Excellent!

I've been here 3 or 4 times for lunch. It has always been fresh food, and great service. It's also a great value.

Loved looking at the photo depictions of the various foods they serve. I enjoyed my tofu dish, though it was a bit bland. My partner liked his sushi. I felt adventurous and tried the Black Sesame ice cream -- it was really good, highly unusual -- great in small doses. Very cool looking.

Food are creatively serve and delicious to my taste buds. Appetizers and entrées are in reasonable price and I love the deep fried ice cream for dessert. Ambiance is clean and friendly staff. Way to go on one of my favourite Japanese/ Asian restaurant in Saint John, NB.

I'm not one to leave many reviews but it is difficult to believe this restaurant is the number 2 restaurant in Saint John. Our experience is below. So we are in Saint John as a stop on our family vacation and settle on this restaurant because it was rated #2 on TripAdvisor for all restaurants in Saint John. The place... More

Sense of Tokyo is some of the best sushi I have ever had and I lived in Asia for 3 years. The availability of fresh fish in Saint John surely adds to the quality of the place. I am from Saint John and now live in the US, but I always make a point to visit Sense of Tokyo when... More

I started going to Sense of Tokyo when it opened. In fact, I was friends with the original owner and helped him come up with the name. All that side, the food has always been excellent and from recent experience, it's clear the food will always be excellent. A must visit if in, or near, the city!!

Heard some good things about this restaurant from friends and others reviews. I visited there twice this week. The first time I had the salmon teriyaki bento lunch. Lots of food. Included miso soup but no rice. Tempura was fresh. Salmon was flaky and cooked perfectly. California rolls were excellent. And really good miso soup. The second time I went... More

We were looking for a filling meal that would not take a long time to prepare so that we could get back home to do homework. We ordered the veg Obento box. This came with a soup the sushi and a roll or noodle and ice cream there was so much food I couldn't finish it all. Everything was beautifully... More
