Reviews for Cha-Ya

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

Ordered delivery for two people to share. I had the seaweed salad roll and the shredded salad. The first was good, the second a miss as it was bland shredded veggies with a bad tasting dressing. The other person had vegetable tempura and the Shattuck roll. Tempura was ok (but they liked it more than I did) and I thought the Shattuck roll was bland. Prices seem steep to me sInce I'm not from Berkeley, but I did feel nicely full after this mostly healthy meal.

The food is delicious, its beautiful, it's healthy and it's unique. If you want to eat vegan and eat interesting, appetizing, filling food, come here! The service is warm and friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and simple, and there is enough space to have a conversation without hearing your neighbors.
