We went to Saji-Ya to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We all ordered drinks and then sushi rolls for dinner after having an appetizer. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but it was only semi-busy for a Saturday night. The rolls were very good and they had a long list with many nice choices. But almost all of them had spicy...

A group of 11 of us were celebrating our daughter's birthday. Jorge did a phenomenal job keeping all of us entertained and Devon did a great job keeping the drinks full. The tuna, scallops and steak were as fantastic, as well as all the other foods. Everyone was satisfied with their meal and had a great time. Well worth the... More

Excellent California and Crunchy California Rolls. We always like the egg drop soup and Saji Ya salad. The Yaki Niku and, Vegi-tempura and Ocean Bento were all wonderful. We will be back again.

My husband located this restaurant and included it as a stop on our vacation to northern MN. Everything was delicious. We were there at noon and had lunch specials which included the sushi combo and shrimp tempura. We would recommend this restaurant.

Sushi, apps and meal were all very tasty. We were very happy with the vegetarian options. Nice atmosphere. Not the best service ever, but server was friendly.

This was our first time here. The food was all very delicious. There wasn't anything that we ate that we did not like. The one component that tarnished it was the poor service. They weren't busy with customers but with other things. Also, our bill had an error, an extra charge that we pointed out. It was fixed but it... More

We reserved a tapennaki table last weekend. Well, we got stuck in traffic looking at a Christmas light show and would not make our reservation in time. I called them to see if we could move our reservation back. They were quite pleasant about the change. When we arrived earlier than our new reservation time they got our table ready... More

You can't go wrong with either side. The Teppanyaki chefs are entertaining and all the food is terrific.
