Great food and value

Great sushi and great prices. This place is tucked away in an unassuming strip mall in Foster City - we got in about an hour before close and had a wonderful meal. Server was super nice and very attentive. We did some sashimi (albacore tuna and salmon) and a handful of rolls (spider, Foster... read more

The ambience here is great, feels very Japanese. The food is really good, with a wide range of choices. And good choices for those that don't want anything

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.
