The Banzai Special

Aristotle once said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” No establishment proves this more than Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar. 

The Japanese eatery in Beaumont, which first opened its doors on Dowlen Road in 1996, has proved in its more than 20 years of business that excellence takes time and commitment. Tokyo’s offering of delicious food and unique experiences to Southeast Texas has been a staple to the area, and for good reason.
