Joshu-ya Brasserie was launched in 2011 by Rising Star Executive Chef Jason Kwon from NYC. Drawing from his diverse culinary background at Eat Savory and Couteaux Review, Kwon brings an interesting take on his seasonal menu based on Asian inspired California cuisine. The brasserie offers a seasonally driven menu, featuring the freshest sustainable seafood products available in the market. Notable dishes include our fluke crudo, day boat scallop carpaccio, provincial tartar of ahi, braised rabbit, black mussels with chorizo, crab and lobster porridge. In addition to our seasonal brasserie menu, we also offer a bar menu, which features maki, tempura, gyoza and other traditional japanese sharing dishes.
The food is actually pretty food. I went there a couple of times and the food never turned me off... But for the service that I get, I don't think going there is worth it. Once while I was there with a group of friends, our food not only arrived super super later but they also constantly forgot our orders... We ended up getting the check before a friend of mine even got her dinner.
I just do not like their services. I would go back there to give them another try but they constantly disappoint me. =( The same thing happened at my friend's birthday dinner.. Bleh.
I ordered sashimi over rice, that simple, and the waiter brought me chirashi. I did not eat it. The waiter asked me if something was wrong and I explained him his mistake. He told me that that was what I ordered and left. Then, the manager asked me if something was wrong. They could tell since I did not touch my wrong order. I explained to him the situation again. He told me to order something else. I did not order. I was pretty sure they were not going to charge me for the wrong plate but I did not order a new plate because but that time I was angry and disappointed. The waiter pretty much denied his error and left. He never came back to refill our water or tea. As I said I was pretty sure that they were not going to charge me the wrong order but they did. I did not even eat it but they charged me the wrong order. What would happen if I ordered a second plate? Maybe they would charged me both. The worst is that I lived across the street and I was a regular client. They knew me but they did not have the courtesy to either admit their error or give me the wrong plate at no cost. I stop going there.
They have the best sushi and at a very affordable price. Their bento is also worth its $13.50 price because of the large and variable entrees to choose from. If you love Japanese food Joshu-Ya is the place to be.
I love this place...I just moved up to the area from LA in Sep '06 and this is the best japanese restaurant that ive been to out here so far. The food is great and the atmosphere is cozy and fun. I always take my friends that visit from southern cali to this spot and they usually want to go back to Joshu-Yas one last time before they leave.
i have only been there for takeaway and people have been extremely friendly - i was also offered some tea while waiting. Only drawback that it takes a while if you cannot order before you get there. But the food is delicious and makes up for it.
The food is pretty much always good here. The service, however, can not be said to be the same. It's usually pretty slow, and they even sat us inside once, only to move us outside into the cold without us having a chance to disagree. (The heat lamps usually don't work outside). Luckily, the food is good.
This place is one of the cooler sushi restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. The set up is totally unique and refreshing. I’m tired of all the fancy restaurants that try too hard. Joshuyas is very homey and reminds me a lot of Monster Sushi in the East Village.
Last Thursday, my boyfriend and I went to joshuyas to celebrate our three year anniversary. It was packed inside, so we ended up getting seated outside, which was perfect because the weather was great. After being seated, we got drinks and a sashimi appetizer to start. Both were fantastic. I’d recommend the salmon for starters along side of Aladdin Cold Sake.
For our entrees, we both shared three rolls: The Lion King, Lucky Danny and the Zoolander. One word to describe them: YUMMY. My favorite was the Lucky Danny. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who wants simple tasty food.
It's an amazing Korean style fusion sushi place. I highly recommend ordering the ARK ROLL. It's not on the menu but it's a really delicious mega-roll with shrimp and vegetable tempura, lemon, and crab wrapped up in rice and sushi paper topped with raw salmon. Absolutely heavenly!
