“Swai fish....delish!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Came upon this place "by accident" on a quiet-for-the-area, Saturday afternoon. i saw "Swai Fish" on the banner & stopped with my Norwegian, fish-loving father. Wow! Ultra thin, light, white fish, flavored by the grill to something amazing. The vegies also were deliciously flavored; light and NOT like the usual sauce-soaked Asian fast-food variety. Brown rice was great. Salad (comes with combo) was FRESH and with varied leaves. Quick service...so it is fast food service with up-class taste. A real nice find!

“Incredibly flavored Asian food cooked fresh before you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

The Tokio (yes, that's how they spell it) Grill recently opened in the corner plaza at Main & MacArthur in Irvine near John Wayne Airport. The restaurant offers a variety of plates and combos (that come with a drink and salad). Each dish consists of either beef, chicken, shrimp, or vegetables cooked on a hibachi along with rice. The rice is unusually flavored with soy sauce, pepper and lemon juice. It's great and I have never tasted anything like it before. I prefer the small plates. The combos are too large for me. I also like that they have vegetable plates on days where I prefer not to eat meat. The food comes out fast and tastes great. Go to this place!

“Not worth the time. If you want a hot dog, go to Costco or Weinerschnitzel.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2010

Haute Links is located in a strip mall at MacArthur Boulevard & Main St. in Irvine. They serve a variety of hot dogs of different meats as well as a veggie dog. I ordered a basic hot dog/salad/drink combo that came to about $5.75. The hot dog had been previously cooked but was placed on the grill to warm up. There is a condiment buffet that has pickles, olives, salad dressing, and other toppings. My hot dog was not even really hot. The roll was ok. Oh yes, the owner loves cracking pseudo jokes over the store's public address system. They could do much better with this concept.
