    We almost didn’t dine here since many previous reviews mentioned the extremely slow service. We had a later reservation, and chose to give it a shot! We had a great experience, and were so thrilled to see the Buffalo chicken bao buns back on the menu! Food and drinks were delicious! Overall, we were in and out in an hour!

    Hit them on a Saturday night before a movie. It was not crowded. Food quality is still not where it used to be 3 years ago. Our food came out luke warm and we waited a long time in between getting our pot stickers appetizer and the main dishes. My rainbow roll was bland and they used imitation crabmeat. The menu said it was crab but it was not and you'd expect it to be real because they share a kitchen with Shaw's Crab House. Even our beignets were barely warm. The bright spot on the menu and meal was the soy ginger chicken with fried ramen noodles. Not in a rush to return.

    I read other reviews and saw many people complained about slow service. I took this with a grain of a salt, figured it was just a few Karens, and decided to give Tokio Pub a try anyway. We were going to the 9:30 show at the Improv and wanted to eat nearby but didn’t want to eat at the mall and this fit the bill. LISTEN TO THE REVIEWS! The food was delicious, but the service was BEYOND SLOW. Our meal lasted almost 2 hours and would’ve probably been longer but we finally told the waiter we needed to leave and if our food wasn’t ready soon we just needed to leave. Amazingly out food came out just a few minutes after we said that. Our waiter kept saying the kitchen was backed up but it was more than that. Even getting iced tea or water took 20 min and you can’t even blame the bar or the kitchen for that. We sat on the patio, which is covered, so the atmosphere was nice and the food was good, although the menu is fairly limited, so maybe look ahead of time to see if there is something that looks appealing to you. If you are looking for a chill, sit and talk for two hours, and don’t care if your waiter checks on you, kind of meal then this is your place. Otherwise it’s a hard pass.

    Great experience! Were in the area and stopped by. Food was fresh, flavorful and rather fun. Hot rock appetizer was a new twist. Ramen had many layers of flavors that work perfectly together. Then there was our server (forgot her name). She made everything come together with her personality and recommendations.

    The meal was amazing the sushi is delicious!!! We ended up only trying one cocktail because it took over 30min for the drinks and our server was not very nice. He was very rude and spoke down to our table acting like we were being an inconvenience.

    Came for a Mother’s Day lunch. Food was excellent. Service was ok. We asked for our daughters entree to be sent out with appetizers. The server acknowledged this and walked away. He never really came back. They sent out the sushi way ahead of the appetizers and sent her food last. We asked about non alcoholic drinks and the server basically walked away without answering us. Another server made us our drinks.

    We had a reservation which was good. It looks like this was originally part of Shaw's Crab House, and doesn't have it's own bathroom so be prepared to walk through a good portion of Shaw's and up a couple of flights of stairs to use the bathrooms (which were very dirty and out of toilet paper in most stalls by the way). They seemed to be short handed, and our server was overwhelmed. Our appitizers came out with our entrees, and it took almost 20 minutes to get our first round of drinks. The food itself was tasty. We had the calamari and dumplings for appetizers, two in our group ordered ramen which was very good as were the unique ramen burgers. The drinks once they arrived were made well and strong, which was good for how expensive they were. Overall we really enjoyed the food and we will be back.

    The service was probably the best thing they had as the food was only ok. The fillet mignon hot stone was great, but we were able to control the doneness of that meal. The rest were honestly overcooked or over fried. The ramen broth was tasty though, but the pork was very tough. Their ramen burger was something, the patty was good, but the fried ramen bun lacks flavor, and it was just greasy noodles. The beignets were over fried. The espresso ice cream was good though. And again, the service was phenomenal, or server was really nice. The ambience is promising, but the food was only ok. Not terribad, but not the best either.

    For a ramen place the ramen was really bad. Clumped together and oily. Another at my table got ramen as well and has the same issue. The service was good and they tried to recover, just poor quality ramen. The other items were decent. Will not go back.

    Great meal, great service, great experience. We went in with no expectations. Small menu, but everything is great. Service is the best kind of awkward/friendly. If you like great food, but don’t want to be overwhelmed by the ‘restaurant experience’ and just want to enjoy a good meal with the people you came with and relax, this is the place for you.

    Food was ok and over priced on the amount they served u. Also they had a surcharge of 3% which I felt was not necessary because your tipping the wait staff and the food I’m sure was up charged. Over all I would give 2 1/2 stars out of 5. Try it once to see if u like it. I thought it was ok. Probably wouldn’t go back.

    I miss the old Tokio Pub! It was our favorite date night place, then it became our Favorite Family Restaurant, now it just doesn't do it for us anymore. Our Favorite items are off the menu. The menu is a 1/3 of what it used to be. The drinks have changed. I don't remember the cement floor being in there, it was cold & damp. We had a less than stellar experience the last time and thought we would try it one more time. Unfortunately it didn't live up to our old memories of the place.

    I feel like the more I eat at Shaw’s, and now this associated side room experiment, the more I feel “meh”. It’s not that the food is bad, or the service or the menu. It’s just not as good as I want it to be. Specific to Tokio, it’s basically Shaw’s sushi, Raman and a burger served on a Raman bun. That’s it, the entire menu. I’m not certain it will warrant a rematch for us.

    We had a wonderful time and a great dinner at Tokio Pub. My husband and I shared the hot rocks filet and tuna. The ginger sauce and cucumber salad were great accompaniments. I had the tuna roll and my husband tried the ramen burger. We both enjoyed our meal. Our waiter, Ethan, was awesome. He was attentive, helpful with the menu and very charming. We will certainly be back.

    Tokio Pub has always been one of our favorite restaurants. So, we were disappointed to find that the menu had been changed so much-probably due to the serious pressure on the industry. We were expecting to find the wonderful variety of fusion tacos but they are no longer on the menu. Our server suggested that there's a different menu of Taco Tuesday but we there a different day, The food is still good but not great. I hope the improving weather will help...

    This was our first visit and while the food wasn't awful, nothing stood out. It was very average which surprised me. We love LEY restaurants but this did not hit the mark that the rest of their places do. The menu is small, not much to choose from. When asked if they have a gluten free menu, a small laminated card was brought out with a handful of options, one crossed out. It was smaller than an index card. If you're going to have a small menu, you should perfect what is on it. I ordered sushi rolls and honestly, the ones I've made at home and ordered from Marianos we're better.
