Japan West offered one of the best sushi and sashimi meals I have had outside Vancouver or Honolulu. The decor is contemporary Japanese - one could almost imagine being in Tokyo. The raw fish is "fresh" - I put that in quotation marks because most fish served in North American Japanese restaurants has been frozen - but the quality is... More

We love the sushi here. The tempura shrimp and vegetables are very good as well. It's a very clean and nice restaurant. A favorite downtown.

Japan West is an incredible AUTHENTIC Japanese restaurant. If you are from Japan and want to visit a piece of home, this is the place to visit. Ito runs a wonderful restaurant. Ask for the Japanese white board.

Came here with two local friends during a visit. We had some great miso and salad and some great sushi for 3. This is as good as anything in DC, so don't let anyone tell you different. We sat at the sushi bar, that way you always get good service. How many people in Findlay are eating sushi? Plenty!

I love Japanese food, so I have to give a very good rating to this restaurant for the food and atmosphere but a very low rating for service. Since this restaurant is very close to my workplace, my colleagues and I would always come here for lunch. The sushi and beef teriyaki are my favorite choices. The only problem with... More

If you are a fan of fine Japanese food, this is the place to go. Well known for its outstanding sushi, you cannot go wrong with any item from the authentic Japanese menu. One potential negative: if they are busy - which can happen on the weekend - be prepared to wait. But it is well worth the wait, as... More

Every city should have a Japanese restaurant this good. At many Japanese restaurants the menu stops at sushi and bento boxes. Japan West has a broad menu of sushi, noodles, soups, grilled items and more, for workers at the many Japanese manufacturing companies nearby. Really good fresh sushi, but very traditional. Tempura and soba noodles were excellent. Service was pretty... More

I know I need to give Japan West another chance as much as I hear and read rave reviews but this visit was lackluster. Food was good, sushi was excellent but the service was terrible. We had to hail the waiter to order after literally 20 minutes. Rarely got refills when needed in drinks. Has to flag down the waiter... More

Recently went to Japan west for my birthday dinner with my family, they love sushi, not so much for me but wanted to try it. Had a great time, the waiter was very helpful in choosing some things I might like, they kept coming back to check on our food and if we needed anything. We kind of just kept... More

We had a great meal and it was very entertaining! Then you can shop in the mall if you want. And walk off all the food you ate!
