Excellent quality. Always fresh sushi fish. Far supetior in quality to any other place in Bucks County and beyond --- we have tried many, many places. Owner and staff are very friendly and helpful...always remember regulars names and what they usually order. Service is great too.

This place would go crazy if it was in a more prominent place and not hidden in a dark strip center. That enabled us to get seated right away at 8pm on a Saturday night. Ordered the dinner box, excellent presentation and very tasty. Wife had sushi and ate every last grain of rice. Prices are reasonable, service friendly and... More

Otay ya, Newtown (haven't been to the one in Lambertville) has become our Friday night regular go to place. Reason, reasonable prices, BYOB and excellent consistent food and service. Carmen is our regular waitress and has an incredible memory knowing (after our first visit) what we liked. The crab rangoon and the sauce it comes with (on the plate) is... More

Ota-ya competes VERY well with two other Japanese restaurants in Newtown. Food is good and prices are reasonable. Service was very prompt on a very busy Saturday night although we did have to wait even though we had a reservation.

One of the best BYOB places for sushi, if not the best, that we've ever been to. My hubby and i are regulars at this small, casual place tucked in the middle of a small strip mall. The board specials are inspired, not at all atypical of sushi. The rolls are easily thin layers of fish on fish on fish,... More

This is a 'must go to' restaurant whenever I am in Newtown. Not smart but great food and great value. Much cheaper than the other sushi venue in town and in my opinion much nicer sushi.

We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and have always got great service and good food. Today we went in for lunch at 1 p.m. There was six of us with some out of town family and we were quietly talking, there was nobody else in the restaurant. At the end of the lunch, I asked for another cup... More

This is a small casual neighborhood restaurant that serves delicious sushi and friendly service. We visit here often and can always count on a good meal. Highly recommend any of the sushi and sashimi plates for a nice assortment of fresh sushi. I like the eel handroll and Ota Ya salad as well. They do not have a liquor license... More

This has been our trusted and reliable turn-to sushi place for years. It's a small restaurant, which may be a bit hard to find if you are coming for the first time, but don't shy away.  The sushi is always good, and they have THE best spicy tuna (salmon, scallop) rolls, especially if you ask for the extra spicy!  The...
