Our 9 year old grandson asked for teppanyaki for dinner. The chef was so entertaining and the food was superb! We had chicken and steak. Other guests at the table said it was the best lobster ever. The chef also prepared a butter for the lobster which was described as superb! Make reservations for a table and enjoy a wonderful... More

My family and I are from NC and i guess we are used to the fabulous Kanki Japanese steakhouse here. We were visiting my husbands family and they recommend this place. I thought this was going to be the greatest food ever from the way they spoke about it. The soup had a funny taste and my hibachi chicken was... More

We met up with another couple we like to go out with for some Teppanyaki, something that was a change of pace. I really enjoyed it. The second you walk into Tokyo Garden you encounter a very beautiful koi pond. My step-daughters really got a kick out of the fish. Our chef was awesome! If you can request someone, ask... More

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. He made our dinner experience memorable. The food was wonderful and very tasty. The wait service was very attentive and kept our drinks filled. The only thing that we... More

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

Before we left Bakersfield in the summer of 2008 it was not uncommon for us to eat here 1 or 2 times a week!! We got hooked on their lunch menu! 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
