Tokyo Tokyo (東京 東京) (Romanization: Tōkyō Tōkyō) is a Japanese cuisine restaurant chain in the Philippines.

History

The first Tokyo Tokyo restaurant opened on April 22, 1985 at the Quad Carpark (later Park Square 1) in Makati and at the time was the first Japanese fast-food restaurant to serve unlimited rice with its dishes. [2] [3] The chain initially served Japanese dishes such as tempura, tonkatsu, yakisoba, sushi and sashimi. When it opened its first restaurants in 1985, other Japanese restaurants were more traditional; the 'mainstreaming' of the chain's market contributed to the restaurant chain's growth. [3]

By the end of 2013, Tokyo Tokyo had 50 locations nationwide. [3]

As of 2018, Tokyo Tokyo is owned by Hansbury Inc., under the One Food Group, which also owns the Philippine franchise for KFC and Mister Donut. [4]

A buffet can be either a sideboard or a system of serving meals in which food is placed in a public area where the diners serve themselves. A form of service à la française, buffets are offered at various places including hotels, restaurants, and many social events. Buffet restaurants normally offer all-you-can-eat food for a set price, but some measure prices by weight or by number of dishes. Buffets usually have some hot dishes, so the term cold buffet has been developed to describe formats lacking hot food. Hot or cold buffets usually involve dishware and utensils, but a finger buffet is an array of foods that are designed to be small and easily consumed only by hand, such as cupcakes, slices of pizza, foods on cocktail sticks, etc.
