Hojoko always seems to add / remove the items that we really enjoy with some regularity. One this evening we were hoping to get the uni toast, wagyu skirt steak, eggplant and wagyu meatballs. We got some other dishes which were good but not the greatest. Terrific service and fun vibe. I’ll come back when they improve the menu
Had a great meal at Hojoko with a friend - great spot to meet after work. The restaurant has cool vibe and ambiance. The cocktail list had a good variety. The Raba Raba was AMAZING - refreshing and light. The food was delicious - my friend had the fried chicken sandwich. I had the Funky Chicken Ramen with the spicy relish on the side. The ramen noodles, chicken and toppings were great! The broth was flavorful, just a little salty. The relish is VERY spicy, but a good add-on. Happy that comes on the side. Would definitely recommend this place!
Note that everything comes in small portions, even the sandwiches and bowls are not that large. The spicy tuna burger and okonomiyake were my fav. The yakisoba is Def not worth it. Nyc>tko cocktail was basically a good quality whiskey sour, but not very memorable. If you're looking for yummy food in a casual setting and willing to pay a bit, I would Def check it out.
Great space and fun atmosphere - sat at the bar. Tenders were attentive and knowledgable. Tried a bunch of dishes - loved the hamachi sashimi and the fried chicken (from the bottom right corner of the menu). The potstickers were also delicious.
Food good but not amazing for the price. $12- California roll was average. Tofu tempura was very good.
NYE three years in a row!! Great spot.
The food was delicious and creative. The waiters were very nice and they were very concerned about food allergies. We were celebrating a special occasion and noted it on the reservation and the restaurant picked up on it and responded. Very nice touch.
The food and drinks were amazing, in both taste and presentation. The service was incredible, staff were helpful and attentive to food allergies, so friendly and accommodating!
Steph is the best. Great service
My only complaint is that I wish they had hot sake! Otherwise, loved it!!!
Great meal and service. They were attentive to the allergies of the group and sat out large party in a quieter area of the restaurant.
the waitress was very nice, the host was not. The sushi was very unimpressive and the bar took 20 mins to pour 2 glasses of whiskey.
This place rips. Excellent and very creative menu, ambiance is a+ and the staff is funky and happy to be working there.
Overall, really enjoyed our meal and our visit. We’ll go back.
As other reviewers have stated, the food is very salty. The atmosphere was energetic (and loud), and the wasabi roulette is a lot of fun for a group of friends, but that's the only reason I would recommend coming here, as the food offerings weren't appealing enough to earn a return visit on their own merits. We tried a variety of appetizers and mains, from the kimcheezy fries, to the salmon sashimi special, okonomiyaki, and kimchee fried rice for starters, and the classics for mains - katsu, funky ramen, chicken sando, kaarage chicken, etc. None of it was bad, but it was all overpoweringly salty and nothing was unique or memorable in a way that would have me wanting more. If you like good Asian food, there are better options. If you want a fun party vibe, this is a good place to check out.
Unique Japanese bar food and drinks. Brains on crack and wasabi roulette very unique must try snacks. Other traditional foods executed well. I wish there were more food items on limited menu.
Great food in a funky, casual setting!
Really fantastic food, and a great atmosphere! We had a blast and would gladly come back again.
Everything was great! A bit noisy, but it was alright for me.
The food and drinks were so great! We can’t wait to go back.
Always great and unique food. A little load but very energetic atmosphere.
Cool spot. Great drinks.
We went to Hojoko for a friend’s surprise birthday dinner. The staff were awesome in helping us to surprise him and in making it a memorable night! As always, the food and drinks were top notch. I love this place!
Food was great! We tried 7 different dishes between two of us. The hamachi was delicious!
Excellent, fun, food. Great for sharing. We ordered a mix of appetizers, ramen, Curry, and everything was delicious.
Shitake mushroom maki is excellent and unique. The other maki was a bit ordinary and not worth the price compared with other neighboring sushi serving restaurants.
Hojoko always has amazing food! Literally Everything that I’ve tried there is good. Ser rice is not amazing, but it’s not too bad for what you’re paying.
I really loved this place. it was nothing like we expect and it was a wonderful surprise. the food had a unique twist and the service was great . every waiter in the place was eager to help any table. I would highly recommend this place.
This place was very interesting. It had a unique spin on Sushi and many Asian dishes. We truly enjoyed every dish. The Sushi was fresh and and the sharing dished are really good. The service was excellent. Our waitress was very helpful with the menu and all the other waiter that were walking around all were eager to help. I will defiantly go back.
Hojoko has bang average food and a cool ambiance.
The burgers were an embarrassment. 18 dollars for a burger on Pepperidge farm buns with a subpar little patty.
we ordered sushi that only came 30 minutes after we had finished all of our other dishes.
The sushi was also very average. I recommend douzo for sushi and tiger mama down the street as much better comparable options.
The atmosphere was great, but it was very noisy. The service was disappointing; we waited 15 minutes before a drink order was taken, and the server was very brusk. We weren’t checked on during the meal frequently, and water glasses were not refilled. The spicy ramen was good. Don’t order the cheeseburger; it was like ordering off of the kids menu at McDonald’s. The burger was tasty, but very small with a fast food style bun. The French fries came in a small paper bag the size of a small McDonald’s fry order; the only difference being the price, $18 for the burger. Disappointing.
Some of the portions were very small but food was very good. It was eRly and the place was not busy but we felt rushed by our sever who was otherwise nice and very helpful with the menu.
Great menu choices. Something for everyone. Fried chicken sandwich, shrimp toast and tuna tacos are all excellent. Cocktail with mango foam was amazing. Bearded server was very attentive and personable.
Ate here before a concert. The place is always bustling and the food is always above average.
got the charred cauliflower (which can be made vegan) and it was amaaazing!
Great spicy tuna roll - fun atmosphere, sat outside. Nice waitress. Not crazy about potstickers. Would go back!
Some great dishes and some good dishes. Lots of interesting choices on the menu and a disinterested server.
Not able to review the food since when we arrived at 10:23PM for our 10:30PM reservation the kitchen was closed die to the dishwasher was "broken ". We had a drink and left.
Excellent drinks, good food and friendly service. Every item served at this restaurant has a unique flavor or method to it. Nothing is routine, so it's an adventure. For example, I had a shrimp hotdog with kim chee topping and french fries. We went on a night when there was a rock concert at Fenway, so they had a limited menu. Four people $240 included 2 appetizers, 5 cocktails, 1 sake cup, 4 entrees, 20% tip.
Casual noodle place that is very down to earth and fun. Packed with energy and young vibe. Not celubrious but that is the point.
We love hojoko. We’ve never had a bad meal here. This experience was fine but our sever seemed overmatched. It took her over 15 minutes before she even greeted us and following table visits were hard to come by. In any setting, that’s a long time to wait. Other than that, the food was great! We will be back!
