I love good food and good ambiance. There are no shortages of that in the Coachella Valley. But I have to say my “all-time favorite and most frequented” in 2017 was Joyce’s Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Rancho Mirage. 

The food is consistent and always fresh. Though everything is good, my favorite is the Moon Roll and Protein Roll. While the food is certainly great, I like the employees who welcome you upon arrival and always make you feel special. One favorite in particular is Hanny who is very kind and always ensuring you are satisfied. I asked Hanny how did they come up with the name Joyce’s?  “Joyce’s is named after the owners’ first born daughter. After working so many years in the restaurant business, the owners finally decided to work for themselves and opened their very first restaurant business. We work so closely together trying our best to provide great customer service that we are becoming like family. Our food is always great! It’s traditional and we offer a great variety of foods including cooked from our kitchen, raw; straight from our sushi bar, or even a combination of both!” shared Hanny. I couldn’t have said it better than that!

Something unique that Joyce’s Sushi displays and believes in is “In God We Trust.” It seems we have gotten away from this way of thinking. Something I value and appreciate seeing that others still honor and respect.


Joyce’s Sushi Japanese Restaurant is a comfortable atmosphere and tucked away in the heart of Rancho Mirage off of Bob Hope & Gerald Ford in the Gelsons shopping center. Come by, have a bite of great food, meet some nice people and In God We Trust!
