Mediocre

Woould not recommend or go back. Prices would be appropriate for a higher quality food product. Unfortunately, quality was poor to average which makes this a double samuri slash to the mouth and wallet. I tried three very basic rolls; spicy tuna, spicy scallop, and salmon avacado. Scallops... read more

Sushi was warm and the service way under middle. Forgot my beer and I had to flag and call multiple times. First time I give a place 1 star.

We found the soba tempura to be very authentic and a good value for "airport" centered food. Service was quick and friendly. The meal provide just what we needed before the long overseas journey ahead. Oh yeah - beer was also reasonably priced!

My family and I stayed in San Francisco. We went to the Tomokazu Japanese Restaurant in Burlingame. The atmosphere and food was good and abundant. We would go back again.

I won't go as far as to say this restaurant is operating under false pretenses. After all, it does serve what most people would consider "Japanese cuisine." But as best I can tell no one who works there is Japanese nor understands much about authentic Japanese food. All of the employees were speaking in Mandarin Chinese, although the waitresses were...

We went here for a birthday celebration with a party of 14. The service was great and the food great quality. We had a fusion of japaneese/chineese food. Some sushi/sashimi and more. I will definitely come back.

Went to Tomokazu's airport joint. Small restaurant, cramped seating, and not-so-friendly staff. If you look at their menu, they expect you to dine in. If you have luggage, they get upset and tell you to move it. For the airport, the food is average. It's a little more expensive as well. If you're craving Japanese though, it'll somewhat suffice.

My wife's uncle took us to Tomokazu in Burlingame during our first visit to San Francisco from Canada. Tomokazu is a big Japanese restaurant owned by two Chinese business partners and run by Chinese staff. The restaurant was surprisingly very busy on a Monday night. The food was good and fresh with good-sized portion with very nice service. A good... More

We visited the airport branch of this restaurant and enjoyed a very good quick sushi and soup before our flight. Small and crowded though still a good feed.

I ordered the Udon with Chicken. After two bites of this almost $10 meal, I abandoned it. The chicken was overcooked, tasteless and fatty. The broth was bland. My husband had the Udon with Beef, it was also bad. I ended up getting a sandwich from another kiosk.
