Katana-Ya is a Japanese home-style restaurant owned by James Chooi. The restaurant has been serving the area since 1993 offering everyone from senior citizens to college students a wide variety of economically priced Japanese appetizers and entrees. There is a sushi counter here where Chef Tora Tanaki will prepare your sushi entrees from Chirashi to the roll of the day. The restaurant is clean and comfortable with low tables and gentle lighting. The staff is friendly and accommodating and speaks English as well as Japanese. Many people come back just to visit James and his staff after moving away from the area.
