After trying all the restaurants in Riyadh that offer Japanese foods, I finally visited Tokyo Restaurant at Oruba Street. It was last Thursday-I could hardly park my car, I walked at least 2 blocks away. When we entered the restaurant it is full, and we waited around 20 minutes to be seated, my first impression it is really very busy... More

I'm a regular customer of Tokyo Resturent for the last 10 years. It's by far the best sushi Resturent in Riyadh. The sushi is always fresh and atmosphere is friendly.

Interior, ambiance and excellent crew. Enjoy the different set up of the food preparation and the chef will cook in front of you.

Food is good, fresh and really Japanese, everythinis cooked by a large team of cooks in front of you, kitchen has glass windows and is there in front of you. I have tried a number of different plates here... More

Tokyo looks modest from the outside. Efforts to make the decor recall the feel of a Japanese rock garden were a bit disorienting: though attractive, the stones are set under glass beneath floor level, which gave me something of a start. Our group was a small horde of expats with a sprinkling of Saudis in Western dress, and we occupied... More

This place has been around for years and never disappoints. The interior had become a bit rundown a couple of year ago, but now the new interior and lighting adds the right touch. Great food, served fast, and enough variety to appeal to everyone. What more can be said? :) The meals are portioned well, and the price is not... More

Overall, this was a good meal. It didn't blow me away, but I really have nothing to criticize. Just a good solid Japanese place that's good for a midweek meal.

So luckily we found it at Al uruba st. riyadh! Our first order of meal was a success! I love their Bento! We enjoyed their free soup and salad too which... More

I love Japanese food and after reading about how good the Tokyo restaurant is I decided to try it out for dinner. Some of my points: - the waiter new the menu - miso soup and ginger seemed to come from the shop across the street - the salad was fresh and good - sushi was average, freshness of fish... More

One of friends loves and told me there is a Fantastic Sushi Rest. in Riyadh. At the beginning I doubt it, but after eating at Tokyo, I changed my mind. The Master chief is Japanese old man and at the same he is the owner. I tried SUSHI all over the world, but this one is the BEST.
