There have been many changes to sushi options in west Wichita. Kanai has moved most of their focus to takeout, Ninza re-opened their original location and Mizu Sushi recently announced they would be closing soon. Meanwhile, there’s Tokyo Japanese Cuisine which has been offering half-price sushi on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday for many years now.
We recently stopped by over the weekend to not just check out their half-price menu but try some other items as well.

We dropped in for a mid-day meal on Sunday and started off with Kani salad (crab meat, cucumber, masago, spicy mayonnaise and eel sauce), fried oysters, tokogaki (deep-fried octopus balls), and hamachi kama (broiled yellow-tail jaw).
It was a beautiful and delicious array of different dishes that would have been more than enough as a meal itself. The Kani salad was light and flavorful. I loved the mix of masago, spicy mayonnaise and eel sauce. It provided a bright zing to each bite. The hamachi kama was reminiscent of meals I had growing up. The yellowtail was very tender and was easy to pull apart.
We were starting to get full but the whole point of our visit was sushi.
Our sushi order consisted of a Sweetheart Roll (shrimp tempura, crabmeat, smoked salmon, shrimp, avo, eel sauce), Sakura Roll (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, crab stick, masago and avo), smoked salmon sashimi, and salmon sashimi.
There’s no question, Tokyo Japanese Cuisine has my favorite sashimi in town. Some other places around town give you these thinly cut slices of fish. Then there’s Tokyo Japanese Cuisine who gives you big chunks of tender fish that nearly melt in your mouth.
The quality of the sushi was great. Everything felt fresh and of superb quality. I’ve been going for years and it’s easily been on my unpublished list of my top 50 favorite restaurants in Wichita.
Adding to the excellent food has been the even better service from wonderful people. I think people can really make or break a restaurant and at Tokyo Japanese Cuisine, you’ll find some of the nicest people in the industry.
