One of the Best Japanese Restaurants in Bakersfield

This was the second time having dinner here. We were celebrating 2 family birthdays and seated at the Teppanyaki tables. The Teppanyaki chef was wonderful in his cooking and showman skills.

Went there for lunch and had both the Teppan and Sushi. This review is mixed. The Teppan was absolutely below average even for Bakersfield Standards. The fried rice was salty and the vegetables were few and overcooked. The sauces you get to dip your meat and vegetables were less tasty than at ShoGun. The sushi was surprisingly OK, although a...

The rolls are very good. The wasabi is very fresh and tasty. We even got an order of Tako Sunomono which was excellent.

Went to try Tokyo Garden to try their sushi which was at best average. The price was OK for sushi but prefer Izumo which is in the same neighborhood for a better price. Decor was dark and the restaurant loud. There are some Teppan tables - might try that next time but was not impressed with sushi - seems to... More

The 2 of us could eat for $20 and have a fantastic meal! The dinner's are also amazing! Either by menu or having tepanyaki, the food is wonderful! If... More

If you like Tappanoci (ok, I can't spell) this is the place to go. Many locals consider it to be the best in town.

Yes, they were special rolls at Tokyo Gardens. On this trip we shared the Yellow Submarine, Tiger's Tail roll and the Crunch Roll. All three were great! My favorite was the Yellow Submarine, my husbands was Tiger's Tail. The Crunch Roll had a nice kick to it too. Would be happy to go back again and again.

This is dinner and a show!!! The table cooking is delicious and fun!! We have tried the shrimp, chicken, filet mignonette, and the new York steak. All very good!! The fried rice is excellent but you can also get steamed rice. The salad comes with dressing...I'm not a fan of it but the rest of my family is. The soup... More

I was recently back in Bakersfield and went to Tokyo Garden and it was as good as I remembered. The sushi was fresh and delicious and the service was great.
