Always good!

Japanika means good Japanese food all the time. The place is nice, I had dinner at the bar. Food is well done and its quality looks to be very good. Remember to book a table otherwise chances are high you will have to queue up on the waiting list!

We ate there and had terrible service. Other than that the price is very reasonable, and the sushi is above average.

A great restaurant with a vibrant atmosphere and a good location. I had the satay chicken which was delicious, and my family loved their sushi. portions were quite big. it was a nice change for us after a few bad restaurants. would definitely go back!

This is fone of the location of this Japanese fast food chain. Well known for the fresh, tasty and very reasonably priced food and thus quite crowded at all times.

Four of us ate at Japanika Givatayim tonight. Two of us received our food and only 30 minutes later the other two received food. After complaining twice they finally brought it. Also I ordered a starter dish and they brought me the same thing, but larger, and charged me for the larger dish. Even the bill took 30 minutes to... More

I love the option to make your own sushi - and I use it every time I visit the restaurant. Allows you to have exactly what you want. I don't particularly like their special rolls as I am not a big fan of chives in sushi. :) The ingredients are prepared and assembled well and the plating is pleasant to... More

We had to combos of freshly made sushi. All pieces were very tasty. The Miso Soup however had to much seaweed, tofu and other stuff. You could hardly taste the miso taste.

Ate there in April 2014 Sushi was OK, though very expansive for such small rolls. The thing that really left a bad taste in my mouth was leaving the restaurant and seeing Sushi packed for delivery on the sidewalk outside!! Yes, they kept the "take away" paper bags outside the restaurant on the sidewalk! Not in a box, not in... More
