For some reason I find myself visiting the airport area more frequently than usual, maybe it’s because of my newly appointed “airport taxi” service for relatives coming in from out of town. The first question or request out of their mouths as soon as they come through gates are, “what’s there to eat?” and “what’s good around here?”, luckily for them YummyLocal region includes the airport.
Sushi-Ya Fine Japanese Cuisine is a great quiet place to have a nice casual dinner either with guests visiting from out of town or just with local company. Sushi-Ya presents a traditionally themed Japanese decor mixed with soft lighting which creates a very relaxed dining atmosphere (perfect for people who have been stuck on the plane for over 7 hours).
We highly recommend the sushi which was very decorative and incredibly fresh. We paid our complements to the Sushi Chef (Myung Ho Lim) and he mentioned that the he personally buys the fish every morning! You won’t find any waterly tuna or frozen salmon here guys.
Sushi-Ya has a great variety of cooked food such as noodles ($8.95 – $12.95) and a wide selection of tempura dinners ($13.95 – $19.95). You can sample the most variety by ordering one of the bento box combos ($17.95 – $25.95) but the” must have” for every visitor should be from the sushi menu. The Sushi-Ya rolls($9.95) is fantastic and the Volcano Roll ($6.95) is sensational!
Although most dinner meals come with an appetizer, desert, and a mid meal snack if you’re feeling extra hungry I recommend sharing (one of my personal favourties) the spicy bulgogi ($15.95) as a communal dish to go along with the sushi.
All in all it was a great dinner and the out of towners were extemely impressed with Sushi-Ya so much that we might make a return trip before they board their flight to go home.
