”First time trying Tomo tonight with my husband and 5 year old and we had a blast! Love the vibe inside. Our chef was fantastic and very interactive. Our waitress was kind, kept our glasses full, and checked on us frequently. Staff was all wearing masks! We were all appropriately distanced from other families at the table. And the food was great. We had hibachi steak and hibachi chicken. Good yum yum, tasty soup, big portions! Price is worth the variety and amount of food along with special experience. We will be returning soon!” – Lauren Miles
