We have been going to Tokyo Sushi for about 6 months regularly. The sushi is always fresh, the staff are always friendly and remember us and what we tend to order. They also serve a great strip steak and baked salmon. My mother-in-law loves their shrimp tempura and says it is the best she has ever had. The batter is light and crispy -- like it has been cooked in fresh, clean oil.
I have been impressed by the consistency of the quality of their sushi. I always try a different special sushi roll (the special rolls change frequently).
If you like sea urchin, it is always delicious. We have found it difficult to find good sea urchin elsewhere. It is one of our favorites.
The restaurant is small but cozy with a modest decor. It is always a great dining experience.
I too am surprised by the rave reviews. Tokyo Sushi is way overpriced for the quality. Not only was I dissatisfied with the freshness of the ingredients, but also the rolls and portions were very small. There was way too much rice and seaweed and not enough protein and veggies (example: I ordered an asparagus roll and there was literally only one stalk of asparagus in the entire roll). The ratios and freshness were too far off to truly enjoy.
Another reviewer accurately compared Tokyo Sushi to Dierbergs. I actually don’t mind Dierbergs sushi when I want something fast and cheap, but I won’t be back to Tokyo Sushi. It’s just not worth my time and money.

My boyfriend and I have had a lot of sushi from a variety of places and we like Tokyo Sushi the best. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. This restaurant doesn't try to be overly trendy and sophisticated but is still very clean and nice. The service is wonderful. The owner is always there and remembers us when we come in. We even were out of the state for almost 1.5 years and she remembered us after all that time when we came back to eat. The food is good, too. It tastes very fresh and flavorful. I don't think this restaurant is very expensive either. I highly recommend giving it a try.

This place is just sad! Go to Nippon Tei in Ballwin instead. It's worth the drive. I have been to Tokyo Sushi about ten times (only because it's the closest). I have never left there full or satisfied. I have been to just about every sushi place in St Louis, and this is my least favorite. I looked at the reviews and I am shocked that most of the reviews were positive. STOP POSTING REVIEWS IF YOU HAVE NEVER HAD GOOD SUSHI! This place serves Deirbergs quality sushi at the highest price you can find in St Louis. The last time I placed a carry-out order they gave me the wrong roll and charged me for it($2 more than the one I ordered). $24 for one dinner and I'm still hungry. I go to Nippon Tei in Ballwin a lot for lunch ($8) and I always get stuffed and feel like I gave my money to good people. Tokyo Sushi is the place to go if you want low grade sushi at the highest price and you want to feel guilty for wasting your money.

I am so happy Tokyo Sushi is open again after a fire forced it to close this past winter. This is a very good sushi restaurant. The menu is extensive, the ingredients fresh and prices comparable to - if not better than - some other restaurants in town. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. Why travel any further when an excellent meal can be had right here in your own neighborhood?

If you love Sushi this is a wonderful place to go. They have reasonable prices, friendly people, and amazing fresh sushi. This is not a place you will be disappointed by going to. They have very little parking but really not a big issue. Your seated fairly quickly, if you have to wait it is usually no longer than 5 min. It is just a very relaxing place to eat.
