I have been to this restaurant three times. The first two times I had never eaten the raw fish sushi, only the vegetarian sushi, which was great here. The first two times I also got the shrimp terriyaki, which was excellent. I hadn't been there in a couple years - I am now a loyal fan of Tsunami, up the street. Someone recently raved about the sushi at Joss's and said that it was better than Tsunami, so my friend (also a Tsunami regular) and I decided to give it a try now that I eat the raw fish sushi. We were greatly disappointed. First of all, the restaurant is very small and crammed and does not take reservations. We were there around 8 on a Friday night, so we waited outside for about 45 minutes. The appetizer we got was fantastic - it was an avocado with raw tuna inside, drizzled with a creamy wasabi sauce. We ordered four sushi rolls - spicy tuna, one with crab, one with smoked salmon, and a shrimp tempura. All the rolls were bland except the one with smoked salmon - EVEN THE SPICY TUNA roll! We had to ask for a side of the creamy wasabi sauce we enjoyed from the appetizer so that we could dip all the rolls in it b/c they were SO bland. We put ginger on all of them, which we typically do not do. The only one I enjoyed was the one with smoked tuna, which had a marbelized wrap - that looked pretty cool and tasted okay compared to the rest. I think the flavor of the smoked salmon salvaged it. We were so disappointed. Needless to say if we're going to Annapolis for sushi, we will not be straying from Tsunami.
