When I lived in London I started a hunt for the best sushi restaurant in town (for both quality and price) and one day I found this incredible place. I would stop by the restaurant everytime I could, for lunch and dinner. I would bring all my friends to demonstrate them how sushi is done right. Now I don't live... More

I guess Taro doesn't claim to be what it isn't. It's not a Japanese restaurant, it's a 'sushi noodle bar' and as such it does the job. Fairly extensive menu, fresh food prepared in full view as you'd expect and a limited wine list. Sushi portions rather small but not a big deal. Perhaps more disappointing at the end of... More

The amount of food was really good. The sushi was excellent and the price was really good according to the quality. For sure I will go next time.

Taro I am amazed what passes for authentic Japanese food in London. I usually go to Mitsukoshi restaurant, but was dismayed to find that they no longer open on Sundays. That lead me to try Taro, with its high ratings on Tripadvisor and stickers declaring authentic Japanese food on its windows. So I thought I'd give it a try. After... More

I came here for a quick bite for lunch. I ordered the sushi set and pretty much watched the sushi chef make it in front of me. The quality isn't bad and the atmosphere was pleasant. Not bad and I would come again.

We celebrated our anniversary at Taro last night, the food was delicious and the service was incredibly friendly. We regularly eat here, and having tried a ton of Japanese eateries in London, this is by far our favourite. Highly recommended.

The service is always efficient and the mark of any good london restaurant is returning customers and i see... More

We visit London a couple times a year and we always eat at Taro on Brewer street. The food is very reasonably priced and the ingredients are fresh and well prepared. We have never had a bad meal here. Reading some of the other reviews, I see that people have complained at the service. Look folks, this is not a... More
