    Our server was excellent and very hospitable and knowledgeable about their sake and sashimi. The ambiance was nothing like we expected. The beef tataki was pre plated from the fridge and almost glued to the plate.

    The service was quick! We were seated quickly and once we ordered the food came out within a few minutes. We ordered a sake that they didn’t have and the chef himself came to the table to recommend another one that’s comparable to the one we wanted. Overall great service and can not wait to go back!

    Sushi might be ok but rest is not. Frozen chicken fingers for a chicken bao. Very disappointing. Papaya salad with mayo sauce?!?! No peanuts, no fresh herbs. Datsun is 100 times better for less expansive.

    Sushi selection is limited (only sushi rolls, no nigiri sushi; there was sashimi available on the weekend special menu, but it was puzzlingly expensive, inconsistent with the otherwise quite reasonably priced menu). We shared a Philadelphia roll and a spicy salmon roll - they weren’t very good… rubbery, and didn’t seem fresh. Also the soya sauce had a mildly sweet taste to it? I don’t know what that was, but it wasn’t great. We also shared an order of pad thai, which was quite good; served hot with seven big shrimp - generous portion. Wine and beer selection was fine. Tap water served lukewarm. Service was okay. This place was okay, but we were underwhelmed, and I think that the 4.5-star rating on Google must be a mistake.

    Our server was incredibly rude. She never made any interaction with us or try to welcome us.. We were an inconvenience to her. There were 2 tables around us filled with men that had Weird happenings going on. People were constantly coming and going from. It was a very sketchy environment and not safe

    They mixed up our order and half of our order was late to the table so the consistency of delivery was delayed. The interior of the restaurant was not very pleasant - very unkempt. The patio was nice and we had originally booked the patio but it looked like it would rain and the only comfortable 4 seater table was not covered by awning - which was a shame. They should have covered the entire area like the neighbouring restaurants. If it was, we would have had a much better experience on the patio vs. the unkempt inside.

    Alright restaurant, our server was great, but we were sat across from the bar and about 45 minutes from the end of our meal, the bartender had a group of his friends come and hang out at the bar talking very loudly, then looking at our table since we were one of the last ones there and shush each other, realizing the topic of conversation was inappropriate. Food was good, could have been better.

    Our waiter although she was nice, she wasn’t very helpful. We mentioned it was someone’s birthday and she did not even congratulate them or gave any extra special treatment which is common and appreciated. She was asking very basic and obvious questions regarding our food and dropped off like 10 forks when we only asked for 2.

    Tomo is such a cute and modern restaurant. The ambiance is so pretty with Japanese paintings. The Food was ok. Tomo salad was not that flavourful. The chicken wings, fried gyoza and spider roll were not bad. I give it 4 stars because it could be better.
