I would give 5 stars if it weren't for the grouchy Korean lady (possible owner/cashier/server). It's like the saying goes, you can either have good price, good food, good service, but you can't have all 3. 1) Food is the bomb. Had the tempura combo (I think comes with shrimp & veggie tempura-tempura sauce nice & not too much ginger in it, teriyaki chicken-teriyaki sauce was perfectly balanced, maybe a Cali-roll/I don't remember. Alby had the chicken katsu, god that katsu sauce was good. Home-made kimchee is killer. Fair portion size. 2) Is it the cheapest eats on the block? No, but I think the price is pretty fair considering. $45 for 2 adults & a toddler. 3) Casual/need not fuss about clothing. 4) Service: Lol. You just order at the counter & she'll just bring it out to you with your initial drinks. That's about the extent of that. But hey, more of a coworkers eat at lunch/no fuss thing, so who cares if u try to conversate with staff & they completely ignore you
My husband and I were visiting from San Francisco and after a week of gorging on lumberjack sized breakfasts and deep fried seafood platters, we wer…
I work in the Midtown area and I have been eating lunch at Tokyo Garden almost every day for over a year. The reason is simple: There is no other place in town where you can have a full meal for $15.00. The buffet bar is always hot and steamy. They have chicken wings and popular Chinese style chickens like Kungpao chicken, sesame chicken, chicken teriyaki. If you like pork, they have pork ribs, teriyaki pork and the authentic pork feet in savory sauce. The Mongolian beef is awesome. For sea food lovers, YOU GOT TO TRY THE SPICY SQUID. The fresh fruit bar is always fresh. Right next is Tokyo Garden's exclusive cream cake that is not overly sweet like cakes from local or national chains. They have half a dozen kinds of sushi. Heck, if you go to a sushi only restaurant, the cost of one piece of sushi is $3. Here, for $15, you can eat all sushi you want plus access to the whole buffet bar.
This place is absolutely amazing when it comes to sushi! They have a number of delicious choices so each time you go back you can always try something new. They also release specials from time to time to spice things up. The service is great, after going a couple of times they recognized my fiance and I by face and name and we're at the point now where we seat ourselves. Really friendly and warm atmosphere and great food to top it all off. This is a must try for sushi lovers!
