better than the other places in the city, I had a great and nice dinner here and I know you will love this all.
Best sushi in town – not so friendly staff but excellent food, i ate their with my wife dinner at valentines day it was beautiful they have like little sitting area wehere you seat on the floor, go eat there if you never did!
Decent – Meh, pretty good - seemed more hyped-up to me than anything but not bad.
My Favorite! – After living in the Twin Cities for several years,I've tried most of the sushi restaurants in the area,and always return to Fuji Ya.It is the absolute best option for sushi and Japanese food in town.Without a doubt.
I'll definitely be back! – I was visiting from Chicago this week,and my friends in Minneapolis met me at Fuji Ya for some sushi and sake.The sake list was very impressive,the service was great,and the sushi definitely surpassed the usual sushi fare I have eaten at home.I know where I'll be visiting again on my next trip to the Twin Cities!
go anywhere else, this place is overrated – Officially, Fuji Ya is beyond overrated. I have been here four times now and each time the staff has been rude (excuse me, server? but your art degree isn't changing the fact that you're bringing me fish) the food was mediocre at best and the prices were a joke. This place is annoying.
Blah Waitress Bummed My Birthday Dinner – Last Wednesday I had dinner in the main dining room. A private room was arranged ahead of time and we were sat immediately despite the packed bar and lounge area. This was my second visit. My first experience was in the front room where I had drinks and food with a friend but a terrible waitress, forgetful and unprofessional. I wanted to give Fuji-Ya a second chance. Unfortunately the food was just ok, nothing outstanding, our waitress was just ok, not horrible but very uninterested and definitely seemed to be just going about the motions. Now, the part that really bummed me out was the family with a bunch of kids running around the adjoining table/room that were so loud we could hardly carry on a conversation. I'm all for bringing your children out for dinner, but these people's kids were beyond loud and unruly. Overall, the food, service and atmosphere really disappointed me for the evening I had planned. The best part of the evening was the crab cake appetizer that I thought was flavorful and the presentation was beautiful. Not enough of a reason to ever return however.
Good sushi and service – I was a little nervous to try Fuji-Ya after reading the past two reviews, however, we decided to give it a try anyway...and I'm glad we did. I know what good sushi should taste like (I frequently eat sushi in Hawaii, California and Seattle) and I can vouch that Fuji-Ya has fresh fish. The yellowtail, white toro, eel, and salmon were all very good. I was disappointed that they were out of blue fin tuna which is my favorite. I wasn't as happy with the scallop, which tasted a little fishy. We also tried a couple vegetarian rolls which were great. I did think the cucumber roll was overpriced...almost $5 (they are usually $2-3). Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, even after a big dinner rush came in. We also received a hot towel before dinner which was a nice touch. I would recommend Fuji-Ya to others looking for good sushi and would go back again.
Never again – Both food and service was just horrible. Fish didn't taste fresh and the sushi rice was kind dry. Our server was very unfriendly.
possibly some of the worst sushi I've ever had – I know I know, I couldn't believe it either, especially after reading the reviews contained herein, but...
After walking in to Fuji-Ya and noticing that behind the sushi bar resided two young dudes of Mexican persuasion (and I do mean 'dudes'), I kinda knew what I would be in for.
The "dudes" didn't disappoint....They dished some horribly weak sushi...the fish was thin and tasteless, the Tako was as rubbery as your grandmothers garter, our waitress was rude and "hurried" even though I was there on an as un-busy weekday night as could be imagined in downtown St Paul.
Did I mention the goofballs behind the bar?? OMG! They stood there grinning like Cheshire cats, slicing the horrible, tasteless fish, with Grinch-like, knowing smiles like they knew we were all suckers for being there.
I would never, ever go back.
