I have been a fan of Aya Sushi for 15+ yrs. I appreciate Peter and his delicious sushi rolls, including the Lion queen, Red Dragon, Sexy Ban and Giants roll, they are packed with flavor. There are also some great lunch specials too.

We went here because Ganko was closed. Service was poor, food was disappointing, how could this possibly be 5 star?! We will NOT be back.
