This is a must for when we visit Humbolt county. We have been coming to Japhy's for about 14 years and always make it a point to eat at least once at this great restaurant.

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

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
