This used to be a very good Japanese restaurant. Since 2016 the owner and chef retired back to Japan. It has since been takenover by the Sri Lankan owners of the hotel. Chefs are Indian and I'm told a that guy is in the back...More

Visited second time in last six months. As per advice of Chef’s suggestion, we sat at the preparation counter, both times. Had Sake (rice wine) hot and kept sipping. It’s an acquired taste to like it. Had snow peas, salad with tuna for starters. Then...More

Great restaurant, the food was superb as was the service. They just need to fix the air conditioning! The waiter was very attentive. To be honest the food has some great items, the stand out pieces are the crispy chicken skin and the Gyoza dumplings...More

I visited Tokyo Taro with friends for dinner, early on a midweek night. The restaurant's ambiance is typically Japanese, well maintained and clean but as the Al Falaj hotel which it is located in, it looks a bit dated. Service was prompt, polite and efficient....More

Our Japanese restaurant in Muscat presents an authentically memorable dining experience with options for private dining. The right place in the city for authentic Japanese food with a “Tepanyaki” counter and a private traditional Japanese-style dining area. Located on the 8th floor with a spectacular view of the city. Taking on the traditional Japanese design, an all-embracing menu tempts you to venture new tastes beyond the renowned Japanese specialties such as sushi, sashimi, tepanyaki and tempura.
