Tomokazu offers all you can eat Japanese for lunch, dinner, and late night. An la carte menu is also available.
My wife and I have hit this place after 9:30 for the all you can eat several times now and really enjoyed it. The portions are smaller than most all you can eat joints I've been to, but the all you can eat obviously takes care of that. The food has been consistently really good every time we've gone. The service is, as many people have said, a bit wonky. The first time we went we were seated in the main portion of the restaurant and the service was incredible. Food came right away and was quickly replenished. When we sat on the other more secluded side of the restaurant service wasn't nearly as good, but still wasn't terrible. I recommend getting a seat in the main area if possible and ordering the Korean BBQ Pork, yummy!
went there for lunch today. Got there at 2pm and the place was nice and quiet. I have been there before for dinner and the dinner menu is outstanding for the price you pay oppose to the lunch menu (not as many choices). Staff seems distracted with other duties and not tending to your needs. The sushi is amazing especially the salmon sashimi. I will continue to come here.
not a fan of sushi in general, so I ate mostly cooked food and I was quite pleased with what was offered...prawn tempura was great..large selection of sushi/sashimi and from the appearance on my cousin's face, most seem to be enjoyable (except for the shrimp sushi)...overall, a decent place to eat buffet food.
love the place wayyy better than fish on rice, food is good price is decent, service is solid cant really say anything bad other than the amount of food u actually get from what u ordered. i come back to this place time and time because overall its a better ayce than other places. oh and one more thing. i dont like the fact that they make you pay for parking in the back even though parking is free in the front streets. never the less still a good place to eat.
My food quality rating of "4" is for an all-you-can-eat. They have good quality and lots of choice as far as these kind of places go, and things like Toro sashimi are a bonus. For a-la-carte sushi it would probably be a '3'
The service isn't so hot, particularly when it's busy. But as someone who usually eats a little later, once the rush has passed it's not so bad.
If you're looking for the best quality, no matter the price, head across the street to that more-renowned establishment. But if you want to kick back with beers and sake and chow down with your friends on a pretty extensive variety of sushi, of relatively good quality, for a decent price, this is a good spot.
To my surprise this place is pretty darn quiet for a weekend. I was in for dinner over the weekend and they have quite a decent selection of food ranging from sashimi to sushi to tempura etc... Its a nice pleasant place to eat yet yet the service needs much improvement. I had to wait forever for my drinks and even ginger and they weren't even busy. The managers attitute could also use improvement as I simply didn't like his tone when we complained. Not a very efficient person at all. Its obvious subordinates follows its leader. I can't comment much also in the washrooms... its darn filthy. If I do go back it will be for the food not for the service.
I went here with a group of friends and we were treated like totally kids, i mean we are 16 but we're not children. they forced us to pay tip, acting as if we don't know how to do it ourselves. Demanding 15% tip like what the heck? my boyfriend got so mad that he chucked 5 on the table and left.
Although they have a long range on the menu, most of the stuff on there is basically repeats. the sushi has so much rice so you get full fast. we ordered thsi kind of meat before and when it came it was so small and we didnt even kno what it was.. an dit was practically burnt. gross. They also kept on limiting our orders, say if we ordered 10 of this they only gave us 5. so we would have to keep on ordering until they gave us it. it really pissed us off.
But seriously the thing that pissed me off the most was the waitress, which i will leave nameless. she's one of the reasons why we don't go anymore. she was so mean to us. rudest person ever met.
Just went to eat at the Tomokazu last night. This was one of my delightful Japanese food restaurants I have been to. For around 20 bucks I can stuff myself crazy. The Sashimi food presentation is excellent. Nice decor, solid speedy spiffy service. Regardless of other reviews this place is great. Late night is $12.95 of course its gonna be packed. For $13 per head I wouldn't complain about too much. To my understanding they have another restaurant in Richmond named Ninkazu. Can't wait to try that.!!
Ok that food is pretty decent here but its not that different from some of the other eat all you cans. Still, I love the sashimi especially the beef sashimi! What i dont really like is there service. When we order stuff on the list they usually give us so much less.. I order 10 orders of beef sashimi and they gave us 5 orders and this has happened almost everytime I have been there. Oh yes and when we asked for 6 orders of jello the manager person said we couldnt handle it.. whats up with that? We know what we can handle. And yah we always have to reorder again and again because they dont get the orders right.. and waiting is sometimes frustrating. I think they should have another check box for the amount of plates you want rather then orders. hehe
I am a sushi connoisseur - it's all about the quality of the seafood, especially the salmon. Tomokazu is awesome, I am a regular and it's definately worth a visit. Most of the items on the all-you-can-eat menu are wicked - must try's include agedashu tofu, gyoza, salmon sashimi and sushi, chicken karage and sushi rolls, like dynamite, etc. One of the best Japanese restaurants in Vancouver. Service is adequate. Expect long waits in the evenings, after 930 pm for all-you-can-eat menu - it's usually no wait during the day. Reservations are highly recommended.
The food here is generally pretty good, considering that it's all you can eat. The sashimi and gyoza in particular are quite good.
It's cheap late night, and the atmosphere is nice. However, it's quite popular and crowded at night (I can see why, given the price).
Tomokazu is an very good choice for all you can eat sushi. Cost is $9.95 Lunch, $21.95 Dinner, and $11.95 Late Night after 9:30pm; holidays and weekend add $1. The dinner menu has the widest choices including fresh oysters, cooked oysters, unlimited sashimi, and the usual sushi items. The food is fresh and served quickly and efficiently. Dinner time is very busy and at 9:30pm the place is packed for the late nighters.
Free parking is available in the downstairs parkade.
The negatives of the place were the very sticky floor foyer and a dirty/sticky menu.
