The food was medioce and the atmosphere is not Japanese. A typical Japanese place who is playing on the West Coast love of Japanese food

I came in on a busy lunch, restaurant looked pretty full so I decided to get take out. There was 1 waitress working by herself which would explain the slow service. I felt really bad for her running around by herself until I heard her yell at the sushi chef for taking someone's order. Then I felt bad for the... More

Everything is great. Their pho is amazing. It was the best I have ever tried in Canada so far. Their sushi is very good too. Very fresh. There are so many things on menu. I will definitely try everything!

The store it's a little bit dated. There is that antique smell in the store. The food was ok. The staff is nice. There are plenty of parking outside the store.

Meat was tough, portions smallish for the price. Quality was OK, but there are better options in Sidney for Japanese Food. Atmosphere and service were nice.

Recently returned to the Taste of Tokyo for dinner and was thrilled to see that they have added Pho to their menu choices. There are a variety of choices for the Pho and we chose the Chicken Pho and the Special Beef - both $11.00 each. A delicious beef broth comes filled with noodles and the desired meat/chicken ordered, plus... More

Ordered green tea which was luke warm. Then ordered the assorted boat with a selection of sushi and tempura. The sushi was ok but on the boat was this large piece of over cooked tuna covered in a thick batter and ver greasy. Certainly was not the light tempura batter I have had at other restaurants Very disappointing. When the... More
