Had dinner here last week and really enjoyed it. It is located inside the mall and is very popular with families and also couples. If you love Garlic, this is the place for you! They have a special for two people which includes several garlic dishes and is very reasonably priced. Try the Garlic Steak, Garlic Pizza and salad. As... More

If you are looking for garlicky food with a lot of flavor than you have come to the right place. They have many vegetarian and vegan options as well:)

Had a great time at Garlic Jo's. Great food. The service wasn't what we would've hoped, but the food made up for it. The bacon spinach salad was amazing. And my husband loved his steak with minced garlic, garlic chips and a bulb of garlic on top. Definitely a place for garlic lovers!!

In the "pro" side Garlic Joe's is conveniently located and has great service. The food is just ok and the cost is pretty high for what you get. I am all for garlic, but I didn't think the food was very well seasoned in general. Dumping heaping spoonfuls of garlic on various foods is not the same as seasoning food... More

The restaurant looks much lighter and jollier than the slightly daunting and dark display at the front. The staff are friendly, and the food (I tried the garlic steak) was served with a complimentary side of white rice and a miso soup. I would definitely like to go again to try another dish.

Went there for dinner last week with 2 adults and 2 kids. Good size portions and a surprisingly large choice, all with a garlic influence of course. Our waiter, Hayato Sato was very good and accommodating of a couple of menu changes we made to cater for a vegetarian. All in all a unique experience when in Yokohama.

This is a restaurant that is kind of hard to get to as the escalators around here are pretty funky. Make sure to ask the Information desk to find out how to get here or else you will be going up and down the same escalator over and over again. LOL Now, as for the food, it's garlic. What can...

I always return to this restaurant, every time I visit Yokohama - 4 time so far! The basic premise is pretty simple - I would recommend that you probably give it a miss if you are not fond of garlic. As a starter, I would strongly recommend the octopus - steamed and marinated in a piquant, garlicky sauce that is... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the whole Yokohama!!! I go there every few weeks. The octopus is delicious, the fried rice great, and the steak superb!!! If I could have my own private restaurant it would be this one!!!
