I have been going here for years and I am always impressed. This is my favorite Sushi spot in town. I've had sushi at other spots but this is still my favorite. I recommend going during happy hour because the deals are really good and there is a ton of great Sushi on the happy hour menu. We always start... More

My husband and I visited Fuji Ya for a nice dinner. The calamari is excellent, some of the best I've ever eaten. I had the crunchy maki roll. My husband had a seasonal spicy specialty roll. Both were awesome! Definitely coming back!

Consistently excellent food and service. Sitting at the sushi bar is the best experience. Over the last 10 years have never had a bad experience

Fuji Ya has been around for a very long time...before sushi was the rage. It was located on the river and has moved a couple times since they reopened. I enjoy coming here but prefer the ambiance of the front room with the bar rather than the back open space with little atmosphere and a plain view of the loos.... More

Went to Fuji Ya for the first time (we are new to Mpls) and had incredible sushi. Loved the tuna sashimi and all of the specialty rolls we had especially the South of the Border. Yum. Yum. Also the service was awesome. Will be returning to try out their happy hour.

We have been going to Fuji Ya for more than 10 years and last night was not what we expected. The first drinks and edamame arrived promptly then we had a 20 minute wait for our shared salad. 20 minutes after that, our (fairly inattentive) waitress came to our table and said that our sushi would be "right up". 15...

After inaugurating Minneapolis to Japanese cuisine overlooking the river, Fuji Ya keeps the tradition intact. the raw fish and rolls are superb. And though the service is spotty, the food is worth it.

We still like Fuji Ya, but alas some of their renditions are not what they were. Happy hour menu while not spectacular is good value. Nice place for pre-theater. Cheers

My wife and I love to stop by here a few times a month to try out new dishes. The bar is a fun stop to watch the sushi chefs in action, it's a great location for people watching along with trying out unique sushi or other Japanese dishes. It is on the pricey side but not bad for the... More
