Miss the old Tojo's

Tojo's has been around for quite a while now -- I've been twice before, the last time being about 9 years ago. Since that time, they have moved locations and are now a much larger and 'polished' restaurant than before. We had the 6 course omakase and while the food was undeniably excellent, it... read more

I was very excited to go to Tojos after seeing it featured on many TV shows and it totally exceeded my expectations. All the wait staff were very polite and eager to make your experience the best possible. The sushi was the best I've ever had with fresh ingredients caught that day! You could even see Tojo in the kitchen... More

So I liked Tojos a lot - and there were glimmers of excellence. Their cooked fish speciality, a couple of the sashimi dishes. But most of the food was good and he service OK mould definitely return, but not an absolute favourite.

I came here on my birthday and met Tojo himself. What a wonderful and nice man full of knowledge about the culinary world. I ordered the Wagyu Omakase specially made by Tojo on that day and the meat was ever so tender and bursting with flavor. The vegetables and fish were also very fresh. The waiters were very nice and... More

The place does not look so great but had great reviews so we decided to try. Did not go for the omakase as we were not too hungry, and ordered several sushi rolls form the menu, and prawns tempura. All of the sushi rolls were great , super fresh, tender and flavorful. Tempura was good . After the first batch,... More

We had dinner for four at Tojo's, with two of our party ordering the 6 course set menu (omakase), one for 5 course set menu, and one for two rolls. The 5 and 6 course menus differ in addition of tempura course, addition of octopus to sashimi dish of smoked salmon, different cooked fish courses, different sushi rolls, and different... More

Always great food. We had the tasting menu. Quite a few courses. Very nice as always. We had our server do a sake pairing. We made a reso, not sure we needed one as we went at 5:30.

From the moment you enter the doors of Tojo's, you will feel warm and welcome and enjoy the beauty of one of the finest Japanese experiences you can imagine. The pride of presentation and the melt in your mouth creations that the chefs prepare are the Best of the Best! Enjoy ~

Of all the restaurants in my journeys, outside of Gordon Ramsey at Claridges (which is no longer Gordon Ramsey at Claridges), there has never been a more hyped restaurant than Tojo’s. They obviously wallow in the accolades—you can barely see through the glass door with all the stickers on it from various review sites like Zagat, Trip Advisor, or Yelp.... More

I was initially disappointed on arrival as the atmosphere was very quiet to start with and informal, everyone was in jeans and shorts, not what I was expecting. However my disappointment soon disappeared with the arrival of the food which was exceptional. We chose the set menu, but chose one 5 course and one 6 course to get a good... More
