“First Japanese Restaurant”
Review of Tokyo Taro

Description: 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.

We ordered a lot of sushi and bentos and all of them were so good! It was a bit pricey but I guess it was worth it! The waiters were also very patient in helping you select your order. And the place is small and quiet and despite being full, it was still orderly. Perfect place for our little celebration.

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 (pork) which were sublime.

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.
The menu on the night we visited was missing some items as the fish available on the market was not up to the chef's quality standards.
We all had a Bento Box meal and it was good. The Tuna was excellent.
The meal was not cheap nor exorbitant.
I would return without thought although I would possibly try to call ahead and find out what variety of fish was available.

This was my first visit to Tokyo Taro in muscat, Oman.
Recommended by my sister as one of the oldest authentic restaurants in Oman that I must visit.
It is located in the oldest hotel in the area - the look and feel in the restaurant is very nice and vintage you can tell it's old but very well maintained. Plus point for keeping the original look.
We had a private room as we were a party of 5.
Unfortunately for us the air condition wasn't working - not the restaurants fault it was across the hotel, but in July really!!!
We got to ordering - the restaurant didn't have fish !!! It was a weekend and no fish common!!!
Anyway we ordered a customized sushi boat - amazing I must say regardless of no air condition and no main fish dishes.
We also ordered the beef teriyaki - amazing as well.
The edamame however they were out of spicy edamame.
3 stars because whatever food we ordered was good.
I would recommend the restaurant though - just enquire about the fish prior to reserving a table.
