If you prefer a quieter ambiance don't go elsewhere, just book for an early sitting. Everything is excellent about Tokyo Tina; it's just that those who may be a little hard at hearing will find it more comfortable when the restaurant is not buzzing with lots of patrons.

Whilst the ambiance was nice and the flavors great, the portion sizes were minuscule.
We were encouraged to share such minuscule dishes and were quite disappointed when we all (6 of us) left hungry. The prices were accordingly over inflated
We had the fish main course in a tasty broth with tiny amounts of cabbage. The dish had 4 bite size fish pieces. So my partner and I both had two.
So I’m disappointed to say I won’t be recommending it.

I had originally booked in for the bingo academy brunch for my bday but turned out it wasn’t running throughout Jan. to make up for it TT have us 2 hours of complementary drinks which was pretty generous of them. Service was great and the food on point! Will definitely be going back - have done the bingo before and it’s a great experience!

Had a night out with my daughter, great cocktails and starters. We made a poor choice with our main. We chose the pork hock. It was too oily and the pancakes served with it were very oily as well. The tiramisu mochi was really good so we finished in a high note.

NYE banquet was ok, felt very pre-prepared and was a little hurried by staff. Probably wouldn't bother going back again.

Only downfall was that when you pay by credit card they don't tell you that you have to pay a surcharge.

Great food, service was good but slow at beginning with drinks. It was Monday and only 1 bartender.
Floor staff good, always there to upsale snacks or more drinks.
The music is very loud and it is hard to talk to your friend.
Overall a great evening. Been there many times and will go back for sure.

Our booking was from 3:15-5:15pm.
We didn't get seated to our table until 3:40pm. We didn't get service until 10-15mins later.
We were waiting until 4:10pm to get our first dish of edamame and corn balls. Then it took another 20mins for the next dish to come out. Fried rice was not put out until the end of the meal, when I asked where it was. When booking, we were told 6 dishes to pick, and on the day we were told 5 dishes.
I was called the day before on Friday by a staff in your restaurant, re-iterated that it was ONLY A 2 HOUR SITTING, and we needed to have the table back at 5:15pm.
We left before the 5:15pm, there was no reason for us to stay any longer, the whole experience just left a bad taste with everyone.
Given it was $1500 for bottomless brunch and a company function, it was very disappointing.
I have been to your restaurant several times, raved to many people and unfortunately a huge let down.
I also tipped $50, as I believe that workers should be thanked in hospitality.
However, I will have to rethink any large functions at Toyko Tina in future. I still have a $100 birthday gift voucher to use, which I am not keen to be coming back anytime soon. Sorry, not the best feedback, but being a business owner, I would prefer to have honesty so I would know where the areas of improvement are required.

Tasty food, nice ambiance and service. Only thing that, we were there for our anniversary and i selected it from the option menu. But they just gave us a regular table and nothing else. I don't know why i had to chose it as anniversary ?

Personally, I left extremely hungry (I ordered the avocado bao:(which came out as vegan, even though I did not request it to be) and the tuna cone)

It would have been nice to be told that the two things I ordered were not very substantial.

However, the service was great and staff were extremely friendly and altered the lights in our private room to create better ambience. They also kept checking to see if we wanted more drinks, which was great.

I understand 'fine dining' but I think portion sizes are extremely overpriced for how big they are, and my friends also agreed on this. Perhaps if there was a greater selection of dishes to put in the middle of the table or more sides eg; sushi, seaweed salad etc, this problem would be resolved.

Had a great dinner at Tokyo Tina with girlfriends. Food was fresh & delicious and staff were friendly, attentive & helpful. We were allowed to sit & chat after the meal without being rushed out the door like a lot of restaurants seem to do these days. A great evening all round - will be back!

Had to change the receipt 3 times because incorrect things put on it. Some staff were attentive but they lady who rang up our bill was quite rude and short. The food was disappointing, the same chilli salt flavoured most of our meals to the point we couldn't taste anything else.

-Some of the Food was a bit of a let down (the BAO).
-The BAO was incredibly messy and all we could taste was butter.
- Also, we were the only table seated (table of 2) then had another couple sat directly next to us in a fully open dining room. it was really awkward and we joked about it with the other couple.
- Prawns were good.
- overall a bit two expensive for what we had.

Bingo Brunch at Tokyo Tina's is always fun. The menu is bright and inventive. Highlights are the snapper, salmon and the ever-delicious karage chicken. The service is swift and friendly. Bottomless cocktails ensures a fun time is had by all. The fabulous Valerie Hex was hosting on my last visit, but whoever it is will ensure that you enjoy the day.

The boa was excellent, bibimbap was disappointing and the butterfly chicken was slightly underdone. Service was friendly and attentive. The music was on the loud side. Very popular and I would return. I liked the old Japanese signs on the restaurant facade.

Food was great, service was outstanding, very good value with the alcohol. Tokyo Tina catered to my vegan friend very well! The Bingo was a lot of fun and a memorable experience.
My only criticism would be that there wasn't enough food. It was delicious, but I think there could've been a bit more to go around. Other than that, it was AMAZING.

Sat down and the table was wobbly. Asked for tap water and received sparkling. Server was helpful with suggestions although did not come back to order within a decent time; another server stopped to help. My drink was dropped in the midst of moving plates around on the table. The spill was not cleaned and I told the server near the end of dinner that there was glass under the table next to us that was noticeable once the table cleared although the server took the next wave of customers to the table anyways. We waited a long while for our bill to come; we even asked another server for it once he finished clearing tables. In the end, the hostess came over and cleared our table and brought our bill/took payment. Some dishes like the ramen and bbq eggplant were delicious and some just average. The service was the most disappointing considering this was our first visit and we loved sister restaurant Hanoi Hannah.

We met at lunch for a birthday. The service was fantastic... we had a leisurely time and at no point did we feel rushed. We ordered as we went .. .and things came out quickly and were very tasty. Maybe give the fried chicken pieces a pass, as they were not terribly interesting. The asparagus was good, and my friend who had the kingfish liked it. We shared a crispy avocado bao and it was fantastic.

Ok I appreciate how busy the venue is and only a handful of staff to cater but when you ask for a drink and then see people who come after you being served you tend to get a bit cranky especially when you are paying the all you can drink price. First time you can excuse, second time it happens no. Food was tasteless, dry and very ordinary. I will say once I made a complaint staff did make sure we were looked after but unfortunately by then we had had enough. Too many people, not enough staff, noise level high. Food below par. Not that enjoyable.
