I was working almost across the street and only had 45 minutes for lunch so I went there 2 days in a row. Had the Shrimp teriyaki lunch box. Very good in a smoky grilled shrimp way, not a sweet sugary sauce way. Good amount of food. Next day I had 2 avocado salmon rolls. Big chunks of salmon and... More

Dropped in for lunch as my wife fancied Asian food, fantastic value and good service We selected the lunch combo comprising of miso soup, green salad and the lunch in the box specials (one a steak teriyaki the other a curry). Service was friendly and pretty quick, well worth the top tip.

My co-worker and I ordered delivery from Hokkaido on a Monday. The food can only be described as so delicious, satisfying and attractive. I ordered Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura and my colleague the Filet Mignon Hibachi Luncheon Special. It arrived hot, very well packaged and outrageously good! We just ordered a 2nd time and my colleague was hosting a prospective... More

We stopped here base on the reviews for some sushi before a show. First none of the plates, dishes, spoons or little sauce containers matched, not bad but weird. No draft beer even though its on the menu. The gyoza were perhpas the worst ive ever had, mushy and almost sour in flavor. The shrimp tempura roll had a big... More

My brother and I were headed to another Japanese restaurant in the area when my brother spotted Hokkaido. A quick check of Trip Advisor gave it a thumb's up. I had the sashimi lunch and he had the shrimp tempura lunch. Both were very good. Don't be scared off if there are only a few people there, I don't know... More

Some of the best Asian food I have ever had. It is a shame more people don't go there. They use the highest quality meats and vegetables that money can buy. My whole staff enjoys eating there!

Been by Hokkaido many times and finally decided to give it a try. Nice selection of sushi specials, nothing we've seen elsewhere in the area; very fresh and delicious. Large bowls of miso soup were excellent. Seafood salads were also large, crunchy, cold and served with sesame seeds on celery sticks - very refreshing. Ginger dressing on the regular salad... More

We came in and were the only table which was sad, this place is truly a gem. We started with two sushi rolls, Alligator and Tuna Amazing. These were extremely different and very good. The flavors and textures were awesome. The tuna was slightly smokey which was interesting. Everything tastes very fresh. We then had the miso soup and salad... More

The place was almost entirely empty and it is beyond me why it isn't more popular. The food was great, the servings were large and reasonably priced. The dinners also come with a salad and a miso soup. Highly recommend.
