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 closed down. If you don't believe me do a quick search online and read the report for yourself, it gets published in the newtown patch. Needless to say, I won't be back.

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 you as the best friends, remember names of your kids and grandchildren and even when they don't, they make you feel at home. It is not expensive but it is very good: the presentation, the taste, the service. Do not expect a fancy modern interior. It is as basic as it comes. What brings loyal customers back are the friendly owners and superior quality of the dishes.
Highly recommend!

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 why I rated this Very Good but short of Excellent - the room was clean but the decor un-imaginative and dull - could use a bit of sparkle - and unfortunately - 2 of our Miso Soups came out too cool to the table. However - this was quickly and pleasantly remedied and the rest of the meal was a solid experience.

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.
