Tokyo Asia Fusion--Abilene's newest Asian cuisine

Tokyo Asian Fusion has a large menu, sushi, hibachi dishes, noodles, fried rice, even Kobe steak and lobster.  We were greeted and seated promptly.  There were very few customers the evening we went. The service was attentive but we also happened to be acquainted with the server.  There is a sushi bar area, a hibachi area and booths and tables. The place has a modern decor with neon and low lighting, black/gray furnishings and geometric booths. The booths are great for dates.

We were in the mood for sushi rolls. Let me issue a disclaimer.  I have only had sushi in land-locked locations in Texas so I am not a true expert on sushi. That being said, the rolls at Tokyo were very fresh and sauced sparingly. Other places I have eaten sushi have been a bit too generous with the mayonnaise and "crunchies".  Tempura crumbs should not be on the roll unless tempura is in the roll itself.  I apologize for the lack of pictures. We dug in before I had a chance to take some. Our order consisted of rolls of spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy crawfish, and a California roll. The seafood was cooked in all but the spicy tuna for those who are timid about eating raw fish.  All were priced between $4.00-$7.00.  Some had rice on the outside and some had seaweed. All were good. I liked the spicy tuna and shrimp tempura best.

Next time we will try the hibachi, a chef's special roll and perhaps some noodle dishes...don't think we can afford the Kobe beef. I hope that Tokyo makes it since it is something fun and unique for Abilene. Give it a try. There are specials at lunch. Located in the same strip mall area as the Abilene Public Library south branch.
