I first went to Tokyo One on New Year's day in 2009. I was on the hunt for great sushi but served in a buffet style. I browsed the internet for hours and all the comments said to stay away from a buffet that offers sushi. Then I stumbled upon Tokyo One. There weren't many reviews so I called the restaurant to find out their prices and hours. Since it was a holiday, prices were higher ($25 per person), but I REALLY wanted sushi. So I took my mom and the first thing that caught my eyes was the crowded waiting area. The place had only been ioen for half an hour and it was packed. When I finally got a table, I went straight to the sushi. It was being prepared as fast as guests were consuming it. There were several chefs behind the bar cutting up fresh fish. I'm no sushi expert, but I do know when something tastes good. It was AMAZING! After the sushi, I went for the tempura. They had veggies (broccoli and sweet potatoes), shrimp, and octopus. It was always hot and delicious. I also ordered the hot pot or "shabu shabu". I didn't know what I was doing so I piled my plate full of corn, cabbage, shrimp, scallops, oysters, beef, and chicken. Then, one of the managers came over to assist. She was very pleasant and explained that there were sauces I could add as well. I dumped everything in the broth and watched it cook. The manager continued to check on my table and suggest other foods I should try. Once my ingredients were cooked, I fixed a bowl and enjoyed my soup. At this point, I am stuffed. But there was another side of the restaurant I had not visited. There was a salad bar, a hibachi, and other hot prepared foods. They had kobe beef, lamb chops, salmon, and fried rice available. It all looked very delicious, but I could not bring myself to try anything else....except for the ice cream. Now, when the waiter offered me red bean ice cream and green tea ice cream, I looked at him like he was crazy. I have a little crazy in me so I got a scoop of both. I'm not a fan of the green tea, but OMG the red bean is my fav!! It was the perfect ending to a great meal. I have since been to Tokyo One several times and I have not been disappointed yet. I continue to get great service and great food. This place is one of my favorites.
