I returned to Ota Ya after nearly 10 years of living away from Bucks County. OTa Ya still has the freshest sushi. It is tasty and refreshing. We ended up getting take out and I wish we had ordered more. Love it!

From the moment we step inside, we feel like we are visiting family. We are greeted with a smile, and shown to our table. Fair warning - Friday nights are VERY busy with lots of regulars. Be sure to make a reservation or get there before 7p.m. The wasabi dressing on the garden salad is amazing. The Veggie Tempura is... More

Best sushi around by far. It is not a fancy place but their sushi is absolutely terrific. I recommend the spicy tuna pizza to start. The spicy rock roll is on their special menu and is the best. Friday nights are very busy so expect a wait. They also do take out. We go or take out at least once... More

Ate here once. the sushi was so bad I couldn't finish it. the food is terrible. I later read in the newtown health inspection report that they got cited for roaches in the kitchen, a nest under the dishwasher, and I almost vomited. the health inspectors went back and the issue still wasn't taken care of. This place should be... More

The sushi was average. It is a BYOB. It is small and quaint. The sushi is comparable to other places in the area.

Time and again we come to this place tucked in a typical suburbian shopping strip in a heart of Bucks County. It is a secret you do not want to share but wish it well. Sushi and rolls and sashimi and salads are simple yet original and super fresh and tasty. The athmospher is your best aunt's house. They greet... More

We have just come back from our 2nd time trying Ota-ya and both experiences were very positive....we experienced quite a few various sushi/sashimi offerings and specialty rolls here - and each one was top notch. I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to even the very experienced lover of Sushi. On the other side of the coin and explaining... More

Would not go anywhere else for sushi. Have not had a single negative experience here in years. If you like your sushi creative in presentation and taste, perfect place for you.

Ota-ya is hidden away in an odd location just outside of the Borough. We have been there a few times for dinner. In our experience the sushi is good, and service is fine. But the atmosphere is sort of drab. It's good for couples or families but it's not really a place you would bring company, unlike some of the... More

We went on New Year's Day which maybe wasn't the best time to go. The staff was bored and inattentive, almost rude. The food was mediocre at best. The décor is tired and a bit dirty. We won't be going back.
