We perform three-dimensional simulations of the impact of a granular jet for both frictional and frictionless grains. Small shear stress observed in the experiment is reproduced through our simulation. However, the fluid state after the impact is far from a perfect fluid, and thus the similarity between granular jets and quark gluon plasma is superficial because the observed viscosity is finite and its value is consistent with the prediction of the kinetic theory.
