Excellent restaurant which is well located. Great sushi all around. Tried a few different rolls here and they've all been great. Don't miss the little bottle of pepper flakes to add to your sushi - great find !

I was in SF on the weekend and ate dinner between business appointments during the days. This was not the place I was looking for originally; but I was not disappointed and would definitely come back again. The high min-wage has taken it's toll on restaurant prices I'm afraid. I had the chiriashi for $18.49 plus a tip for $20... More

Tokyo Express is a fairly large location here with a solid menu. You'll order at the counter, take a number and find a seat where they bring the food to you. The Hawaiian Poke salad is delicious. It's the traditional chili/soy style - no mayo. Excellent. The other items are good, but the Poke is the stand out.

It was later in the evening when we stopped in for a bite. I had a bowl of udon noodles and they noodles were fresh and the broth was too. Tasted like spring to me. A large bottle of Asahi, some sake....very pleasant. Easy, casual atmosphere. Nice food. I'd easily eat here again.

Tokyo Express is a great choice if you are for example attending an event at the Moscone center and really don't have a lot of time in your hands. This restaurant also stays surprisingly uncrowded even during the biggest rushes, probably thanks to its swift service. The prices really can't be beat though. Mel's across the street will run you...

There for a meeting at the Moscone Center, I went to the restaurant for a quick lunch. I had the special salmon lunch for $7.95. It was very good for the price, with 3 pieces of grilled salmon covered with teriyaki sauce. It also came with miso soup and a salad which were tasty.

Tokyo Express is in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It's bustling, noisy, and bright outside and when you come inside you can get away from all that. There is a big umbrella blocking the light from outside. The menu is nothing special but they have a decent sushi chef who makes a variety of rolls. You get your food... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
