Reviews for Cha-Ya

Cha-Ya is my favorite vegetarian/vegan restaurant!! Their dishes are so carefully made and it always feels like a real treat to dine there (or get take out)! You can tell they put a lot of thought into each dish, for they are all delicious! Highly recommend the Dengaku and Tonchi Nasu. Also, I am so glad to have found a place that uses all paper take-out boxes WITHOUT the plastic lining!

I have only had vegetarian sushi once before in NYC. I had really high expectations from this place and was not disappointed at all. The menu is really huge and should be a delight for all vegetarian folks. My friend and I had the Tempura Roll and Subaru Roll. Personally, I liked the tempura roll over the Subaru Roll. Also, special mention to the Ho ji cha, which was amazingly refreshing.Overall, this place is really good and I would definitely try other options on my next full review
Ordered dinner from here on uber eats. We got the Dengaku (eggplant tofu with mushroom) and it was TINY. I don't even think it would've been enough for one person, let alone the two of us that were sharing it. Even the steam white rice quantity was very small. It was overpriced for the quantity they provided. However, it was AMAZING and I am told it was very authentic. So the quality of the food somewhat made up for the quantity. We also got a few sushi rolls (6 pieces each) full review
