Birthday- when making the reservation I had typed it was Johns Birthday. When we arrived the hostess asked us who’s celebrating a birthday. It would’ve been nice if the hostess read the comment and acknowledged his birthday- it’s a small detail in the evening but it was our 1st impression of a restaurant we attended the 1st time. We also would have appreciated more instruction or detail about cooking our steak on the stone. Overall good food. We enjoyed the variety offered.

Fun menu! Perks of happy hour everyday 4-6pm 50% select items! The ramen burger was amazing all of the way from the tender juicy beef patty to the unique ramen bun! Take a friend and make an evening out of it, you won’t be disappointed!

Service was really excellent. Staff was great with our kids. Great cocktails, I loved my margarita. Our favorite appetizer is the nachos! Small restaurant, but they do great at keeping it going. Love the ambiance.

Nothing special. Food was ok, service not great. No bathroom in the place so you have to go outside to Shaw's next door and use their bathroom.

We have been customers of Tokio Pub for over 8 years and we used to enjoy the experience there. Tonight, we had the worst service of our many years of coming to this establishment. We ordered food with the appetizer and it took over 30-45 minutes to receive two roll orders. We were on our second bottle of wine by the time it came out. This is not the standard for this restaurant, but maybe this is the new standard as new wait staff tonight. I could not even find a manager to talk to at the end of our dinner. And for those that come here, it can be quite busy. Tonight was not busy at all! Only three tables occupied when we left. We avoided dessert because we wanted to leave because it was not a pleasant experience!
We always complement and point out the good. I tried to offer a compliment to the only server who noticed we needed help.
We used to love Tokio Pub. Have to say after this experience, we don’t think we will be back.

Great food and service! My son and I love to share a variety of things from sushi to ramen and Tokio Pub is a great place to do that! Everything we have had has been delicious! I love that if we can make it for Happy Hour many of our favorites are 1/2 price which makes it even more enjoyable! Our server was awesome! We wanted to order a dessert but wanted to make sure there were no nuts as my son is allergic not only did he double check with the kitchen he brought a form back that was filled out by the chef indicating he was notified of our concern and that he confirmed that it was nut-free. Both he and the kitchen took our concern very seriously and I was very appreciative!! One of our new favorite places!

I went to Tokio Pub recently for the second time (the first time was over the summer). Both times, the service was incredibly slow, almost painfully. My most recent visit was for my mom's 77th birthday. When we were seated and ordered drinks and some appetizers, it took over 15 minutes to get our drinks and even longer for the appetizers. From the time we were seated, ordered and received our entrees, it took over and hour and a half. I'm not sure if they were understaffed for a Wednesday evening, but it was very difficult to get our server's attention and at one point someone from our table had to go to her. At one point, a busser came to clear our plates and he asked if we were finishing eating, to which we informed him that we hadn't even received our entrees yet. Anything else we needed (i.e. soy sauce, utensils) took fifteen minutes. All in all, for a party of six, we were there for nearly three hours. The food was mediocre at best and not worth the wait times. Am never coming here again.

The food was expensive for what you get. We got the kids ramen burger and it was literally one bite size burger for $7. The adult ramen burger was so bland and non exciting. The sushi was only ok, way too much avocado on top! Tacos were nothing special and also small portions. We were disappointed, the menu items looked fun and exciting but the execution was not good! 👎🏽🤬

We Love Tokio Pub, we’ve coming here for 7yrs(?). We always see a familiar face working. I don’t think we have ever had a bad experience. It used to be out date night spot, now that the kids are older we let them join us!!! Our kids are 7 & 14 and there is something for everyone.

Tokio Pub's Sunday Special is the best kept secret in the Northwest Suburbs.
The value for your dollar is excellent. All their Sushi is 50% off. It's really a very good deal.
We have been their several times with good service. Today, the service was way below par during our visit.

We have been to Tokio Pub many times, but this was by far the worst meal we have ever had here. It took forever to get our food and there were multiple instances of our food missing. It appeared our server forgot to put in parts of our order. Getting a to go box was also a comedy of errors with busboys and the server running around the restaurant with boxes. Never did the manager come over to apologize or was there any offer to take things off the bill. We are loyal Lettuce Entertain You customers and loyal Tokio Pub patrons, but this is making us think twice about visiting again.

Really great atmosphere and food! We loved it all! We were there during Happy Hour so we were able to try more things since they were half off...really enjoyed everything. Service was excellent as well.

My only gripe would be that you have to walk through the restaurant and into the steakhouse next door to use the bathroom. That was aggravating.

All in all, great time. Would go back

Our server was excellent! He ran through all of the menu items with my girlfriend and I and was very attentive! The food was really good, however, there are not enough gluten free options to get a satisfying meal here. We got a few appetizers then went somewhere else for dinner. The atmosphere was cool for hanging out but not for an intimate dinner as most of the tables are within inches of each other.

Everything from our waiter to the food and ambiance were fabulous. Our waiter took his time and explained the menu to us (first timers). The food was layered with flavors, very different from anything else I have tried in the past. I loved the chicken tacos as well as the chicken fried rice. The drinks were fabulous. The happy hour menu makes the experience very affordable. We will definitely be back.

Great place and never knew it was here. Menu limited at lunch but very, very good food. Bang Bang calamari are DEVINE. I opted for the 3 mini tacos for my entree (they are little!) but I was full because he had apps. The fish one WAS AMAZING, but seriously they were all delish!

Decided to go for Valentine’s Day/Birthday Celebration. It was hard to find parking so we used the garage, pretty clean for a snowy day, no sidewalk issues. We had a reservation and were seated right away, service was prompt and server was very nice and attentive.

Food was good, miso soup was great, BBQ nachos were really good, Sushi was great as well. My wife had the ramen and we thought it was a bit salty, little disappointed with the Surf and Turf special they had, while it was unique, it was underwhelming for the price.

Overall a good experience!
