    Great happy hour! Nice atmosphere and food doesn't take long. Love the salmon wontons, mussels good, and can't go wrong w/ their spicy tuna. Bartenders always pleasant! Paid parking lot is convenient.

    Voted Best Japanese Restaurant in 2010! The happy hour is legitimately happy, running “late” until 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday with discounts on beer, wine, and sushi, as well as daily sake.

    What's gold and fresh and red all over? The hip Fuji Ya, the latest--and sexiest--incarnation of the restaurant that introduced Japanese cuisine to Mill City. Read more

    Chef Matthew's ramen every Wednesday (only) is an eye-opening bowl of Japanese culture and flavor! Best way to get you toward the downside of your hump day. Fantastic.

    Hokey atmosphere and sub par service. It looks like they have good happy hour deals, but then they short you on the size of the rolls. Food is okay, but not great.

  • Adam C.

    Get a seat at the left corner of the bar, tons of space for all the great appetizers and perfect view of the window to people watch.

    Adam Chapin · November 17, 2012

    Yummy Sushi and Cocktails! Ask if they are working on any new Sushi ideas found some tasty options that were not on the menu that way. :-)

  • Jerod j.

    This place should be embarrassed to call what they sell as sushi. The more likely description is "bait". Fish is often bleach flavored and masked only by mayo. Mayo on sushi? Really?

    Jerod joseph · April 19, 2010

    Come later in the evening and sit at the sushi bar. They have to Get rid of pre-made rolls before close so they give it out!

    Nikki Lintvedt · November 12, 2011

    The best sushi in town without the really spendy price tag. Fantastic service and excellent recommendations for new sushi lovers.
