Reviewed 6 October 2012 via mobile

Toyama is a hidden gem. It is a casual environment, with great service. Nice portions and good prices. Japanese steakhouse quality food in quick service environment. Great!

“Fast and inexpensive”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

(I believe the correct spelling of this restaurant is "Toyama Express", and the address is 2130 E Arbors Dr, not just Arbors Dr.)

This quick-serve Japanese restaurant is a popular place at both lunch and dinner time. Sometimes a line forms in front of the cash registers, but moves quickly.

Generous plates of hibachi or teriaki-style food (chicken, steak, shrimp, vegetarian) await you, along with an ample portion of rice, sweet carrots, and sauce. Even the vegetable entree is quite filling, and you may need a take-out box. If you love broccoli, you've come to the right place. Not too greasy or heavy on the sauce, the entrees are enjoyable without being overwhelming. Even kids who aren't fans of carrots might be convinced otherwise here!

Located in a strip mall area on Mallard Creek Church Road, you'll find both table and bistro table seating, A few tables are available out front and are shaded. You'll find other dining places in the same area, such as Rita's, and then a bit further down the road in the same shopping/dining area, you'll find the popular Trader Joe's.
