Sunday Buffet at Tokyo

There is always a lot of food on the Sunday afternoon buffet at Tokyo Restaurant. There is also a variety of oriental dishes along with some American favorites (green beans, potatoes, and carrots.)

Thanks to this fine restaurant, our family enjoyed a delicious evening meal on Easter Sunday. The service was great, the food very tasty, the menu extensive. Everything was fresh, and served beautifully. I highly recommend a stop here!

We found ourselves in Spruce Pine on a beautiful fall Sunday at lunch time. From a drive through town we found several of the restaurants noted in Trip Advisor closed on Sunday. It seemed in the downtown area you could choose Mexican or Asian. Both had lots of cars outside. The Tokyo had a buffet with quite a number and... More

I used to work at toyko a few years ago. The cooks are really nasty, they never wash their hands, ever. The food everyone is eating is old and not stored right. They use their bare hands to do everything. Sometimes the owner tells the dishwasher to not use soap when washing pans and dishes. They never clean the bathrooms.... More

We eat at Tokyo several times a month. My only criticism is when I go for buffet lunch they don't keep asuch food out as they should, sometimes you have to wait for them to refill..but its usually worth the wait!!

We stopped in her to eat and we all ate Sweet and Sour Chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein, Teriyaki Chicken and Shrimp, and Hibachi Chicken and Shrimp. It was fantastic!

We had a not so great experience at this restaurant… It took the waitress almost ten minutes to take our order, and there were maybe 15 other patrons in the room, most of which were enjoying the buffet. No one checked to see if we needed drink refills or anything like that either. When we checked out, the young lady... More

We had some hopes for nice Asian food when we walked in. I don't remember exactly what I ordered, but I distinctly remember that it had the taste of having been cooked in rancid oil. Service seemed a bit slow and inattentive. I ordered a beer and the bottle was just plopped on the table without a glass.

We went there as a family to eat and everyone got their favorite dish. The food was tasty and filling. The staff kept our glasses filled and that is a plus in my book. I wished the staff could speak a bit more English, as long as I have been going there, that could have been accomplished by now, I... More
