You may think its a bit of a trek to go to Ruwi with the traffic, but Tokyo Taro is so worth the trip every time. We have never been disappointed with either the Tepenaki or regular menu. The service is good, the sake is great and we will continue to battle traffic to go.

Tokio Taro is the best restaurant for sushi in Muscat. They have excellent food and service. It is necessary to make reservation 1-2 days before because it gets booked really fast. Service is really good and the atmosphere very different from normal restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Tokyo taro has been open for ages... It's probably the only authentic Japanese restaurant in Muscat. The food quality varies between acceptable and good. Once in a while you can get lucky and be treated to some very fresh nigiri and sashimi! Try their chicken Kara age (deep fried chicken), spicy tuna cut rolls, spicy prawn tempura cut rolls, hamour...

We used to be repeat clients at the restaurant, however I decided to go for my birthday dinner with my friends...... was a nightmare, our reservation was not registered and even if the restaurant was empty we struggle in to get the table set for 10. We asked for teppanyakki but in order to avoid the smell and to continuing... More

There's a wide range of Japanese food on the menu. I strongly recommend the 'lunch box' options - or any of the full meal options. Good value. Excellent taste!

I ate here three times while in Oman. very pleasant, efficient staff. The sushi was excellent, fresh and well prepared. Ample portions. I would have given them 5 stars if only they would have some Japanese background music for a little ambiance.

The food is absolutely delicious. You would be hard pressed to find any other Japanese restaurant that offer such freshness. I have lived all over Europe and experienced many Japanese restaurants, but this is by far the best. I recently took a group of my Japanese business partners and they were highly impressed. Though the place is small and in... More

This was supposedly the best sushi place in town. While the clientele and the atmosphere seemed to suggest the same, the food unfortunately didn't impress. While I am not a Japanese food expert,my colleagues who are, seemed to feel the same way. The food is overpriced and not so tasty. May be I am being harsh but for the price,... More

Really the only Japanese food in town! great sushi! great service! It's a place I go regularly and the only negativite thing I can say about it is that it's in Ruwi, I wish it would move to the Wave or some place in town.

This restaurant is by far the most authentic Japanese you will get in whole of Oman. I am a Japanese so take my word for it. Especially the fish dishes on the menu are highly recommendable because they are bought directly from the fishing boats that come back to Mutra port, caught on the very morning. It will be hard...
