Excellent lunch sushi rolls were fresh, tasty, reasonably priced, about $14 for 15 medium-sized rolls. Wonderful service, too. I plan to go back if I'm ever in the area.

Went recently with a coworker. Ordered their speciality rolls kiss of death and kiss of fire. Both were ok but not memorable. We also had some other nigiri sushi which was similar. Would return for a sushi fix but that’s about it Passable but unremarkable.

This place can't be beat. We enjoyed vegetable dumplings, a yellowtail roll and salmon teriyaki. The service is excellent and the prices are fair. This is the best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to

Friendly and excellent sushi place. Don’t be fooled by the strip mall exterior. Really good rolls, and we had a fantastic striped jack special

Description
A fresh perspective on traditional Japanese cuisine – available for takeout and dine-in. Formerly Bluefin2, WOOJUNG is excited to finally open an establishment that reflects the Kim family dining experience. By providing a comfortable and homey atmosphere while presenting the finest Japanese cuisine, WOOJUNG is back with a new wind under its wings. As always, one can also find creative twists on traditional sushi plates as well. WOOJUNG is a family-run operation, run by Thomas and Matilda. You will likely meet them when dining in our hole-in-the-wall restaurant for a Kim Family experience. Thomas, with his Ph.D. in biology, ended his research career at the University of Pennsylvania to then open WOOJUNG in October of 2012. Since then, we have enjoyed dining with our regulars, meeting traveling businessmen/women, and introducing new sushi-eaters to their next favorite cuisine. WOOJUNG = Woo (their son) + Jung (their daughter). By putting the names of their two children together, Thomas and Matilda were able to develop a restaurant that is less generic and much more familial. Additionally, “Woojung” also means “friendship” in Korean, hence the logo’s two orange circles that are connected in an infinity sign. You’ll often find Jung, their daughter/social media coordinator/sushi guru, serving at the restaurant.
