Food was fresh and delicious, service was mediocre- probably in line with standard Hungarian customer service in general except for this is not supposed to be a standard Hungarian restaurant or experience.

The food was good,
The service was very slow and we felt like they did us a favor,
(My wife had a birthday I added it to the reservation and nobody really cared) - that’s a bonus but from a top restaurant I was told Tokio is

I have been to this restaurant many times before, as this one of the best sushi restaurants in town. The food is outstanding, fresh and good quality, however my recent night dining here was very disappointing.
We had each one cocktail, some sushi and desert to share. The cheesecake – creme brulee had one small living worm on the top - most probably due to the fresh strawberry - and i have raised this to the waiter. Later the restaurent manager came to apologize, offered to get us a new desert.
I believe this is a very uncomfortable mistake, however absolutely understandable as the dish included fresh fruits, was not dissapointed about the fact of this failure, but the customer experience.
The price of the dish got removed from the overall bill, however other compensation would have been expected from a prestigious restaurant. I wasnt raising this request at the time, because i didnt wanted to ruin the evening with this discussion, however i have a regret about this and overall did not walk away from the restaurant with the same satisfaction as i have many times before.

They serve the best sushi in Budapest. Sparking wine list is impressive, Hungarian brand Kreinbacher is always a good choice.

The place is nice, the food was amazing but the cocktails not so great, we barely felt the alcohol and they were not the tastiest we ever tried. I booked the table for my birthday and I chose this is as the reason why we book the table. I would have expected from a nice gesture from customer point of view (as a shot of drink or a sweet from the menu from the house) at the end considering that we need to leave 13,5% from the check for the service. The tables were most of them too close, you do not have too much privacy..the waiters were nice, they were recommending us the food and the drinks, I can not complain about this but as I said, it was not anything outstanding from other restaurants to be worth 13,5% of the total bill which was not cheap at all, trust me!

Food was really good overall:
Karaage: was ok, but would not order again.
Kani udon: excellent
Sushis: excellent
Wines : excellent
Prices: overall, the full menu is a little bit pricey for a local, but probably you can get one of the best sushi here.

It was a nice evening at Tokio, the highlight of our dinner was the service, our host was a long black haired lady, unfortunately I forgot her name. She did really outstanding job during our dinner, offered wine a New Zealand one (her fav) which happened to be a perfect choice, also she was really attentive and she was always smiling which is extremely rare in Budapest restaurants. It was such service I only experienced in Michelin star restaurants in Budapest so far. Thank you for the service and help again.

Ambiance was nice, restaurant and bathrooms were clean. Host and staff were helpful explaining the menu and good choices. The sushi was fresh and delicious. Only negative is I think it’s expensive in comparison to some other sushi places around here.
