Great Sushi

We had a great sushi dinner here. Interesting maki, very nicely selected and served fish. We had a warm welcome from the friendly staff. You can bring your own wine, too.

The food is consistently terrific, and the people (especially Jackie) are great. Suggest you try the peking duck appetizer, the Tropical roll, or the Bruce roll, among many others. Many many choices and I have never had one I did not like.

Sushi Ya has met the test consistently through the 20+ years since opening. Recently it has offered fusion dishes tending toward Thai cuisine,and offered some Chinese sauces wth chicken,pork, and beef dishes.Weekly,half... More

There are many wonderful sushi restaurants in the area, and this is among the best. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. The food is beautifully prepared as sushi should be, and there are many options for rolls. As the menu has recently changed, some items are not listed, so perhaps I have an advantage over new customers. Favorite rolls are: Jade,... More

I've been to Sushi Ya numerous times some years ago, and twice recently. The taste of the sushi is ok, nothing special. They have some variety in rolls and they are trying now to be a litte more hip and fun, which I appreciate. The real downfall for me is the portion size. We regularly get sushi from another local...

What a fantastic surprise. We happened to be in the area and spent the next three days speaking only about this meal. The sushi was phenomenal, we had the sashimi combo (deluxe?) and the Alaska beach role (salmon, spicy with crunch). Can't recommend enough, was a winner.

Sushi Ya's spicy tuna is our gold standard. After eating at some of the best Japanese restaurants up and down the East Coast, we continue to crave the tuna that Sushi Ya prepares. Their seafood is ALWAYS very fresh and well prepared. The tuna tartar is not to be missed. For a local establishment that should be rated tops in... More

Quiet place, set back off main road in Valley Center. Decent food, decent service. Average prices. Can't think of anything totally outstanding. Nice neighborhood restaurant.
