Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was sublime. I’ve been to a few sushi places in Dublin and this was by far the best. The staff were lovely and attentive and the restaurant is in such a beautiful spot. Couldn’t ask for more. The prices were also very fair.

The sushi was of poor quality and not enjoyable at all. The fish seemed to be old and spoiled, which resulted in making us sick. Furthermore, the rice was very stale. The location was small and lacked any sort of ambiance. Despite being a newly...opened establishment, my colleagues and I regretted trying it as it turned out to be the worst decision. We have no intentions of returning there.More

Worst Sushi in my life. We went for Dinner to J2, the location is very nice - great view on the river. We ordered couple of Nigiris/Makia/Calli Rolls. Service was nice. I was not expexting too much on the Quality. We received the Sushi and...Soy Sauce in plastic boxes.. no plates at all. The Sushi rice was warm/hot. The fish tasted old.. Honestly the Sushi from the Supermarket is having a better quality then this one. I would not recommand anyone to eat there. I can not judge on the other dishes they offer.More

Living across the river from the North Wall branch of J2, we have made a huge number of visits over the years. Never really disappointed, always four star, sometimes five but with a recent fear that standards may be dropping. The spot lends itself well...to a solo grab and go, a routine couple night out, and even a big family get together. Everybody I have brought here have been impressed. J2 do most of the typical Japanese staples and do them very well. From quality sashimi, sensational tiger roll, innovative crispy salmon with wasabi mash, and cheap and very cheerful wok fried udon. I even broke from the norm and tried the steak they were offering which was only phenomenal. I was sorry to see it go from the new menu! We have popped in several times since the new menu was introduced and this is what prompted this review and the fear of things sliding. We have noticed the prices have escalated while the portion sizes seem to have diminished. Some staples like the miso seem to be of poorer quality. There are a couple indications that care for the customer has lapsed. A new early bird is priced such that it is actually a little more expensive than ordering certain starter and main combinations. The bathroom area could do with a refurb at this stage as needing to visit it diminishes the overall experience of frequenting this tiny establishment. We were recently delighted to be presented with a complimentary plate when we pointed out the shrinkage of the typical seabass serving. We left hoping the not yet laminated menus indicate they are still reviewing changes to dishes and prices. Our current hope is that the management consider the impact of raising prices and lowering expectations has on loyal custom and that our chronic desire to visit this bento sized restaurant is preserved. Dozo!More
