A terrific stop for a quick delicious Asian food that's healthy as well Mix & match rice or noodles with fresh veggies & meats, altho there are plenty of choices for vegans as well. Served hot, portions are generous & refreshing iced teas, such as raspberry hibiscus, compliment the cuisine. It's always a good sign when lots of kids seem... More

Lots of choices here, from rice bowls to sushi to soup. Always filling and relatively cheap, Tokyo Joe's is a good choice for Boulder.

Delicious bowls, relatively fast. Ingredients fresh. Would reccomend any dish on the menu. Wish we had eaten there more as there were several I would have like to have tried.

The food at Tokyo Joe's is always consistent. They seem to switch up the menu (which is good) a few times a year. The dishes are prepared to order. The food tasted healthy and fresh but savory. I am never disappointed when I go here for a quick bite to eat.

This was my fault, thinking that because it said "Tokyo", it would be Japanese. Maybe it seems like Japanese fast food, if you've never eaten Japanese food. Here was the first give away, the noodles in the ramen bowl. I'm pretty forgiving regarding ramen, I even have eaten and enjoyed "cup noodle", but please do not put spaghetti in my... More

Inexpensive (for sushi) restaurant. Very tasty. Fast service. Can eat in or take out. I'd definitely eat here again (and wish there was one in my town!)

We have eaten lunch here 3-4 times. The food is fresh & healthy and the prices very reasonable. The food, however, could use quite a bit more taste, as we found it to be very bland and without any flavor notes. The noise level is also a bit high. Panda Express & the various Sushi joints in Boulder are a... More

I eat lunch at TJ regularly. The food is relatively wholesome and I love the variations on the rice and veggies theme. One thing I really appreciate is that after lunch I feel more alert and not groggy and in need of a nap. This is important to me as I work in construction and the time immediately after lunch...

We go to Tokyo Joe's when we need a healthy, quick meal that doesn't take long. It's not fancy but it's consistent, healthy, the price is good, and we know what we're getting. We can change out vegetables as we need to, we can honor gluten- and dairy-free needs without a worry, and we never leave hungry. PLUS we use... More

The food is always just as you order it, not different each time, so you get what you order, every time. Clean place and good tasty food (and a lot of salmon in their bowls!). Sushi is quick too, and made there on the spot. All in all, the staff being nice people and good food, means I detour to... More
