Really fun

This is a great place to go with couples or with a big party. If you haven't had tepenaki before it's a must. The food has been great 9 out of 10 times. The sushi is also really good. If you have kid's they'll remember it forever. Fun times and good food

When you walk into the restaurant you will be greatly pleased by the atmosphere and the decor. The vibe is calm and great with a neat wall with Japanese mosaic art. Our server was very polite and had a great attitude. However the food there is a little pricey for the quality. Both my girlfriend and I ordered California Rolls.... More

The decor has changed since the last time I was there, but the food is just as great. I had the chirashi sushi, and this is one of the very few places in the Twin Cities that I have been able to find it at a reasonable cost. I continue to be amazed that the sushi chefs here will actually... More

We had a great selection of sushi sitting out on the upper patio. It was a very pleasant evening with great service.

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...

Saint Paul offers several sushi bars. Saji Ya is one of those offerings. Stop in for their happy hour, you'll be glad you did!

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.
