We purchased a Daddy's Deal voucher special for this restaurant. Although the fine print did say "Please phone to make a reservation" we visited the restaurant and saw that it was very empty. When asking for a table we were shown to one and upon being seated and perusing the wine list we showed the waiter our voucher. She visibly... More

Made a reservation at Tokyo Sushi the other night and we were greeted by a surprised waitron who said that there was no reservation on their records. I thought she was going to ask us to come back on another day. THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER PERSON IN THE RESTAURANT. We had the prawn and cheese spring rolls for starters.... More

Ordered food to be delivered and it took an hour and a half. The website has misquoted the portions of their dishes and the restaurant was "too near closing time to sort out the issue." The rest of the food arrived cold. The manager was unreachable and the person who answered the phone could barely speak English. There was no... More

Walking on the kloof St, one cannot miss this place. Attentive service and tasty food. I cannot complain being a vegetarian i had a lot of choice. Artful decor.

When entering the restaurant, the decor and ambiance are exceptionally inviting and the waitering staff attentive and professional. What lets it down is the quality and lacklustre food. Cape Town has such an overwhelming number of dining options that when a restaurant chooses to charge premium prices for their food, these prices need to be met with great food. Of... More

I ordered the lamb dumplings, cashew chicken and egg fried rice. Started with the lamb dumplings and found them to be inedible, so much so that I could not even swallow the first bite already in my mouth. I gave up on the rest without tasting anything else because the smell of the food was not all likeable. The restaurant... More

The location alone puts Tokyo in a great place. Kloof street is known for its trendy spots. The sushi platter we ordered was nothing to write home about. Simple and quite frankly boring. The service was really good though. The two waitresses on duty (it's a small place) were helpful and attentive. On the other hand the place had a... More

Judging by some of the other ratings around here, Tokyo Sushi should've been a nightmare. It wasn't. My friend and I had a pleasant experience. We had a City Slicker voucher for sushi and dumplings. We also had the prawn tempura, which was nice, too. Our server was helpful and attentive and it was a nice evening to sit outside... More
