Driving through Salem and our hotel was close by. You get what you pay for. The meat was very tough and the chicken reminded me of the stuff they use for Chinese food that is breaded. I love sushi of all kinds but did not trust it. My daughter told me one time to only get sushi at a busy... More

While it is a semi fast-food restaurant, the food is pretty good. Certainly recommended over the usual like McD, etc.

Food is decent, comparable to the price. Price is very cheap but atmosphere and service is what's lacking. Place looks run down. Overall rating is a 3.

This place used to be one of my favorites but now that the management has changed the service and food have gone downhill. There are still a few good employees there but overall it is not worth your time. Good eat somewhere else.

The hibachi chicken was ok. The noodles were great, but the chicken kind of bland. I love their crab/ cheese stuffed wontons. (Can't remember the actual name.). Service has always been quick and nice. It's a nice change to fast food.

Had dinner here while staying in Salem on business. Pretty typical Asian joint. Nice folks running the place. Got the "House Special" hibachi dinner. Enjoyable meal, nothing special. Place appeared clean and there were several customers enjoying dinner, so I figure theplace is fairly popular with the locals. On business by yourself, and paying your own way? This is not... More

One of the big problems about American-Japanese food is that it's always really expensive. Never fear, for Tokyo Express is here with absolutely heaven-sent food. Huge portions, always go away with half my dinner in the box. All for under $10. On the weekends they have an all-you-can-eat buffet. This restaurant was my (and my friends') go-to every weekend in... More

The restaurant is a little small and felt crowded. TIP: Ask for another seat if you are sat next to the wooden beams. The beams make things crowded. The cooked food was very good. I was not impressed with the bar. But I'm not a sushi fan. I would eat there again, but it's not considered fine dining.

We got there @ 12:30 pm on Sun. We were standing waiting for a table for 6.. A family of 3 came in and said they needed table for 6.. They were seated and we stood for 10 more mins. When this place gets busy it is sad.. There was no food on the small buffet at all and people... More
