Dinner or drinks! – Toshi is a genius in the kitchen, and it's his subtle touch that makes the difference. Try his appetizer teryaki chicken wings. They are crisp and tender and sweet and salty all at the same time. How does he do it? Ask to buy a bottle of the restaurant's teriyaki sauce. Thier sauce is better than most of the off-the-shelf sauces and perfect for home barbecue, stir fry or meat fondue. The sunomono is always crisp and fresh tasting. I just wish they served it at lunch as well as dinner. Think about this restaurant next time you have an office party. It will allow everyone to loosen up and really get to know each other.
Best hang out place in Fresno – Tokyo is just an all around fun time. Great food, drinks and music. Be sure to say hello to Tommy and Toshi, the owners. It's a fun place to hang out without the pressure of pick up lines. It's a great place to listen to music and have the best Singapore Slings.
An alternative rock venue in an unlikely 1950's Japanese restaurant setting, the Garden's got dim lighting everywhere but on stage and a bartender whose only conversation is on paper, since the music' – The Scene:
A kitschy 1956-vintage Japanese restaurant in downtown with a flashing neon sign, the Tokyo Garden cocktail lounge looks like an unlikely spot for alternative rock. But with a fully stocked bar and an eclectic crowd pumped up for live music, the restaurant transforms itself with a small stage and plenty of guitars. Every Saturday night at 10, bands play to a pink boa-wearing and leather-clad crowd. Expect a modest cover, and be sure to argue the doorman down if it's more than $3. Friday is karaoke night, a phenomenon that hasn't disappeared from the Fresno repertoire; fortunately, the liquor doesn't stop pouring until the last person leaves.
Must Have Drinks:
Silk panties (vodka and peach schnapps).
Great hideaway! – Small and dark, this downtown Japanese restaurant is better known for its bar and Kareoke stage then its food. Great pre-show hideaway.
