Excellent food. Beer was cold and the sashimi fresh. The omelette (dashmaki) was over cooked and the Pork belly (buta-no-kakuni) has a smell about it. Please stew for longer to remove the Finnish pork smell. Everything else was absolutely awesome and authentic. Keep up the...More

Food was authentic and tasty - the karaage chicken was crispy, pork Katsu and Teriyaki chicken were very flavoursome. Would definitely recommend.

We just finished our dinner at Tomi tonight. I will rate 5 stars for the food, but the guy who served our table tonight really made us unhappy. I don’t know his name. He wears an earring and has yellow hair tied. He obviously has...More

First I had the fried dumplings. Don’t let the picture in the menu fool you, even though it’s folded like gyoza, it’s not. It’s really fried, which I found weird for a Japanese restaurant. The taste was good though. Then I had sushi: the seared...More
