After moving here from the West Coast I was having a hard time finding good sushi. I read about Jo An Sushi so my husband, daughter and I went. Delicious!!!! We got the sushi for 2, which is chef's choice sushi. The salmon melted in my mouth. My daughter who is 5, got the appetizer chicken teriyaki and a side... More

Jo An is a spot you need to know about, they do not advertise much, and for many years this was the spot that the Toyota staff dined and brought their Japanese bosses when they were in town. Since Toyota's move to Texas many of the staff have left, the food and service is now inconsistent.

As you walk up to the front to see the host, you will see the backside of the kitchen on your right hand side, which is not exactly a pretty sight. Not a good first impression! But now the rest of the story: I got seated at 9:10 pm (Tuesday evening). When I ordered sushi, I was told it was... More

I have been staying at the Marriott courtyard for years and never knew that this place existed. A little hard to find - it is inside a business building. So happy that I found it. Went there to take out. The tempura shrimp was excellent. The sushi was outstanding. The decor of the place is very nice. That will be... More

Wonderful authentic Japanese cuisine. Unusual location in a business type office building, but excellent food and service. My only regret is not being able to go back due to the length of my stay.

Fantastic dining experience! Great service and excellent food. Strange location, but worth the drive out of the way.

It's Saturday night, medium full, and one poor man at the desk doing 10 tasks at once. Where's the staff? Carpet is absolutely filthy, brown pathways. Ceiling tiles are dirty showing neglect. Drink order, 20 mins. I understand Toyota has downsized, but what is happening to the once great Jo an is just sad. We haven't been here in a... More

I went to Jo An for a solo dinner on a Wednesday evening while staying at the Courtyard across the parking lot. I had white miso soup, a tuna avocado roll, and a shrimp tempura roll. The tuna was extremely fresh and my entire meal was delicious. Service was friendly and prompt. I would definitely recommend going, especially if you... More

We ate here because we stayed in the Courtyard across the parking lot, otherwise I can't imagine we would ever have found it. It sits unobtrusively in the bottom of an office park. Sashimi, gyoza, sushi and the grilled fish we had were all excellent.
