Fun family atmosphere, the teppan style grill is similar to Benihana and ShoGun where they cook your food right in front of you. Food is usually good and service is great. My experience here has always been a good for lunch.

Japanese style restaurant with great food. Probably a bit overpriced, but too bad. Staff is great, and really seems to want you to have a good experience.

After not having been to Tokyo Kitchen in over 5 years after moving to Texas we decided to do lunch with family here. The food is still as delicious as I remember and it was entertaining for the kids.

Nice tepanyaki place to have a quick lunch or dinner with business relations. Food is very fresh and tasteful but not spectacular. For what you pay however, it is very nice.

This place is great for special occasions! Shrimp and scallops, steaks and chicken are delicious. Sauces are great, and service was friendly. Kids meal is a great deal for around $10. They took out the sushi bar, but that's fine with us. We didn't use it. Early dinners at 5 p.m. are not crowded.

I have been going here for years. Teppan grills are always fun and is a great place to have fun with friends and strangers. It's the restaurant equivalent to the craps table. This particular Japanese restaurant has a really fun sushi bar. The head chef seems to make sure he knows everyone who comes in and he is likely to... More

Been here a few times now and the quality of food is consistently delicious. My personal favorite is the chicken & scallops combo. Decent bar with good selection. This time we were celebrating son-in-law's birthday.

This is a middle of the road teppan grill. The food is good, not great. The prices are average. The service is decent. The atmosphere is standard. The chefs are somewhat entertaining. Miyabi in Upland is better in terms of food quality, and Shoguns is better in terms of atmosphere. Both of those also have much better sauces.

We found this place about 5 years ago when we moved to San bernardino county. Their filet is the best. It just melts in your mouth. Unfortunately they stopped having this restaurant in the entertainment book, which is how we stumbled across it to begin with. There prices are comparable to Benihana, but sorry benihanas is think Tokyo kitchen beats... More

Over the years I have gone to this restaurant and looked forward to my time there. This time things just seemed a little shabby. Cook (who was Mexican, NOT Asian) was not entertaining at all. The fried rice was bland, no egg added, nor green onion, nothing. Carpet seemed threadbare, like it has fallen on hard times. Wabi Sabi is... More
