Amazing as Always

This is the third time I have eaten at Toko and impressed yet again. Sushi was very fresh and top notch. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.

I've been here twice in the past few weeks (and my wallet feels lighter for the experience). I was dragged here by an old mate and we had a sensational dinner, and a great time. We chose from the A la carte menu and had a wonderful selection of meats and other delicacies. Fast forward two weeks and I took... More

Ok, so I have 100 character minimum, but all I can say is that it is goddamn delicious! Would go back every week if I could afford it!

Staff were a bit slow to start and sat us on a noisy weird long share table. We asked if we could move to a quiet section and they happily let us. So after we moved it was great and the food was just perfect. Best japanese I have ever had.

Amazing food and fit out. Massive menu- cooked right in front of you. Sat in front of the sashimi station. Food was fresh and cleanly presented. The grill opposite was turning out some spectacular looking food as well. Can't wait to return.

What a disappointment. I'm fact was horrified after a $260 bill for a less than ordinary meal. Service was awful. Food late and cold. Husband got his starter and main before I got my starter. Seriously go to japanese restaurants in neutral bay. For a third of the price . Horrible experience
