This is my son's favorite place to dine when he comes in town. Very fresh fish...and good service. Atmosphere is cozy and lively....lots of tables. Clean and newly renovated. Plus, walking historic Annapolis with the Navy Midshipmen is the perfect setting for a lovely dinner.

My favorite restaurant, probably the best food in Annapolis and probably one of the best Asian restaurants in the Mid-Atlantic. We eat here to celebrate birthdays, anytime we have out of town visitors and we get take out frequently as well. My favorite items are the Crunchy Ebi roll, spicy scallop roll, Tempura dishes, Key West Treasures, Mabo Nasu. We... More

Sorry....This is the place in Annapolis for Sushi. Really fantastic and it's been that way for over a decade. Consistency. A good thing. But we've had some issues with service and attitude. Nice that you're a great restaurant but please cater to your guests. Long story short but we wanted more wasabi and our request was treated as if we... More

I haven't been here in a minute, but used to love coming here often with my godson who was then attending St. Mary's. The sushi was always fresh, filling and the service was always polite and efficient; especially if we happened to be planning to see a play or movie later the same evening. I visited last in the spring... More

I have moved an hour away from Annapolis and yet I still travel back for delicious food provided by Joss Sushi. It was always amazing! On occasion, there has been miscommunication between me and the server that I receive the wrong food but now I just point to it on the menu to avoid butchering the pronunciation and getting the...

The atmosphere is Japanese and as you enter...you feel it as the staff says...Irrashai...meaning welcome in Japanese. The food is off the hook. Fresh, efficiently prepared, and delivered to your table with a smile. The head of the prep crew is Peng.....and he works on the left side of the sushi bar...my preferred seat. I take my elderly father and... More

I love Japanese food. Period. Joss has that. Great, beautiful, tasty Japanese food. The twist is that there are american waitresses asking you this-that-and-the-other and wishing you the eternal 'nice day' ... But .... the Food, Is, Great.

Cucumber roll. They don't have Miller lite, they did have Bud Light and Mich Lite but where out of it. U can sit at the Sushi making bar... More

Another story that starts with a good server followed by a so-so appetizer then killed by the entree. The dumplings were the only thing that wasn't bad. Not great. Barely good. But at least edible. The spring rolls were smothered in some type of mayonnaise-based sauce. When you think asian, you always think Miracle Whip, right? It was the only... More

I've been here zillions of times. I went with a colleague from out of town and ordered to take out. An hour later, they lied and said it was a little longer. Another ½ an hour...they said, almost ready..they then admitted they'd lost the order. No apology at all. Rude. I was astonished and terribly embarrassed. I hesitated to write... More
