Gourmet sushi. Never saw anything like the selection at Tokai. We drive about 1 hour from our house to eat their sushi almost every Friday. Tuna pizza and oysters are must to try. All sashimi rolls are incredible.

Hibachi at To-Kai has become a Christmas tradition for our family traveling into Philadelphia from Ohio, Colorado and the Central PA and NE Phillie area. As our family grows, we have younger children who enjoy the action of the hibachi chefs. My chicken & shrimp dish was delicious. I'd recommend To-Kai. Not just hibachi; nice menu with lots of good...

Definitely the favorite for hibachi amongst all of my family members. We come back here over and over again because the food, service, and food (yes, again), cannot be beat! The steak is always so yummy but the rice is to absolutely die for! I always order more than one order of rice because it just doesn't get any better.... More

My first visit even though I live about a mile from restaurant. I was hesitant because I didn't know anyone who had eaten there. I glad my husband suggested it. Very nice decor with comfortable seating. Service was great. Sushi and sashimi were fresh and delicious...avocado blossom is a must!...roast duck entree was very large (take home) and especially good...definitely... More

My fiance and have gone to this restaurant on a semi-regular basis since we moved to NE Philadelphia. I can say we have never had a bad time; in fact, it has almost always been excellent. Whether we order take out, or eat-in for sushi or hibachi...we have thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this place!

My husband & I have been coming to To-Kai for years; it is always consistently great. From the hibatchi to the so fresh sushi; we usually go for the sushi. So many great rolls & the atmosphere is so relaxing and inviting. Our last visit we got three sushi rolls and decided to split a roasted duck platter. The duck... More
