Tokio Joe’s simple décor and friendly staff provide a relaxed and casual alternative to formal Japanese dining. Interior space is highlighted by wooden paper screens, natural wood and open sushi bar giving an airy feel. The ‘user friendly’ menu features traditional favourites and innovative creations with anemphasis on fresh sushi and sashimi. A must try are Joe’s Soft Shell Crab Rolls and deliciously fresh Spicy Toro Tartar.

We arrived late for our booking but the wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Seating wise, it is very typical HK style where you can hear the entire conversation of your neighbours. Food and drinks came quickly and the spicy seafood udon was very tasty. As was the pork katsu don. One... read more

The best Japanese food in the world. Even the Tomato served in the beginning as the Amuse bouche will blow you away! The Tuna Tartar is again the BEST in the world- must order. Tuna Carpaccio too! Warm Prawn tempura Sushi too! Everything was great! The chef is commendable having run this place for so many years, with the same... More

Tokio Joe is a lively and well-run place in the energetic jumble of Lan Kwai Fan. The food is excellent, especially the sushi. However, it is expensive....not quite like the prices of sushi in Tokyo, but high. We were also impressed by the attentive and polite service. However the place filled up, it became so loud it was difficult to... More

I don't know quite how to describe it but this is just unbelievable Japanese - the quality is excellent & the prices reasonable. The service and attention to ensuring a quality experience are second to none. Master Niki creates a great atmosphere & above a bustling crowd sometimes has to lift his voice to master his sue chefs to keep... More

We were looking forward to an evening of great food at Tokio Joe's and surely got some excellent sushi and sashimi. But what we got also was a whole lot of attitude from the host at the restaurant. For some reason, he was impatient and frustrated with even simple questions. Yes, the place was buzzing with people in large groups... More

I've been a regular customer of Tokio Joe for more than 10 years. I almost always go there for dinner with 2 very good friend of mine, one of whom is a loyal customer. To be honest, the food at Tokio Joe is by no means the best or even outstanding. However, because of my friend, we receive special treatment.... More

The atmosfere is very pleasant and the food is excellent, especially the " nego toro temaki " prepared by Ajun is outstanding. We come over 10 years to Tokio Joe and we feel very " at home"

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
