Gyoza Ya is a Japanese restaurant specializes in Gyoza selections on their food menu. Diners are welcomed to an open concept dining area where the kitchen stadium is placed in the middle of the restaurant and guests are seated around to witness live cooking entertainment.
This is a nice place that offers unique and good gyozas! Red king crab gyoza, cheese gyoza, mentaiko-miso and others!! The place serves the gyoza two ways. Boiled gyoza and pan fried! Regardless of which, you will not be dissapointed! Gyozas were a little pricey so I suggest not coming on an empty stomach.

Zacbhl : Born and raised in Singapore. Foodie, blogger, critic.
They charge $4.80 for vegie gyoza but $5.80 for a cup of yuzu tea. When the customer first sat down, the waiter will offer yuzu or malt tea, before showing the menu. So I selected yuzu tea without expecting it to cost more than the gyoza!
Spent $19.30 for a plate of vegie gyoza, garlic fried rice and tea. Food quality average, nothing fantastic.
food was terrible. Bones bits in my gyoza. Oil for the nankotsu was bad - felt sick after eating. Rice was yellowish and dry. was seated at counter and kitchen staff was using offensive language. Upon check out, cashier asked how was everything, told him it was unpleasant. He asked for specifics, mentioned about the oil used, suspecting it's old, his reply was "cannot be". So why bother asking for feedback. So didn't bother explaining further.

Gyoza-Ya, the store which has taken over Charlie & Co. for a few months. There is always a steady queue and if you do not really want to wait and do not mind the slight oil and smoke as the kitchen is in close proximity, then sit by the bar. You can see the chefs working in full view, and see how your gyozas made, partially by two big machines.
Apart from quite a few interesting kinds of gyozas, they do not have much selections of starch.
They use an iPad ordering system, which you can keep ordering if you feel that your meal portion is insufficient.
We ordered the Jya Jya Men as our stomach-filler, and thought it was a pretty 'labour-intensive' dish as the server has to come back and pour hot water and give you an egg as the third step. When there is a lot of people during dinner time, completing this last step can be pretty daunting as you can spend a few minutes trying to get the server to come to you. Well, we thought the last step didn't really add much excitement to the dish, so it's really up to you to skip this step or not.
All of Gyozas we ordered, the Mentaiko is the must-try. Flame-grilled to the right cream texture, they melt in the mouth and taste extremely rich. The little spheres pop in your mouth- flavour burst. Though it's slightly more expensive, it's worth the try.
