Excellent birthday party restaurant!

Maybe it is more lively in the evening?
We were the only 2 in the restaurant for lunch!
4 more arrived before we left.
Thought about sushi freshness with so little turnover....

Food is consistently good. Service is spotty. Server disappeared too often at times. Not surprising, but at least refill drinks without having to be asked to do so. Other than that there's not much to do.

Don’t even waste your time going to this place! They only care about your money. Service was so terrible we literally walked out after explaining three times to waiter/ cook or family member of the restaurant we had been waiting over an hour at the table to get our food cooked. we just paid for our drinks and left. They don’t care anything about the health or safety of their customers Just cooking shellfish right there while customers has allergies and will sit three separate parties together at the same table not allowing any space for social distance. It’s not clean at all.

Food is always good. Service drops off when busy, which was the case this time. Kind of have to pick your spots, otherwise can turn into a long evening. For some that’s part of the experience. For others who like to get in and out it may not be what you are hoping for

Great food and nice service. A little loud compared to other hibachi places but I think that's the crowd they're going for. Food was the highlight for sure

All was well with our experience at Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse. The food just didn't quite live up to the expectation of traditional hibachi.

Food is always consistently good. Service is hit and miss sometimes, depending on how busy the restaurant is. Server was excellent this time. Attentive to our needs, which basically is refilling water, but that's all that I hope for anyway. Got us in and out in a timely manner

Food is good but service and ambiance is lacking. Also please note that the hibachi area is what appears to be full seating capacity and the 6 foot social distancing gudelines are not possible.

The food was great! We just felt rushed. The minute we sat down the waiter wanted to know what we wanted to drink. 2 minutes later he wanted to know what we wanted to eat. Like we didn't even get a chance to just take in the moment and the experience. Now, I know next time to just order take out.

Waitstaff is curt and rude. Asked for a knife and it was like we were asking for a million dollars! Never came back to ask if we wanted more drinks, or needed anything. Hibachi chef must have been a rookie.. Not much of any kind of show from him at all. Noodles were barely cooked and had no flavor whatsoever.. Felt really rushed throughout this meal!. Won't be going back again!

The main chef is very hospitable but that is the only plus to my visit. The servers were incompetent and very rude.

The service was horrible and my salad was frozen. I didn’t make a big deal about it during the meal but on my way out I told management about the frozen salad only to be told it’s supposed to be cold. I understand that everyone is doing their best given the pandemic but bad service and the flippant remark has made me decide not to return.

We have been here many time before but am very upset that during the Covid out break Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse @ Chestnuthill had no concept of their social responsibility. The steakhouse was filled with college kids all packed like a sardine in a box; with no social distancing. The Mgmt made no effort and participated in packing the folks at any table within the restaurant. The food was terrible as clearly they were not staffed for so many folks. I should have filled a complaint with City of Newton health department and Chestnut Hill mall’s landlord!

I have no interest in supporting local business that acts so irresponsibly!

Only one other table had customers when we arrived, which was nice for us. I’m assuming that Tokyo is struggling, along with so many other establishments, but we’re trying to support as best we can. Food is always consistently good. Service is fine. Decent night out.

They weren’t open. I drove 15 minutes to get to them. They were closed. The fact that Opentable was booking for them while they weren’t even open and I wasted my time going there is pathetic.
