Tokyo City on JhongShan 2nd Road has recently undergone a facelift. Although there are 3 other outlets in Kaohsiung, this one has the most extensive menu and the newest interior. As you'd expect, Tokyo City is famous for its Japanese food, but it also serves a wide variety of quality Chinese and other ethnic foods. The restaurant chain is quite well established in the city and many regular customers have been enjoying the fresh seafood and unique dishes for years.

Peter, the manager of the new restaurant, hopes that it will attract customers who enjoy a classy dining experience at reasonable prices. Previously Tokyo City offered buffet-style dining, but the buffet is no longer available. Instead, patrons can choose from all kinds of dishes, with something for everyone! Sashimi, hot pot, BBQ skewers, creative vegetable dishes and all kinds of seafood are on the menu. Plan to spend at least NT$300 per person and more if you order the specialty items and drinks. A large selection of alcohol is available at reasonable prices.

The fried shrimp and pineapple dish (NT$250) and the bacon-wrapped mushroom skewers (NT$40) come recommended. Even if you are not a fan of bacon, these are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and worth every calorie! Other recommended dishes include spare ribs in tangerine sauce ($180) and tofu in pumpkin sauce (NT$130). The most popular dish is the fish mandible (NT$100), which is basically the lower jaw of a fish.

The first floor of the restaurant seats up to 150 people and the second floor will be open soon, so there's plenty of room for large parties. An English menu is available, along with several English-speaking employees. Only a 5-minute walk from SOGO department store, Tokyo City is in a prime location. And since it's open late, you can devour the bacon-wrapped mushroom skewers into the wee hours of the morning.
