Joy Sushi!

Sophia says: Tonight we went to Joy Sushi! It is open for lunch and dinner. This restaurant serves Japanese food. You can eat here if you are vegetarian because they have vegetarian bento boxes and vegetarian rolls. When we got there, the waiter greeted us immediately and led us to a  nice table. The restaurant is small and very clean. They have a kids menu but I ordered the salmon bento box with california rolls off the adult menu and shared it with my brother. The bento box came with salad and miso soup. While we were waiting the waiter brought us complimentary edamame. We came early and were the only ones there but some other people were getting take out. Our food came nice and fast. The salmon was very tender and it had just the right amount of sauce. The waitstaff was very friendly our waiter kept checking on us. Also the bathroom was very clean.  When we were almost done, some more people came for dinner. I would definitely come back because of the good food and great service.

Josh says: Tonight we went to Joy Sushi for dinner. When we got there the waiter came right to us and gave us a seat. I shared the salmon bento box with my sister because it was so big. I liked everything but especially the miso soup and the broccoli tempura and the carrots and the rice. I did not like the salad so I gave it to my mom. The service was really fast and the chef was really nice and talked to me. The restaurant is clean but small. I would come back because it's just a nice place.

Jodie says:  I really liked Joy Sushi. We have been wanting to go here since they opened a little over a year ago. They are busier at lunchtime because they are located near a lot of office complexes and they do more take-out and catering for dinner.  Our waiter was wonderful and we had excellent service. I ordered the vegetarian mix roll which has asparagus, cucumber, sweet potato and squash. It was really good! The whole staff was friendly and accommodating.  I would recommend Joy Sushi to anyone.

4 Ladybugs!


  1. Thanks for letting me know about the vegetarian sushi and bento boxes! Also (just about) everybody loves broccoli tempura, even if they don't like broccoli. Because deep frying stuff is generally awesome. Great review and great pics. I have a Paul Frank t-shirt similar to Sophia's that I LOVE. There's just something amazing about that little monkey!

  2. Our family lives sushi! Recently turned vegetarian so we will be sure to try out Joy sushi during our next outing. Miyake is a place I used to visit with my friend but all
    I recall having there were the saki-bombers.

  3. I've never tried Joy Sushi but next time I'm in Mountain View, I will definitely try it out!
