This place is a hidden gem in Stillwater. You order meat and cook it in a soup. It's called "Shabu Shabu." The sauce in the soup is delicious and the owner is almost always there. He is entertaining and will show you how to cook and eat the food if you are a newbie. Make reservations because they fill up fast and plan to spend a good hour and half there. It is pricey but so good. I recommend the steak and pork belly meat with the sauce that is called "Mongolian sauce" I believe. Finish that delish meal with a stop down road at Blue Spruce for some amazing gelato! That's a good Stillwater night!

We always enjoy Tokyo Pot. We cook our own food right at the table. The food is always fresh and nicely served. We especially like the extra sauces. Wait staff is A+.

Do not visit Stillwater Oklahoma without going to the Tokyo Pot. This little gem is tucked in an old warehouse building on a side street off Main downtown. It is a wonderful dining experience that you need to allow at least an hour to enjoy. My wife and I eat there 3 times a month or more. Think The Melting Pot meets healthy Asian cuisine in a quaint romantic setting. The large beef plate is the way to go. The owner Dean is most always there and loves to demonstrate the various ways you can mix the many sauces and veggies with the beef that you cook it hot broth. The secret to the perfect mouth watering bite is to dip it in the raw egg just before eating it. Wash it all down with an ice cold Stella and you will be in culinary Heaven.
Only negative is they are not allowed to sell wine, a nice Pinot Grigio would take this to the next level. Reservations are needed on weekends for sure. Service is like most Stillwater experiences that employ college students, sometimes it's perfect and sometimes it very lacking. All depends on the server you get. Food is always amazing and Dean is very entertaining

Tip number one....make a reservation. :) I came to Stillwater to visit a friend and take him out for his birthday. We like to try new restaurants and he mentioned Tokyo Pot. On the way over I was reading Trip Advisor reviews and it said "make sure you have a reservation". Uh oh, we didn't have one. It must have been a birthday miracle because right when we walked in, they had a cancellation. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that scare you.
The service was wonderful from the minute we entered the restaurant. Our server explained the process and gave us recommendations. She could not have been any nicer. You can pick your broth for your pot and we recommend the spicy broth. We ordered the kobe beef and shrimp and it was incredible. The kobe beef is quite pricey, but worth it. After a few seconds in the broth, the beef melts in your mouth. After your meal, make sure you order a melon popsicle. They also have a green tea popsicle, but the melon is by far the best.
