“Always a Winner!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Toyama's has the best sushi rolls. My daughter and I eat there often and are always pleased. The atmosphere is relaxing and the service is great! Try the shrimp dumplings, my newest discovery. The lunch specials are always very reasonable. I have never found another Japanese restaurant that measures up to Toyamas. Elizabeth City is very fortunate!!

“As good as sushi gets--”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

And we've been to Japan! A variety of dishes and concoctions amaze with their freshness and taste. Try the kani, squid, cucumber, or avocado salad; continue with a Pink Lady, Spence, or Sun Roll; sample a hot teriyaki dish. Even the tofu is excellent. The service is friendly and brisk. You won't have to wait long. Reviewers who have commented on the big city quality of this gem of a restaurant are absolutely right. The food and service more than make up for the somewhat plain ambiance.

“Big city sushi in a small town”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

We sat at the sushi bar and ordered the sushi/sashimi platter (chef's choice). The sushi chef was reserved but answered as we speculated on what cuts of fish were displayed. The platter was well presented and everything was fresh and delicious.

“Great sushi and pleasant service”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

Toyama has fresh, delicious sushi. The service is always good, whether you sit at the small sushi bar or at a table. I think they could benefit from a menu update, but other than that, it's definitely one of the best restaurants in town. Their lunch specials are a fantastic value.

“Better than some big city sushi bars”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Rainbow Roll is fantastic. Six to eight pieces of sushi per roll. Virginia sushi eaters stay where you are, we don't want you finding this gem.
