“Sushi always top notch”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We live in the next town and drive to Toyama often for dinner. The Asian owners are always working in the restaurant - he is in the kitchen or the sushi bar and she is managing the floor. The sushi has always been excellent - try the roll party if you don't know what to order (serves 2). Very friendly and great service no matter whether crowded or not. It's a small place in a side street - it won't impress you from the outside but don't pass it by for that reason. We have been in Japan often and promise you won't be sorry.

“Almost perfect”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Toyama is a good restaurant in Elizabeth City. The atmosphere is lively and the servers are helpful.

The sushi was very good. I then ordered a Soba noodle dish, only to learn that their Soba noodles were not made of buckwheat, just plain white flour. I was very disappointed and frankly, I wondered what else they were cutting corners on. How much more does it cost to serve real buckwheat Soba noodles? Charge more, if you have to.

I would definitely return to Toyama for its sushi and rolls. But next time, I'll order a rice-based dish.

“Always a Winner!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Toyama's has the best sushi rolls. My daughter and I eat there often and are always pleased. The atmosphere is relaxing and the service is great! Try the shrimp dumplings, my newest discovery. The lunch specials are always very reasonable. I have never found another Japanese restaurant that measures up to Toyamas. Elizabeth City is very fortunate!!

“As good as sushi gets--”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

And we've been to Japan! A variety of dishes and concoctions amaze with their freshness and taste. Try the kani, squid, cucumber, or avocado salad; continue with a Pink Lady, Spence, or Sun Roll; sample a hot teriyaki dish. Even the tofu is excellent. The service is friendly and brisk. You won't have to wait long. Reviewers who have commented on the big city quality of this gem of a restaurant are absolutely right. The food and service more than make up for the somewhat plain ambiance.
