    Spectacular Japanese Izakaya. Only place with similarly delicious Atlanta sushi is Umi. Vast menu with various types of Japanese food. Great Shochu and sake selection.

    Shoya Izakaya is tasty authentic Japanese in a real Japanese ambience. I'm not a sushi person but the scallop, ramen, fried salmon, oysters, teriyaki chicken were all fresh and flavourful

    Wow that was one of my best Japanese restaurants after being in Tokyo. Top! Like it.
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    Shoya's encyclopedic menu, spread over seven crowded pages, will send you into a rapture of excitement or cripple you with indecision. Dishes tend to be surprising. Order away and see what shows up.

    I came for ramen but had yaki soba instead. Really tasty. Also I had their tomago.. The best I had around ATL so far, freshly tasted egg. Yum!!

    one of the best ramen places in town. i liked the beef yanagawa and the grilled squid, which is a common delicacy in my hometown. they are usually packed, but we never had to wait long to be seated.

    Tonpeiyaki or okonomiyaki are recommended. So are the eel omelet, baked cheese curry, kushiyaki sheets, and cream korokke. But the grilled squid is not recommended. lots of japanese diners here, legit

    This place used to be on top but has fallen way behind in recent time. The sushi is ok but the izakaya selections are not tasty at all. Unless you're craving sochu, head elsewhere.
