Top-notch sushi

Excellent sushi, served very quickly and at reasonable prices. I have not had a single specialty roll I didn't like, but if you want the best menu item, just get some simple salmon sushi. I also like that they have a few specialty rolls on sale each day.

This great sushi restaurant is in the heart of Michigan State's campus. Went here with my college son and husband. We had 4 rolls between us and they were all delicious. Exceptionally great amount of unique roll choices, including seasonal rolls with autumn themes. Order the ginseng tea - it is served in a HUGE mug with honey. Just delicious!!

Don't expect big city standards then this place is decent! We had sushi rolls, bento boxes (chicken and salmon teri), tempura and udons (house and seafood). All were ok. Staff was friendly!

I have been going to Sushi Ya for several years and was sad when we moved away from East Lansing. I was sure I'd find something close to home that would be comparable, but I was wrong. I had the pleasure of returning to East Lansing recently, and our first stop was at Sushi Ya. They are in a different... More

I was with some friends at another sushi place in the area and got a call to meet my husband at this place. I finished my roll, salad and soup and drove to Sushi Ya and had some more soup, salad and another roll! It was WAY better than the place I had been - everything was just so much... More

Decent service, attentive waitress, but little atmosphere, not helped by loud pipe music. Food ok but not great. I either ordered poorly or was not understood. Avoid "spicy tuna" which was tinned tuna with chilli sauce. Yuk.

Found this place using my Yelp app for Ipod. Just down the road from my hotel, it was worth walking in the 15 degree cold from my parking spot. Sat at the sushi bar and chatted with one of the 2 chefs. Waitress was nice, and the service was top notch! The food was great. Good, fresh tuna, and well... More
