Tomodachi prides itself on its featured sushi train, while also accommodating with an a la carte menu of Japanese classics like bento boxes, sashimi and rice and sizzling dishes. After the initial excitement of sitting by their sushi train, playfully choosing dishes at my own free will, I was left with a hefty bill and a not very satiated tummy. I've since decided that based on the many times that I've dined here, nothing spectacular stands out, but Tomodachi IS convenient for a quick lunch at the sushi train while shopping or an appetizing dinner that isn't too expensive in the a la carte dining area. Their wasabi oysters are worth a try, as well as the soft shell crab sushi rolls. Here are a few dishes:

 From left: Chicken Teriyaki with Garden Salad; BBQ Beef on Sizzling Plate; Takoyaki (octopus dumplings); Agedashi Tofu

Soft Shell Crab Bento Box - with agedashi tofu, california sushi, miso-dressed salad and fresh fruit.
Unagi Bento Box - with tempura lotus root, takoyaki, salmon sushi, miso-dressed salad and fresh fruit.
