Excellent Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice and Seaweed salad for lunch. Very attentive staff. I sat at the sushi bar and was very entertained by the very skillful and professional sushi chefs. Loved it.

At the recommendation of our son, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Izaka-ya by Katsu-ya. Their sushi is very fresh and reasonably priced. We highly recommend the spicy tuna on crispy rice, maguro and hamachi nigirizushi, Uni and the crunch roll. Their other menu items...More

Always long queues; no advanced booking; expensive; only if you could afford the expensive Japanese sushi and sashimi restaurant. As a return customer, it doesn’t disappoint me for the quality of food, but be aware of your wallet.

No joke, The sushi here is fantastic. Go with reservations, or be prepared to wait. There is always a line, but it is well worth it! They have creative, but not too fussy, rolls. Fresh, fresh, fresh! Service is good and the staff are friendly.

Have been enjoying Izaka-Ya for the past couple of years. However the restaurant local management keeps turning over and the hostesses are the rudest people EVER!!!! We have given them a few “do overs” because we love the sushi chefs so much, but the incompetent...More

My son and daughter-in-law wanted us to experience "the best suchi ever," by which they meant here. And, yes, the suchi is very good as are some of the noodle dishes. But, be prepared for a long wait, even if you decide, as we did,...More
