This is the closest you can get to Japanese food in Muscat. Ambiance isn't wow, but if your there to eat then I guess you'll have to settle with what it has to offer . Their salmon sashimi is perfecto . Maki rolls are great too. Prices are above average but I would say its normal for Japanese.

This restaurant is located inside Al Falaj Hotel with nice Japanese set-up and relaxing ambiance. They serve delicious sushi and maki's presented very well. The price is quite expensive but its worth to try. After your meal, you may want to go to the hotel rooftop to take a glimpse of the city.

The food at Tokyo Taro is delicious. I wouldn't have known about this little gem if a friend didn't suggest dinner there. It isn't the cheapest but it is really good Japanese food. You can also have a glass of wine or beer. We made a bit of mistake ordering the fried ice-cream as we thought it would be deep-fried... More

If you are looking for quality Sushi then there is no other alternative in Oman. Tokyo Taro has been a consistantly pleasant experience with great food, staff and a warm ambience. If you respect sushi, then I think you will appreciate the respect that Tokyo Taro has for sushi - clean, fresh and back to basics. Have I eaten better... More

After eating arabic food for days, we craved for japanese. Luckily, there's Tokyo Taro at our hotel. Place was almost fully reserved when we arrived for dinner. We got seats at the teppanyaki bar but we ordered their ume and take bento. We also ordered Agedashi tofu which was very tasty. Their ramen is also very good. Bento boxes have... More

A nice interior and friendly staff. The menu had a lot of choices. If you're not familiar with Japanese food, then parts of the menu are a little confusing. Pictures next to the choices would help, particularly with the sushi. The food appeared to be fresh and authentic. If you're into Japanese food then this restaurant could well be worth... More

The best Japanese Restaurant in whole of Oman. From the entrance, the setup, staff uniform and of cause tepanyaki preparation bar is so authentic. I always go for the Sashimi platter and it's the freshest I've tried here in Oman. I totally recommend it to my friends. Even my Japanese friends have tried it and agree that it's so authentic.

The place is nicely decorated with Japanese style, and not a very big place. We had reservations. Menu was pretty comprehensive including pork tonkatsu, teppanyaki and ramen. Service was good with smiles and my ocha was refilled regularly. We had the bentos which came with sashimi, tempura, teriyaki beef and grilled salmon. Fair quality and portions for the price. The...

Tokyo Taro is the most Japanese menu you'll find in Oman. Also, the Chef is a purist, he will only sell you fresh fish, non of that frozen imported nonsense. True, you may very often find that they are missing this or that type of fish, but one thing is for sure, you'll never complain about the quality of the... More
