Noodle bowls, soups, breads. A lot of it is Organic/Local ingredients. Kind of a small place. It reminds me of going to Subway. Although they're real nice explaining how it works to newbies, everyone else seems to know the drill. There's signs on the wall as you walk in telling you your options. You pick up and clean up.

A bowl of their soup is a healthy, filing meal. Japhy's has gluten free and vegetarian options. They have a few different soup offerings each day, as well as the hot and cold noodle bowls which are always available. My preference is for the daily specials, but I know people who love the noodle bowls so you wont go wrong... More

I live in Eureka & I bring my friends here for a terrific taste experience. The food is very flavorful & always extremely fresh. I've been eating here for several years, & whether in house or to go, I have never had a bad experience, or even a mediocre experience. The quality is always the same --- excellent. The atmosphere...

Japhy's is exactly the kind of restaurant I love to find! Wonderful curries, rice and lentils, soups and stews with new options daily. The staff is helpful and friendly. Don't forget bread with that soup! The bread is fresh and amazing. The food is fresh and interesting with great spices and nice combinations of ingredients. I'm tired of restaurant menus... More

Just across the freeway from HSU campus, I recently ate lunch here four days in a row, it was so good. The Thai coconut curry chicken (had 3 times) was to die for. Great food, great prices, very pleasant staff, quick service, and quiet!! No horrible music!! People of all ages gather here, mostly locals. A relaxing, nourishing place to... More

Id go there more often if they accepted cards. Their white curry is delicious but I dont feel like its worth going out if my way to get. I dont usually plan when I go out to eat and dont want to waste the gas to get cash if im already near japhys. Id go somewhere else at that point.

Japhy's has the unique ambiance of a student hangout/soup kitchen but the food is absolutely incredible. They offer soups and noodle bowls among other interesting dishes. Their red curry chicken soup is by far the more popular and is heaven every time we have it! They serve it with the most amazing sour dough bread or corn bread, your choice.... More

Good wholesome soups, salads, and noodle dishes at a great price. Great deal for lunch or dinner - good quality food that always leaves me satisfied. I love this place. Only drawback is their hours pretty much follows the University schedule, so frequently closed, especially around holidays/vacations when they typically are closed for an extended period of time. I also... More

This is by no means a fancy place. Very laid back, un-matching tables and chairs, counter service only. What you do get is great food, an ever changing menu of delectable treats, and a low price point. I can live without the fancy when the food is amazing. The soups, stews, noodles, salads, there is nothing that is not amazing!!!

We were so eager to eat at this place but they don't take debit or credit cards so we couldn't. When people are traveling they don't usually carry cash so they are likely to lose more business in the future from card carrying folks.
