I went in for dinner the other night with a few of my friends, and i have to say it was not that great.
I ordered Filet costing me about $25.00, but i figured that it would be good. My family came in a couple of time before and they said it was a nice place. But when i ate there, the only thing good was the seasoning that they used. Most places put teriyaki sauce on everything, but this place doesnt, which was why i liked it..other than that my filet tasted like it was old. I mean if i was gonna spend money on a filet, than i was thinking it was gonna taste good. This place is not all its cracked up to be. I would not recommend it at all.

I tried Toyama for the first and last time in mid October 2008. I came in with a group of about 9 others and we chose to eat at a grill table.

The decor is old and and dusty. The restaurant is dark and depressing. Tables were greasy and the condiments were covered in sauces, dust and who knows what else. I'd have walked out but I was a guest of new friends. The food itself was cooked at our table but very slowly. We had to wait 15 minutes for initial service and we were there right after they'd opened and were the only customers in the restaurant. Most of our orders were just plain wrong. We got wrong appetizers, entrees and drinks.

The food arrived slowly and there was much delay (20 minutes) in serving time from entree #1 to entree #9). The scallops I had were extremely overcooked and rubbery and the food had so much MSG my tongue became numb. I've never had this problem at any other asian restaurant. I know I have no shellfish allergy., so I assume this was the cause.

Service overall just seemed disinterested and put out to have to serve us. The food portions were moderate, yet quite expensive for what we received. Everyone who worked there that day appeared to be in or just out of high school with no adults supervising. Maybe that's due to it being a Sunday but it still seemed strange. I have no idea how this low quality place stays open especially since it is hidden behind a Publix grocery store. I would fully recommend avoiding Toyama. Hope this helps.

My husband and I used to really enjoy eating at Toyama. But the last few times have been just terrible! There are about 15 kids that work there all walking around not doing anything. It took at least 20 minutes for someone to get our drink order. We were about to walk out, but we needed to be somewhere and were starving. The table cloths have been dirty, when you go reach for the soy sauce there is a thick nasty sticky film all over the soy bottles, and the tray they sit on is dirty and pretty gross. Our sushi sat ready for our waitress to bring over to us for at least 15 minutes. My husband finally had to get up and bring it to our table. So sad this place was really nice in the beginning, but something has really changed... hopefully they can get it together again in the meantime they have lost us as customers.
