“Two for price of one”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I can say that I'm love a lot sushi and Tokyo City is a perfect place. First of all when you order sushi usually you get 8 pieces, but in Tokyo City you get 16 pieces for the same price. Second the place is very nice and in the middle of the center of Riga, near is a nice park where to walk and lose a spend a nice time with friends. I'm really glad that my friends discover this place and bring me there. In too persons we spend only 8 lats, that is quite cheep and delicious.

“Inspite of the more or less decent food will never visit it again”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Don't like to write negative reviews, but feel like i have to in order to warn... At the time we got to the restaurant 5 tables were empty but full of dirty dishes. It took us 5 minutes to find someone who would clean the table. Then we had to wait for 15 minutes to get the menues and another 20 minutes for someone to came and take our order. Drink arrived after another 15 minutes (we did not order cocktails or something else complicated, just a bottle of wine)... Another 40 minutes we had to wait for the food which was lukewarm... Spent another half an hour waiting for a bill... So what i am trying to say: THE SERVICE IS LOUSY, ruined the entire evening

“Local Favorite”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

After leaving the Double Coffee Manhattan location very close by due to very poor service (none), we were standing outside and saw a local friend going into Tokyo City. We felt that he was a young "hipster" who probably knew the town well, so we also went in to Tokyo City for dinner. There are large color signs on the window with photos advertising food items available for purchase. A portion of the restaurant faces a lovely park.

We were pleasantly surprised to find a lot of staff working. We were immediately greeted and told we could sit wherever we wanted. Though there were no menus in English, our waiter patiently explained items available and answered any questions we had.

While we were waiting, we were given hot washcloths to wipe our hands. The timing of our meal was nice, as we first ordered drinks which were served immediately. Soon thereafter, a spicy chicken with noodles dish my husband ordered came out. The dish was fantastic. Then our pizza and my husband's eel sushi was served. He said that sushi is some of the best he's ever had (we are foodies and have eaten sushi on the California coastline among many other places). Also, he was given a generous amount of the eel, which was flavorful and well seasoned. I was able to custom request a margarita pizza with pepperoni, as a single topping of pepperoni was not on the menu. Pizza was good, though the Asian food was much better.

Service was attentive and among the best we had experienced in Latvia during our week long vacation. Despite the restaurant closing early due to a Latvian holiday (Sunday, June 23 and Monday, June 24) we were still treated with dignity and at no time were we rushed out.

I admit that I was skeptical at first at how food would taste at a place that served both pizza and Asian food, but everything was great. We were impressed with the food and service at this restaurant, and would definitely return.

“Go for the 2-for-1 price, otherwise average”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I mostly go this restaurant (they are a chain with 3 or 4 restaurants around Latvia) because of 2-for-1 price promotions they basically have almost all of the time. Sushi is good, but I would recommend asking the waiter for recommendations, as some of the offers which look nice in the menu might disappoint.
My favorites are hot sushi, which are very nutritious and often also quite spicy.
Too bad that apparently there is no english menu yet, but maybe that changes at some point.
So the basic verdict is - if you go for the 2-for-1 offer it is worth it, otherwise there are nicer sushi places in Riga.
