It was a great night, fantastic and fresh food. Price is little bit expensive, but it is okay to be in the Japanese restaurant.

This place doesn't know how to prepare good sushi. I am amazed of the overall rating given to this place on trip advisor; it defiantly doesn't deserve more than two stars. The rolls are very simple, and the majority is rice with very little fish involved. Also some of the ingredients are not of good quality. However to be fair... More

We had dinner here one evening while we stayed at the Al Falaj hotel. Wonderful Sushi, Teryaki and more... The service was excellent and the food was awesome. The wasabi was really fantastic ! A must try. We loved it.

Great ambience, good service and great cuisine. I like get a kick out of my wasabi - and it did just that. The teriyaki was good and the sushi boats are a good choice. Worth the money!

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
