My family hits up Tokyo about once a month. Good sushi and the cooked menu items are decent too.
Man, their Tokyo Roll is my favourite in all of Nashville. Yum. I might have to get one tonight now...
The owner's are friendly and I like the big sushi maker clapping his hands all the time when making the sushi.
They have a karaoke room behing the sushi bar if you didn't know!

Went without hearing a word about the place and we are so glad! Everything was absolutely fresh and beautiful, the tempura was so light and crisp, the chicken was like butter, the gyoza to die for. Fast, friendly service, good prices. We'll be back again and again!

Absolutely wonderful. My sister and I went tonight and had a ton of sushi, Yellowtail sashimi, No name special roll, Caterpillar roll, Crunch Munch, Fashion roll, Austin roll, and the squid salad, and i can't say enough about this place. The atmophere was quiet and but inviting. We sat at the bar and both the chefs were very polite and responsive, with a smile. Everything was spectacular, very fresh and made to perfection. We also did a sake bomber which the waitress helped us with, also the chefs were very helpful with suggestions when we were not sure what to get next. I will say no matter where you live it's worth the drive to bellevue

Tokyo Japanese Cuisine is our favorite place to eat. The service is always top of the line and everyone greets you and is happy to see you. Customer service is a lost art these days. Everyone here is so friendly and nice- it makes you want to keep going back. And the food is excellent. Coming from California where sushi and Japanese restaurants abound, this is a trained pallet's compliment. The selection is also impressive. The sushi is always freshly and beautifully prepared. The bento boxes are delicious and the tempura is perfect. You won't be disappointed here. Also, this place can seat two to 20 or more! Its great for a quiet night out with your husband or wife, date, whatever- or its perfect for larger parties and children. Five Stars for sure. Thanks, Tokyo!

Trust me. It is the best sushi in Nashville! I went a lot of sushi places around my town and now I know where to go without hesitating which restaurant I should go for dinner. TOKYO!! During the Christmas season I had special rolls, which were Christmas roll and Santa roll. It was AMAZING!! I really loved it. I bet their fish is very fresh since it melted in my mouth when I had a bite. Hmm~ oh and now one of my favorites is crunch munch roll. You should definitely try one if you get a chance. I heard they are making more special rolls since everyone liked it. I'm so excited. Everything that I experienced there was really good like their food, services, atmosphere, and even music. The restaurant is very clean and nice. It looks like little bit of antic style but it was good enough to enjoy my food and be relax at the same time . I strongly recommend this restaurant to people who want to taste fresh sushi, awesome rolls, and want to enjoy their food in a good condition~

I've eaten at Tokyo several times but unfortunately my most recent visit will be my last. When my wife, daughter, and friend visited for lunch we ended up getting charged double because our waitress made a mistake. I ordered the 5-sushi lunch special (five pieces of sushi and two rolls for $12.99) and our waitress said ""Ok, just write down what you want on the ticket and I'll give it to the chef."" I did, and out came my sushi along with my wife and friend's orders. I noticed that there were more than five pieces -- including two which none of us ordered -- but when I mentioned that to the waitress she said, ""yes, this is what you ordered.""
After receiving a bill for $54.00 when the correct amount should have been about $25.00, I went to the counter to see if they could explain what happened. The owner (presumably) said ""Oh, you marked the sheet -- that's two pieces each."" When I mentioned that the waitress told me to do so after I told her that I wanted the lunch special he said, ""Oh you should have told her that you wanted the special.""
If you go to this restaurant, I'd recommend the bento boxes or anything that's on the menu as-is. Steer clear of any ""specials"" because evidently those are just for show -- they don't really offer them. And make sure you bring plenty of cash in case you make the mistake of ordering something that's on the menu.

The sushi at Tokyo Japanese Cuisine steals the show. The chefs are fun and informative and prepare some of the most unique and decadent dishes I have ever had. I recommend the super crunch roll but everything I have tried is great. The regular Japanese and Korean dishes, however, are sub-par. They're served in trendy dishes and prepared very neatly, but the taste has something left to be desired. The service is great and I wish they had better entrees because it would add to the overall quality of the restaurant. The inside is clean but not very fancy. I wouldn't recommend going to Tokyo Japanese Cuisine for a date night or if your looking to go somewhere for a nice dinner, but if you are craving just sushi, you cannot beat it.

