    Starry Eye roll was noms. We should have ordered from the recommended list. By the end of the meal everything tasted the same – deep fried and mushy. I am totes not up to being a veggie head.

    A staggering amount of menu choices thankfully doesn't equate to unfocused dishes. A rare place where avowed meat eaters don't feel deprived. Read more

    Tried the "seafood" salad and broiled eggplant, tofu and portobello mushroom. Carefully prepared and simple, but both sauces (sesame and miso) were a tad too strong.

    Don't let the tempura lead you astray -- this place is best for super delicious pure veggies. Get the Cha-Ya Delight 9 times out of 10.

    This place is more vegetarian than Japanese, unfortunately. And kind of pricey. But food is not bad, so kinda mixed feelings.

    Since you've been so good to yourself eating healthy food at Cha Ya, head a few blocks away to Bi Rite Creamery and reward yourself.
