We ordered the bento for the value and we were satisfied with what we got. The sushi was fresh, we ordered salmon, yellow fin tuna and tuna. We felt the serving was small for the price but I guess Japanese food is always expensive. Service is ok, we have no complaints about it.

This used to be our go to sushi place. We went or ordered from them for 10 years, we have paid this restaurant thousands of dollars. A few years ago, they significantly cheapened their sashimi platters while increasing the price. We put up with the change. Now, they have cut their fish piece size by another 50%. Worse, the management... More

Very good sushi with different options. I tried the baked lobster sushi, the flavor is very good but you loose the perspective of eating sushi.

My colleagues and I, we're in town looking for a descent spot to get a bite. We popped in the Joy of Sushi and my word we were not disappointed. Their rolls were numerous and adventurous, which left the mouth salivating after every single piece. Very reasonable priced and great value for your money. Worth the visit!!!

Went on a Saturday night and there was a line out the door. After eating there I understand why. Their bento box includes soup, salad, rice, tempura plus two entrees of your choice. The food was great with quality ingredients. Plus as busy as our server was, he was incredibly pleasant and attentive. Definitely worth a visit!

While in San Mateo for a concert, we asked a friend if he would recommend a good sushi restaurant ... Joy Sushi was his recommendation, and we're glad it was. It's nothing fancy, but obviously, it's a local favorite. Attentative wait staff, order was brought in a timely manner, soup was delicious, salad was fresh, and sushi was very good.

Bento box, spider roll, tekka maki, scallop roll and vegetable sukiyaki. All come with miso soup, salad and edamame. Great service. Food was good, but not terrific. Ups and downs with this restaurant for us, but it is always packed and food is never bad. We always return.

We arrived at Joy Sushi late in the evening about 30 minutes prior to closing. We were greeted quickly and seated at a nice table upstairs. Service began quickly with drinks and followed by order taking. We opted for the Lava Roll as an appetizer. This selection did not disappoint and was as aesthetically pleasing as delicious and spicy.

This is the place to go if you want large interesting rolls. They have a whole part of the menu devoted to their rolls. We love any of the baked rolls with the special sauce especially the Joy Scallop dish.
