I lived in Japan for 3 years, a very long time ago. Most "Japanese" restaurants require a stretch of the imagination to allow me to recall excellent dining experiences in that country. The Tokyo Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Westlake Hills took me back in time. The food is superior, the tastes sometimes subtle, sometimes assertive, but always delicate. I could not ask for anything better. The sushi and sashimi plates are works of art, and if they were not deliciously fresh and a joy to the palette, they would be suitable for framing and display.
The service was perfect. The wait staff did not hover, but they did check back, twice, and were quick to provide refills, extra katsu sauce, and remove plates.
Ambiance. Yes, Japanese decor, of course. But not in-your-face overbearing samurai and dragons. While it is true that we went at a somewhat off hour, every time we have dined here we are impressed with the absence of noise. Just some gentle Japanese string music in the background. We talked at a normal volume, which for us is quiet. No yelling to be heard. No drunks making fools of themselves. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening at one of the very best and most authentic Japanese restaurants I have found this side of San Francisco, or this side of Honshu for that matter.
