“Warsaw sushi classic, always great”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

There were times, in the late '90 where sushi freaks could choose between just two venues: Tokio and Tsubame. The latter went broke in early '00. Tokio survived, despite having competiton of over 100 sushi bars and restaurants that offer anything from basic to seemingly sophisticated maki, nigiri and sashimi.
Tokio hasn't changed much over past 20 years and hopefully it will stay like this for the next few decades.
The decor is almost the same, the menu is now printed a bit more nicely, the toilet looks much better but then the waiting team is the same which is very unusual these days.
If you like the modern, "design" type of sushi - ignore Tokio. If you like fancy places with floating plates - go somewhere else.
But if all you need is the best quality fish and shelfish in town, the widest selection of rolls and raw fish meat, cozy atmosphere, usually very few people around (often Japanese or Korean which is the best recommendation for the venue) then Tokio is the place to visit.
It is a family run establishment and often you will see one of the owners being busy in the kitchen. They are the ultimate guarantee of freshnes and overall quality of what you will be served.
I am coming back to Tokio whenever I want a real sushi treat. It will not be cheap, but never a disappointment.
And one last thing - listen to an automatic voice that says "goodbye" when you leave the place. Tacky? No! It is soooooo old (s)c(h)ool :))))
