We love the buffet. It has almost anything Chinese you can think of! My favorite is the teriyaki chicken and the sweet carrots. My husband's favorite is the garlic shrimp with peppers and onions. The staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. We eat here often. We sometimes order take-out. The shrimp fried rice is delicious! We highly... More

If we need take out my husband always volunteers this spot. We order from the menu, but they also have a buffet. Children enjoy the aquarium. Spruce Pine has two spots for Asian food. This is our favorite. It is family owned and its been a pleasure watching the children pitch in and help. Our favorite dish is Orange Chicken.... More

I feel our visit to Spruce Pine was really wonderful, but my reviews of the restaurants are not so positive. When I go on vacation I really like to have some good eats. Tokyo Restaurant was a last minute selection after the July 4th parade, which was fun. We just wanted some quick, good wok work. My Kumpo Chicken was... More

I ordered Chicken Chow Mein and an egg roll. The chow Mein looked like a bowl of Roman Noodles with at few slivers of chicken and something green. The egg roll was store bought in the frozen food section. I will never go back nor suggest that anyone else eat here . Mary Jane Lafferty

Tokyo offers good food for the money. The wait staff works hard to make sure you have what you need. I am unhappy with their run down looking restrooms. It is an old building that they rent for their business, so I don't know how much control they have over this part of the restaurant. I would love to give... More

At $7.5 for a buffet, you can not go wrong. The food is decent and typical of American-Chinese buffet. Family owned, friendly service. For Spruce Pine, it is a unique Chinese restaurant

I enjoyed eating here. The food was great and the staff was helpful too. I had the sesame chicken dish and I would get it again if I went back.

There is always a lot of food on the Sunday afternoon buffet at Tokyo Restaurant. There is also a variety of oriental dishes along with some American favorites (green beans, potatoes, and carrots.) Every time I have visited this restaurant, there are lots of customers. The staff is also helpful and friendly.

Thanks to this fine restaurant, our family enjoyed a delicious evening meal on Easter Sunday. The service was great, the food very tasty, the menu extensive. Everything was fresh, and served beautifully. I highly recommend a stop here!
