Inspired by the Brooklyn location of same name, this chain restaurant in Lawrence, NY proves that same great food and atmosphere can travel all the way to Five Towns. Symbolic of Japan, their modern red, black and white decor follow a great fun theme giving young couples and their friends a place to enjoy. Their ambiance is one of a mix between takeout, and quick dine-in with comfortable booths and stools by their full sushi bar with lunch and dinner specials.
Sushi Tokyo’s menu is color coded for your convenience by their vegetable/fruit rolls, low carb, non-raw fish, raw fish, spicy, and heart shaped rolls. Krispy Kosara, a delicious appetizer with a great crunchy bite, as well as the Taco Sushi (lettuce, avocado, tomato, salmon, spicy tuna and sweet sauce) are highly suggested. You can then turn to their Hand Rolls, Nigiri, Sashimi, or Sushi Rolls like the Coney Roll (spicy salmon, avocado, crunch, and spicy kani). Their three main chefs, offer a number of enticing rolls (all parve) especially the most popular Leo Roll, which includes spicy tuna, crunch, spicy kani, wrapped with avocado, spicy mayo, and fried onion.
