Many of the most popular restaurants in hip Davis Square Somerville are crowded and noisy; fun and full of action, but sometimes just too frenetic. Taipei Tokyo is a nice change of pace: the atmosphere is relaxed, lighting is attractive, and noise levels are low. The location is excellent - right across the street from the Somerville Theatre. We've eaten... More

The sushi here is delicious with a great variety! The service is speedy, efficient & wonderful! The girls that work at the front desk are so polite, speak flawless English & prepare takeaway orders in an impressive 10 minutes! Most places make you wait over half an hour! I went in last night to order takeaway at dinner rush hour... More

Extensive sushi menu, as well as tempura, katsu and several Chinese items. My Sesame chicken was delicious, the chicken tender, the sauce not overly cloying. Perfectly cooked broccoli florets garnished the plate. Service is very attentive. I always enjoy a meal here when in the area.

It's a nice place for a simple sushi or bento box. They have a decent selection of regular sushi and maki, but don't have much in the way of fancy sushi rolls.

Been here twice and the sushi was great both times. I particularly like the one with the soybean wrapper instead of nori. (called Taipei toyko maki)

I go to college nearby and Taipei Tokyo is exactly what I'm looking for in a local sushi place. They have moderately priced sushi that's actually pretty good. They have very creative rolls and also the traditional ones. If you're not in the mood for sushi, they have Chinese offerings as well. It's exactly what you want. Good and fast... More

I go here about once a week for takeout. I have eaten-in before. They only have beer and wine and the place is TINY. I prefer to just do takeout. They are so quick! Rolls are priced as expected. They do have a lunch special that is pretty great. Highly recommended!

i've been to Taipei Tokyo a few times, and found it to be a good, quick place to grab a meal. i haven't found the great dish here, yet, but everything has been good and the service friendly. It's the best Asian place i've found in the Davis Square neighborhood.

Quality sushi and good sushi combos make Taipei a great choice. The prices are similar to many other sushi restraunts, but the combos allow you to grab a greater variety at an affordable price. I have never tried anything but the sushi and probably never will, this is my go to spot when craving sushi.

A friend suggested that we meet here. It is a bustling pan-Asian cafe. We had Thai, Japanese, and Chinese among us. They take reservations and make space available for wheelchair diners. Good food and nice people.
