A vintage Jap Resto in Riyadh

When you are in Saudi Arabia, do not expect the best but be thankful "there is a good one". and Tokyo Restaurant speaks for itself. This Jap Resto has been here for many many years...even before the Gulf War. So what does this mean?

I could not believe that there is still a traditional Japanese Resto in Riyadh. My friend told me that this restaurant was in Riyadh since 1985. When I entered the place, we were greeted by enthusiastic waiters--the interior looks like we are in one of the restaurants in the street of Tokyo or Kyoto, the ambiance is authentic Japanese. We...

They have a very good sushi and maki. Also they have a tasty teppanyaki Must try. It is better to make a reservation.

It's the destination for all our celebrations, when we feel that we deserve a tasty meal. The decoration is standard, the service is above standard.

I had wanted sushi since I arrived in Saudi. We decided to try Tokyo and we were VERY happy with our choice. The sushi is delicious especially the handroll with the teriyake sauce... oh my goodness, delicious! I spend an average of 300 SAR every time I am there (a platter plus a couple handrolls plus drinks) and it is... More

Overall food quality and the sushi are good at Tokyo Restaurant but the atmosphere is mediocre: The 'open' area consists of a little plain room with 3 small tables. Service is friendly, patient and polite, nothing to complain about, however thank God for the electronic bells on the tables or you would never have a waiter pass by. Sadly there... More

The food is good here. The service is pleasant, attentive and informative. It's a good place for vegetarians. They have cucumber sushi as well as avocado sushi. The tasty veggie teppanyaki is served in hearty portions. The fruit drinks are refreshing. The tables are in rooms with doors, so women can take off their abayas.
