Hadn't been there in two+ months, and we loved going there, nice sushi for a good price and great friendly service. Today - prices almost 3 dollars more for the lunch special and the maki was so poorly rolled. Smaller pieces for everything and more expensive. If I am going to pay higher price for Sushi, I am going to own favorite place since it is only 3 dollars more. No more Lunch for us at Java Sushi
Java Sushi's Spicy udon. They are using Korean instant noodle called Shin noodle to cook Spicy Udon and charge us $7.75. They rip you off! You can buy the Shin noodle at Asian supermarket $1.00 buck!
They are not real Japanese. They are Korean! That is why they said Spicy Udon. Real Japanese food does not have spicy udon! Wherever you go Japanese restaurant and they have spicy Udon type of soup, the owners are Korean.
They are really bad and cheater!
The taste is not bad. But you really don't get what you pay for. Its the smallest pieces of sushi on the planet, and for the price you pay it's outrageous. If you really want good sushi go to TGI sushi in Newark Ca.. The prices are the same and the sushi pieces are lovely in portions. At least you get what you pay for.
Worst place I've been in years, don't go, you will be wasting time and money! I was disgusted with the food and staff here! The food portions were meager, not fresh and limited on selection (edamames I ordered tasted moldy). Surprisingly in this economy and restaurants struggling to keep their doors open, when I mentioned to the waitress my concerns, she got an attitude with me! I ate most of it because I was starving, but bracing for food poisoning. The local Health Dept. should take a peek in their kitchen!
Review in 2007 - I work around the corner and wondered by my company with 50+ employees you never see a single person from my company there. They drive down to Mt. View or Sunnyvale Town Center for Japanese. After eating there a few times I see why. I think the owner needs a specialist to come in and help redesign their menu. They should be set up more options of choosing a basic meal plan and then you pick the extras you want. Right now there menu does not inspire and there is no flexibility in it.
Positives? Location and the staff is nice.
REVIEW IN 2008 -
I went back and they have improved their menu. Comparing prices to the Sushi place on Maude and other places in this area - their prices are the same as the other places.
Positives still have a nice staff.
I upgraded my previous review from 2 to 4 stars
Java sushi is pretty bad. I hate writing bad reviews but when my coworkers don't finish what they order, that really confirms how awful it is.
The rolls were bland. Fish was getting brown. the waitress was nice, but the food needs some work. I like to support local businesses, but its tough when they don't give more effort.
Restaurant was very close to my office, and the price was great for a casual business lunch. I don't think the sushi was incredibly fresh, but it was of good flavor and aroma (mostly the texture was off). Great miso soup and outstanding green tea. We had a mixture of rolls and sashimi, I think we were all more impressed by the rolls.
I'll definately go again for the sake of variety. Wouldn't go out of my way, but I highly recommend it if you're in the neighborhood.
