One of the very few licensed japanese restaurants in Muscat, Tokyo Taro is for sushi, sashimi and teppanyaki lovers. Dont bother reading the menu there, the dishes to order come from knowing what they serve. Usuzukuri (thinly sliced fish with a special sauce mixed together), sashimi, chicken teriyaki, beef or chicken teppanyaki are all great dishes aswell as the spicy salmon roll.

Location is quite far from most of Muscat area which is the only downside. The saki was good along to the suchi. Ambience definitely gives you a feeling of being in Asia/Japan. Would go there again if I felt like driving that far.

Limited menu for the night as hardly any fish was available....wish we had been told this when booking the table....food was bland, tasteless, unseasoned and well below acceptable standards...can't be described as authentic...had better Sushi at mainstream chain restaurants....poor standard of teppanyaki....wasn't even made on an iron griddle but in a frying pan....service terrible.....waiters couldn't communicate properly and we got the bill mid way through eating our main course...front of house lady was just plain rude....asked why we weren't told that the fish was limited on booking the table..she responded "you're not regulars"....saw many other customers complain too...save your money and effort travelling through Ruwi to get to this substandard restaurant....

Not sure how I would rate this place under usual circumstances but after 3 weeks of solid Persian/Mid-Eastern food this is like the best Japanese lunchbox ever (sashimi could be a sliced a bit thinner but not complaining - it was fresh and just what I needed - missing usual ginger but nick picking here).

You may think its a bit of a trek to go to Ruwi with the traffic, but Tokyo Taro is so worth the trip every time. We have never been disappointed with either the Tepenaki or regular menu. The service is good, the sake is great and we will continue to battle traffic to go.
