Description: Tokio Joe’s simple décor and friendly staff provide a relaxed and casual alternative to formal Japanese dining. Interior space is highlighted by wooden paper screens, natural wood and open sushi bar giving an airy feel. The ‘user friendly’ menu features traditional favourites and innovative creations with anemphasis on fresh sushi and sashimi. A must try are Joe’s Soft Shell Crab Rolls and deliciously fresh Spicy Toro Tartar.

“So good.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I have been going to this place for years and it never disappoints. The complimentary tomato that has the most delicious dressing is incredible. One of those meals that you think about and crave. The spicy toro tartar is incredible, A dessert island dish! Again, after living in HK for over 7 years and now living away would be the number one dish i would have on visits.

“Amazing toro”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Yes, the toro is $10/USD per piece. Yikes. But it is soooooo good. We stopped by the other night and easily spent $150/USD for 2 people and were in and out of the restaurant in 25 minutes. They are fast, they are good and they remind you that there is a lot of bad sushi in this world. Skip the hamachi -- it is probably their only weak spot. Definitely make reservations if dining late - otherwise if you stop by at 6:30 you can usually get a table if you promise to be out by 8.

“An excellent restaurant to experience the Lan Kwai Fong atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I just recently came from a vacation in Hong Kong and had the pleasure of dining here two times. A bit pricey but well worth every dollar. Fresh food, good service and a pleasant trendy atmosphere. Love it. Highly recommended.
