Great noodle bowls and salads

Stopped in for dinner with the family while visiting Bodega Bay to eat something other than fish and chips and other fried foods. Exactly what we had hoped to find. Delicious fresh salads and noodle bowls with exceptional flavor.

Our group of four each chose a different soup and were very pleased with their selection. I highly recommend when you are in Arcata to stop in.

I had a Thai curry over rice. It was spicy but REALLY good. My friend, a vegan, ordered soup and was also given rice. It was nice to eat in our rented home. I wish I'd had time to explore more options here.

Japhy's is a wonderful place to go for lunch with a friend. There is often a long line, but it might take you a while to figure out which delicious soup or noodle bowl you want. There are specials every day. I love the udon noodles with a few pieces of pork. One friend always gets a curry. I had... More

If you want a healthy meal for a reasonable price, Japhy's is the best restaurant in Humboldt County. It is short on ambiance but if the food and the price are your priorities, you cannot beat it.

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. Caters... More

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
