I stopped in with a friend after a few drinks at the Lyndale Tap House. I have been here several times and will say that their happy hours are an amazing value. I always struggle a bit when I get the bill and it is not happy hour, but the food is so good and they have amazing atmosphere. We... More

The service and atmosphere are wonderful and the sushi is always great. I tend to go more for the sashimi and nigiri rather than the rolls but their rolls are also fantastic. The sushi is always fresh and when they run out, they are out! This is not pulled from a freezer and then defrosted, this is all fresh fish.... More

Although Fuji Ya is always crowded - it's part of it's character. Last visit was middle of the week at peak dining hour - 6:45. We were told it would be an hour wait. We ordered wine and sat down right near the hostess desk at a waiting bench. The place was packed. Several people came in, heard the wait... More

I was nearby Fuji Ya in Minneaolis with an hour available and sought it out based on strong reviews. I was able to get a seat at the sushi bar which I prefer. The staff was helpful and prompt. The Sushi chef was excellent, quickly taking my order and serving it to me at the perfect pace across multiple plates,... More

I've been here 3 times now. Each time I and my friends have felt uncomfortable, and unwanted by the hostess, as though we were an imposition on them. Don't get me wrong, the rest of the staff was great, and the food is excellent. But there are plenty of other great sushi places around MSP that I am sure wouldn't... More

Freshness and quality is key with sushi, and Fuji-Ya does that perfectly. They're rolls are "dynamite" (no pun intended) the sashimi is top-notch. Highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar for a up close and personal experience with the chefs who actually roll up your sushi, very entertaining time.

Great Food! Went with friends to share sushi and really enjoyed our meal! The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the sushi selections. Would definitely come again.

The restaurant is in a fairly boring building but the food and service were truly awesome. We tried a multitude of items and not one was below excellent! The soft shell crabs were delicious as was the ngiri. The spicy tuna rolls were awesome and the unfiltered sake - while only two selections were available - was delicious. A truly... More
