It is slim pickings for Asian cooking in the MetroWest area of Boston. Have given up on the places in Wellesley despite good reviews. blank, greasy, salty, and just uninteresting choices. Have been to Shangai Tokyo four times and while not special enough for a long drive, we do go the extra 10 minutes to get a good meal. The... More

The decor looks like it was thrown together yesterday but this place makes some incredible sushi at a really moderate price. If you get the chance to stop in, their Black Dragon roll is my favorite thing to order.

I thought I would try this restaurant since the reviews were pretty good. I would say I had an average experience. The restaurant was full so many do like it. Our waitress was so impatient and was rushing us through every single order item. That was not relaxing. I wanted to try the Peking Ravioli since the reviews were so... More

It's about time I review this place considering the number of times I've eaten here or gotten takeout! The best place in metrowest for fresh, yummy and reasonably-priced sushi. Chinese food is awesome as well. Only one small nit--pad Thai not up to par, but that's not the specialty here. Very friendly service. Highly recommend.

My wife and I love sushi, and Shanghai Tokyo makes the best in Metrowest. Sit down is easy, as the friendly staff remains attentive avoiding delays and keeping diners moving. Food, likewise, is prepared quickly by talented staff. The result? The best sushi, without a long wait like some other places I can name. ENJOY!

We go here regularly for sushi. It is fresh and delicious. The Chinese food is also very good. This is our go-to Asian restaurant.

In the context of suburban Boston, this is a pretty great Chinese/Sushi joint. The food is fresh, well prepared and good value. Don't expect fine dining - and if you want to travel closer to the city you'll find better - but for Natick this is very good.

The Sushi is very good. I must admit most of the orders we do is carry out. Shanghai Tokyo is fairly plain in decor and small but you can hear your own conversations which is not the case in some spots. Try the Idaho sushi, it is fried sweet potato, excellent.

This is our favorite place to pick up good, reasonably priced sushi and good chinese food. You can order the sushi by the piece, it's good quality, and done well. Our favorite is the spicy tuna roll. And the biggest advantage is it won't break the bank. As importantly, the owners and workers there are all very nice and courteous,... More

This is a regular family sized restaurant with better than expected food. With a simple contemporary furnishings, The dishes are consistently well prepared, though the service can get backed up with take-out orders and customers. Often there is a small line for the limited seating and there are only two spots for tables of 8-10. The prices are modest and... More
