“Good food; fair price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Heard about this place, so we decided to try it. It was Sunday, so we all tried the buffet. Not bad; food was fresh and the service was adequate. Lots of sushi choices. We would try it again.

“Don't Bother!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Review from the Point: Tokyo Live, Lafayette. OH my how you have changed! I am not officially not impressed, nor will I be dinning there again... and judging from the census of your dinner crowd, with a festival in town? others have come to the same conclusion. Service- (Hostess/Fabulous) ? Tip- apply elsewhere, you are not supported by the staff, nor do they reflect your excellence in people skills! Service-(Wait Staff) ? Tip- write it down! Incorrect beverages, and incorrect food orders, resulted in... made from the kitchen and not the grill? Does not taste the same, and ruins the experience. Service-(Chef) Tip- after the wait staff pissed him off with the incorrect orders, he lost his mojo. Lost his grove, sadly enough the folks at our table, strangers to us... watched the other chef and his antics across the room while our chef prepared ours. Bad attitude=Really Bad Tip. The 3 preteens at our table were respectful and behaved better then the Chef the entire time we were there. Tokyo Live you have lost your niche' , your grove... the one thing that sets you apart from everyone else. I don't mind paying for good food and good service, a good experience.... but last night? we experienced none of those things...

“Don't do it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I was out of town with several business associates when I decided to eat at Tokyo Live. Big mistake!!! First of all, the food was subpar at best and if that was not enough my salad had a fly in it.The worst part is that after I complained about the fly, the manager did not even come to my table to apologize or anything. Disgusting all the way around!!!! Do not waste your money or your time.

“The best hibachi & sushi in Lafayette”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

One of Lafayette's finest hibachi & sushi restaurants. Great atmosphere and fabulous waiter/waitress service. I recommend the YOLO roll.

“Amazed at the good reviews”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We went to Tokyo Live because of all the reviews we read. We must have been at the wrong place because it was not good!! The restaurant had a strange nasty smell, the staff were not pleasant or friendly and the food was unimpressive! We spent A LOT of money on food that was bland. When we sent an entree back because it wasn't what we expected at all, the waiter didn't take it off our bill!! Didn't even offer to! So, we now know to stay away from Tokyo Live!!
