“Authentic Japanese restaurant run by Japanese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Located on Vestbrogade, a short walk from the central station. Said to be the first Japanese restaurant in DK.

Run by Japanese couple, with very nice and friendly service. While Sushi is the most well-known Japanese food here they have a good menu for ppl who would like to taste something real Japanese, like Sukiyaki or Shabushabu...

Been there twice, will surely visit again and try their Ramen :) Unadon is sth I am also very much looking forward to.

“So Happy To See Katsudon on a Menu!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

After living in Japan for three years, I was very dismayed to find that in Denmark, Japanese food = Sushi. But, after hunting down Restaurant Tokyo, I was finally back with REAL Japanese cuisine, and fantastically tasting food at that! It may be the best Katsudon (my favorite dish) I've had since leaving my old apartment in Tokyo. Don't be fooled by the somewhat sketchy-looking entrance, the inside is peaceful and lovely.

“Overpriced but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We went to this place for dinner and we were very satisfied. It is a very special restaurant comparing to others. I would say that you can expect a 100% Japanese style dining experience at this place, except that you pay double price for what you get instead in Japan. All the staffs and chef are Japanese and they have brought the Japanese quality and service to this place. Food is authentic. We had dinner set menu of Shabushabu and Tonkatsu. Almost perfect. My tonkatsu turned out to be not evenly fried and a bit over fried. I do not want to complain here because it is so so so hard to find good/real quality of Japanese food outside Japan. Really expensive must I say. It would cost half of the price in Japan. Consider it for a special occasion, have a drink with old friends on tatami, or if you simple miss Japanese food, go for it. It is worth it.

“Top food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

The food here was so tasty that we returned for a second meal within a week of the first, and now it has become a regular hautn of ours. The wine list is extensive and competitively price, as is the menu.

“Not even a chance. Poor service at the entrance!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

We walked-in on Thursday 8.30pm on the 1st day of August and was bluntly told by one of their staff that the kitchen is closed! We pleaded to make an exception but was turned down. There was no information given on their website that the kitchen is closed at such a time! Although Tokyo stated on their website that their closing time is 11pm, we do not comprehend the logic behind them closing the kitchen 2.5hrs before it! WTH! We were so disappointed with their attitude. Did anybody else had this bad service attitude? Bagero restaurant.
