Hard to believe that we will find such a good Japanese restaurant hidden in Ruwi's Falaj Hotel. Plenty of choices, portions for every kind of appetite, fresh products, good advices from the staff. What else could we be asking for? Coming back some day!

Plenty words are not needed to review this restaurant. It is by far the best japanese restaurant in Muscat and one of the best I have been in several cities. Proper sashimi and sushi, a menu written both in Japanese and english, a wide variety of dishes to choose from, all sounding delicious. And more important... Japanese customers! All said.... More

it was my first time at a japanese restaurant. the food was tasty and filling. the portions were perfect and the service was sincere and always accompanied with a smile. We had booked the private room and it was really comfortable. the only negative was that the aircondition wasn't cooling as well as it should be. overall, great experience. :)

Very good sushi and sashimi. Also offers the possibility to enjoy grilled food tepanyaki style. Japanese and other beers are also available. Approximate price 15 - 20 rials Omani with beer. Japanese decoration. A good option in town.

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.
