“Go there for Korean Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Their Korean food is good but not excellent. Their best is Kalbi and Japchae. I go there because I love korean food and they are the only korean place in my neck of the woods. I know their name is Toro, which is Japanese for fatty tuna belly, but don't go there for sushi. If you want great sushi, drive to Harrison and go to Hajime.

“To_o?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The burned out lamp for Toro's 3rd letter was not a good sign. This once popular and highly rated restaurant is falling out of favor. Located in the former space of the Cherry Blossom Restaurant, Toro is in desperate need of a good cleanup, face lift and kitchen overhaul. The carpets were dirty, our sodas came in the can, instead of poured for us into glasses, and the once pristine private dining rooms are now stripped of their former elegance. The sizzling rice, vegetables and chicken dish was bland, burned and not worth the time to order it. We ate some then paid and left quickly. We will not be returning anytime soon.

“Wide selection of delicious Asian foods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Stopped here travelling through New York via rte 84, looking fr a quick lunch. Toro has a wide selection of Asian foods...the sushi was very good and if you sit at te sushi bar you can watch the chef. The selection of (mostly) Korean and Japanese foods was very good. The bento bx was delicious, as was the seafood rice soup. Both meals were very generous portions. Would definitely try it again!

“belly ache!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

the soup tasted nice, but barely had any tofu or seaweed in. The fish salad tasted good especially they used sliced pear to lift up the freshness. The night after dinner, 1 hour later, I started a horrible belly ache, cannot blame anything else but the fish salad...

“Very Good, But......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Overall we like Toro very much. We have been here with a large family group, and everyone was pleased with what they ordered. We also come here more often, just the two of us, especially for the pork gopdol. It is excellent. The atmosphere can best be described as awkward, in that we are often the only customers in the place. (Granted we are usually there on the early side). Waiting for a table is never an issue. Service is okay -- not overly friendly. The water is horrible, and being a non-drinker, I have opted for the Coke which is served in the can! Toro is closed on Sunday.
