I wouldn't rate this as excellent as others have - the Goma Shoyu ramen was tasty but skimpy on the pork... read more

Honshu has always been the bar we measure all other sushi restaurants against. Now it's even better in its new location. Still the same fresh sushi, but in a new environment complete with a bar. The Honshu Roll and Godzilla are favorites, but I've never had one at Honshu that I didn't like.

It is to be hoped that no more than I suffered this troubled stomach after lunch.If you work with raw fish sushi-sashimi, you have to be careful. Japan boast the name of the restaurant but the staff has other origins, like to believe that this could not happened with Japanese sushi chefs.This applies not only to present stylish sushi pieces...

Somehow after living in jc for a year I had never heard of this place. The other night the hubby and I were craving sushi and I thought I'd just look around for a different spot than our regulars. Found Honshu and thought we would check it out because of great reviews. We were not disappointed, the sushi was the... More

The server made a minor mistake with our order. We casually mentioned it to the server. The manager came over to apologize. They sent the bartender to give us a drink to apologize and then corrected the order. Wow - we feel totally thankful. These people care about their customers. Thank you!

We came late, just before closing and they accommodated us very nicely. The mango on the white pearl roll was wonderful. The only downside was the tap water was heavily chlorinated and was also apparent in the tea.
