What happened to this place???

This was always my go-to for sushi on the NW side of town. The fish was fresh and the entrees are delicious. The service has always been terrible: One occasion, the waiter forgot my request for soy paper on my sushi roll and it came with seaweed. When I requested the fix, he asked if I could... read more

We went for lunch with a sushi craving. The sashimii was not great, I had a couple of tough pieces that were hard to chew. I ordered a Lunch combo 3. The sushi was ok. The salad came and was absolutely swimming in dressing. I didn't even attempt to eat it. They offered another one but my lunch came out... More

I love going to Toro. My DH can have his sashimi, our friend can have her Dragon rolls and I can have a shrimp tempura bento box that I end of sharing with everyone else! So much wonderful food! We have never had a bad experience here. The service is good and the food is divine. One day we'll have... More

It's alarming to me how the management continuously mistreats regular customers.... challenging them... nickel and dining them.... charging for tap water on a $75 bill--really???? Do you really want to treat a regular customer that way that's spent many thousands of dollars at your establishment. Simply ridiculous!!!

My family and I went here for my father's birthday dinner. The service was wonderful - hostess, wait staff and managers were very friendly and attentive. Sushi is definitely better than RA Sushi and I would say comparable to Kubo's or Azumas. If you don't want to travel too far in town of Houston for Japanese food, this place is... More

Went into Toro's expecting a typical Sushi/Japanese lunch, but the food and atmosphere were both better than expected. It was nice to have a separate room for those wanting Sushi and not to be forced to compete with the shows. I would definitely go back.

Toro is a neighborhood sushi restaurant. What it lacks in service, it makes up for with a well menued happy hour that runs later than most. Not the best in town, but it is consistent.

My husband loves the tempura ( variety of veggies). I love the rolls. The bartender "Cruz" was great. I love sitting at the bar and watching them make the rolls.
