the sushi bar and directly above the sushi preparation area. In fact, a sushi prep chef had to head to reach underneath him to... More

This place has really good sushi for a great price! My favorite is the Godzilla rolls. Everything is so fresh and so delicious. One of my favorites!

'm so sorry, but you people who think this is great sushi have GOT to be kidding! Good sushi is a balance between the texture of the perfectly cooked and seasoned rice, and the piece of fish (or whatever else) that's on top of or inside of it. The main problem here is that the rice was TERRIBLE....no flavor and... More

This is my go to place to take friends for sushi, I love that it's one price all-you-can-eat, this way there's no surprises, getting a huge bill at the end. I can bring friends or family there, people that have never eaten sushi and want to try it. Their sushi is very good, yes I have had better, but for... More

I met a friend for lunch here the other day and was truly surprised at this sushi restaurant that was hidden away in a strip mall in Joliet. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but inside, you can tell that it recently had been remodeled and everything looked great! It was very spacious and the booths would be... More

The most unfriendly, rude, and humiliating person at the restaurant turned out to be the female manager/owner. She questioned my sons age and said he eats a lot. Then she processed to ask his weight and waited for a response. I asked why she would need that information. She stated she would not offer my son the childrens price as... More

Our son raved about Sushi Ya and, though not big sushi fans, we took our family there for dinner. What a find! The food is amazingly fresh, superbly prepared, and beautifully presented. It doesn't matter who your server is. Nancy, the owner, and her staff of servers will all stop by the table to see if you need anything. I... More

I had the sashimi platter. 9 pieces of fresh fish, rice. It was really good. I'd definitely eat here again as I love sushi. Oh and I didn't ask for the 5% discount even though I paid cash. It's an extra .70 cents....
