Restaurant sounds like a good idea in principle. The cuisine is neither Japanese nor American. The asianish food tasted terrible especially the vegetarian entree. Not many veggie choices really. The Japanese meal was sub par based on what a Japanese colleague said after a visit. Noisy atmosphere, slow service. Seating area messy.

The salads are great and the meats always good. If you are in a hurry and want healthy, this is one of my favorites. They have gluten free sauce for the steak and rice and normally great chicken.

Excellent vibe, great menu options. Food comes out quick. Excellent portion size. Amazingly healthy menu choices. Staff is friendly and courteous. Many locations throughout Colorado. Even though the owner sold a majority interest in the business, his influence is everywhere.

I waited 15 minutes to order my bento box. The items in the box, especially the sushi, were of poor quality. I complained to the waitress about the poor quality of the sushi roll, Rice to dry and fell sap apart before I could get a piece of the California roll into my mouth. Very little sliced ginger. All in... More

I try and eat Healthier options on a daily bases, so I really don't try to eat out much. Fortunately Tokyo Joes is one of the few great restaurants that have healthy options. If you know your calorie intake, there really is not anything bad on the menu.

There are no Tokyo Joe's in my hometown, so this was a first. Pleasantly surprised by the variety and the quality of our meals. I selected a build to order rice bowl with chicken and the sauces made it delicious. My spouse chose a salad topped with salmon and was disappointed in the salmon. The service was slow and the...

Better than expected, the Udon noodles were perfectly cooked and the veggies were crisp. Delightful, unexpected surpise! Will be coming back again!

If you like YC Mongolians, Samurai Sam's, etc you'll enjoy Tokyo Joe's - I had a pretty tasty build-your-own-bowl with chicken, vegetables, and brown rice. My coworkers ordered more soup-type dishes and enjoyed them, just remember to ask the cashier for a spoon up front. They apparently only bring forks and chopsticks by default. Long story short, it didn't blow... More

This Tokyo Joe's is much larger and newer than many I have been too and is much more comfortable. The food is consistent with all other Tokyo Joe's I have been to. The veggies and meats are fresh, and brown rice is an option. It's good, healthy eating that can accommodate Paleo (leave out the rice or noodles and sauce),... More
