“Fresh and plentiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Valentine's day night, seating without a wait, excellent dinner. Enormous seaweed salad with a nice side of spicy sauce. The spicy tuna and salmon rolls had large pieces of tuna and salmon in and on them. The sashimi was fresh, large pieces. It's good to see that this place has gotten it back together again, management changes in the past were not in its favor but it's returned to being one of, if not the best sushi places in Woodbridge. The prices have gone up significantly in the past few years, but if you want the best, it's worth it.

“Get great sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

As a previous person said, it does look like a bit of a dive inside, but it seems decently clean and the sushi is incredible. Best California roll I've had and the miso soup is amazing - and i'm usually not one for miso soup. I don't know if it's still on the menu but I liked the lunchbox meal that had tempura, teriyaki and a California roll.

“This place can be hit or miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Sometimes, the sushi is fantastic and sometimes it isn't. But who ever wants bad sushi? The cooked meals are a better deal as are the rolls. I do love the tempura and their bento boxes (they call them Janko boxes) are more than generous. The rice bowls are also descent. But they are a bit on the pricey side and their food is more toward the Korean than the Japanese. But you should give them a try because you probably won't find better in the area without driving all the way to the corner of Telegraph and Beuhlah.

“Delightful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Jangko doesn't look like much from the outside, just another strip mall place to get something not on a bun.
Inside is another story! It's a very peaceful and friendly place with outstanding food for a good price. The basic teriyaki meal included the following:
A generous salad with great ginger dressing
Pickeled cucumbers in a "kimchi" like sauce
The teriyaki itself was three large skewers of very tender beef, served on a sizling platter of cabage and other greens with carrots
Dessert was like a frozen tiramisu.
The "small" sake was larger than regular at most places I've been.

The total bill was just over $20!

Bottom line: Don't let outside appearances fool you - if you like Japanese food and you're in Woodbridge don't miss this opportunity.

“Worth the stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

At first entry I was not impressed. But stay and love! Green tea, nice. Sushi was unusual but very tasty. Appetizer and dessert on the house, lovely help and customers too.
