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.

Very nice atmosphere, had a 20 minute wait for a party of 3 on a Saturday evening (so you know its good). Nice, easy to read menus, very tasty food - enjoyed it all.

The sushi was tasty and the chicken/beef teriyaki were big enough for my 2 kids to share. My cousin's grilled mackerel was very juicy and delicious without being overly fishy. My husband loved the flan. The service was exceptional. The waiter misunderstood my cousin's order and was apologetic and made things right when we pointed out the error. He also... More
