Tummy + Tomi = Happy

This time I came here for lunch. The menu is slightly different, with less choices, but the food still tastes good.

I ordered the sashimi lunch, and the fish tasted fresh and good.

Next time I’ll come here for dinner probably, which will hopefully be very soon!

Sashimi Lunch

Very fulfilling! The pieces were large, and I was quite full afterwards.

Second time here, and still especially delicious!

My follow-up review for this restaurant. Read my previous review for this restaurant here

I came back here for lunch on a friday, and this place was packed. The wait was about 15-20 min for a party of 3. The menu was not as extensive as the one for dinner, but I was able to order the Tomi Special Roll again. This time I had it with the lobster salad instead of the hamachi. It was still excelllent, but I prefer the hamachi.

Tomi Special Roll

Lobster salad was good, but I still recommend the hamachi

Daily special

Special of the day was a beef curry rice plate. Good taste, good portion, and comes with 2 croquettes. You can check their website to see what the special of the day is.

Best Japanese Food in Mtn View

If you are looking for authentic Japanes food, Sushi Tomi is the place. You won’t find the super fancy sushi rolls stuffed with every imaginible ingredient here. Just great quality, traditional Japanese. The service and sushi chefs are also very friendly. That’s probably why there is usually a 10-15 min wait even on the weekdays for dinner.

Their 2 item combo for about $14.90 is a great deal if you want to sample their sashimi (tuna and/or salmon), tempura, broiled mackerel, pork cutlet, california roll, spicy tuna roll, sukiyaki, gyoza, or teriyaki beef/chicken/or salmon. I usually rotate among the spicy tuna roll, sashimi, tempura and sukiyaki.

There is also a wide variety of appetizers you won’t find at other Japanese restaurants, such as the “Ochazuke” (Rice in Tea) and “Onigiri” (Rice Balls).

Bottom Line: a must try in Mtn View if you are into Japanese food.

Homey, quality Japanese food

I had tried coming here for lunch before but it was closed, so I tried Monster Sushi nearby, which was filling but of far lower quality. This time I came for a friend’s birthday dinner, and I wasn’t disappointed.

The restaurant has a very homey atmosphere and is located a few blocks off the main University Ave. strip of fancy restaurants and shops. What you get in return for the humble decor is friendly service and high-quality food.

As other users have mentioned before, the quality of the food here is good, but I wouldn’t say SushiTomi ranks as one of my favorite of all time. It’s definitely a place I’d go back to in the future.

Agedashi Tofu

Oh good lord, this is fantastic. The breading isn’t as thick and heavy as other places I’ve tried, and has just the right crispness before giving way to the soft tofu inside. I’d say this is one of the best Agedashi Tofus I’ve ever had.

Nabeyaki Udon

Tasted much like the Nabeyaki Udons I’ve had at other places. Nothing too special about this one, though it was filling.

Menchi-Katsu

I was disappointed with this one – it was too deep-fried and dry for my liking. I usually prefer my menchi-katsu’s to be juicy and flavorful.

great authentic japanese restaurant

Never been to Japan? Imagine what it would be like to eat at an authentic Japanese restaurant and you’ll find all that and more at Sushi Tomi. The restaurant has it all. Entertaining/jovial sushi chefs, excellent sushi, authentic menu items and specials, tatami seating, and even some cute waitresses.

I go for both the ambience and the food. Try the combo meals for a great value. Try everything on the menu for some great food.

Warning though, there’s always a wait!

They never run out of great options

My follow-up review for this restaurant. Read my previous review for this restaurant here

I think I’m going to try and become a regular here. This time I got the chicken udon, the kobe beef skewers, and the fish cakes.

Kobe Beef Skewers

While I’ve never had real Kobe beef, from what I’m heard there’s no way these tasty seven dollar kabobs are the real deal. But that’s fine with me, because this was some tasty meat for a good price. You get eight large chunks and they are well done on the outside but still tender on the inside. The outside might remind you over slightly burned lower quality meat at other places, but the insides make these skewers stand out.

