Don't be fooled by the exterior, once inside you will be greeted warmly and they so want you to have a lovely experience. The Sushi is amazing the sushi chef takes real pride in presenting the best sushi I've ever tasted. Hubby not into sushi was not disappointed his salmon teriyaki was sublime accompanied by the best sticky rice. Service and food a definite 10, one restaurant in nice not to miss.

It's been 4 years now that I go to this restaurant and it really is a very good sushi.
Being in Japan 2 years ago, I thought I would have to wait a few months before trying the 'european' sushi and Sushiya just made me change my mind since it has it all: FRESH fish, real japanese preparation and very friendly service.
I really recommend this place.

We ate here on a friday evening and we were the only guests... incredible because the food is very good, fresh en nicely presented. The service is very friendly, so we cannot understand why it was so empty.. the really deserve customers. Sure the ambiance may be a little "chilly" but the food makes up for that.

Stepping inside, there was a slightly suspicious smell. Not detectable unless paying very close attention. But not right. We had Menu palet de poulet frit (11,50 €) and Menu sashimi (19 €).

First, some rice chips were served. Extremely boring and didn't serve any purpose. Then we had the simple cabbage salad. The seasoning was good and the vegetables were fresh. But the cabbage and the seasoning were way too warm so that almost ruined that dish. Then miso soups. They were very normal and good, no faults there.

The chicken (minced meat) was normal home cooking quality, ok by itself. But the lettuce under the chicken was too old to be plated. The sashimi was almost a joke as previously commented. Stamp sized pieces and half of them were not fresh. Not terrible, but no way could some of the fish be called fresh. The variety was not sufficient for 19 euros (though that price is including the mentioned other dishes on lunch).

The background music. Absolutely unimaginable. Playing one song in repeat, and what a song. The worst possible kind of 80s electronic music, basically muzak with a club beat. Absolutely nothing to do with Japan and the repetition made it feel like some kind of bad computer game where the music just doesn't change.

The nail in the coffin was the oshibori (hot towel). It was served after the meal. Why after? The worst possible thing to do with oshibori is to have them smell so much that they smell even before opening them and what's worse, they leave your hands terribly smelly after using. Needless to say, a catastrophe.

Food is fresh, tastes fresh. Delicious ! You can chose between excellent California rolls, sushis, sashimis and teriyaki beef, duck...
Best miso soup I know.
My favorites: midi soup + ebi-ten spicy + sea eel sushis! Just perfect.
Bonus point: Price is in the average of the other Japanese in Nice!
