Unfortunately, I find this place to be very inconsistent. The tastes are generally good, but the servings are not consistent. Some visits yield large cuts of fish while others yield small pieces that leave me hungry after the meal. I even ordered sushi with brown rice which ended up being a mistake - the rice was watery and tasteless. My... More

Since Toshi remodeled their restaurant several years ago, it has become a favorite of ours for a light dinner of edamame and sushi. We prefer to sit at the sushi bar where the chefs will often provide a complementary appetizer and we get to watch the skillful preparation of both the Sanshoku sashimi dinner and our favorite Summer roll.

We enjoyed the happy hour sushi and appetizer menu at Toshi the other day. The food was great and the happy hour pricing is an excellent deal on the items which are included.

We tried eating there last night but after being seated, near the water stand, we were not even acknowledged by our waiter for 15 minutes. when he came over to take our order he said 'i will be right back'. we did not give him the chance, as we got up and left. we also walked right by the 'hostess'...

Sushi is good, fresh, well made. Staff is very aloof and cold. They do not make you feel welcome, but as an interruption to their day. There are other, better sushi bars in the area

When you are in the mood for sushi, the decision is "do I drive a distance for great sushi, or have good sushi right around the corner?" If you are not up to the drive, Toshi is nice option. The quality of the food is consistently good, but never quite makes great. The decor is pleasant, but like the sushi,... More

Good food, excellent value. service is exceptional. there is alot of competition in the area and I think this establishment is worth a night out. Good specials and dinner combo's too! If you sit at the mezzanine you can watch the sushi chefs create.

We've been there a few times, but not regularly. The wait staff gives the impression that if you don't know them from earlier visits, you are not worth their time. The food was good, I suppose, but the poor service drove us away. And, by the way, we are not service snobs. Usually, we give the waiters the benefit of... More

I go for lunch a couple times a month and I'm never disappointed. The bento boxes are always filling and tasty without being too salty. The sushi always tastes fresh too. The servers are all very nice and efficient. The restaurant is decorated in the typical Japanese minimalist fashion, which I love. Toshi's is hands down the best Japanese food... More

Toshi has the best Japanese food in Connecticut. Always fresh, always delicious. Sit at the counter, and they will make you exactly what you want too.
