      1. re: DeisCane

        Tokyo Hibachi opened today -- it is under the Orthodox hashgacha of Vaad of Metrowest. Enjoy!

          Someone I know at the Vaad gave me a preview menu (and told me specifically not to circulate it),

          But here is the contact info:
          238 Morris Ave Springfield NJ 07081
          Tel.: 973-258-1158 • Fax: 973-258-1198
          Sun-Thurs 11-9
          Friday 11-2
          Sat 7-12

          Menu is very limited, Vegtables/Chicken/Beef Teriyaki or Hibachi Style, Chicken Wings.
          Some typical appetizers. No sushi.

            OK, so it's in "downtown" Springfield. That's close enough for kosher keepers in Maplewood, Livingston, Millburn and even South/West Orange. Hope it's worth supporting!

            1. re: vallevin

              thanks for the info. so strange that there's no website, or even facebook page...

              1. re: noya

                Huge mistake these days not to have a web presence on opening day. It takes so little money and time too!

                1. re: DeisCane

                  I agree, hopefully theyre tackle that soon!

              2. re: vallevin

                What is a price range? Is it open Motzi Shabbat?

                1. re: grishania


                  I only had a mock-up menu, but according to that, yes they will open Motzei Shabbos and lunch plates were under 10, dinner plates under 15.

                  1. re: vallevin

                    the restaurant is open until 12 am on Sat. night

        2. If anyone goes there, please let us know how it is. It would be so great to have a good restaurant there. Are there any other kosher places in Springfield?

            There's a kosher bagel shop and an ice cream shop (newly kosher). There used to be a shawarma place. It closed about 3 years ago.

            1. re: DeisCane

              New article/review on the restaurant. Hopefully it's getting its footing.


              1. re: DeisCane

                They expanded the menu last week - its nice that there are a bunch of new options - mostly chinese.

                1. re: dannygrl45

                  went there on monday= owner is sooooooooo nice and food was pretty good! good service and lunch specials were very reasonable. Even my 3 year old found something to eat.
