“A Genuine Japanese Experience”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I enjoyed yet another relaxed wonderful Japanese Lunch, as always at my beloved one and only Japanese Restaurant in Kochi - Tokyo Bay; last week. I absolutely "looovvve" this place, for its delicious food, serene ambience, minimalist decor and faultless service.

The delectable fare started with my perennial favourite Hoso Maki (Slender Sushi rolls) Tekka Maki (12 Nori (seaweed)-wrapped Raw Tuna Sushi rolls); alongwith Buta Bara (Barbecued skewers of Pork Ribs) followed by the mains which included a Miso Soup, Tsukemono (Japanese Pickles) with the Pork Katsu Don (Pork cutlet with onion and egg on the rice) accompanied with the subtle Shizouka Koucha (Japanese Black Tea) topped with the Uji Matcha Green Tea ice cream.

This experience left me "lightly satiated" - a new type of an unheavy, unaccustomed pleasurable satiation for the experimental Kochi palate. I recommend this restaurant as a must visit for all the adventurous foodies in Kochi, looking for a genuine experience of a new unfamiliar cuisine. This new place really grows on you. I have already been there with family five times. I really feel many more of us must enjoy this lovely eatery. The radiant presence of the cheerful and affable Mrs Joey Bhogal who makes it a point to check on one's experience; must be another one of the reasons the place bears the hallmark of a well-oiled, efficiently run establishment and one comes away with a special feeling of being taken care of. I am already looking forward to my next trip to Tokyo Bay, Kochi, which hopefully would be next week.

“Wonderful ambience, excellent food!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Tokyo Bay is the only sushi restaurant in Kochi. The interiors are very tastefully done and its very spacious, great place to go as a couple. as a family, and they even have a private room for larger groups.

The food is super delicious with a wide varied of sushi and other Japanese food. There's also Chinese food for those who want some variety.

The prices, given the quality of the food and decor is just right.

I met the owners George and his wife Roopa on that night I dined and they are very warm, friendly and gracious with an attention for detail. They come almost every night which is a good sign for any new restaurant.

Location: Its located in the Presidency hotel which has parking space for your car.

Overall: A must go place to not only enjoy great food and a fine dining experience but in case you've not tried sushi before, then I'd encourage you go to experience authentic Japanese cuisine and expand your palate and tastes.

“A refreshing change”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This new Japanese restaurant has nice interiors, great ambience and rather authentic food. We had Ebi Tempura (prawns), Yaki Niku (beef), Tekkmaki (sushi), Chicken pepper steak, Buta Bara (pork), Katsudon (pork, with rice and egg) and Yaki Soba (noodle). The service is attentive and they are well informed, explaining the various dishes rather well.
It is located on the 7th floor of Hotel Presidency, near the Ernakulam North (Town) Railway station.
