The food is incredibly delicious and the service is wonderful. After living in Japan, I was eager to find a Japanese restaurant whose food tasted like the real thing. Tomo fits the bill.

First time visit and wasn't disappointed. Arrived just after they opened for dinner and was seated promptly. Ordered several of their happy hour sushi, appetizers and side dishes. For our entrée we had the hibachi duck and squid dinner and a couple of their dinner bowl. Everything was delicious. Will definitely come back.

The quick review: this place has pretty good food and potential but has a few small and big hurdles to overcome to be at 4 stars or 5 stars. Before I get to food and service I would like to address the curb appeal, ambiance and marketing. The strip center needs a refresh and better lighting. Dark and shady looking... More

Not crowded and ordered sushi which I enjoyed previously. Also ordered hot tea. Instead of a pot of tea the two of us got one cup of tea that was tepid at... More

Fresh sushi with a great selection of specialty dishes. You can go for the traditional hibachi table but why would you? The smoked yellowtail is a must and a great presentation with the glass cover removed to reveal the "extra" smoke. Baby octopus? Yes please! Service was prompt and not obtrusive.

I am not sure this place is as good as it used to be now that the owners have changes this year. The serve the same dishes for the most part, but they are prepared differently. I still encourage folks to try it out as it is as authentic as you can find here in Jax.

I have been there twice now (April & June 2016). Excellent. Sushi is so good & quite an extensive variety to choose from. Fried rice & Gyoza are also very tasty. Full bar service. I have not eaten off the Hibachi menu, though. Owner (Al) is genuinely proud of this establishment. Authentic Japanese food. He really makes an extra effort... More

This place looks a bit sketchy and dark, but the service and the food are always good. We take our boys here for their choice to eat out.

I agree with a prior review that the outside looks ok, and the inside looks a bit run down, but I went on a date and we set at the sushi bar. We ordered drinks and a few sushi rolls to share and the sushi staff accidentally made us the wrong roll, however, this was excellent because they let us... More
