everything on the menu is fresh and wonderful. Nice variety from sushi to soups to entrees. The service is great and the dining is cozy.. I usually get take out because i work next store and they are real business partners!

The title is not just hyperbole. I don't even like sushi very much, I *never* order it anywhere except Tokyo! Lest that deter you from taking my advice, my girlfriend loves sushi and Tokyo is also her favorite in the city. I usually get the volcano roll, while she loves the sunset roll. The chicken katsu is also amazing, as... More

Wow- as another reviewer wrote, under new ownership this place really has gone from good to great. I think they have the best sushi in Louisville now. Highly recommended. The sashimi was fantastic.

Under new ownership, this place has gone from good to GREAT. I used to travel across town for sushi, but with the new menu and the new owner that has changed. Start with the sauteed Edimame and then move onto the ceviche. Then choose any of the fantastic roles. My favorite is the "Rock and Roll" or the "Tuna 3... More

Never seen the actual restaurant but this place was my saving grace when I got a serious craving for some sushi. Thanks to Takeout Taxi I received some in about 30 minutes, delivered right to my hotel at 10:00 at night. The spider roll, the spicy salmon hand roll, and the spicy tuna roll were awesome! The spicy sushi was... More

The sushi at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant was good...not great. The restaurant was clean, small and not memorable. The family owned friendly service was excellent. I will return!

Love this place!!! The whole family loves Tokyo, even the work groups I take out to lunch love Tokyo! Family run, Roy and Jessica are always there and do their best to know their regular customers. Uni is always fresh, Hirame is best on the planet, if they have it, it's fresh and delicious. Oh, and don't forget the ginger... More

This local restaurant has been in Louisville for about 12 years now. I love it. Not only is the food delicious, the service is fast and swift. This place is different from the other many Japanese places here. They specialize in their own kinda of sushi. They make themselves a brand. I followed their new "Facebook" page recently. Check it...

We love this restaurant and the staff are fantastic. The sushi is absolutely delicious. It's a bit unassuming as it's in a little strip mall but it's worth finding.
