“Best Sushi Bar in Maryland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Joss is amazing. I've been here 30 plus times, since I moved to Annapolis. I have been all over the country traveling, but when I go to a new place,I always compare it to my gold standard Joss. The Sushi Scallop Roll is fantastic. I also love the sashimi platters that are the chefs choice! Since expanding this past year, seating is easier to come by, but plan ahead!

“Best Sushi in Annapolis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I ate here during the Sailboat show in October. The place was packed which was a good sign. Renovations are underway and the hanging plastic and holes in the ceiling detracted from the atmosphere. The food however did not dissapoint. We had a Sushi Sashimi combo which was excellent. Shared a couple of Sashimi appetizers with deep fried sweet shrimp heads which were excellent. Also had a specialty roll, also excellent. The place looks like it is constantly busy so the fish is super fresh. Our server was excellent and our meals and drinks came out fast even with the restaurant full. Will be back.

“Great sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Went here with colleagues and had some amazing rolls. The tuna tataki was unique (only so-so), but everything else was quite good. We had the Snow Beauty sake too which I would recommend to others as an easy-drinking sake (as far as sake goes!). It was a bit expensive, but all good sushi places are.

“Overrpiced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Good quality, long long wait, over priced for sushi at this level and location. Atmosphere is poor, crowded and noisy.

“Hidden Treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

A small street door opens to a very cool cave of a sushi bar! Wow, amazing miso with lobster soup and a variety of rolls and menu items that will be sure to please. Nice beer and wine list, great place for conversation, and attentive but not clingy staff. Loved it!
