Tokyo One is a small, family-owned Japanese restaurant.
I've walked by this place many times, but never tried their food until today when I decided to treat the kids to lunch. Not feeling terribly adventurous today, my son and I opted for a couple of bento boxes and some tomago for my two year-old daughter. The teriyaki chicken was moist, flavourful and delicious - we all enjoyed that. The assorted tempura in the bento box consisted of two plump prawns, a decent-sized carrot disc, and a piece of yam - not too greasy. The California roll was not bland like at some sushi places. The bento box included just the right amount of salad (with a tasty salad dressing) to compliment the rest of the food - it was quite a good portion of stuff! The miso soup was light and not too salty. I didn't try the tomago, but it was still warm, and my toddler did not leave a speck of it on her plate! The restaurant itself isn't fancy by any means; there are a few tables, but on a warm summer evening, I think picking up some sushi from Tokyo One and heading over to Trimble Park would be a great idea!
My friends and I were famished but didn't want to go out.
We stumbled upon Tokyo One Sushi and man, I was glad we found Tokyo One Sushi.
Despite the slight mistake and misorder, we got our great tasting food.
The delivery speed was quick which was great since we were starving.
The person who came with the food was super nice and polite.
Will definitely go again.
Loved their agedashi tofu; I just drool thinking about it.
Thank you Tokyo One Sushi.
Will see you soon :D
There must be 50+ sushi places like Tokyo One in Vancouver. The prices are average and the meal is average. Even though it was a satisfying lunch, my colleagues and I weren't especially impressed. This is a solid sushi spot. Can't hate on this, but can't love it enough to be a regular.
I've been frequenting this sushi place for awhile now, and although it cannot compare to some higher end restaurants, it's definitely great for cheap sushi.
I usually take out, and no matter what I order, it's ready in a maximum of 5 mins. Very fast. In terms of sit-in dining, the service is alright, not overly friendly, but it is fast and attentive.
The quality of sushi is also very consistent - I've found some sushi places use imitation crab and cucumbers as a "filler" for scallop rolls and dynamite rolls and such, but this place actually FILLS your scallop roll with scallop.
Rolls are also pretty cheap and not puny, but not too large that they fall apart (ie. Sushi King).
Their lunch combos are also GREAT value: for 6.95 you can get a very filling lunch.
The sushi here was pretty good. I wouldn't say that it was the best that i have ever tasted. When i walked in, there was no one there to greet my friends and I and we were taken to a table that was too small for us. We also noticed that there was leftover bits of food still on the table from the previous customers. The food took a while to get to our table but on the up side, it wasn't bad. The salmon nigiri was good and so was the BC roll.
