This is my first review and Im very sorry but It’s a place with great potential that it’s just doing everything wrong. All the people inside had to eat with coats and jackets as it was freezing, wine was horrible, avocado was hard to chew...More

Visited this place on my own and I had a great experience. The food was very nice and service was fast and lovely. The view of the water was also very lovely. I recommend it and I will visit again when I am in Dublin.

The service in this sushi restaurant by the river was ok. There is ample choice of different sushi and other dishes. I had a soy-based dish with calamari which was quite nice and of good size but I missed some broth or sauce with it....More

I ate dinner here as it was close to the hotel. Service was good wait staff attentive. The sushi wad okay, not great but not bad. Miso soup was nice but not hot enough. It's small with maybe seating for 30 or so

Nice river location with view. Tables a little crowded. Sushi not up to par. Tuna grey looking. Squid did not taste right. You can not be in the sushi business with less than prime fish. Sorry, not acceptable.

There are 3 versions of J2 in Dublin. Small back street diner (now also open in the evening). Smart larger diner within chq building (attraction on the riverside) and a larger restaurant on the quayside opposite the Spencer Hotel. Food always good, and service always...More

This little sushi place is in a great riverside location and offers really affordable and delicious sushi! We each did the $15 deluxe bento box which came with gyoza, teriyaki salmon, four pieces of sushi, edamame, tempura calamari and a small salad 😳! Really wonderful...More
