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

We eat here every time we stay in the area. How can you beat their $7.99 Friday night buffet? They put out small quantities at a time so the food is fresh. The u-peel shrimp were tasty and there is a good selection of main dishes. The salmon special that they offer often is very tasty, as well as the... More

I had a hankerin' for some Asian cousine and came across the Tokyo restaurant as I was exploring what Spruce Pine had to offer down town. The service was wonderful, the young ladies were very attentive, but the food was just ok. It just did not stand out. I had the General's chicken and it did not have the crispy... More

I didn't expect to find this fare around the area, Its a nice little place, the staff doesn't speak English extreamly well. The food is ok. all in all its worth a trip in, though it wouldn't be a weekly trip for us

The lunch I had at the Tokyo was very enjoyable, it was buffet, and everything on it was fresh and hot, We were greeted as we entered, and served quickly. It's not a large restaurant, but cosy and very friendly. It's right in the heart of lovely Spruce Pine, N.C., a beautiful Mountain Town, and after eating, we had the... More

This place is the best Chinese or oriental food you're going to get in the area without traveling to Boone or Asheville. This is a very remote rural area with few options available to you. That said, I rate the buffet 3 stars, and would rate it higher if the food were more original and the seating more comfortable. I... More

Theres great food, at a low cost, I eat there often. There's a buffet that I crave all the time. They even have a website you can order off of. So if you don't like to talk, then go on their web page and order. See the menu/ pics and everything. The waitress's are really nice too.
