Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

Good place to go eat sushi on a Friday night. Definitely will return. Prices aren't high, just right!

“Amazing Fish Cheeks”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

After having a serious sushi craving and checking the reviews, we decided to try something new.

Tokyo Japanese Restaurant is tucked away in Nichols Hills in a stand alone white and black house. The decor is austere and simple and could probably use some freshening.

The menu is varied and has something for everyone. We had udon noodles, a philly roll, agedashi (deep fried tofu), Kama (fish cheeks), hand roll and edamame (soy beans).

All the hot food was expertly prepared and the fish was fresh and excellent. The agedashi could have been cooked at a higher temp as they were on the oily side. The presentation and prep overall was fine and the added oil certainly did not stop me from eating the whole thing!

I have to say...the highlight was the fish cheeks. I had become accustomed to having them in Seattle but this was the first time I had found them in OKC. They were the best I have had. It was a hugely, generous portion that was cooked to perfection. The fish fell away in wonderful, moist sections that was perfectly salted.

Dinner was excellent and we are looking forward to checking out more of the extensive menu.

“Most Authentic”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Better than other "fancy" places in town. More authentic, friendlier and better prices. For folks who know and love sushi--this is where they go!

“Best sushi in OKC”
Reviewed 22 September 2012 via mobile

I have eaten at all of them and this place is the best. If you want to see and be seen and don't mind paying $9 when you can get the exact same (or usually better) sushi for under $5, then head south on Western, but the sushi and sashimi here beat them all hands down and for much less. Octopus salad starter (free mini portion with your order) is worth ordering in the full sized serving. On busy nights just sit at the bar if you are in a hurry. I have never seen see bluefin on the menu here either.

“Authentic Japanese, great sushi”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

This is the best sushi in town if that is your thing, but where it really shines are the traditional Japanese dishes(they don't eat sushi for every meal you know?). I have spent over a year in Japan and when I am craving authentic Japanese, this comes pretty close. The prices are also pretty fair so that helps even more!
