Dating back over one hundred years, nikkei cuisine originated from Peru’s large Japanese community, fusing together the delicate flavours of Japan with the fiery and colorful flavours of Peru, and at TokyoLima in Central Hong Kong you can experience this type of cooking for yourself. Styled like a Japanese izakaya, TokyoLima’s casual vibe makes it the perfect setting for a number of different occasions, whether it's a catch up with friends or a first date. Begin your meal with some beef tataki with sea urchin, ponzu sauce, kyuri salad and black truffle, or the ceviche, before moving on to the tacu tacu (rice and lentils with vegetable stir-fry, chimichurri and yellow chili paste) or the langosta acechada (grilled lobster with sour chili butter and charred carrot).
The selection of small plates like the nikkei mussels pot with yellow chilli butter, bacon, coriander and sourdough bread are great for sharing around the table with friends, while other delicious choices on the menu include an array of nikkei sushi. We recommend the futomaki (cabbage, beetroot, avocado, quinoa pop, pickled shiitake and garlic miso mayo). The drinks menu is as creative as the food, boasting a lengthy list of inventive cocktails as well as an impressive collection of over twenty different sakes. You’ll find TokyoLima located on ground floor of the Car Po Commercial Building on Lyndhurst Terrace in Central Hong Kong. Snag a table by making a reservation in advance!
Amazing food, amazing service, amazing restaurant. Could not have been happier - will definitely be back. Highly recommend the chefs menu for value and incredible variety and quality of dishes.
Excellent food and effective attentive smooth service. Very lively environment. Thoroughly enjoyed all we ate with a special highlight to the octopus skew. Highly recommended!
Great service, delicious food & a lovely ambiance in spite being a relatively full house for a Tuesday night (would have thought noise would be an issue but was not).
We had an excellent night out at TokyoLima. We had booked for a table at 9.45pm as there were no earlier timeslots, but we went along to TokyoLima's happy hour at 6pm to enjoy a few drinks in the hope that an earlier table would come up. I had the drink "There's Something About Mary" is TokyoLima's take on a bloody mary with beetroot juice and a house made mix - peppery, bursting with tomato flavour and hint of beetroot sweetness. Awesome start! As was the Mrs' mocktail. We were lucky that evening, managing to get an earlier table and were seated by 6.30pm! Our table went with the omakase menu and what an experience it was! TokyoLima's signature dishes are indeed outstanding and with 9 generous courses, we were stuffed! Highlights were the S.S. salad and the prawn acevichada! The TokyoLima makis were also very well made, brimming with fresh maguro and sushi rice that delicately falls apart in the mouth. We will be back again to taste the other dishes!
You are in for a treat! At TokyoLima you'll be able to taste flavours and combinations you've never experienced before!! The food is fresh and delicious and the staff are super attentive but never came across as pushy!! The cocktails were fun and inventive and oh so yummy!!
Had la causa (very tasty with great tempura shrimp on top), the salmon (really nice but the fisheggs on top are too overpowering, just scoop them off) and the ceviche. (Good quality but for us it could have a bit more acidic) We totally! loved the octopus skewers and the taku taku!! Nice service, good interior and great overall vibe. Good price quality experience so will definitely be back, lots of more things on the menu we want to try.
Great food - interesting flavours, generous portions. Lovely decor in a nice environment. TokyoLima is fusion cuisine that actually works - where the combination of two different cuisines are complementary rather than clashing with one another!
Cocktails were great. Would recommend the Lady Marmalade. The Valentine's Day menu was well thought through; good balance of meat, seafood and vegetables. The service was a bit rushed during the first half of our meal, but took on a better pace for the second half. Would be inclined to go back and try the full menu.
Great venue, great service, great food. The menu is very interesting , not like anything else so if you are looking for something different in a lovely space then this is the place for you. Can't wait to return.
We'd been looking forward to this dinner, but left feeling quite disappointed. Maybe it's better to visit when it's not the weekend and the kitchen has more time to dedicate to the dishes. Our server was lovely and attentive, but that didn't make up for the disappointing meal. We started with the ceviche nipon as an entree (appetizer to the Americans) and despite looking colourful and tasty, it lacked flavour and was quite bland. Unfortunately, this set the tone for the rest of the evening. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was memorable. The music in the restaurant was also very loud, so it was hard for our table to even hear each other.
Food was exceptional. All the dishes were tasty and well-made. The only criticism we had was that food was extremely slow! Our entire omasake experience took 3+ hours. Understood it was their first week of opening so service may have been slow but I hope next time we go we don't spend 3+ hours having dinner!
Very creative and delicious food. Great atmosphere - although the volume of the music could be turned down a bit in the dining section to facilitate conversations. Service is outstanding and super friendly. We will be back!
