After reading all of these great comments, I decided to give this place a try. Sushi was very disappointing and the sashimi lacked any taste. Sushi rice was crumbly. The tempura was quite flaky, though. This place is sorely disappointing and I don't see why people keep coming back. As a reference, my wife and I went to try Kisaku on 4th Avenue in San Mateo and had some of the best hamachi ever. Their service was great and miso soup tasted homemade. See review for Kisaku. Never going back to Tokie.

Fresh, fresh, fresh!!! Tokie's is the only sushi place in Foster City that combines fresh sushi with a great atmosphere and crowd. Generally crowded on most days and evenings, you can get great specialty rolls like the Shannon Roll which seems to be a popular one. Can be a bit pricy but the quality makes it worth it. Outside of sushi, they also have a nice selection of Japanese food ranging from tonkatsu to teriyaki. Service is average. Definitely make a reservation if you plan to go during peak lunch or dinner hours.

good sushi but a bit pricey (compared to Isobune or Miyake). Since there's a lack of great restaurants in Foster City, Tokie's is pretty popular and crowded.

Go there in the evening, because for lunch it is not uncommon to spend 45 min waiting until you get your sushi - and its not even cooked :-) Has some of the best sushi I have had on the peninsula. The service is friendly.

Tokie's sushi is always fresh, and reliably delicious. It's the best I've found so far in the area (Palo Alto to Burlingame). And the aquarium is stunning. Sit at the bar, if there's room.

The sushi is very good (4 stars); it's better than Isobune and comparable to Sushi Sam. The entree is average (2.8 stars). I don't remember it being good for Udon. For good Udon, try Mifune or Iroha, both are in Japantown, SF.

You've got to travel quite a ways to get sushi as good as Tokie's. Very fresh, delicious and pleasingly presented. I've been eating there a lot lately.

Nice, friendly place. The sushi and the teriyaki dishes are great. Also cool fish tank behind the sushi bar.

Great lunch specials, the Donburi is excellent, and quite filling. The sushi is some of the best in the area, and one should never leave without sampling the Shannon Roll.
