Queens >JJ's Asian Fusion
“They have an extensive sake menu as well as a variety of beers.”
“This is the best deal in Astoria- the freshest sushi, creative rolls, lots of options, great seafood soup, best potstickers as advertised.”
“Over all, I would definitely go there again many times, but would NEVER order out from there again.”
“The dumplings were decent, and the people I was with all thought their meals were above average if not exceptional.”
“I've only ever had excellent service here, friendly and prompt, well worth the 18% gratuity that most people consider the standard tip in our troubled economy.”
“Food was good but the service was pretty slow considering there was hardly anyone there.”
My Fav Sushi Ever!!. I have ordered take out & eaten at JJ's & highly recommend both!!! The food is always delicious, especially the edamame potstickers, the dumplings & some of the special rolls are amazing - like the Astoria Roll!!! All of the typical sushi is great & fresh. Delivery is fast & always correct. Highly recommend!!!
SUSHI A GO-GO ! GO THERE NOW!!!!!. FANTASTIC food and as good as any $100 Sushi house in NYC .Very small,which is great or not so................We like it so. You would never be sorry to eat here.
Answer to: French Food???. I am a ordinary customer there with my husband. We love JJ's scallops california roll with the creamy sauce on top and edemame potstickers. Those two dishes explains a touch of French. Because the owner, JJ, was graduated from the French Culinary Institute. She uses the French cooking techniques in her dishes and thats why its called fusion. Chow!
sushi in Astoria. My sister and I often pass by this place and have been meaning to check it out - last (weekday) evening we did and were pleasantly surprised. The miso soup was hot, not lukewarm like other restaurants; the salmon/tuna rolls melt in your mouth; and udon soup came in those traditional pots, also piping hot and no skimping on the chicken and overloading the carrots, if you know what i mean. The noodles could have been cooked less though. 2 classic dishes for under $30 after tax and tip. Service was very attentive and efficient too. Definitely going back and bringing girlfriends next time!
They serve sushi here. JJ's is a quality sushi place in Astoria Queens where you can get inventive and delicious rolls as well as a nice assortment of sushi pieces that are tasty in you mouth. The place is a little tight and can get busy on weekends, but they do take reservations if you have a large group. I've only ever had excellent service here, friendly and prompt, well worth the 18% gratuity that most people consider the standard tip in our troubled economy. But I guess since fellow user reviewer emeril13 is after all famous tv chef Emeril he shouldn't need to tip that much, just a friendly BAM! and all should be pleased.
It started out to seem like an ok night but the service was lacking and it's not like the place is huge. Then the food was ok no out of this world food. Check time comes and the waitress takes it and comes back and says was there a problem gratuity is 18% well I felt I had left a generous tip which I usually do but apparently it wasn't enough.
So I won't be going back. SO if you do go remember on $100 check they expect $18 or more as a tip.
HUGE price increase and smaller portion. They recently raised the price and made the portion much smaller. They still taste awesome, but charging Manhattan price is not justifiable. I?ve gone there for over 3 years, used to be very low key and relaxing place to dine and drink, now I always feel rushed out. Granted so many good places in Astoria has gone out of business or jacking up price as many folks from Manhattan moving in last 2 years, but I just wish JJ will either lower the price back to where they were, or make the portion the same size before. Because of the two major negatives, I give 3 stars.
Best Kept Secret!.
I was in ABSOLUTE heaven when I ate here with my husband. Food was top notch -- fresh, creative, modern, and wonderful, friendly service. I went based on the two reviews here on citysearch and now there are three.
What we ate: the edamame pot stickers, crispy duck salad, seared tuna, Phonenix roll, and special of the day which I will be dreaming about forever -- Lobster Roll.
JJ Restaurant is one of those hidden gems that you have been looking for. I am so happy it is here in Astoria!! No more trips to the East Village for Sushi.
This is some of the wackiest yummy sushi I've ever had!
I recommend only getting the Chef's special rolls... there's no point in bothering with the traditional sushi rolls, they are pathetic compared to the delicious wonderful specials. I really enjoyed the Tropical Roll 2.
Service was excellent- couldn't believe that one woman was handling the entire restaurant... she was amazingly efficient!
Prices are totally reasonable too, for this quality of sushi. It was $60 for a meal for two, with several drinks and dessert. Nice!
Astoria's Finest. J.J.'s is such a wonderful resteraunt, my gf and I eat here once a week religiously. They serve wonderful salads and noodle dishes, but the sushi is the best in Astoria -Hands-down!!! The service is super-friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. Try one of their special rolls (bluefin toro), or the edamame pot stickers as an appetizer. The resteraunt itself if small, but always bustling with the perfect ambiance. They have an extensive sake menu as well as a variety of beers. Did i mention that the prices are very reasonable - Come try this place!
