Mr. Toyko has been put on our repeat list. Very nice inside—clean and fresh looking. Husband had a bowl of miso soup ($2.00) and an order of vegetable tempura (6 pieces for $6.00). I had age tofu (6 pieces for $5.00). Also one salmon nigiri (1 piece for $2.00) and two pieces of eel nigiri (also two dollars each). The only item we did not care for was the miso soup. The eel nigiri was my favorite. Our bill for two with one ice tea came to 22.60 before tax.

Portions are not large (actually a nice change from most restaurant servings), but we both left a little hungry.

We are not an all-you-can eat type of couple, but I think that is probably the option I will choose at our next visit. The nigiri are smaller than bite-size so at $12.99 I think I could consume enough to make it worth the price. Husband does not agree with me. I did notice the eel was not on the all-you-can eat nigiri menu. Youou can also choose from many different sushi rolls, gyoza, fried rice, etc. I probably would never pick the hibachi or teriyaki-style offerings as I usually find they are a gloppy mess.

If you opt for all-you-can-eat, there is a surcharge for each piece of leftover on your plate, even an uneaten rice ball. However, part of that goes to No Kids Hungry so it’s all good.

The quality is fine. Not quite Aki Hana, but good. It is nice to have an another option when we don’t want to drive all the way from Durham to Carrboro.
