When we are in Annapolis, we make sure to go to Joss Cafe for dinner because we are assured of having great food and a good time for a reasonable price. The sushi, sashimi, and tempura are all excellent! Sit at the sushi bar for a good view of the chefs at work and enjoy the freshest of food. This... More

For the freshest sushi, with huge pieces, and wonderful service Joss is the ONLY place for sushi in Maryland. It has spoiled us from eating sushi elsewhere as nothing quite compares. Try the spring roll as an appetizer, you will not be disappointed. And then order sushi to your heart's delight. You won't go wrong. You can't!

Huge menu, good atmosphere, although can be cramped on weekends. Menu is high priced...2 handrolls and one samlon roll was $30. Drinks were good price.

This is my son's favorite place to dine when he comes in town. Very fresh fish...and good service. Atmosphere is cozy and lively....lots of tables. Clean and newly renovated. Plus, walking historic Annapolis with the Navy Midshipmen is the perfect setting for a lovely dinner.

My favorite restaurant, probably the best food in Annapolis and probably one of the best Asian restaurants in the Mid-Atlantic. We eat here to celebrate birthdays, anytime we have out of town visitors and we get take out frequently as well. My favorite items are the Crunchy Ebi roll, spicy scallop roll, Tempura dishes, Key West Treasures, Mabo Nasu. We... More

Sorry....This is the place in Annapolis for Sushi. Really fantastic and it's been that way for over a decade. Consistency. A good thing. But we've had some issues with service and attitude. Nice that you're a great restaurant but please cater to your guests. Long story short but we wanted more wasabi and our request was treated as if we... More

I haven't been here in a minute, but used to love coming here often with my godson who was then attending St. Mary's. The sushi was always fresh, filling and the service was always polite and efficient; especially if we happened to be planning to see a play or movie later the same evening. I visited last in the spring... More

I have moved an hour away from Annapolis and yet I still travel back for delicious food provided by Joss Sushi. It was always amazing! On occasion, there has been miscommunication between me and the server that I receive the wrong food but now I just point to it on the menu to avoid butchering the pronunciation and getting the...

The atmosphere is Japanese and as you enter...you feel it as the staff says...Irrashai...meaning welcome in Japanese. The food is off the hook. Fresh, efficiently prepared, and delivered to your table with a smile. The head of the prep crew is Peng.....and he works on the left side of the sushi bar...my preferred seat. I take my elderly father and... More
