they served ramen and sushi. Alcohol was good with sake or draft Asahi beer. Affordable restaurant with big number of tables. Service was great.

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.

High quality sushi!! Love the food and the staff. The San Carlos roll is one of my favorites. If you can sit at the sushi bar. The chefs will let you try all sorts of new things.

Four meals here and it just gets better. Peter the owner and Sushi Chef is a fantastic host and his dishes are outstanding. The fish is always fresh. his hand rolls are the best I've had!

Called in mid week and was fairly quiet. The service and the food was great, surprisingly filling as well. Large selection to choose from, was really spoilt for choice. Good draft beer to round off an enjoyable evening. Easy to get to and easy parking. Really good value.

I was in Redwood Shores for a meeting and wanted sushi for lunch. I picked Aya Sushi simply because it was the closest and I am glad I did. The diningroom is quiet and pleasant.