Great food. Great ambiance. Great drinks. Really top notch restaurant that is constantly evolving it's menu items to make them better and better. The sake menu is fantastic and the mixologist behind the cocktails is just amazing.
Nice food with reasonable price. If you like to try more variety from the menu, Omkasae is highly recommend. The only thing was I had to return the table before 8:30pm, I couldn't finish all my food within one and half hour.
Great interior deco and stylish environment. Staffs are very enthusiastic hope they can keep it up not only just becoz it's just newly opened. Food are tasty and price are reasonable, would return for def
Savory items were delicious. Dessert paled a little in comparison, because the savory dishes were too good. Service though was a little lacking and rushed. Courses were served before the previous was done. Water was not served promptly, not even refilled when dishes were just served. The glasses were empty a little too long a handful of times.... Food was good, and that made up for the experience.
Very good food and nice variety Slow service at first - then our server changed and was very good Very loud music - could not converse at our table - asked for music to be adjusted and it was for a while and then adjusted up to be louder
Try the omasake menu~ nice food and very full. Like the starter, shushi and grilled pork rib. My friend like the fried chicken. Quiet environment. The restaurant has a low profile door which is easy to miss.
Good food. Though we had booking kept us waiting close to 30mins past the booking time. Every 10 minutes after the booking time, we were told "few more minutes. setting up table now". Could have handled it better - be upfront, give us the menu, ask us to order before we got to the table, offered a drink etc. etc.
hidden door. Cute environment. staff were attentive. Food was delicious and small plates kept coming. the only thing is, for the fact that we had to add money for the mains, they were tiny portions.
Food was lovely, service was good only negative was being given a bit of a crappy table; the back of my chair kept getting knocked each time a server rushed from kitchen to restaurant floor.
Drinks and food was amazing and full of great surprises all along the way!! Beverage manager Isabella was spot on with the drinks as well as service staff Abel!!
Decent menu, although not particularly Peruvian (I lived in Peru for three years, so have some experience ). some kinks in the service process mean ordering quite slow, and very few staff empowered to take orders. Once this is addressed, will work better.
Great food (we had five of the small plates / skewers as a meal for two) and drinks. Fantastic service. Would definitely recommend and plan to return again.
The food portion is a bit too much than expected and all the dishes are so delicious. The cocktail drinks were nice too espcially the inca sour.
Great atmosphere, value for money. Service was attentive and staffs were cery friendly indeed. Personally the food was ok but not veey surprising. Will definitely go again.
The food was absolutely delicious and the setting is fun, yet intimate. Great drinks too - long cocktails and superb quality sake. Try the beetroot causa!
Food was innovative and fresh - lots of variety in the Japanese and Peruvian space so something for everyone. If you get rice, definitely go for the Peruvian (coriander + garlic + butter) rather than the steamed!
Decent food and cocktails, but the omakase has a lower value than the a la carte, which bugs me slightly. Staff wasn't most attentive as we raised our hands during the night several times without being noticed.
Excellent food and service. Good atmosphere and dining environment. Only comment is that it's quite noisy due to the loud music . Would definitely recommend this restaurant to all.
Conveniently located in Central. Excellent cocktails. Great food. Very fresh! Good service. Nice ambience! Will be back again for sure! Bar area can be a bit noisy.
Went with a group of friends on a Tuesday night and the place was packed by 7:30pm. Yummy, different and interesting dishes. Great food sharing. Fun atmosphere.
Nice atmosphere, good food, not always very sophisticated but very tasty, and extremely pleasant and attentive service. Really recommend for a night out with friends.
Very good food, wide range of choice and thoughtful and warmful service Very good value for money ! Really nice experience, beautiful venue, nice atmosphere
Really liked this place. The food was amazing. My favourite was tuna and watermelon ceviche. Will definitely recommend this place and will be coming back.
The food was excellent but the service was very slow , and charge us the wrong bill . Luckily we check the bill , if not we would have paid for someone else's dinner .
Interesting mix of japanese and peruvian flavors but food quality is just OK (prok meat chewy, dessert too sweet...) and I will recommand not to take their "degustation menu" as its mainly low quality dishes
Congratulations on the new Tokyolima. Overall a good experience, although there were some small new opening menu and service issues that i'm sure will be refined.
I thought the food was average and there were issues at the bar - my husband's cocktail never arrived. Great looking restaurant and good service though.
Great if you prefer food with powerful flavours. I insist on trying their dessert! The atmosphere is comfortable but lively, perfect for a Friday evening.
Good food and happening spot but food service could be improved. Appetizers came way too fast and the mains took way too long to arrive.
Pushed by the restaurant at the beginning of the lunch to leave early because there is a second turn :( Not nice to start the dinner with pression.
