Tokyo Japanese Restaurant

3500 Factoria Blvd. S.E.
Bellevue, WA
(425) 641-5691

With so many great Japanese restaurants in Seattle I was hopeful that I could find some in the suburbs that were equally good. While Tokyo in the Factoria section of Bellevue was very good, it did not quite live up to what I consider to be the world class Japanese restaurants located across Lake Washington.

The Sushi was very good and fresh. It did not have the variety found in the top tier Seattle restaurants, but still I thought it was very enjoyable.

The Salmon Teriyaki was disappointing considering the type of fresh fish that is available in the Puget Sound area. Using Atlantic salmon, I did not feel that they spent as much effort as they could have to find the best fish. Still, though, I would call the salmon at Tokyo "adequate," and the teriyaki sauce was very good (making this a good dish overall).

Tokyo is less expensive than the really good Japanese restaurants, so when you come here you know what to expect-- a medium-priced suburban restaurant with fairly good, but not exceptional food. I have heard that they have other specialties besides sushi, so it would be worth giving it a try.
