From what I've tried, I like the udon at Joshu-Ya the most. The portion is huge and they definitely don't skimp on the tempura. Their bento box isn't anything special and their rolls aren't the best. I only go for their udon.

I'm used to really good Japanese food so J-food in Berkeley doesn't really excite me. This place doesn't do much to help that. Quality is not so great and they put a lot of sauces on their rolls. Other people seem to like it a lot, but for me it's a pretty much do it well or go home kinda story.

I like Joshu-ya because it's closeby to campus, and it is a good sit-down restaurant, or one where you can order off a menu and be served rather than going to somewhere and just ordering food from the counter. The food is priced like any other Japanese restaurant, and the interior of Joshu-ya is on the nicer side. This is one of the better Japanese restaurants near UC Berkeley.

I simply love the food at Joshu Ya. The sushi rolls are slightly more expensive but they have the best tasting sushi and some of the freshest fish you can find in town. The place is pretty small so it maybe be difficult to get seating at night. I highly recommend the Lion King Rolls (baked salmon on top of a California Roll) or the Delicious Roll (spicy tuna roll with fresh tuna sashimi on top) YUM!) Service is friendly and fast.

If you're looking for a casual evening-out, this is a great place to go. The sushi is fresh and delicious and the value, while not dirt cheap, is by no means expensive. We found the dining room relatively full on Sunday night and the waiters rather curt as they rushed about trying to please everyone. Barring that, it was a wonderful place. Joshu-ya's is a little cramped and the music out-of-place, but it's relaxed and confortable. Order the meal deals for two--great value and great food.

Food here is incredible, one of the best Japanese restaurants in Berkeley. The fish here is always fresh and the environment warm and cozy. The chef is amazing and the waiters are very friendly. Only downside is the long wait on Friday nights, but you can RSVP ahead of time.

Definitely a great to make a regular.
