This ‘express’ stops at three places, not just Japan but China and Thailand as well. The developers of this chain apparently picked a menu of Americans' favorite Asian dishes from the three nations. Considering the list of entrees, the place seems slightly more Chinese than Japanese, but the Sushi selection was still pretty extensive. I was disappointed not to find my favorite Japanese soup (Miso soup) on the menu. I was kind of hoping for a warm cup when we stopped in for lunch. But my wife and I both enjoyed our hibachi chicken with rice and delicious sweet carrots – the carrots were an unexpected treat. There were two disappointments. What was called ‘fried rice’ was more like soft brown rice. I prefer the Chinese version of well-tossed fried rice, so I’d have to give the fried rice a grade of C. Otherwise the food was good, served warm, and ample remained for a meal of left overs. Bummer number two was that the food was served in styrofoam take-along style clamshells rather than on a real plate even when you eat in. Using plasticware was a disappointment - I hoped it would be one step up from a food court at the mall. Prices were not much different than in many regular Asian restaurants, but the food came out pretty quickly after ordering at the counter. Not a bad Asian food fix if you’re out and about, and all things considered, the Tokyo express works for me.
