Tokyo Japanese Steak House always provides delicious food and an entertaining time. They have hibachi grills, where there chef cooks your food in front of you at your table and they also have a sushi bar.
With their friendly staff and talented chefs, I always leave with a smile on my face and a full stomach.
Located in Gladstone on Barry Road, it is well worth the drive. Entrees range from $15 – $25. Although they may be a bit pricey, you get lots of food for the price.
I ordered the chicken teriyaki for $14.95. It came with soup, salad, sautéed vegetables, noodles, and fried rice on the side.
The chef also included a couple extra shrimp that he threw at you in hopes that you would catch it in your mouth. Although most people generally miss, it makes it that much more entertaining when a shrimp hits someone in the eye instead of making it in their mouth. This was easily one of the best parts of the night due to all of the uncontrollable laughter from everyone at our table, including the chef.
I was in heaven and ate way more than I should have. And I still had plenty of food to take home with me.
Despite the 15 minute wait to get seated at the virtually vacant restaurant and then another 20 minute wait before we got a chef at our table, I was very pleased.
They had the Monday Night Football game playing on the two flat screens in the restaurant, which in my opinion kind of took away from the atmosphere. The sounds of the football game in the background didn’t quite match up with the Japanese style decorations.
Our chef and all of our servers were very friendly and were fun to joke with. I went for a friend’s birthday and after mentioning it to our server and our chef, they did nothing about it, which was kind of disappointing.
Tokyo Japanese Steak House is open from 11-10 on Sunday – Thursday and 11-11 on Friday and Saturday.
Although the service could have been better, the food made up for everything and I would give it four out of five stars and will definitely be returning.
