I go there all the time with friends or with my boyfriend. The food is awesome. Just sometimes we had problems with waiters forgetting part of our order. But it doens't happen to often. I recommend always booking a table if you go there for...More

Voted by the Students for outstanding flavor and value and they weren't kidding. Extensive sushi menu with non sushi items to satisfy multiple appetites. Wait staff clearly enjoy working here. We'd come back for sure!

I knew about Joshu-Ya for many years, but in the distant past the reviews were not particularly positive. A few years ago Jason Kwon took over the restaurant as executive chef, local reviews became positive, and we began dining here. The menu has several sections,...More

In an area with lots of little places and the usual college fare, we wanted something a little fresher and different. We turned off telegraph by accident and found this little place. Fresh SUSHI - YAY! But they had something for everyone from a steak...More

An oasis just off of Telegraph, outdoor garden dining leading to a snug sushi harbor. An interesting combination of sushi and not-sushi (sliders, for example); try the unfiltered sake made in Berkeley. Kitchen and wait staff coordination needs some work, but have another sake, listen...More

FRESH fish, good atmosphere, great quality, attentive wait-staff. Stick to the Nigiri and sushi rolls, you won't be disappointed. Small, but thoughtful selection of sake by the bottle and reasonably priced. A very good dining experience in an area that is starving for decent restaurants.

This is a place I would come to again and again. Every time I have been here I have had something different and I have never been disappointed. Very fresh. Eclectic menu. Excellent service.

Our family had a wonderful meal at Joshua-Ya! The menu has so many options, but I have to say we had the best sushi in years in the Bay Area. Thick, fresh, delicious cuts of fish - not the standard rectangle tasteless sushi so prevalent...More
