Worst dining in experience possible. When I arrived I was the only client in the restaurant (should be a bad omen). I was dispatched to one of the back tables. It took around 30 minutes to be served and the dinner came in plastic bowl...like a take out. When I was paying I saw other clients estong in regular plates and I asked why. The owner said that some clients were more special and would eat in better plates and because of covid most of clients were served in plastic ones. The owner was very rude and said that she wouldn’t care if I or other clients would be upset by the service they received. This is a restaurant I will never return.More

We walked into Toshi tonight and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was completely redone , it was beautiful . The service was great, and the food was delicious. The sushi was fresh. Quickly served and served with a smile. We both had Udon and were...very happy with our meals.More

Came to Toshi for the first time with friends on a Friday night. It has a nice country/barn type decor and is fairly quiet, even for a Friday night. Everything we ate was very good. I had the avocado roll and chicken fried hibachi style...rice. My friends had various types of sushi and soup, but once they tried the fried rice they put two more orders in for it. The rice portion wasn’t huge but was filling enough and it was very flavorful and had plenty of chicken. I had the passion cocktail and they made it strong but it tasted good. Our server had an impatient tone but it wasn’t a deal breaker for the night. Overall, would definitely go back again.More

The sushi and sashimi is very fresh, the staff is very friendly as are the Sushi chefs. We come here at least once a month and are never disappointed.

I don't enjoy Toshi overall as much as I did back in the day under different ownership and I don't go for dinner anymore, but lunch is still a solid value with the bento box combos. It is in the regular rotation for our local...lunch spots at work, for sure. Bento with spicy tuna roll and chicken katsu is my go to.More

If you haven’t given Toshi Japanese Resturant a try yet you don’t know what you’re missing. We are regular clients of this restaurant and frequent this establishment at least once to twice a month. Every time the meal is made with consistency and Top Quality...which makes this restaurant one that will last decades.More

Been there many times and good items. Service is not exceptional at all but adequate and fast and convenient when looking for sushi and related items.

I frequent virtually all of the 6-7 Japanese restaurants in the Hartford area, and lately, Toshi is clearly the best. Unusual rolls, very fresh sashimi, and a great environment and ambience make this my favorite.

This is a great lunch spot. The lunch specials are good. The sushi quality is good not great and dinner prices are high, but not ridiculous for this area.

Toshi is a favorite place for sushi, sashimi and the chef special omakase There is a good selection of appetizers, fresh seafood sushi and rolls. Our favorites include the sushi/ sashimi dinner, the Fuji and volcano rolls, the chirasi (assorted sashimi and rice), the Hamachi...hand rolls, and the sushi chef's omakase selection. Although there are individual tables, we prefer sitting at the sushi bar where we can talk to the chef as we watch the food preparation.More

This pretty much sums it up. Decent sushi. But nothing to get excited about. Rolls are ordinary. Impatient servers. Food came out quickly so that was nice.

It's in the way home from work so that makes it good for me. I've had much better, I've had worse. Definitely not the most polite staff. I see a lot of reviewers kill them on that. Maybe it's a language barrier?!?!

Service was horrible, and only three tables had customers. The food was greasy and had no flavor. The only thing we enjoyed was the water. It was crisp, cold and refreshing.

When we want sushi and sahimi, we usually go to Toshi where we can get generous portions at reasonable prices. We usually sit at the sushi bar where we can watch the skillful preparation and unique presentation. Favorites include the sushi and sashimi sampler, the...chef's choice sushi and various rolls. The house salad with ginger dressing is also a favorite.More

Very Good Sashimi and Sushi! I have been eating Sashimi for 25 years and this is very good. Service can be a tiny bit slow, but when you eat, you will forget about it. Sit @ sushi bar. Over all very, very, good place to...eat. Nice people also.More