I've been to every sushi place in Nashville, Brentwood, Cool Springs, etc. No other place has this wide of a variety of sushi as Tokyo in Bellevue. I go to this place as often as I can. Residents of Bellevue are too lucky to have this place close by!
I've read the other reviews on here, and with the possible exception of a few of the service comments - I do know that one young waitress in particular isn't entirely 'with it', but that's just one server - some of the other reviewers are just nuts! The water tastes fine, the place is always clean, and the place does NOT leave a smell on your clothes when you leave. This is a place I wouldn't hesitate to bring an important business date to.
Long story short, I've enjoyed everything I've tried from the menu, and I've tried most of it. My favorite is the sashimi, but the sushi rolls and Korean cuisine are not to be missed either! This place feels like home to me, and I always leave with a smile on my face. I can't recommend it enough!

After reading the reviews, we decided to visit this restaurant for my birthday at lunchtime. We were promptly seated at a dirty table and each ordered the lunch special. The miso soup was delicious, but we did not receive chopsticks or silverware for our salad and sat there for 5 minutes before we decided to grab them off of the nearest table. Our tea glasses were never refilled, even though the restaurant was empty and we had nearly finished our drinks before our sushi arrived. The spicy tuna and california rolls were good, but the crunchy shrimp roll had very little shrimp or flavor. My friend asked the server if there was something special they could do for my birthday and she replied ""we don't do that."" When we received our check, the server said ""come back at dinner, it's better."" Hopefully better than lunch! I certainly did not end up feeling special on my birthday at this restaurant.
It is not the best sushi in Nashville - try Fulin's, RuSan's, or Ichiban. Not the best service either, and my friend would have gladly paid for a birthday treat for me if the check hadn't been dropped on the table the second after she had asked.

This place is fantastic. I've eaten at several different sushi restaurants around the Nashville area and Tokyo, by far, is my favorite! I've had at least over half the rolls on their menu and love them all. Anyone who gives this place less than 4 stars apparently has no taste buds!

I have been to several different Japanese / sushi restaurants in Nashville and surrounding areas, and this place has the best sushi I have ever had. The super crunch roll is my favorite and all of their other food is great as well. I went here on my birthday last year and loved it. This is my favorite restaurant, hands down.

The food was definitely above average. It was pretty busy with only a few waitresses, so we didn't get as much attention, but all the servers were nice and got the job done. The traditional japanese decor added a nice touch to the atmosphere, and the ice-cream tempura dessert was excellent!
One of the better sushi restaurants in the bellvue area.

To avoid bad experience of its terrible service and washing entire clothes after coming home, I strongly recommend to have your order to go. We tried their Korean spicy noodle dish, and it was quite tasty. Meanwhile the service from their waitress was very unpleasant. We waited quite a while until we order(actually we got up and looked for our waitress). Then one of dishes that we ordered came out after rest of us finished our food. Obviously the waitress made a mistake when she placed our order, she didn't even bother to offer any explanation or an apology.
We stayed in the restaurant about an hour, but it was long enough to make our entire clothes like reused old oil. You might not notice while you're eating, but after coming home, your clothes will remind you of the restaurant.
Tasty food, but I wouldn't dare to dine in again. I might have it to go.
You must try this place. Its right in Bellevue so its easy to get to but its way better than we thought it would be. Its good or a complete miss with most sushi joints and particularly the ones in smaller cities like Bellevue. But this place is really good! We were so impressed. I recommend without a doubt you try the Dragon Roll. Oh my goodness! Its the best! And the shrimp tempura was to die for along with the teriyaki and all the other fixins like Miso soup and salad. Actually this may be the best Ginger dressing I've had in a LONG time! Wash it down with hot green tea and you are set to enjoy a delicious meal!
Though the service is often patchy and my orders are often incomplete or wrong, the sushi is undeniably fresh and exciting. Stick to the sushi list, a few of the noodle dishes are quite tasty, but the sushi is the real appeal to this restaurant. Also don't forget to bring two dollars to feed the tank of pirana (preferably after you've eaten, don't lose that appetite)

This is one of my favorite restaurants with the best sushi around! I have had sushi at other places, and none of them compare to Tokyo. The flavors are wonderful. The staff are always so friendly and accomodating & the service is great. I definitely recommend Tokyo!
