A gem in Downtown Dallas.
I'm a vegetarian, so this is a testament to how amazing this place was. I stepped out of my shell (after 10 years mind you) and gobbled up this places sushi like no tomorrow.
Granted there were some fish out of season, but its also why I give major props that the chef didn't prepare it without letting us know of the quality. I must say the eel and the tuna were beyond amazing. And I advise anyone going here to try the spider roll.
Best place for sushi!.
I loved the sushi! Best sushi I have ever tasted in my life! It looked good, and it tasted good. The rolls were delicious! The California rolls were the best! This place is the best place to go for sushi. (Great service too)
Very Good Downtown Sushi in a Friendly Setting.
Just moved downtown and I've tried Sushi Japan and now SushiYa. The latter wins, hands down. The fish was much more fresh tasting than what I tasted at Sushi Japan. Two of us shared tuna sashimi (5 pcs.), Spider Roll, California Roll, 2 Unagi sushi (4 pcs. fresh water eel), Dragon Fly Roll (tempura w/spicy tuna and crispies on top, the best of all of them). Then we finished with a Sumo Tower (like an ahi tower...the best I've had). Total was $89 with 4 Sapporo beers total. That's a lot of food for a reasonable deal.
Specialty rolls average $12.95, basic rolls were from $5-9. Looks like they have some great bento lunches, too, for $8-12. One roll I want to try next is the Tears in Heaven (baked salmon jalapeno roll topped with wasabi tobiko...I brought home a menu to remember this).
Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive (and we weren't the only ones in the place). We sat at a booth next to the sushi bar and the chef delivered our plates over the little divider; he was really into it, too, announcing each one in Japanese and English. The atmosphere is pleasant and overall is cleaner and less tacky (read: no karaoke) than Sushi Japan. There are nice leather booths and chairs and a large bar and sushi bar with leather stools. They had some classic rock playing and the tvs were on.
I recommend this as a nice place to get your sushi fix downtown. The location on Elm (between a parking garage and Enchiladas/Subway) is a huge plus...it's close to where people live and just a block from the Main Street bars.
Up-and-coming lunch spot offers an extensive sampling of sashimi, teriyaki, and rolls to hurried downtown workers.. In Short A welcome addition to downtown's cultural milieu, this Japanese restaurant is small and unassuming in design but gets downright creative when it comes to sushi. The Tears in Heaven contains baked salmon in a jalapeno roll topped with wasabi tobiko (fish eggs). Less daring diners will be impressed with the variety of tempura and noodle dishes, which can beef, chicken, shrimp, or vegetables.
