Tokyo House Restaurant is one of Youngstown’s best-kept secrets. Can Dao, owner of the Tokyo House restaurant on South Avenue, Youngstown, prepares a meal for patrons. Customers said the food is so good that they’ll wait several hours to eat the Asian cuisine.
For 20 years, Dao and his wife, Hin, have owned and operated the restaurant that is open from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, he’s on stage behind his grills. Tokyo House has no website of its own, its listed telephone number is disconnected and they don’t accept credit cards. Despite all of this, Tokyo House remains one Youngstown’s most successful dining destinations.
