of prawns, mussels, or clams, or Cajun sea bass. With

restaurant offers American portions at Tokyo prices
in a Tokyo setting. The décor is a classier version
of a typical Japanese sushi bar, with a big central
sushi counter surrounded by tables and booths for foursomes.
The excellent rolls – sushi rolls of crab meat,
avocado and mayonnaise – are, well … excellent.
Tokio Joe easily dominates Lan Kwai Fong’s Japanese
The essence of Italian dining in Lan Kwai Fong, Va Bene
