I have been to this restaurant many times before, as this one of the best sushi restaurants in town. The food is outstanding, fresh and good quality, however my recent night dining here was very disappointing.
We had each one cocktail, some sushi and desert to share. The cheesecake – creme brulee had one small living worm on the top - most probably due to the fresh strawberry - and i have raised this to the waiter. Later the restaurent manager came to apologize, offered to get us a new desert.
I believe this is a very uncomfortable mistake, however absolutely understandable as the dish included fresh fruits, was not dissapointed about the fact of this failure, but the customer experience.
The price of the dish got removed from the overall bill, however other compensation would have been expected from a prestigious restaurant. I wasnt raising this request at the time, because i didnt wanted to ruin the evening with this discussion, however i have a regret about this and overall did not walk away from the restaurant with the same satisfaction as i have many times before.

They serve the best sushi in Budapest. Sparking wine list is impressive, Hungarian brand Kreinbacher is always a good choice.

The place is nice, the food was amazing but the cocktails not so great, we barely felt the alcohol and they were not the tastiest we ever tried. I booked the table for my birthday and I chose this is as the reason why we book the table. I would have expected from a nice gesture from customer point of view (as a shot of drink or a sweet from the menu from the house) at the end considering that we need to leave 13,5% from the check for the service. The tables were most of them too close, you do not have too much privacy..the waiters were nice, they were recommending us the food and the drinks, I can not complain about this but as I said, it was not anything outstanding from other restaurants to be worth 13,5% of the total bill which was not cheap at all, trust me!

Food was really good overall:
Karaage: was ok, but would not order again.
Kani udon: excellent
Sushis: excellent
Wines : excellent
Prices: overall, the full menu is a little bit pricey for a local, but probably you can get one of the best sushi here.

It was a nice evening at Tokio, the highlight of our dinner was the service, our host was a long black haired lady, unfortunately I forgot her name. She did really outstanding job during our dinner, offered wine a New Zealand one (her fav) which happened to be a perfect choice, also she was really attentive and she was always smiling which is extremely rare in Budapest restaurants. It was such service I only experienced in Michelin star restaurants in Budapest so far. Thank you for the service and help again.

Ambiance was nice, restaurant and bathrooms were clean. Host and staff were helpful explaining the menu and good choices. The sushi was fresh and delicious. Only negative is I think it’s expensive in comparison to some other sushi places around here.

Amazing food but staff a bit too pushy, i ordered a huge plate with more than 30 pieces of sushi but they still kept asking every 20 minutes if we want more food, more wine, more desserts, more water. A bit overpriced too, not worth it to go more than 1 or 2 / year

Tokyo is a wonderful restaurant, in my past I have never eaten such good sushi. I like the location, and the design.
In addition to the excellent food, the cocktails and drinks from the bar are also imaginative and always excellent.
With regret I must say instead that the customer service is not the best. I am a regular customer, I believe that I have been going to this restaurant regularly for about 5 years, considering that every single time I spend no less than 50.000HUF for 2 people dinner and sometimes I go even 2 times a month, you do the count of how much money I have pleasantly spent in this restaurant. Even now, except for only 1 waiter, no one recognizes you, no one greets you at the entrance with an extra smile or shaking hands. Very anonymous, it almost seems like he doesn't give a damn about having customers coming back.
It does not matter, I will continue to go there because the food is good, perhaps it is precisely for this reason that he is not interested in making so many smiles, the customers come back anyway.

Minden nagyon jó volt. Azonban a sushi-t személy szerint jobban szeretem, ha nem szobahőmérsékletűen tálalják, hanem egy picit hűvösebben.

Budapest isn't necessarily a sushi-city. That being said, I had heard good reviews of Tokio and their prices are certainly premium category. The staff was very friendly. The venue is nice but small inside -- and, due to weather, we weren't able to secure a table outside (which I'd recommend to any guests). We ordered a 2-person platter and the mix in that offering was quite "ho-hum"... the regular and unexciting sushi pieces. Very large rolls vs more digestible and elegant smaller ones. No special sauces (just the regular soy sauce). And nothing creative or unique on that platter. Coming from Vancouver (which IS a sushi city), I may have bias and a bit of "snobism" simply because the price here didn't warrant the smaller venue or lackluster but perfectly "good" platter. If someone is new to sushi or just craving a "good" sushi place in Budapest, Tokio can be a good choice. But I'd recommend try their more unique rolls as the platter is very template. I don't believe I'd be motivated to go back there. (Service was great though!).

The food was outstanding, very delicious one by one.
The environment is also beautiful, at the foot of the Chain Bridge.
The staff is kind, good-natured, intelligent and attentive.
The jazz music that filtered through from the neighbor just peaked the mood.
I recommend it to everyone with a very good heart.
