This is a good American sushi place. Just average quality. They did not have monk fish liver or battera or more exotic sushi, more run of the mill rolls and some creative rolls but that is not what I exepect of a good sushi place.

Pros: rolls were good

Cons: variety of sushi is not good

Joy Sushi is basically a duplicate of Sushi House in Alameda. It has the same selection and everything. The place is fairly large for an Asian restaurant, but the service is a little slow. The lion king is by far my favorite at Sushi House, but it came out lukewarm at Joy Sushi. The sushi here is decent but not as good as the original. If you live around here or happen to be here, then the sushi is decent enough, but try the original.

This place has the most creative sushi rolls. Customer service was decent. I'd recommend to just pick a few rolls and share with the whole group.

After hearing about this resteraunt from some of the employees at The Estheticians, I HAD to check it out. The special rolls were enourmous, and some of the best I have ever had. The Joy Scallops are divine, the Snow White, Crunchy roll, I could go on and on and on about how great the food was! The service was incredible, the staff extremely pleasant, and did I mention the food was great? I only went the other day and I am already jonesing for more!

You definately NEED to check this place out!

Joy Sushi is the best sushi place in town - by a mile. Whenever my family decides to go out to get sushi, we always choose Joy's. Their sushi is attractive and elegant looking, very tasty, and the portions are unbeatable. And we always end up trying new rolls because there's so much to choose from. The menu is easy to read and very user friendly for the non-sushi lovers. Best sushi I've ever had!

Great and wonderful to eat here! Great value, nice service, and wonderful food!! Big portion and affordable. The Joy special sauce is great! Joy Scallop roll is a must try piece!! 2 people and 3 joy special rolls, u both will be done. Don't under estimate the size of the rolls!

Lighting:
The light is a bit too dim upstairs.

Location:
Since its location is not right at the heart of San Mateo 3rd street, not many people may notice this place. But when you try it ONE time, you can't stop yourself keep going again.

By the way, the owner (the guy with some white hair and wear glasses) is so kind that he always great you with a smile. I hope this place will be there forever and continuos to serve us the best quality of food and services.

we heard about joys through a friend about their sushi and hand rolls. we were not disappointed! their specialty sushi rolls were very good and fresh and the rolls were HUGE. i also ordered a bento box, but the terriyaki sauce wasn't very good- too thick and starchy, and the taste was off. i should have stuck to the sushi. good stuff.

PROS: amazing sushi rolls!
CONS: bad terriyaki sauce

Nestled on B Street between Capellini's and O'Neil's pub (same block as Jeffrey's Hamburgers) Joy Sushi is the latest resident in a restaurant space that's had a lot of turnover. They have a very good sushi bar, that specializes in exotic rolls but has rock solid nigiri offers. Very fresh fish with generous slices, they're not buying from the same seafood wholsaler as the other restaurants in town - their fish is of better quality. They have a very good sake selection as well.

PROS: Excellent sushi, fantastic sake selection, extensive and innovative sushi r
CONS: parking is a bit of challenge in this part of town; ambience is lacking
