695 Grand Ave. St. Paul, MN 55105 | Macalester/Groveland | 651-292-0444

Location Description:

Is there anywhere better to dine with boys of a certain age than at a teppan-yaki table? Knives flash, smoke wafts, meats sizzle, knives flash some more--it's as gratifying as an Evel Knievel jump. Saji-Ya is a fine place for teppan yaki, not least because of the lively bar and the fact that you can get sushi delivered right up to your tables, which are elevated above the rest of the restaurant. The attractive, snaking sushi bar is another fine place to while away the evening, though admittedly you can't order down some flashing knives for your amusement.
