Owners Chip and Joe Sweet encourage you to select from their wide range of share-able, Asian-inspired recipes. The food doesn't contain cannabis, but they are named with weed slang and terminology. The lighting and design of the restaurant is extremely relaxing and creates a laid-back vibe.

Their first location opened up at 123 Mohawk Street in Herkimer, in between Yetty's Pizza and VFW Post 4915. TokaBocca has seen so much success, they've decided to expand even farther into Upstate, New York.
