Reviews for Cha-Ya

The type of food that you could eat every day of the week if you wanted to! It reminds me of the comfort food that my grandma used to make me as a kid, and really has a lot of nostalgic dishes for me. :') We've been coming here for years and years and it's always the same GREAT quality. The miso soup is a family favorite for anyone feeling sick or in need of a pick-me-up. This is comfort food at its very best (and healthiest). We also love getting the hot sake with our full review
I have come here three times and will probably keep coming back. You really can't go wrong with a restaurant if you nail food quality and service. The food is delicious. It's not the best vegan sushi in the Bay Area but it's pretty close. For what you pay for at Cha-ya, there is no buyer's remorse. I recommend the yam roll and the mixed vegetable roll. The line is also never wrapped around the block, which is surprising because this place is quality enough to be a hopping, full review
Amazing customer service from the start- what a wonderful, family-run feeling this place has! Total comfort food for the vegan who happens to be asian. Not to say I'm a vegan myself, but it was worth seeing how many savory and umami flavors can come out of a great variety of vegetables! Soup made this the perfect place to go to after a muddy day out at tilden park (which I highly recommend visiting, including their petting zoo! I've included my reviews for those full review
