I've eaten here many times and always enjoy my meal. They make a delicious spicy tuna, my favorite. Marina is lovely.

We go to this restaurant on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. The food and friendly people are great. But if you are looking for a place with some atmosphere try again. The atmosphere is a fifty gallon fish tank.

If you like Japanese food you will be surprise to discover “Little Japan” in the middle of Newtown. Once you find the place ( off the Main St) the rest is a pure pleasure. Having eaten there for years we never had a bad experience....More

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...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...More

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

I doubt it. The restaurant does not have its own website. Your best bet is to call the restaurant directly at 1 215-860-6814 to find out if they have gift certificates for sale and how to obtain one.
