Pricey but nice food

Located in Foster City. The food is good, portions are on the small side, considering its location. The prices are a bit high.

We love Tokies. The sushi and entrees are wonderful. We really like the tuna pokie, which is spicy and makes a great appetizer. We also love the dynamite roll and the spicy tuna roll. They have the best tempura and great teriyaki sauce. My only negative is that they charge extra for brown rice. We go almost every Friday night.... More

Tokies has always been a great place to eat. Sashimi and sushi freshly made. Some delicious entrees and love the combos. Not too noisy - small booths or sit at the sushi bar.

I have eaten there often and the food is always good, It is popular so sometimes there is a wait. Friendly wait staff. I didn't feel it was higher than other Japanese restaurants of comparable quality.

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!
