We stopped here in the midst of a road trip after reading reviews. Glad we listened!!! The food was fantastic! Sushi was fresh and delicious, happy family was yummy and the best sweet and sour chicken I've tasted! Even the kids dug in. Wait staff was even better. Definitely recommend this as a stop!
In a very unassuming location right off of Rt. 2, Hana Mizuki is a very good option for hibachi and all the excitement / entertainment that comes with it. The food is very good whereas the drinks are only average.

We came for dinner. Service is good and prompt. My dining companions started with the seafood miso soup which was tasty with a nice balance and heat. I had the cauliflower cilantro salad which was ok.We had a sichuan string bean, asparagus shrimp and a duck in plum sauce. The dishes came across as too sweet for my taste and the food was ok.
We were in the Concord area and decided to try thisplace. This was a late lunch or early supper (about 4.30pm). We shared a seaweed salad (nice pickling) and some specials. The appetizer was a sweet miso mango salmon. Very nice. The two mains were spicy tuna maki and sweet miso yellowtail maki. The maki has 8 pieces each so there was plenty. I wish they were not so enamored of mayonnaise--a little goes a long way. Be aware: Sushi House is on the 2nd floor and we found no elevator. Also, they do not take Amex.

I really wanted to give them a chance. We ordered a large takeout lunch order and they managed to get almost everything wrong. The soups were stacked on top of each other and melted through the plastic containers and spilled melted soup all over the place and put melted plastic in the soup making it inedible. The orders were supposed to come with an appetizer but didn't and the one special request was ignored. To be fait they offered to redo everything but lunch was long over and everyone was frustrated and back to work. We will not repeat this error.

I beg to differ with the last reviewer whose generosity got the best of him in his accolades for this place. After all, 95% of his reviews are either very good or excellent. For me, Beijing Tokyo does not deserve anything close to five stars nor would I even hint that itâs anywhere close to being the best Chinese restaurant in Acton. It might actually be the worst.After such a long, drawn out renovation period and highly anticipated opening, Beijing Tokyo has finally appeared, at least in the eyes of Cherry Wonderdog, with a whimper. At most, this is a three star restaurant, but it clearly has issues, and I sincerely hope they get worked out fast or else weâre going to have to witness yet another closing. Thereâs a reason why Beijing Tokyoâs lunch traffic is abysmal, and itâs not because the restaurant is new. Itâs because everything here is mediocre. And as such, it merits three stars. For starters, itâs hard to tell what kind of restaurant Beijing Tokyo wants to be. Is it Chinese with a Japanese flair or is mostly Japanese that gives lip service to the Chinese diner? Clearly thereâs an identity crisis, and instead of the restaurant marrying the two as the best of both worlds like other dual ethnic restaurants, the two seem to be in conflict. Chinese food does seem to get the shaft here, as no soup is served with a Chinese luncheon whereas miso is served for a Japanese one. Someone better advise management that soup is a staple in almost every single Chinese luncheon so if youâre not going to serve it, you better deliver something outstanding instead. Unfortunately, that just didnât happen. Our chicken with mixed vegetables and chicken with ginger and scallions luncheons were just okay, accompanied by (warm, not hot) fried rice that was supposedly Japanese (go figure!) along with an eggroll / beef stick. The plates were designed to deliver as much sauce for these appetizers as I would have expected soup. In addition, this was the first time that I can remember that I actually resorted to kikkoman soy sauce to add a bit of kick to my meal. There was nothing else offered -- no mints, no orange slices, no fortune cookies. For $9, ($10 for beef, $11 for shrimp), and another $3.50 to add soup, it felt overpriced.The atmosphere are Beijing Tokyo was dark, dreary, and even a bit uncomfortable. There were several waiters who were sitting around without much to do -- some staring at us eat. When ours took our order and later served the meals, she seemed completely new, out of sorts, and untrained for the job. As for the dining room, there were no decorations on the wall, nothing to suggest that this was either a Japanese or Chinese restaurant besides one picture in the back. Even the placemats were depressing -- just a plain white piece of paper. And rather than Asian music, there was this intrusive, piped-in pop/rap from recent teeny bopper artists that I might have expected to hear in a college dorm. It was totally inappropriate here and a huge turnoff.For me, Beijing Tokyo has tried and failed (at least after its first month) in introducing a hipster approach to Americanized Asian food. I wish places like this would stick to the basics and try to differentiate themselves on what comes out of the kitchen instead of playing around with the basics like value, ambiance, and customary deliverables. After all, weâre talking about Chinese and Japanese food in Acton, and there are other choices such as Ginger Court where this isnât an issue.

I've been looking for a hibachi in the vicinity and this was fun. The restaurant looks a bit dated, but the food was good and the show decent. Went with my two teenage kids and would totally go again. The appetizer shrimp were delicious. We had the garlic noodles and we all 3 liked them.
