When you walk inside you dont expect the food will be so surprising. Lady of the house was most friendly and the food was fantastic. Real refreshing and different kind of tastes and sushis. Absolutely worth visiting. Thanks for the great night.

Last December we were a small group of 7, travelling along the coast of Algarve with two kids 7 years old. We ended up finding the best place to eat our favorite food - sushi! Super friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices, fish is superbly fresh, the "sakerinhas" (drink with sake) are a must, especially the strawberry one. Hot sushi is deliciously... More

Sushi is excellent, high quality. Prices are relatively high, but that's often the case with sushi. The place itself could use some more decoration, bit boring.

The place is really small, you have to look for it. Once inside it seemed very cozy. Big mirror on the wall to make the place look bigger than it actually is. There was so much to choose from the menu, the waiter advised me to pick a few I liked to put in the menu and then added some... More

One of the best sushi restaurants that I've ever been... A small place, good vibrations, excellent service and the food is real special!!! I was there with my kids and some friends and the price was a little bit higher than I expected... But definitely it deserves every € I paid...

I am an absolute fan of this sushi restaurant. While I was still living in Faro, I tryed other sushi restaurants but this is by far the best. Now that I am living in Holland after trying a couple of restaurants here I keep the same opinion. In every holiday in Portugal I am back to Sushi Ya, para matar... More

The place is not easy to find but the quality of the sushi is superb. Sadly all-you-can-eat was not an option in August for some reason and the prices were above average for the standard in Portugal but it was of exceptional quality.
