The atmosphere & service at Ten-ya are both excellent. The ambiance of Pinehurst is part of the charm. The servers are attentive, but don't hover. I asked about a particular wine by the glass, and my server insisted on giving me a taste. The sushi special for the day was delicious.

Ten-ya is not as good as it used to be. New owners. Mostly Thai food. Sushi is ok but pieces are cut too large. Tables have strong odor of the cleaner they use.

We loved this place but had not been back in awhile. We were greeted and seated promptly and the staff was very nice. The food was beautifully prepared ... but lacked taste. I am no an expert but something was missing. The sushi was bland, the shrimp was bland, the duck looked like duck but tasted of nothing and the... More

Although Ten Ya is open for dinner we love the lunch for the Bento Boxes of various combinations.(not served at night) Always delicious and right in the heart of the village.

Greeted by a lovely young girl who got us some wine then ordered our meal. Before our meal we were offered soup & salad, we had the salad which had a tasty ginger sauce (unfortunately they would not give me the recipe due to secret ingredients). For our main dinner we ordered a Sashimi platter & Rainbow roll. The fish... More

Had lunch there. Service was ok. I don't think the waiter had much experience waiting tables. We didn't have to wait a long time for our food. I have had better food but I guess I would say it was ok. Most likely wouldn't go there again.

We enjoyed coming here when the place was run by Japanese owners. Now from what I hear, the place is owned by Thai people. There is a pleasant Japanese lady server but outside of that we were disappointed with the so called Japanese food and sushi. They added a ton of Thai dishes so probably better try those. Owner should... More
