Other comments/story/review - Tokyo Kitchen offers basic Japanese fare Americans are used to. There is a selection of appetizers, yakisoba and combination plates such as teriyaki chicken, hibachi chicken, teriyaki beef and so on. I had the teriyaki chicken (which came with miso soup, salad, side of fried rice and vegetables) and a Pepsi (free refills). The fried rice seemed fresh, but bland. The vegetables were some grilled broccoli, bean sprouts, carrots. Those were OK. The chicken itself wasn't bad, but it was all dark meat. I didn't think it was too fresh either. Something about the texture and taste led me to think that it had been sitting around in a fridge/freezer for a little longer than a while. Not overly sweet, and garnished with sesame seeds. This plate was very reminiscent of something you would get in the fast food court at the mall, only bigger.
The salad was a small bowl of American Blend (iceberg, red cabbage, carrots) with some very light, sweet sesame soy dressing. The miso soup was very standard, but was too salty.
Conclusion - I thought this place was just OK. I do recommend it if you want a quick, large dish of teriyaki chicken or beef. I can see myself returning with a friend or family member if we are in the area. I won't go out of my way for it though.
