“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

The food was amazing except one dish. We complained, and with no argument the manager wiped it off our bill. Everything else was delicious and the customer service, speed and generally everything is brilliant.

“A change from your usual lunch..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We had just come over from from the New Forest in Hampshire for a few hours , shopping and lunch . We luckily came across Hojo as we were hungry and looking for somewhere a bit different with tasty food .. and we were not disappointed ! Fabulous lunches , we had a club sandwich with the most tender chicken and tasty bacon you could want , chorizo chick pea and squid salad and shredded apple , Miso soup and the classical sushi dish .. all beautifully presented and generously portioned ..and reasonably priced too . Will definitely visit again , hope the waiter may be a tad more cheerful next time though ! !

“Trendy restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Very attentive staff. Well presented food. We tried some Sushi. The waiter helped us out by suggesting what to have. I loved it my friend wasn't so sure. However, they have 'normal' food also. It was very busy mid week, says to me that is popular.

“Something different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

The Taster Menu is very good - tasty, unusual, satisfying, but not too much. Staff very friendly and well-informed. It is a real pleasure to try something different and we always enjoy our time there.

“Impeccable food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Finally we take a break from our week's Guernsey Activity Holiday: a Half Marathon, a Special Forces level assault course programme, coastal power walks and restorative meditation. To rest up, celebrate our last evening and 43rd wedding anniversary we visit HoJo's with our family (Guernsey Chapter) for Japanese food.

We had popcorn, scallops, deep fried chicken, baked aubergine, sushi, sashimi, lamb cutlets with broad beans, soba noodles, pac choi with bean sprouts, seared sirloin of beef and steamed rice, accompanied by a delightful single grape Malbec. For dessert? A superb chocolate pot with an espresso.

The service was unobtrusive, sensitive, anticipatory and of the highest order. The food was sublime. The conversation? Lively, attentive, entertaining, funny, relevant and instructive. Forty-three years on we have built a family: three sons with three intelligent, attractive partners and four equally delightful grandchildren between them. HoJo's and all it had to offer more than lived up to the occasion. If I absolutely had to point out a shortcoming? The ratio of pac choi to bean sprouts should be revisited - double the pac choi and halve the bean sprouts, perhaps?
