Fine dining using coupons/vouchers could be hit and miss. I have had some goods ones, but equally some bad ones as well. With the bad ones - you get subpar food and service than you would receive if you paid full price.
Fortunately, no such thing with Tokonoma. The classy dimly lit restaurant is a perfect place for a quiet romantic night, and with the voucher we purchased from Groupon ($89 for degustation course for two people), it was even better.
I butchered the pictures while trying to make them brighter, as I only relied on my iphone to take them -_-. The place is dark and I couldn't get proper photos.
But hey, the food is more important.

The seared pork belly was very delicious and tender, but I definitely prefer the scotch fillet. They cooked it to perfection - raw in the middle and sweet on their own.
The rest of the dish are good too - Zucchini kushiyaki, Sashimi, Scallops, and Dessert of Ice Cream and Cream Brulee.
The Cream Brulee had a very fragrant vanilla smell and taste.
Service was attentive and the food kept coming at constant - but not rushed - pace.
For $89? Well worth the money. I plan to come back to eat a-la-carte and try their other menu on offer.
