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.

Makes me happy everytime. Not fancy, but the food is good and reasonable. Is that enough characters?

Touring Humboldt State U. with my son, we wanted to check out local food that he'll be eating when he gets tired of the meal plan at school. This was right up his alley. Great prices and very tasty. The menu looks small, but there are so many different combinations you can create there's almost endless variety. The place was... More
