SA's best sushi bar

To be certain, the best way to eat at Fujiya is at the sushi bar. Service at the tables can be spotty, and you just won't get to watch them work. If you hav e a large party call in ahead so they will be prepared...but the best experience for a 2-4 person group is to sit at the sushi bar.

I have been eating with Junco and her crew for 20+ years and I have tried just about every new Sushi place in town that has opened, and I have always left wanting. Sometimes they will not have certain items like giant clam or uni, but they always have fresh fish, and a willingness to make custom rolls for you.

If you are looking for personal touch, chefs that will remember your name and what you like to order, and steer you to the freshest selection Fujiya Sushi Bar is your place. If you are really expecting great speedy timely service with lots of pictures on the menu because you need them, not the best preparations, go try Zushi Sushi, the yuppy and beginner sushi bar.

BEST SUSHI / BEST SERVICE / HANDS DOWN!

Junco and her staff are amazing. Their sushi is the freshest in town. You can order from their menu or you can ask them for something different and they make it right in front of you! The service is excellent... the atmosphere is delightful and they have a pretty full bar for those that need a stiff drink after a long day at work. I highly recommend you try their them out... you will be a lifelong customer as I am. If you already have been... there are many new amazing dishes for you to go back in and try!

Bad Service, Poor Food

Used to be a regular. Last time I went there, we sat for 40 minutes and received absolutely no service. During that time, two waitresses came over and asked if we had been waited on. We said 'No'. They left. Still, nobody came. We ended up walking out. Cashier knew us and looked very embarassed. The previous time we had eaten there, I had the Teriyaki Steak. The meat was a thin sandwich steak that looked like it came from Walmart. It was like eating a boot. Terrible. First time I had tried anything other than their Sushi. I'm surprised that they are still in business.

Outstanding food and service

Prices are reasonable for the quality and service. This is authentic Japanese food served with the finess of Southern Hospitality and Japanese artistic flow! There are two sections of the restaurant - if you like sports the sushi bar has both bar and tables with wide screen sports action. The family/group area has a more intimate appeal.

My favorite Japanese restaurant in SA

In every restaurant there are hits and misses. Sometimes you need to know what to order to enjoy the best side while avoiding the other one.
The best thing in Fujiya are the rolls. They have a huge selection of rolls, starting with cheap and simple ones and ending with such rich creations like Philips and Twin Dragon. Not everything is in the menu! Check the suchi list for the complete selection. The other thing that usually excites me is the large sashimi set. The ingredients are freshest and rich in taste. They also have a couple of salads (Tsunami and Fujiya) that they call Japanese style seviche and those are truly beautiful.
On the other hand, I was never impressed with anything that they do with meat. I tried some teriyaki, and sukiyaki, and shabu-shabu, and many more. This stuff was always okay at best.

So, in Fujiya go with the seafood, preferably raw!

A San Antonio Tradition!

Established over thirty years ago, the Wester family (Japanese-American) paved the way for Japanese cuisine in San Antonio. ""Mama"" Wester's spirit and legendary homestyle japanese cooking has kept multiple generations of regular customers coming back year after year after year. This locally owned restaurant stands the test of time in the midst of trendy sushi joints that mislead the general public into thinking that sushi is fast food. Trends, especially in the restaurant industry, tend to go out of style, but Fujiya will always be there and will always be the best! With a strong Japanese customer base, you can rest assured that Fujiya's menu and fresh fish are considered to be the next best thing to actually dining in Japan. If you're sitting in the Tatami room (aka Japanese dining room) you may actually feel like you're in Japan when your waitress comes to take your order and you see that she is wearing a kimono. Are they real kimonos?...Yes! Fujiya is also one of the few Japanese restaurants that still has it's waitresses wearing real kimono! While the casual diner may automatically order teriyaki of some sort, the brave and saavy can test their palate with the many more traditional items like donburi(try the katsudon) or nimono. I'm one of those who has been forever jaded to the sushi scene. Every sushi bar after Fujiya has high standards to meet.
To the person posting as Misawa: To answer your questions about the soup...Your soup was a different soup than your companions' and is not the house Fujiya soup. It is simply called the #1 soup. What your friend had- Shabu-shabu and didn't come with another soup, but a special broth to either pour into the main dish or dip the pieces of meat in. If you ask for tea in this place they will give you iced tea because we live in hot texas and it's the common drink of choice, but if you ask for ""ocha"" you will get hot green tea. If it's not hot enough for you, why not try asking them to make it hotter.

My second visit was much better.

I am the person who entered the previous review as McGrew and I have revisited FUJIYA. Unlike my previous visit which was made on a holiday weekend, this time I visited on a quiet Sunday noon. While the tea was the same as on my previous visit, the rest of the meal was much better. I had the Bento box sushi meal, while one of my companions had a sushi selection with one or two additional a la carte Sushi pieces. Both of these meals were quite tasty. My wife ordered a meat dish which she found to be very good and which she compared to the Korean dish ""Bulgogi."" Our fourth dining companion probably had chicken teriyaki, but what ever it was she, too, found it quite delicious. My conclusion is that I may have been slightly too harsh in my original review. As with any restaurant, some things are done better than others, and I think FUJIYA's forte is sushi. I'd recommend it.

Average at best

Good enough for what passes for Japanese food in Texas. Much of San Antonio's dining out consists of enless numbers of franchised eateries, so I wanted something privately owned. In this case, there appears to be no much difference between chain restaurants and a private one. If you're new down here, be aware that in Texas ""tea"" means iced tea, even in a Japanese restaurant, so be sure to specify hot tea if that's what you want. I ordered hot tea, but when it came it was luke warm, and by the end of the meal it was practically cold. The teapot was Japanese ""style"", but it was made of plastic.

While the service in Fujiya is friendly, the food I had was only so-so. In our party of three all of us ordered something different. Each meal came with the same type of soup, but because I had ordered the #1 meal (a varienty of different dishes), for some reason I got a much larger bowl of the soup than my companions received! Why a larger bowl of soup? By the time I finished the soup (a slighty salty onion and noodle soup) I was practically floating and had already lost my appetite for the entree!

The medley dish I had - terriyi beef, some chicken on a shish-stick, and some shrimp tempra - was ok, but all the meat tasted more or less identical, i.e., bland. The shrimp tempura was light and tasty, and if I got back to Fujiya again that's what I'll order. One of my companions had the smaller bowl of soup which I mentioned earlier. For an entree she ordered a ""healthy"" version of something that came in a broth with beef, mushrooms and cabbage - and to top it off, even that entree came with another bowl of soup! Our third diner had chicken terriyaki and said it was good.

I'll visit Fujiya again, but my expectations will be much lowered.
