We really enjoy sitting at the sushi bar and watching the chefs prepare wonderful sushi. The atmosphere could use some updating, but the food is well worth constant stops

Mo knows fresh! My son lives in Japan and we visit him often. Never had sushi that actually outshines Toyama. He obviously can't offer the variety of a Japanese coast side restaurant but the quality meets or exceeds anything we've had in Japan. We come here for sashimi or nigiri but recently Mo added Japanese wagyu beef to the menu.... More

This is the best sushi in the Phoenix area I have been going here for several years and I feel a bit guilty going somewhere else. If you like traditional sushi and I don't mean rainbow rolls and California rolls this is the place. Just have Mo ( the owner) or Hiro have them make a chefs choice or Omikase... More

Have tried numerous sushi restaurants since moving here from Chicago over 5 years ago. This is the best! Some of the freshest, melt-in-your mouth fish I have had. Mo is friendly and helpful with suggestions. Friendly atmosphere - you can tell he has lots of loyal customers. Have a lot more things to try but glad to finally have an... More

Hidden away from most is a quiet little Japanese/sushi restaurant which has lived in the same spot for years. Very unassuming and not much on decor but a great place to stop for sushi or tempura without the noise and fanfare. In their main room is a board listing evening fare. Focus here. These are the goodies. A hidden place... More

The Sushi is fresh and perfect! If you are a true sushi fan this is the ONLY place to go in AZ! If you are not a sushi fanatic Toyama also offers perfectly prepared extraordinary Japanese dishes. Vegetarian friendly. My daughter is a vegetarian and she loves coming here because the sushi chef will make her creative vegetable rolls. The... More

There are so many choices for sushi now, but very few restaurants that have truly fresh and great quality seafood. Toyama is this place. We try to eat at least one dinner there each time we're in Scottsdale. The owner and his staff are fun to watch and talk with - and yet service is very efficient.

This is a small restaurant in a strip mall north of Scottsdale on North Scottsdale Road. Its worth the trip. We were staying at the Westin Kierland and went on Sunday night. It was so good we came back on the Tuesday night to eat again. Fabulous fresh sushi, made properly like in Japan. Asked for some chopped wasabi to... More

We met Mamoru (the owner and head sushi Itamae) thanks to our Phoenix friends. We sat at the bar and had one of the most mind-blowing experiences ever. He is an incredible person, giving us tips on visiting Japan and surprising us with course after course of delectable raw goodness. We thought we were sushi-lovers...we wrong WRONG. Mamoru has turned... More

Outstanding food and service, chefs are very knowledgable and make you feel right at home without being to casual , service is sharp, I put this ahead of any other Japanese based on the fact the food is authentic and always of a high consistent standard , be advised it's not cheap.
