While visiting Cape May, we found ourselves craving some Asian fare and happened to pass by Tokyo on the way to Bed Bath & Beyond and Walmart. We decided to stop by on New Year's Eve for dinner. It was quite crowded - always a good sign. We were not expecting much but were pleasantly surprised... read more

We have been going to Toyko since it opened. We have tried other places in town but always come back to Toyko . We believe their sushi is the best in town! We love the smoked eel rolls,the Philly, and the Cape May rolls. The miso soup was a little weak this time but the calamari appetizer (one of the... More

Two thumbs up for Tokyo. This is a great option for a glorious change from the usual Jersey shore options - Italian or Seafood. The restaurant is quiet and tranquil. They have some interesting tables along the back wall. Those tables let some folks sit Japanese style. I enjoyed the Salmon, not at all fishy. Their salad dressing was quite... More

Tokyo in Rio Grande always, always serves up the freshest most delicious sushi I have ever had. Everywhere I travel am always looking for a good restaurant for sushi and have never run across better than right here in Rio Grande, New Jersey.

For a seashore community you would think that a Japanese restaurant would be out of place. It's not. A wonderful alternative to all of the sea food, burgers, and pizza establishments in the area. The first thing you notice is the cleanliness of the restaurant. The sushi chefs are visible a nice touch. The staff is attentive, the food, while... More

Our favorite go to place for sushi when we are in the wildwood area. Sushi is always fresh and presented very nicely. This restaurant always has special rolls on the board when you enter, make sure you read them as they are not displayed in the menu. Very clean, pleasant atmosphere, byob and they take reservations.

I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant with my daughter and her husband who insisted that we go here since this would have been their second time. I was reluctant at first. I am very glad we went. The staff, Japanese/American of course was very attentive. The food quality was excellent and plentiful. In fact we each had... More
