Love this place, food very tasty and fresh. Great food for less. I especially loved the shrimp tempura and the vegetable tempura.

I like the Japan Express for take-out. Call in ahead, and it's ready when you get there. There are tables, but it lacks atmosphere for a social, sit down occasion. Prices are comparatively low (less than $10/entree), selection good, and quantities large. I recommend.

Great fast Japanese food. Have been knowing this place for several years (over 10 years) and never gets old lots of different combination plates or you can keep it simple too. Great portions. White sauce is the best!!!! Must try it at least once

I did not find the food here very appealing to my taste buds. The food did take quite a while to get ready, even though there was hardly anyone in the place. Then it is just- average. Nothing special to the food to make you want to come back. Rice was too sticky. The sushi did not stay together well. They have a few sauces they give and one tastes like a watered down version of a ranch dressing, and the other that is their ginger sauce, lacked ginger and not very tasty. Certainly did not add to a Japanese meal. I normally do not write bad reviews, but I truly will never go there again, and I will not recommend it to friends. However, in trying to leave a positive note, if you are not a picky eater and do not eat Asian fare very much, they do serve a lot of food for a decent price. For many on a budget, it is a place to go to.
