Very tasty food, decent menu, nice staff

I've eaten there four times in the last couple of months and each time the welcome has been warm, the service has been great and the food is really good. The Kobe beef was disappointing for the price, but everything else is really good. I'll be back!

We love sushiya. I have had sushi multiple times as well as the terriaki chicken, which is awesome! Great place to go for a drink as well :) Make sure to get a table up at the sushi bar so that you can watch them make sushi, and sometimes they let you try some for free :)

Real sushi in Kalamazoo? We aren't landlocked, but the waters around here aren't where sushi comes from. Somehow they do it and do it well, and thank goodness they do. High quality, super fresh, and delicious sushi right here in K-Town. The menu can be overwhelming, but the staff is friendly, well-trained, and can help you navigate. You will find... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant a short distance from the Radisson hotel in Kalamazoo. The service is excellent, the menu a bit overwhelming with the level of options but fantastic and the sushi amazing! There is a variety of Sake's and you can even buy a bottle there as well! This my go to place whenever I... More

This place is never packed at lunch and it should be. It is so fresh and delicious. A huge menu. Great drinks, tons of fancy cooked and raw rolls. I love everything I have ever had in there. Lunch is easy and fast service and I love the interior and staff. Great place to go.

We stop here whenever we get a chance. The food is always good, service is good, and the prices are very reasonable. We have had sushi in many different places and Sushi Ya ranks right up there with the best.

There was a large group of us and my friend Amy had reserved the large room in back for us. We were a bit rowdy and having fun. I had some edamame and a vodka martini to start. Both were so-so. Had me a little worried, as it was my first time at Sushi ya. We all ordered different things... More

Sushi Ya has great sushi. They make their own soy sauce. Service is always good. The edamame is great. Try the Harry Potter Roll, the mango tango, or the Kalamazoo. All Fantastic.

We have a tradition in our family...for your birthday dinner you get to pick where you want to eat. Four of our five kids pick Sushi Ya. They have some of the best sushi in Kalamazoo. It is a great place for a lagre group. Most of the time we are able to get the large room in the back... More

Sushi Ya was a welcome addition to Kalamazoo's cuisine scene. Finally, a great sushi restaurant! If you want a good deal, come for lunch and get a bento box.
