“What a terrific, eclectic menu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We were wandering down Telegraph looking for a place to eat and saw this restaurant. It's astounding. Find another restaurant that serves sushi and foie gras and sliders and can pull it all off. We ate mostly sushi and it was divine. Perfect if one in your party doesnt like sushi. Lunch was quite reasonable. The patio was gorgeous on a sunny day and the service was superb. They accommodated a shellfish allergy even in a bento box!

“Excellent Fusion Restaurant with Interesting Sushi + Tapas Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Not sure how to describe this sushi-meets -tapas fusion restaurant but everything we had was imaginative, super-fresh and delicious. Complemetary miso soup, melt-in-the-mouth sashimi at a very reasonable price(chef's choice of course), a delightful tapas appetizer (the waiter-recommended "Seared Day-boat Scallops"), two excellent Maki rolls and steamed rice made up a meal for two for a very reasonable $70 including two beers.

“Fabulous Sushi, A Wonderful Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Did not expect to find such fresh, incredible sushi in Berkeley, especially so close to campus (and we've been spoiled by our terrific favorite sushi places here in Los Angeles), but Joshu-Ya is an absolute treasure! Whenever we visit our daughter at Cal it will be on the must-go list. Prices are very reasonable and the quality is excellent. We ate there twice in one day. Truly delicious. Cannot wait to eat there again.

“A respite off the Beaten path of Telegraph”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great sushi, friendly staff and sushi chefs, reasonably priced fare in a comfortable environment about a half block off of the perennial craziness of Telegraph Avenue.
