I came here with a group of co workers for a staff dinner. We had 10 or 11 of us, and had a hibachi table! Lots of cool fire tricks, and the best fried rice you will ever have! Also you gotta catch the broccoli in your mouth when the chef throws it at you! It was a very fun... More

There are a number of places near here (Rokbonki, Benihana, etc) where the chef cooks your food in front of you and this is one of the larger places. There is a vibrant bar area with a lot of seating both at tables and at the bar. The dining room is quite large with tables of around 7-8 chairs at... More

It is always fun to take the Grandkids to Tsukasa. There are a lot of "chop-chop" restaurants around, but we think this is among the best. The food is prepared to perfection. The kids love "the show". The cooks are very friendly and know all of "the tricks" including turning the onion into a train with smoke coming from the... More

I enjoyed the Sushi and the chicken teriyaki. I sat at a regular table but the hibachi tables looked like a lot of fun

I live near Tsukasa, so I go there several times a year. All of there food is good but I have to order their sushi, whenever I go. It is the best I've had in the northern suburbs. If you like sushi, you have to go here to try theirs.

Tsukasa of Tokyo's service is benihana-style. The staff is efficient and entertaining, ingredients are fresh and the menu & wine list both have plenty of choices. You'll really enjoy your visit here. However, be aware that your clothes will be infused with the scent of everything cooked in front of you. Good for business or a date night if you... More

I know everyone has been to Ron of Japan or Behihanas, and Tsukasa is similar,but I think they have perfected the style. From the Miso soup to a wonderful take on fried rice,topped by a number of entrees prepared tableside you will be sated.and,of course entertained.

The sushi is fantastic along with the creativity of their rolls. The hibachi cooked food is a favorite of my kids. They love the teriyaki steak and fried rice. Never a bad choice when eating here.
