The New Asian Kid on the Block :: Suishaya

Opened 3 weeks ago, this lovely little Asian oasis is located in Northeast Columbia off Killian Road… about the only non-chain, non-fast food spot on Killian. I know the folks in Cobblestone Park, Longcreek Plantation and neighborhoods nearby must be ecstatic. Finally a high caliber restaurant comes to this part of Northeast Columbia. Welcome Suishaya Asian & Bar!

Recessed lighting, warm colors and a clean modern design add an air of sophistication to Suishaya. A nice sized sushi bar and a good sized adult beverage bar with TV’s invite guests to relax and watch the sushi chef at work or chat with the bartender. And one of my favorite amenities… real tablecloths!

The sushi chef is a true artist…. and signs the creations in soy sauce! Love the little crab “remark”!

Suishaya’s menu offers traditional Chinese dishes and Japanese appetizers and sushi. Definitely some of the most artistic and well presented foods ever. For a new restaurant, the reviews have been outstanding. Most customers have commented on the excellent service, high quality of the foods and the presentation. On Google reviews, they’ve scored 4.6 stars and on Yelp they’ve scored 4.5 stars.

General Tso’s Chicken, a customer favorite – $12.50

You’ll find your favorite Chinese entrees at Suishaya and the pricing is fair. Entrees begin at $7.95 and go to $16.95 (Seafood Delight with fresh scallops, shrimp, lobster). Lunch entrees are served from 11am – 3:30pm and come with choice of egg roll or vegetable spring roll and your choice of steamed rice or fried rice – lunches priced from $6.95 – $7.75.

A sushi garden!

Sushi to me is first “fresh” and second “presentation”. I absolutely love to see a sushi chef who has mastered the presentation. Food so gorgeous you just want to stare at it for a while and admire the creativity and artistic expression. That is what you’ll find at Suishaya! Order nigiri sushi, sushi rolls, sashimi, combo plates or an elegant Party Boat for 1 or 2.

Party Boat for 1 ($39.95) or Party Boat for 2 ($59.95)

The location is in a corner spot of a little plaza catty-corner from the new Hampton Inn & Suites at exit 22. Don’t let the address fool you. The business faces Killian Road.
