Kaya Sushi came highly recommended to me by a number of people in Las Vegas. So last week, Aaron Shapiro from Aaron’s Worldwide Adventures , and I met at Kaya, to well, meet. Meet and gnosh down some delicious sushi!
Kaya has the most outrageous names for sushi I have ever seen. Besides the traditional rolls, they have crazy specialty rolls like The Shrek, Crazy Orgasm Roll, Monkey Brains, Who is my dad?, and Mistake Roll. I fell in love with the food just for the names alone.
And this is all you can eat! For one super reasonable price, you can order anything off the menu you wish. they also offer half rolls, which we did plenty of, so you can sample a wide array of items. Their appetizers are small portions as well, so you don’t have to worry about ordering one, then filling up on that before you get to the sushi.
Which is awesome. Because there are a few places in Vegas known for doubling up on the rice and giving you huge appetizer portions.
Nope, Kaya knows you are there for the sushi and doesn’t pump their sushi full of filler items. Their ingredients are super fresh and combined in really creative ways.
And don’t forget the deserts. They have things like Strawberry Mochi Ice cream (ice cream inside of a gelatinous thingy. Not sure what it is exactly, but Andrew tells me it is good.)
I, personally, am a girl, and went for the cheesecake sampler.
Kaya is located on Spring Mountain Road, just west of Las Vegas Blvd. On the corner of Spring Mountain and Arville. It is a 5 minute drive from the Strip, or take the 203 bus down Spring Mountain.
