While visiting Berkeley, I ventured out one night to find this vegan Japanese restaurant I'd heard about. As I walked down the street, I saw a long line of people waiting to get into a tiny restaurant. I smugly walked past, looking for what I supposed would be an unpopular hole-in-the-wall. Imagine my horror when I realized that the huge line lead right to the restaurant I'd been looking for.
Cha-Ya was worth the long wait in line. In fact, it was worth the long wait in line three nights out of seven I spent in Berkeley. The service was great, the food was outstanding, and everything was clearly labeled as vegan. You simply can't ask for more (except perhaps a shorter line!).
