We had a great meal and will be going back. We started out with "Monkey Balls" which was a cross between a stuffed mushroom and sushi - very good, will order again. The sushi was good and fresh. Wife had a pork dish that was tasty. The highlight was a roll topped with fresh salmon brought to the table on... More

Twokoi it has been a terrific place for sushi. The food is always fresh and well presented. The food staff has been amazing and we have found it to be a great place to take company.

On a recent trip to Tacoma I enjoyed this place so much that I went back a second time to try more of the menu. Standouts were the baked oysters and carpaccio (a fish carpaccio, selection of three raw fishes with a citrus sauce). Both visits were late in the evening. Service was friendly and helpful. Also had a few... More

As a Florida native, I love seafood. Having close friends of Asian descent, I'm pretty familiar with great sushi. I was impressed with this place. I ordered the chef selection which included sashimi. It was fantastic. I also had a sake sampler. The sake menu is amazing and idiot proof. There's a breakdown for the level of dryness versus sweet,... More

We were in town to look at museum row and Yelped this place. It's right across from the museum in the UWT campus. Kind of an odd corner location and when we entered it was a bit dead with one server working...did we make a mistake? NO. Order skewers, 3 rolls, and udon. One of the rolls was a bit... More

We tried our best to find sushi in Tacoma. Our hotel recommended this place. I couldn't eat it. I was surprised to find chewy fish that I couldn't bite through. I had to spit it out - it wasn't octopus or anything else that was supposed to be chewy - it was supposed to be tuna. There was absolutely nothing... More

We walked from the convention center in search of dinner /take out food since we were on a short break and ended up here. It took least 25 -30 minutes for Teryaki ($15) and chicken Katsu ($17). The portions were very small and side accompaniements were a joke - they put one chunk of carrot and a piece of brocoll... More

I love sushi and I love a place that allows all you can eat for lunch. The staff is always ready to serve your next sushi roll. The sushi is excellent and I have never had a bad experience.

We had a private room for a family gathering and the service was great. The sushi was fresh, and the cocktails amazing! The private room was a bit worn and could use some sprucing up.

We wanted a late dinner (10 p.m.) and were told this was one of two places near our hotel that was open. We weren't sure what to think, as we don't care for sushi, but figured we'd give it a try. We ordered 3 appetizers - calamari, tempura-battered tofu, and the gyoza. Oh my goodness - all three were scrumptious.... More
