5 out of 5 stars Updating prior review. Excellent service, presentation, and flavor. Another terrific choice for vegans in SF--Cha Ya has successfully brought its fare across the bay and arrived in good shape. Seating is more accommodating of private conversations. Same tasty food. Vegan Living

4 out of 5 stars I love knowing everything is vegan and there's no animal particles hidden in the food or shared cutting boards/knives. I recommend their sushi, seaweed salad, and tempura. Note - can be pricey. Unfortunately the only downside is the cost ... typically costs me ~$20 for dinner. Weekend lunch is great value - most of the same items from the dinner menu, and a bit cheaper! On my last two visits, service is still good but not stellar when compared to previous experiences (food takes longer to arrive or entree forgotten so they gave it to me for free) tammy
