Japolo is our go to place for Pho and sushi. We go there a couple of times a month and the food is always yummy and service is quick. I recommend Japolo to anyone looking for a good quick meal that is reasonably priced.

Dinner for two. The lemongrass chicken is very nice, decent sushi, light and tasty tempura. My combination plate and a lemongrass chicken dinner along with 3 appetizers totalled $42.00Cdn. No alcohol but a nice selection of Nona alcoholic drinks

I love the sushi and rolls here! The chef's special is a crunch roll and very simple but perfect. The Olympic roll was delicious, ask the chef for a dragon presentation. My favorite was the delicate jelly fish with shark fin. The Toro and salmon sashimi was super fresh and literally melts in your mouth. We also had unagi which... More

Love the sushi here; great quality rice and fish. Ask the chef for what is fresh. He's great at cooking but needs to not answer his phone when people are seated at the sushi bar. The place looks bad; everything is run down and worn but the sushi is great. The vietnamese we had was good but not amazing (we... More

This amazing sushi chef was missing in action for 2 years but now he is back and better than ever. I' m talking about rose made out of salmon brought to your table. This is a must visit for sure. Try the sushi pizza. Be patient with the service as sometimes language is an issue but you won't be disappointed

My wife and I used to make this spot our go to in sushi selection. Since then, we've moved away and hadn't been there in over 2 years. Walked back in and it was like nothing had changed. The owner, Jackie, remembered our "usual" and is always so personable. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for creative sushi... More

The good: 2 culinary choices...Sushi and Pho! How can you go wrong right? The bad: - service. smiles and greetings are free. it can't be that hard to do. - Sushi. Gross...not fresh and the pieces were less than optimal. How can you run out of Tuna on a Saturday night? - Pho. For the price (almost $10 for a... More

Japolo doesn't quite know what kind of food it wants to serve. The menu has a mix of sushi, Vietnamese food (pho and banh mi), and some unique offerings like the sushi burger. Overall the food is pretty good - every time I've gone the food has been hot and fresh, with the tempura being especially tasty. Sushi is generally... More

I've been to Japolo twice now, once to the opening and only one time after. (Which turned out to be a very poor decision) The waiters seem to harbor some judgement to you if you are not a certain ethnicity and are very rude in general. We ordered Pho and sushi, on both occasions. I have to say the Pho... More

The quality of all the food is excellent, at a good price. I have tried veggie tempura at several restaurants, Japolo's is superior by far. The servers are always polite, and friendly. They do their best to explain the different menu items. Everyone should give Japolo a try. We have been going there for eight years, and always enjoyed it!
