I was sitting in the rare end of the sushi bar enjoying watching the chefs cooking inside the kitchen when I noticed an Indian man in a suit drinking straight through the bottle of what i believe is apple juice. I was even more disappointed when the bartender used the same bottle to prepare some drinks. I asked my waiter... More

We come here often to Tokyo as this the best, most affordable Japanese resto in Riyadh. Interior is good, they made an effort to make it look like an authentic Japanese resto. Staff are polite but they are very busy. This has been our favorite Japanese resto since the food are really good and not that expensive. However, it somehow... More

Great dinner with a friend, great atmosphere, professional team. Amazing feeling that you are in Tokyo near the fish market if you have been there, quite exceptional. Fish and rest is so fresh, delicately cut by a large well organized staff, headed by the chefs, very impressive, I truly recommend.

Had been wanting to try this restaurant for a while since a lot of my friends have been recommending it and so took the chance a month back. there was a long line (or should I say a crowd) of people already waiting to enter when we arrived and we had to park a block away. Luckily we got a... More

If I have a craving for sushi or sashimi, Tokyo is always the first Japanese resto in Riyadh that comes to mind. Place and ambiance is very good, though we always like to eat in the singles open section, which is small yet comfortable. I liked the warm interiors and lighting. Food is reasonably priced and choices ares quite vast.... More

Tokyo is an average Japanese restaurant that serves sushi and other japanese dishes. The restaurant design is average (private rooms are everything but) and the service is OK at best. The sushi is definitely not the freshest you have tried. If you are in Riyadh and craving Japanese then you might want to try it else wait till you get... More

Very nice friendly staff, good sushi, but if I have a comment, as the Japanese food depend totally in the quality of ingredient, the beef used for the freshly cocked teppenyaki is not the best !

This Riyadh spit serves some of the very best sashimi and sushi I've enjoyed! Great team and attentive service I would highly recommend. Particular favourites are the Spanish maceral and thick tuna sashimi - and the chicken teriyaki is to die for :)

Prior to my arrival my husband had visited this place quite a few times as it's near where we live. The food was great as was the service but do agree with another persons comment that it's not a place to linger with a coffee as they are busy. Saying that you would not wish to at least not in...
