If you are fed up with YoSushi conveyor belt food, or don't want the pretentious and overpriced dinner at Sushi&Sticks, but still fancy a Japanese lunch or dinner, eat in or takeaway - look no further than Japas. This is our 'local' and we have sushi from there several times per month, and have done for the last several years.... More

We have eaten here on several occasions.. the sushi is ok but mains are not fantastic.. The waitress though is so rude its actually entertaining.. after asking for a table for two she walked us to a table in the corner through the chopsticks on the table and walked off..

Okay, if you're craving Japanese food, you might consider this place for the sushi, but just takeaway. The service here is HORRIBLE. The waitress is so rude to you and she looks like she cannot be bothered by serving you. DISGUSTING SERVICE. Such a shame because the food is quite decent. And this place is also EXPENSIVE and there is... More

I've just had lunch with a friend of mine in your restaurant. Food was excellent but service was one of the worst I've ever experienced! And we were charged for it too. The server (a female) was incredibly rude and unfriendly, would just bring food to the table in silence. I ordered Philadelphia roll uromaki and mistakenly put 106 on... More

My husband and I ate at Japas Sushi today and had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent and our sushi came out quickly! My husband had tuna and salmon sashimi, and I had tuna and salmon nigiri. Both were excellent, but the salmon was really incredible. You could tell it was very fresh and melt in your mouth tender,...

My first visit to Japas Sushi tonight was a huge disappointment. The sushi had a strong unpleasant fishy smell and tasted accordingly. The salmon was low quality and did not seem to be very fresh. Even the sushi without fish, avocado maki were not much better. The rice is not well prepared and the soy sauce was poor quality (it... More

Six of us came out for a bit of a night. Friends came to stay and they were big sushi fans so I found this on trip advisor and booked a table. Some reviews say the service was unfriendly, we were happy with all we saw fresh sushi, we didn't wait too long between the orders and the staff seemed... More

Despite the place having good food I doubt I will return, the waitress was unfriendly, bored and couldn't wait to take our plates away despite the place being empty. Was really not happy with the added service charge. This is unfortunate as the owner (assuming it was him) was very nice and accommodating.

Ordered a takeaway two sets of sushi and a curry. Very average quality and smallish quantity for the price they are charging. This will be the last time ever.

We work next door and used to come here ore often for a bite after the day. The food is good and if you order two dishes you are certainly satisfied, but you also leave a bit more money than at other places. Sadly, the staff is never really friendly so we at some point decided to go somewhere where... More
