Food was authentic and tasty - the karaage chicken was crispy, pork Katsu and Teriyaki chicken were very flavoursome. Would definitely recommend.

We just finished our dinner at Tomi tonight. I will rate 5 stars for the food, but the guy who served our table tonight really made us unhappy. I don’t know his name. He wears an earring and has yellow hair tied. He obviously has...More
