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.

Fun Evening With Friends at Tokio Joe

On our first night in Hong Kong on our honeymoon, we joined some college friends, living in HK,at this lively restaurant in Lan Kwai Fong for a fun evening. We had all sorts of well prepared sushi, and we received attentive service throughout the long, and ultimately boisterous evening.

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"

Come here if you want to overpay for not so good food and service. Nothing really that special. The sushi rolls are wannabe creations that all pretty much taste the same. Portions are not large. Beware of the drinks offerings in the beginning as they usually offer the most expensive ones! Some of the sushi we're quite salty. Don't sit... More

Might as well call it butter. One of the best sushi I ever had. I remember a great sushi place in the old Hing Kong airport, the airport where you flew into the city and were scared to crash into the building and the mountains.... I am talking about before they built the new one in Lantau. Anyway the service... More

This was a nice Resturant for vegetarians, the staff was good enough to discuss options. I don't remember the dishes, but we had a good dinner. Make sure you reserve a table in advance. And try a sparkling sake !

If you want some excellent, fresh, well prepared sushi in Hong Kong that will not break the bank, you better head to Tokio Joe. It's not cheap by all means but you get very good sushi in return. Beside the ery good fish and seafood sushi, don't miss the kobe beef roll.

Went to Tokio Joes for a weekday lunch. I tried to make a reservation but they were full however they had some seats at the counter. the food was good (not up to the standard in Japan but very few restaurants outside the country are), and was reasonably priced.

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.
