Tokyo Monster Sushi opens in Birch Bay


Tokyo Monster Sushi opened in Birch Bay Square, bringing an expansive menu of Japanese and Asian cuisine.

The restaurant held a soft opening February 1, and is expected to operate at full-service in the coming weeks. The restaurant is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, though owner Phillip Kim said those hours will shift earlier as the restaurant phases in breakfast, offering Starbucks coffee and Krispy Kreme donuts.

Tokyo Monster Sushi has a sushi bar, cocktail bar and stage where live jazz is anticipated Fridays through Sundays. The menu offerings are ample, with sushi rolls, nigiri, sashimi, Chinese wok, Korean specials, Vietnamese pho, ramen, teriyaki, yakisoba, fried rice, bento boxes, poke, steak, burger, Greek gyro, mozzarella sticks, oyster shooters and more.

“You can taste just about all of the Asian food up here,” Kim said, adding that there are plenty of fish options.

Kim said he selected the Birch Bay Square location because he wanted to bring more Asian food to Birch Bay. Kim previously owned a Tokyo Monster Sushi in Maple Valley, which he said he sold two years ago. He’s owned different sushi and teriyaki restaurants throughout the Puget Sound, including West Seattle, the University District, Kent, Federal Way and Auburn, he said.

As for Kim’s menu favorites, he said the Monster, Godzilla, orange blossom, cherry blossom and rainbow rolls are the most popular.

Tokyo Monster Sushi is located at 8152 Birch Bay Square, suite 202. The business can be reached at 360/526-5047.
