Since 2007 the hibachi tables at Tokyo Japanese Hibachi and Sushi have been host to many memorable meals that include fire, knives and clanging spatulas. Mr. Adam was a familiar and friendly face greeting patrons who frequented the Fairhope establishment. Recently, he sold the business and moved to Atlanta to pursue other interests. The new faces you will see are those of Andy and Jacky. They are partners and the new owners of the Tokyo Hibachi and Sushi. They purchased the business and took over operations in December of 2015. They have added some booths to the dining area to give it a different look but the menu has remained the same with just with a few special additions. The focus now is not only on quality but also on presentation. They want the food to look as good as it tastes. Jacky spent 12 years working in New York as a sushi chef and brings his talents to Toyko’s sushi bar while Andy’s prowess is unmatched in the kitchen arena. The partners are truly the Yin and Yang of sushi and hibachi. They are also fortunate to have an incredible support staff that recognizes their talent and hard work.
