Description: Tokio Joe’s simple décor and friendly staff provide a relaxed and casual alternative to formal Japanese dining. Interior space is highlighted by wooden paper screens, natural wood and open sushi bar giving an airy feel. The ‘user friendly’ menu features traditional favourites and innovative creations with anemphasis on fresh sushi and sashimi. A must try are Joe’s Soft Shell Crab Rolls and deliciously fresh Spicy Toro Tartar.

“Good as always”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Tokyo joe never disappoint me.....is consistent, good quality, nice service and always with a nice atmosphere....and you pay for it!!!
Don't bother your self trying to order...let the chef do it for you...and make sure to get the spicy tuna in the green leaf, that's a must of this place.
they have a nice sake selection...but watch out some of them are unexpectedly expensive.

“Not value for money at all!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I have been to this fashionable Japanese restaurant many times before, but I have never had to pay for myself. I knew it was expensive but this time it really hurts (my pocket)! Wen I looked at the menu there wasn't any set menu at dinner time. The sushi sets were way overpriced. It would have been fine if the portion wasn't so small. I ordered a sushi set for HKD360, and was served 12 pieces of sushi (incl rolls). It hardly satisfied my hunger, but I dared not order any more because a simple 2 piece nigiri costs more than HKD90. Ouch. The service was excellent and attentively but the owner shouldn't serve portion like it was nouvelle cuisine. A glass of Sauvignon Blanc (house wine) was HKD95. If you are being entertained by all means go to Tokio Joe, but if you are paying for yourself, think again. There are a lot of better sushi restaurants outside of the Lan Kwai Fong precinct.

“good japanese food. you pay for it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

a bit pricey, yes. consistent good food, good service; yes. if you want a good night out; book with tokio joe and gear up your fiscal preparedness. $300 hkd per person at least. at least. some food you will realize; you want more. plus you end up staying longer than you thought (again because of good food and good service).
