Was going to be a date night at home with take out & was a bit disappointing. My husband's entree was missing the chicken.

Food was very good and it's always worth the wait. We had to wait a good 15 minutes before we got seated. Our waitress didn't get our refills, but someone else did. We got two orders of chicken, one with shrimp and one with a side of rice and carrots.

We visited Moto on a Friday night around 9 pm. We were served soup from a tea pot and not given spoons. The tea we ordered tasted okay but smelled like wet dog. Ginger dressing had the texture of mashed pumpkin; shrimp sauce served in ketchup bottle. Sesame chicken and yakiniku beef dishes were served with rice and a confusing... More

We ordered take out from a take-out service associated with the restaurant. To make sure we had enough, we ordered three entrees for two people. We were overwhelmed with food. The quality was reaonable; the qualtity was super-sized. We could have used soy sause and chopsticks.

I visit Moto's on a regular basis usually for lunch. Food and service are always excellent with good service. Try the Sesame Chicken or Yakiniku Beef.

My husband and I visited while in Johnson City. We both ordered a meal and had enough food for 2 or 3 more people. I had the steak and my husband had filet. Both were cooked to order. Meal included soup and salad. Quick service and reasonably priced.

This is fast food Asian inspired food that is typical of mall food areas. It's nice they have servers and everything but it doesn't replace the fact that it's not healthy. Way too much sauce and food. Lunch specials galore, but wasn't a fan of the food, sorry.

Motos has wonderful Japanese food. My favorite is the hibachi chicken. I love the carrots but also enjoy the zucchini. I have also had the vegetable stir fry and it was delicious too. It was filled with broccoli, cauliflower, onions, and zucchini. The shrimp sauce is awesome. I have moved and miss Motos a lot.

This place is great. Has a small dining room, we've had to wait for table several times, but the wait is usually not long and the food is worth it. Chicken, rice, and carrots are amazing, so is the soup!

We always enjoy our favorite teriyaki meals here- chicken, steak and shrimp are all great. Service could use a little improvement, but we overlook it to enjoy the food.
