We visited this place by a friend's recommendation. It's a nice restaurant with a casual environment. The menu was a bit limited (no large sushi plates), but we were given great menu recommendations and the service was excellent. The food was great quality and we had a great time.

Taro was recommended to us by a friend who has been and always goes whenever she's in London. Its good food and good value for money. Love the Katsudon, sushi and maki rolls. Mr. Taro is very helpful and friendly. As i said...our go-to place for quick, easy Asian food. Will always be back! :)

There is nothing glossy in this Japanese restaurant - but the food itself, which is so delicious, fresh and artistically served. Some wooden tables, simple (but cosy) chairs, and you can see the chefs working in the ultra clean kitchen. The prices are medium-low - best value/money.

Taro is a tried and tested favourite of mine in Soho, I've been going for almost ten years. its fresh clean authentic Japanese food at a very reasonable price. You don't need to book in advance but it does get crazy busy during lunch and dinner time. The Benito boxes are fabulous, I love the chicken terakki box and sushi... More

We went there twice this week, the first time for just sushi which was fine had a few pieces £35 - seemed a lot since we didn't even have a beer. Went back end of the week as food looked nice, but chicken katsu bland and so was salmon teryaki. VERY average, and disappointing. Asked for a second beer never... More

Had a nice simple and well priced dinner at the Soho branch. Had a bento box which was generous with their portion size. They were accommodating when I had a specific request to not put wasabi in the sushi when it was stated that modifications couldn't be made. Would visit again.

Excellent sushi and sashimi. Bustling when we were there for lunch on an early September weekday, but not noisy. Efficient service. £110 for four for piles of food plus beer seemed reasonable.
