No reservation on a weekday, got a table. Supposedly not the expected because it is a small joint. I did the same a different night and no reservation, no bueno for getting a table. However courteous waiters, skilled sushi chef. My waiter hooked me up on what was tasty.

Great sushi at very reasonable prices! Perfect spot to stop before an evening event in St. Paul.

Amazing food and Ambiance! Best sushi i ever had! Parking is a pain, and they are pricey, but this is a good once in a blue moon experience coz of the Amazing Nigiri - everything we ordered was delicious and perfect, down to the green tea! Our server, Lucy, was polite and knowledgeable! I had some ginger ice cream and even that was great, except for the over-kill on fruits and massive serving size (i didn't have space for dessert in the end). Love this place nonetheless!

Sushi restaurants are amongst my all time favorite places to eat. The Japanese focus equally on all aspects of the dining experience. It's an obsessive focus on aesthetics, presentation, and, of course, the quality of food. Fuji Ya is no exception. Even driving by the sharp appearance of their deep red sign against aluminum siding catches the eye. I walk in, take a seat, and pause to absorb my surroundings. There is that quirky Japanese feel that one comes to expect: the interesting hues of the walls, that unmistakable style of minimalism. One wall has a TV on it playing muted retro Japanese movies (Godzilla this time). Certainly a great touch. Now I feel the hunger. It's Thursday so the head sushi chef is working. This guy seems straight Japanese with the clothing, hair, and all. I order the "chef's choice" which is basically a meal sized platter of assorted nigirizushi and makizushi. Everything was fantastic as expected. I had the octopus for the first time which I found hard to eat; it won't break apart no matter how long you chew it. Their sake presentation was unique. A small cup was placed on a saucer and filled until purposely overflowing. This isn't the traditional way of serving but it was a unique touch. Fuji Ya is a pleasant experience, I would highly recommend checking it out. I've been to most of the Sushi places in town, none of them suck, but Fuju Ya stands out.

I want to love this place. The staff was knowledgeable, the food at the table next to us smelled great, and there was great selection. I just can't get over the fact that I waited an hour and a half while three tables were served before us. I finally had to give up and leave--I don't mind waiting, but not when nobody else in the restaurant is. I hope it was just an understaffed Thursday, and not a typical situation, because I really want to try this place again.

Fuji Ya has good sushi and reasonable prices. Their happy hour is above average. This is a great place to stop for dinner on your way to a show at the Fitzgerald Theater.

This was one of the best dining experiences ever, anywhere, I had the Reiko's bento box dinner, and my wife had the sautee'd salmon dinner. Dinner is started with a nice warm lemony cloth to clean your hands and face. We started with four dynamite rolls and some nice Edamame and warm rice wine. The very adept waitress returned with a rich and wonderful bowl of white miso soup, and a salad with a delicious sweet and spicy gingery dressing. When our entrees arrived, they were very artistically plated, and everything was perfect, my steak literally melted in my mouth, with the tempura shrimp just gorgeous. We finished dinner with some nice cold strawberry and chocolate mochi that the chef prepared with a beautiful piece of pineapple drizzled with chocolate sauce. I think it would be very hard indeed to find better vittles presented with such thought.
