Authentic Japanese food at a price of course. Their range of sushi and sashimi are very good. may not suit everyone as the tastes are very Jap and thus an acquired taste. The meats are quite nice and the menu has enough variety for most palettes. the price may be commensurate with the fact that... read more

For those who's fond of Japanese food like our family, Tokyo Taro restaurant is a must-visit when you're in Muscat. They have practically everything - sushi, sashimi, ramen, teppanyaki, etc. The restaurant itself is Japan-themed, although the wait staff are mainly Filipinos. The food, especially their sushi and tempura are really good and fresh; the price, however, is a little... More

Tokyo Taro is a great place in Muscat for good japanese food coupled with friendly service and nice ambience. Being vegetarian, we always visit for the teppanyaki which we enjoy thoroughly. The fresh garlic chips (as avoidable as it sounds) were delicious as usual. The avocado and cucumber maki rolls were nice and fresh. I ordered a portion of yasai... More

One soup too many and and egg disth that was certainly different _ set custard hot with chicken base. But the sushi was fresh and overall its worth a visit if you want something away from the very standard international food elsewhere in the hotel.

Was there about a week ago. Really liked their sushi and teppenyaki. My friend ordered a katsu kare. And a Bento box Sushi was fresh. The food was on par with many the Japanese estaurants I have eaten at. Staff were very helpful.

We really loved the food here, although I chose a Bento box and wished I'd chosen tepinyaki, which my husband chose. We sat in front of the chef as he cooked magnificently. Great tasting, good quality food.

Excellent Food and Service but a little bit expensive, however they serve Japanese beer and saki!! We were there for lunch and unfortunately the teppanyaki tables were not open, only in the evening. Never the less one to recommend

Was invited here by friends. I have known of the restaurant for over ten years but only just visited, and I was not disappointed. From the warm greeting at the door to the attentive and courteous service at the table. We had a private dining room and as it happened it was the best for our group of eight as... More

This is not a make believe japanese restarurant, it is real one restaurant and you can see that for the clientele often including many Japanese. The atmosphere and service are irreprehensible (includes a private futon room) and for sushi lovers like me it is my breather in a land of biryani and curry. Menus (also written in Japanese without funny... More