Fish Cakes

If you know what you are getting into, you won’t be disappointed, but as my Japanese friend put it, this dish is like getting a plate of croutons at a French restaurant. This dish is just six semi-circles of imitation crab like meat. Kind of sweet and kind of bland and definitely more suited to being in soup then eating on their own. My bad I guess.

Chicken Udon

The chicken udon was very tasty. The noodles were thick and tastier on their own than most noodles I’ve tried, the broth is worth drinking to the end, and the chicken is pretty good, albeit too fatty.

solid japanese

a couple blocks off castro in a more sparse area, sushi tomi gets surprisingly excellent business. i took this as a good sign when i walked in the door for a midweek dinner.

i was greeted by a small sushi bar and asian sushi chefs behind it on one side, and a second larger room w/tatami seating on the other. sushi tomi has a mom ‘n pop homey feel (like john says below). it took a few minutes to get seated as the place was packed, but ordering was quick and the food came out even quicker. oddly enough, service wasn’t that stellar (no one came by to see how our food was, and we had to ask for our check after 5 minutes of nothing).

overall, a solid choice and i’d have no qualms about returning.

Combination Special

for $15 bucks, i think this combo is an alright deal. it’s a lot of food, and quality is good. if you’re thinking of the sashimi combo, beware that it’s almost the same amount of sashimi that you get w/the combo special. you’re better off getting a combo special w/sashimi & your 2nd choice.

Good quality sushi

Nice small japanese place a couple blocks off Castro. The sushi is good quality and there’s the standard assortment of other japanese goodies. It looks like they have happy hour beer specials and also various daily sushi specials. They also have the pseudo-mat seating where it looks like you’re sitting on the ground but you’re not.

Sashimi Dinner

The yellowtail and tuna was very good, but the salmon was a little stringy. I think the Combination special is a better deal since you can get sashimi with it.

Fresh fish!

Small operation with friendly waitresses and fresh sashimi

Maguro

Two fresh pieces of maguro on top of rice. Very fresh, the sashimi just melted in my mouth.

I always forget about this place since it is tucked away ...

I always forget about this place since it is tucked away off of Castro and I can never find it. But this week I made it there and had the bento box dinner. It’s a great deal — I think it was $14 before tax and tip, and you get: a miso soup with excellent tofu, salad, several pieces of generously sized salmon sashimi, a bowl of rice, and beef sukiyaki. I’ve had better beef sukiyaki elsewhere, in which “better” to me means more vegetables, and a wider variety of vegetables. So it’s not the optimal sukiyaki to me, but it’s still delicious and filling. So for the price and quantity of food, this place rocks, in fact the bento box lasted me for 2 meals. And don’t forget the gummi bears at the door.

Definitely good. The best? Not sure. Worth a try? Of course!

It seems like many seem to think that this place feeds you the most authentic sushi as one can get. I’m not sure about that since I only had a small piece of sushi. But nevertheless, it is pretty good.

The wait ends up being quite long because the place is small and is filled with Japanese customers—first sign of good sushi place.

If I can recall, most of the food available was Japanese food, not Americanized-Japanese food (like Chicken Teriyaki)—the first sign of an authentic Japanese place.

To avoid the wait, I’d get there pretty early. Since this area is filled with restaurants, it’s tough to find a parking space during the peak of the lunch hour. And once you find a place to park, you will have to wait a bit before getting seated.

The service was so-so. The lady that took care of us didn’t pay attention to us all that often. We had to wait a bit to get our bill.

Overall, it’s a place that I’d like to go back to try out their toro. Not that I’m the best sushi critic, but I usually eat toro to personally decide if it’s MY favorite place or not. I’d like to give Sushi Tomi another try just so that I can try their toro.

What’s tough is that there are lots of restaurants here so even though Sushi Tomi is good, I may end up choosing a different place if I’m just looking for a place to eat—like Ryowa.

Unadon (Unagi Donburi)

This was pretty good, but it did not beat the one that I love in Seattle. Still worth it though!

Negitoro Roll

This was definitely good. Of course this is always small tho.
