Extremely extremely rude staff, booked through a groupon voucher, after trying numerous times to book a table they refused to book us in and quite literally shouted down the phone "everyone has groupon vouchers, we'll take no more bookings". Surely if that's the case they shouldn't have sold so many in the first place and should refund their customers. Anyhow, i cannot speak for the actual food, but if you're considering buying a groupon voucher or expecting good customer service i would not recommend this restaurant!


Tokyo Jo's is very good. The staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful and efficient, the chef came out to speak to us and the excellent sushi, followed by grilled chicken skewers and rice was very much up to standard. However, we followed up with an order for "rare" grilled beef, which nevertheless was very overdone. When asked, the very friendly chef said that they cooked it that way because that is the way the English like it. I really cannot believe that people who had really really enjoyed an extensive variety of sushi would want their beef over done, especially when they had ordered it rare. However, we would certainly return, but making sure that our orders were thoroughly understood before submitting them to the kitchen.
