New Tokyo isn't Japanese. The Owner's are either Chinease or Vietnamease. My Father ordered the most basic of Japanese Dishes, Chicken Teriyaki. It arrived burnt and without Teriyaki flavor. The Male Owner and his Son was rude and provided horrible service. And yes I know Japanese Food well because my Father is Japanese/ Hawaiian and was a Cook. Another thing... More

My first visit to New Tokyo restaurant was so enjoyable, I returned again the same day for dinner. They have very good and fresh sushi, along with traditional Japanese fair like a variety of Box lunch or dinners from which to choose. I went with Teriyaki and Curry Chicken Box, both styles of chicken were very fresh and tasty; more... More

My son found this place online and we enjoyed good Japanese food. They have a respectable menu of ramen, udon and donburri. Service and food was very good although no one spoke Japanese. And just not a clean place although pretty artwork. In Japan even modest restaurants like this would be very clean. If in the area again we will... More

I only went for a dinner of Katsudon, which is a rice bowl with breaded pork cutlet. It's typically served with sauteed onions and scrambled eggs. It's often garnished with some nori, kamaboko (pickled daikon), scallions and such. This came with just the main ingredients. The meal also came with miso soup and tsunemono. It was just okay. Service was... More

I come here on occasion if I'm in the mood for Asian food & I don't want Chinese. The place is small & could use some updating on the decor. The lady that prepares the sushi behind the counter is very cheerful & friendly. The guy that is the usual waiter seems like a grouch most of the time so... More

Not authentic Japanese food but tasty nevertheless. They have box lunch or dinner where you can have two items for a great price with rice and salad and soup. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife and service can be slow. Overall food taste good for a reasonable price.

Although the food was quite yummy I would not call it Japanese, and I though it was a bit overpriced. Ramen was terrible as broth was not flavoured with anything characteristically Japanese. The teriyaki chicken was not teriyaki flavoured I would say it would have bern a stirfry packet mix. When they presented the bill we cpuldnt understand it and... More

The atmosphere was nice- and that is all the positive I have. The sushi we had was warm and was disgusting. The salmon in particular had a bad taste to it. We also got a couple of boxes. The squid was not good. The beef and broccoli was actually ok. All in all, it was one of the worst Japanese... More

My husband is very specific about Japanese restaurants, and found a few issues with this one. For one, he said his curry was a Chinese curry (and I'm fairly confident in his ability to identify types of curry). The price was good, especially compared to the other Japanese restaurant in town, and besides the fact that my husband reluctantly consumed... More
