“One if the best Japanese restaurants in town...not cheap though!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This place has both Japanese and Korean chefs, and I have to admit, I've never had anything from the Korean menu, so can't really comment there.

The Japanese food is of a very good quality, some of the best in Torino. The service is exceptional and most of the staff are Japanese. The place is decorated in Japanese style and the atmosphere is very nice. Ideal for a romantic dinner on a special occasion.

The chicken teriyaki dish is great, so is the tempura and the sushi is of a very high standard - hard to find in Torino.

But be prepared to spend around 30-35 euros per person at least.

Worth a visit!

“Great Japanese Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

I'm not experienced in the art of dining Japanese, but this was a really enjoyable lunch with friends. One of the girls had been before, and so we decided to give Tobiko a try. Two of the girls had never eaten Japanese before, but thoroughly enjoyed their first time! Great lunchtime menu on offer, with a choice of either individual dishes, or the good selection of degustation options (including wine or water and coffee). We each opted for a different degustation and we weren't disappointed. The staff are very friendly and the interior is tastefully decorated. It's definately a hidden gem of Torino, and would highly recommend a visit! We'll be back again for a girly lunch! :)

“Taste of Japan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

Tobiko is a nice japanese restaurant in Turin downtown.
Not so easy to be found in a quite chaotic and hidden in a small street in Turin but once you are inside you forget to be in Turin and it seems to you to be in Japan.
Service is really good as well the food - try the wide variety of Sushi and Sashimi or one of the regional dishes. Tempura is at really high level.
