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

History[edit]

The first Tokyo Tokyo restaurant opened on April 22, 1985 at the Quad car park[2] in Makati and at the time was the first Japanese fast-food restaurant to serve unlimited rice with its dishes.[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 is also the owner of the franchise for KFC and Mister Donut in the Philippines.[4]
