I don't know about Hank below, but I love Tokyo and is my go-to for delicious sushi. I scrutinize all sushi places and Tokyo always blows away the competition. It's great for a nice date night, byob. The quality of the food will speak for itself. Disregard below review, Tokyo is well worth the visit.

I have never in my life been compelled to write a review for anything until now. Saturday night was THE most awful and humiliating restaurant experience of my life. My wife and I visited Tokyo restaurant and it all went downhill from there. The service was awful. We sat for 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. The waiter never asked us if we wanted our drinks refilled and to top it off, we never GOT OUR FOOD. We did get our appetizers though.....thankfully. Sixty minutes after we sat down, our main course which consisted of 6 rolls never came out. To add salt to the wound....our waiter came out with a plate that he thought was intended for us (we thought so too) put it on our table and then realized it was for another again we waited. Finally after one hour something was coming our way but my wife and I had enough. We simply could not wait any longer. I asked for the check...and guess never came. I put 20.00 on the table to cover the appetizers and left. You would think that someone would have the courtesy to apologize but no one did. I will never, ever recommend this place to anyone. The wait staff did not understand English too well. Several times we had to spell things our for them and they were very rude as well. The waiters checked out every pair of legs that walked by. I am going to end this now before you think I am crazy but all of these things are true.....Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

I have been to alot of restaurants in my day- alot of sushi restaurants, in particular. This restaurant has some great, non-pretentious, and inventive sushi that will leave you coming back for more. No, I wouldn't order the scallops (hint: dont order whats not typically on a japanese sushi menu)...but focus on their sushi and dinners and you WONT be disappointed!

My boyfriend and I love Tokyo. It's delicious and BYOB.. prices are cheap. How much better can it get? Don't forget to get the Spicy 3 in 1 roll mmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!

Best sushi esp yellow tail, salmon, squid salad, and unagi, Best sushi chefs. Ask head man to make you something special and leave it all up to him because he never disappoints. Try Yummy roll for simplicity and excellence. Try alternate wrap for rolls; instead of seaweed try soy in colors. Try cheeks-awesome bbq.
Big lunch appetites must have katsu don at least one.

I have eaten at Tokyo restaurant so many times in the past 3 years I've discovered it. My boyfriend and I even went two days in a row because we were just so satisfied with what we got from the restaurant. Now we regularly visit the restaurant every two weeks or so.

The quality of the food is off the charts. The sushi is soooo fresh and the range of flavors is great. If this is your first time going to Tokyo, please order the Peace Roll. It is literally a bite of heaven! To be honest, because we're so focused on the sushi itself, we very rarely get any of the entrees but the following are great picks: Una Jui (eel with rice), osomashi soup, crab fried rice, salmon skin fried rice, kaso garaage (fried octopus). I don't know! It's all so great!

We get great service each and every time we go but I suggest you make this an intimate affair. Over the past 3 years that I have been going, there has only been like 4 times where I have gone with more than 1 person. Personally, my boyfriend and I go at lunch all the time because the setting is more quiet and the staff is more attentive. Plus you get the duck udon soup is only on the lunch menu and that soup is just ridiculous! =D

If you're not afraid of getting to know people, I suggest sitting at the bar. The sushi chefs are very friendly and they will want to get to know you if you put an effort in knowing them. Plus they will load you with goodies!

I have eaten sushi from Maine to New York to Connecticut to Massachusetts and in RHode Island itself but no place and I mean no place compares to Tokyo! For our anniversery, we went to Morimoto NYC and even that place couldn't compare!

I've eaten many times at Tokyo over the last decade and while it's a good Japanese restaurant, it's also a hit or miss proposition. The sushi/maki and service depends on whether or not the U's and C's are in full session. During the school year it's overcrowded resulting in slow/poor service and less than fresh sushi. Summers, holiday periods are best. Most of the maki is prepared for American tastes, there's little authentic sushi. Tokyo is the result of a divorce between the former owners of Sakura, down the street from Tokyo. The husband kept Sakura and the wife was set up at Tokyo that was formerly a vegetarian place. There's very little difference in the food

best sushi i have ever had.....

review_stars 02/25/2009 -
The food at Tokyo is very good, but I am writing about their complete disregard for their external environment. I live on the East Side, and so tired of seeing the litter strewn sidewalk in front of Tokyo. They make no effort at all to keep things clean. It's downright offensive. Until customers begin to demand that restaurants take care of their space, this will continue to happen. A quick litter pick up by a staffperson every morning would solve this problem. (I do this every day at my home.) So, clean it up, Tokyo. Then I'll consider visiting your restaurant again.

I totally agree with the previous review. Clea up your act Tokyo. We value our neighborhood. Your food is good, service is ok at best. Best to order take out!

The sushi at the Tokyo restaurant is absolutely delicious but the waiters are often completely apathetic or oblivous of you at times. In spite of this the food and atmosphere are great. A must try if you live or are visiting New England.

review_stars 06/20/2008 - Sushi Obsessed
Most Amazing sushi restaurant in New England hands down! The food is beyond fresh and you cant help but gorge yourself because you have to try one of everything. I'd travel from anyway just to go and get the amazing Sashimi. If your a sushi lover and enjoy watching the comings and goings of downtown east side life, this is definitely the place to be. Friends coming that have never been to Providence, this is the most ideal stop to capture the essence of all that is the urban culture scene that encompasses the east side. The inside is on the quite and quaint side but its a great place for wonderful conversation over your favorite bottle of wine. Try it or your not living.

Best sushi in New England...have eaten sushi all over California and New York and this can not be beat...service is excellent...waiters helpful and prices low...what a find...we travel from the Cape and feel it's worth it...for all sushi lovers...this is the place to be.

review_stars 01/24/2008 - Awesome!
Food is awesome. Service is hit or miss. When they are really busy they do flounder a little bit. Atmosphere is a little tame and boring. But the food is soooo worth it. I've been to several different sushi spots and this is by far the best. I've even done Nobu before and this rates better.

review_stars 01/15/2008 -
I love the food, but does anyone know what is in the maki sauce?

review_stars 09/08/2007 -
Food is great...great sushi, great hot Japanese food, too. The service is HORRIBLE. It can take forever to get your check, and if you sit in the back (no shoes, please), they often forget about you.

It's BYOB which makes this place a great value.

I suggest ordering takeout.
