See and Be Seen Here

Even among the McDonalds and the Dunkin Donuts and the other tourist-trap chains, the Chinatown area manages to maintain quite a bit of class on the western side of 7th St. Slightly unassuming on the outside, the inside of Oya is plush, chic and very on the Miami glamor side. It may look like a lounge and may certainly feel more like one once the happy hour time hits, but Oya serves great food as well. I'm a fan of their lunch and dinner pre-fixe specials, where for $19 (lunch) or $29 (dinner) you get a choice of an appetizer, entree and dessert. The food has an Asian influence with a lot of seafood dishes; think curried sea bass spring rolls and scallop pad thai. The portions aren't large but definitely satisfy - the sea bass spring rolls, for instance, are packed with sauteed vegetables and plenty of sea bass and are complimented with a small noodle salad and sweet soy glaze. Desserts are also single-portioned but also dense: their banana bread pudding really bursts with banana flavor and is sticky sweet; their molten chocolate cake is thick in both the cake and the soft chocolate in the middle. If you plan to go here to schmooze and mingle in your best finery, maybe avoid a full meal and just go sharezies on sushi (which I hear is excellent). But come for lunch when the wait is short and take advantage of their good, filling offerings.

Love the decor and atmosphere

Stopped by here for a glass of wine and to check it out. I have heard so much about it! The all black and white decor is amazing. Love the waterfall covering the kitchen and the white leather couches. Definitely an upscale place. Didn't get a chance to taste anything from the menu but I can't wait to go back!

The Posh Spice of Chinatown

I am in love with this place. Why? Because every part of the experience of dining at Oya is breathtaking. The decor features this all-white, super contemporary set up that plays with various lighting techniques and various fabric textures. If the atmosphere wasn't impressive enough, the food is also excellent.

First off, Oya offers $10 ""bag lunches"" to go. You can choose from sushi, salad, entrees, and they all come with desert. It's awesome. Second, I can't say enough how good their regular menu is. I love their sushi, and their scallops and tuna pizza are also great choices. THIRD! (yes there's yet another reason) Oya offers a prix-fixe lunch and dinner menu for $19 and $20 respectively, which is basically their restaurant week menu, year round.

Oh, and the service is great.
