They did not offer a la CARTE teriyaki dinners. The bento boxes were good but nothing special. Service was decent, though slow. Miso soup was excellent. I think they need to do some upgrading. PLease don't blame covid

Excellent atmosphere is an authentic setting. Excellent quality, fresh and tasty sushi. Recommended for a good meal that will leave you satisfied, energized and wishing you could come back. Service is slower, which allows to take in the experience. This is a great place to...enjoy good company and fabulous Japanese delicacies. Reccomended!More

Average sushi and freindly enough but we have come away hungry each time for the proir year. Our last order was our final, a $115.00 order and not enough food to feed 4 people.

Excellent food and amazing service! They’re always busy and have line ups. We order ahead of time and are never dissolved. We’re lucky to have Taste of Tokyo in Sidney!

Yet another restaurant tried over teh last months since moving to Sidney. With the ubiquitousness of Sushi, it is hard to stand out but Taste of Tokyo did very well. The ingredients were fresh and tasty and the selection very good.

I ordered a 12 piece veggie tempura l with my order and my fiancé went to pick it up. As he was paying for the order with debit he was told that they ran out of the vegetables and they said it was all yam...tempura. He didn’t think much of it as I have ordered yam once in a blue moon in the past but 12 pieces of straight yam is too much yam for any 1 person. On the website the yam tempura is 6.00 for 6 pieces. I thought they would have given us the 6 pieces but they gave us 12 and also charged us the amount for The veggie tempura. Several pieces of the yam didn’t even have tempura on one side of them, and some pieces were so small they shouldn’t even count as 1 piece. It would have been nice to have been asked if they could substitute as they asked for our phone number when they took the order or given us a credit for the substitution. Also being a vegetarian, I ordered a kappa maki roll. It was packaged in with the California rolls which contain crab and would have been nice to have been packaged separately.More

Decent sushi close to home in Sidney. The menu is pretty good also. I find the prices a little high, but it's more convenient then driving to our favourite place down closer to Victoria.

I had a salmon maki roll and the chicken karaggi house bento box. The roll was small but good and the bento box was excellent. Large portions and everything was quite tasty. The tempura batter could use improvement however. Recommend.

Used to be good. The menu is NOT Japanese. The server did not know what I was talking about when I asked for Teriyaki Chicken!!

My wife and I travel to Schwartz Bay ferry terminal quite frequently and this sushi restaurant has become our regular lunch stop. It is obviously popular with the local residents and is always busy. The lunchtime bento menu has several choices. One nice option is...the akira roll instead of the usual bowl of steamed rice. Service is friendly, the food comes quickly, and the prices are right.More
