“If you like Sushi you will Love this place”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

As soon as you walk in the door you are welcomed with just about the whole staff. They are very friendly from begining to the end.Ever time I have been there they always bring me out a dish on the house and I eat alot and I have not left there hungry.And they do have two private rooms for small partys.

“Mmmmm J&Y”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I have been to sushi restaurants all over the country, and can say comfortably, that my most favorite sushi restaurant is right here in my back yard. I'm surprised to see even 1 bad review. I'm thinking that has to be an anomoly as every experience we have had here has been top notch. HIGHLY recommend

“Terrific and Affordable”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Our favorite Sushi restaurant in the area. BYOB and they are happy to help you with your wine or other beverages. Awesome FAST, friendly service. Waves of sushi to your delight and a smattering of other Japanese dishes available. Half the cost with BYOB and great prices than any other popular sushi restaurants.
You must check it out.

“Excellent sushi for the price”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Our friends and I never pass up the opportunity to have sushi at J&Y. While it looks like a tiny hole in the wall next to the yarn shop, it has excellent sushi chefs who will provide you with a lot of deliciousness. The decor is very plain, with some Japanese/Asian knick-knacks about, but no one is there for the sights.

Once you sit, you are presented with a large menu full of Asian cuisine including lots of diverse sushi rolls. There are also specials, usually more sushi rolls, available as well. A number of them have been somewhat Americanized with sauces, deep frying, etc, but there are plenty of simple rice, seafood, and seaweed rolls to choose from. After you pass on your requests to the attentive staff, they will usually come back with surprise dish of some sort that is on the house. We have tried many different items this way, some of which have even worked their way into our permanent rotation.

After trying something new, the eventual parade of sushi begins and we always fall upon the feast like ravenous beasts. Everything is cooked (or not) to perfection and the textures, tastes, and presentation are always excellent. While we have all had rolls we did not like on occasion, they were personal dislikes of some particular ingredient (like eel) and not an issue with the restaurant's preparation.

After you finish your meal, particularly if you are in for dinner, the waitstaff will often bring around a small slice of dessert, again on the house. It is some combo of pie and cheesecake and quite yummy. When the bill comes you would expect to pay close to $150 in the Baltimore area for 4 people eating 10 rolls (plus sodas, soups, and tea) but in Eldersburg the bill is usually around $100 for that. The value can't be beat on what is a very tasty dinner or lunch.

“Horrible!!!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

When this joint opened, we thought "Nice! A good Sushi place in the area!". My husband rushed out to get us some Sushi for the Evening. First.....it cost us WAY too much for what we got.....bad quality fish! Tasted like it was made the day before and didn't even smell good! We will never go back. Go to Tony's Japanese Restaurant for better Sushi in the area!
