Originally from Oceanside NY sushi ya was always the place to go for sushi. Now living in Maine my wife and I make it a priority to go here when back in town. The quality of the sushi is perfect. So fresh so wonderful. They have such a large selection of special rolls. Something I can't find in Maine. When... More

Consistently good sushi served by a pleasant staff. In a town that has several sushi restaurants, this one has established itself as one of the best.

I have spent years hearing about this restaurant,so my son and I decided to try it while he was home from college. The hostess and waitress were pleasant and the place was quiet (probably because it was a weeknight). The food was pretty good too, but I have a major issue with their cleanliness. I had to ask for the... More

Since we moved we don't get to sushi ya like we used to but whenever we visit the area we try to go. We've been going for many years back before they moved from their much smaller location not far from the current place. Not only was everything as good as i remembered but i think it was even better... More

This place located on the mail drag of RVC is both cute and very good, the servers are polite and very efficient. The prices wont hurt you either. Give them a try, I think you'll be happy you did..

The restaurant is very clean, the sushi is very fresh, I believe that the rolls are getting thinner, but they are still very tasty and fresh. The wait staff have always been very friendly. Rockville Centre is a good distance from home, but I still feel that the hospitality of Sushi Ya is worth the trip.

The food was excellent. The restaurant is clean. Steve, our waiter, was friendly, good-hearted, and gave us a lot of attention. And that's what women from Boca Raton, FL & Coral Springs, FL need. Thank you Steve for an excellent experience.

I have been there a few times in the past. Found it to be just ok. Now, due to economic conditions, the portions have shrunk, but the prices did not. When you combine that with the cold and sometimes rude service, it is time to cross this place off the list. By the way, the sushi now looks like it... More

I have been a regular customer of Sushiya since it was located in the smaller locale on Merrick Road. The food, service and hospitality is OUTSTANDING! We typically run into all of the other regulars who collectively sing the praises of this well run sushi bar- turned full service restaurant. This is the Japanese dining experience that will rival any... More
