“It is my kitchen and dining room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

I have been eating at Tokie's 3 or 4 times a week for the last 25 years. I think I am addicted! try the curry or the Kama, if you want a change from Sushi and Terriyaki.

“Japanese family owned and operated”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

Fresh fish for their sushi, friendly neighborhood atmosphere, excellent Japanese food. There are two tatami rooms that are fun for groups. When the small plates fad came in a couple of years ago, they added some to their menu - delicious and fun!

“Nice local Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

Thought I'd check this out as it had good reviews here & I was staying in a nearby hotel. It's tricky to find being inside a small strip mall. The decor's fairly typical for a Japanese restaurant in the US, and there was a nice buzz from the other customers. I started with the crab tempura which was good, but the dipping sauce seemed very heavy on the soy. Then had a sushi selection, this was good but not anything special, sushi sam's is still king for me. Overall I'd rate it as a good local offering, but if you're travelling then there are probably better options available.

“Great service, good sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

I like the location of this restaurant because it's close to home, and is a bit hidden within a small shopping center. There's always a good amount of customers here, but the service is excellent, and I've never waited for a seat. Friendly sushi chefs, prompt service, good prices. My boyfriend likes the DBD roll. I like everything!
