One of the very few licensed japanese restaurants in Muscat, Tokyo Taro is for sushi, sashimi and teppanyaki lovers. Dont bother reading the menu there, the dishes to order come from knowing what they serve. Usuzukuri (thinly sliced fish with a special sauce mixed together), sashimi, chicken teriyaki, beef or chicken teppanyaki are all great dishes aswell as the spicy... More

Location is quite far from most of Muscat area which is the only downside. The saki was good along to the suchi. Ambience definitely gives you a feeling of being in Asia/Japan. Would go there again if I felt like driving that far.

Not sure how I would rate this place under usual circumstances but after 3 weeks of solid Persian/Mid-Eastern food this is like the best Japanese lunchbox ever (sashimi could be a sliced a bit thinner but not complaining - it was fresh and just what I needed - missing usual ginger but nick picking here).

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!
