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....

I was a little hesitant about trying this place out, but I really enjoyed it. Sushi Ya has an all you can eat dinner menu. It has a cost of $19.99. You can order as much as you like, but do not waste food, as you will be charged for any excessive leftovers. I believe this is a fair deal.... More

Sushi Ya Joliet has an all-you-can-eat buffet for both lunch ($14.99) and dinner ($19.99) serving the freshest fish in the local market. Their decor is very plain but the food makes up for any shortcomings in ambiance. They provide beer, wine, mixed drinks, soda, tea for nominal prices. Best to get there before 6pm on weekends to avoid the crush... More

Restaurant was busy and recommended by a business colleague. The all you can eat sushi was a great deal, but the service was not great. I even overheard two servers complaining about another guest. Not very professional.

We always get the all you can eat Dinner for $20. Delicious! The servers are great, they have all been around for a while now. Sometimes on Saturday the food takes a while... More
