Very popular with locals, for good reason. A great little authentic sushi place, with lots of atmosphere. Highly recommended for locals. For tourists... not sure why you'd want to eat sushi in Ireland, but you'll enjoy it if you do :)

I have been dining in Kappa Ya since the day it opened. The food is out of this world, and is now a default lunchtime treat for the whole family. Each dish is cooked to order, so is as fresh as fresh can be
