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

It's a very old japanese restaurant here in oman. My wife likes their food very much, Everyone can meet the owner or manager between 10-11:30am in muttrah fish market daily. However I always wonder how this japanese guy uses the dead fish to make delicious sushi and Sashimi, Truly authentic japanese restaurant, recommend to everyone
