Our group believes Toyama is the best restaurant experience in Elizabeth City. Here they remember your name, your favorite drink, and the food that you ordered last time. Wow! Its decor is bland but its spirit is most welcoming. As well as the regular sushi, sashimi, tempura and noodle dishes they have a wide assortment of interesting rolls, of which my particular favorite is a Spence Roll which is crispy and soft at the same time with a basis of shrimp and seaweed. For the non-raw fish eaters there is a variety of un-ethnic dishes so that they don't feel left out. With its warm service and good food Toyama has become a favorite hang out for Coast Guardsmen and locals alike. Unpretentious but always good.

As vegetarians we can almost always find a good meal at a Japanese restaurant but not this one. The tofu teriyaki was the only selection and it was just tofu and no vegetables. The salad was head lettuce. Maybe OK for sushi eaters but not for us. Service was fast and food was hot.

I have eaten here on numerous occasions, for both lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. The fish is fresh and tasty, and the servers are helpful and attentive. Be forewarned that there is little on the menu if you don't like Japanese food, an issue for some folks perhaps but not for me! Even the take-out has always been good.

Been here several times with friends and liked it so much brought my wife and she's picky... We loved it!!!
The sushi is excellent as is the authentic fried rice... Give it a try, the atmosphere is a little lite but it works for the Japanese minimalism...
