Me and my husband enjoyed sitting in soya restaurant , Great food and service. We both had misu soup and it was delicious , too bad it comes in small ball . Hibachi was great. The California roll was ok. Prices are average. We will go back again.

Surprisingly, this place was not too busy for a Friday night (but there is a lot of competition in Ghent). It's a great little sushi bar, with fresh ingredients and fun presentations. Our server was very attentive and personable. This is a very solid choice, especially off the main section of Ghent restaurants. Definitely give them a try because they... More

A group of us went for Sushi, etc. The food was super fresh, wonderful presentation. Our customer service was great. Could not ask for better service. However, the menu nor the chef is very flexible and it was strange for an Asian restaurant but they aren't very vegetarian friendly so if you are a vegetarian just know that menu is... More

I cannot believe they are still open....I never see a crowd at dining time. The restaurant is awesome and the service is good....but I go usually to a different place for sushi or sashimi.

The best sushi I've had in VA. I say this because I've had sushi in Japan. The restaurant is trendy and comfortable. Awesome drinks and more importantly the sushi is amazing. The service was fast and polite.

My son and I went for dinner. The wait staff was attentive but the service was a little slow. The additional attention made it bearable. The quality, frreshness and preparation of the sushi made it even more so. I have eaten sushi from coast to coast and this is as good as I have ever eaten. Go and enjoy!

I visited Soya after purchasing a groupon. I am a big sushi fan, but have been disappointed in the quality of many of the places I have visited. Soya was a very pleasant surprise. I had the tekka don dinner and the tuna was fresh, thick and velvety. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I will definitely return!
