Food is always good. Service drops off when busy, which was the case this time. Kind of have to pick your spots, otherwise can turn into a long evening. For some that’s part of the experience. For others who like to get in and out it may not be what you are hoping for

Great food and nice service. A little loud compared to other hibachi places but I think that's the crowd they're going for. Food was the highlight for sure

All was well with our experience at Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse. The food just didn't quite live up to the expectation of traditional hibachi.

Food is always consistently good. Service is hit and miss sometimes, depending on how busy the restaurant is. Server was excellent this time. Attentive to our needs, which basically is refilling water, but that's all that I hope for anyway. Got us in and out in a timely manner

Food is good but service and ambiance is lacking. Also please note that the hibachi area is what appears to be full seating capacity and the 6 foot social distancing gudelines are not possible.

The food was great! We just felt rushed. The minute we sat down the waiter wanted to know what we wanted to drink. 2 minutes later he wanted to know what we wanted to eat. Like we didn't even get a chance to just take in the moment and the experience. Now, I know next time to just order take out.

Waitstaff is curt and rude. Asked for a knife and it was like we were asking for a million dollars! Never came back to ask if we wanted more drinks, or needed anything. Hibachi chef must have been a rookie.. Not much of any kind of show from him at all. Noodles were barely cooked and had no flavor whatsoever.. Felt really rushed throughout this meal!. Won't be going back again!

The main chef is very hospitable but that is the only plus to my visit. The servers were incompetent and very rude.

The service was horrible and my salad was frozen. I didn’t make a big deal about it during the meal but on my way out I told management about the frozen salad only to be told it’s supposed to be cold. I understand that everyone is doing their best given the pandemic but bad service and the flippant remark has made me decide not to return.

We have been here many time before but am very upset that during the Covid out break Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse @ Chestnuthill had no concept of their social responsibility. The steakhouse was filled with college kids all packed like a sardine in a box; with no social distancing. The Mgmt made no effort and participated in packing the folks at any table within the restaurant. The food was terrible as clearly they were not staffed for so many folks. I should have filled a complaint with City of Newton health department and Chestnut Hill mall’s landlord!

I have no interest in supporting local business that acts so irresponsibly!

Only one other table had customers when we arrived, which was nice for us. I’m assuming that Tokyo is struggling, along with so many other establishments, but we’re trying to support as best we can. Food is always consistently good. Service is fine. Decent night out.

They weren’t open. I drove 15 minutes to get to them. They were closed. The fact that Opentable was booking for them while they weren’t even open and I wasted my time going there is pathetic.

I great Japanese hibachi restraint. Skilled knife work. On other occasions we have had "cook it yourself" Hibachi and the experience was great. Their Sushi is great also. A hidden gem in the upper level of Chestnut hill Mall, with lots of free parking right outside.

Did not even get seated as they had Way overbooked themselves on open table and otherwise, arrived on time for reservation and folks booked 45 min-1 hr prior to us were still waiting for their table, including mother w infant daughter. Felt terrible for folks waiting for so long on Valentines day.
Should not be listed for booking on open table if they are not able to honor reservations.
- Did not get to try anything and left - had to fill out the prior food quality etc to get to this page, would not comment on restaurant food or service given did not get to try.

We had a reservation for 7, but only got called to be seated at 7-50. What's the point of a reservation if you have to wait 50minutes!

The place was understaffed, and service slow.

It wasn't crowded at 6:30 pm on 2/14, host was mean, it was really cold. Service was horrible and my lobster scallops and shrimp were over cooked. However, the rice was good and the busboy was very nice. I'm totally shocked...Toyko is my favorite!
