Good locally owned restaurant. Recommend reservations if going on weekend. One of few places that serve Yosenabe. Pricier than other Japanese restaurants. They have Tatami rooms for a different experience, not recommended for those who may have back problems since there's no chairs.

We had dinner here with friends last December. It was our first visit in many years. The restaurant was full, as I remember it always was. I had soup and sushi, my wife had soup, salad and salmon teriyaki. It was excellent, better than I remembered, and better the the other local Japanese retaurants I've dined at.

The sushi is fresh and excellent. There are 4 sushi chefs including Akira san and Victor san. Victor is the owner. The ambiance is enjoyable. The sushi is excellent, on true sushi rice, with a touch of wasabi appropriately between fish and rice, and the nori is great. If you ask the chef to make when he thinks best, you... More

To me, Tokie's is the Japanese restaurant in the Bay Area. It is authentic. The owner still prepares the food. The receptionist is friendly and the servers are friendly.

My wife and I went here on a recommendation from a few of our friends. We were not impressed, compared to other Sushi places we have been. We were placed in a booth, no problem. We were waited on a female server who had very limited English speaking skills. We ordered our food, but were not impressed with the portions... More

Food ranges from good to very good! Service is warm and friendly! However, the restaurant is somewhat overrated- certainly not the best restaurant in Foster City. Matter of fact Shiki is quite better- foodwise!

We don't eat sushi but their teriyaki is great and salad dressing. However, I understand it is the place if you like sushi! Family owned!

We have been going there for at least 35 years, ever since they opened. Their sushi is great. Victor make us everything. He just keeps making it until we say we've had enough. I'm going in a couple of weeks for lunch with some friends.

And still the best. Family run, clean, decorated decently. You can hear your companions speaking, which is a good thing these days. Food is good and not overly expensive. There's a good reason this local establishment survives for decades surrounded by a dying shopping mall: good food, good service, good price.
