Tokyo Taro Oman

a great meal as always in Muscat

Tokyo Taro Oman is the original, and still the best, Japanese restaurant in Oman. Located on the Al Falaj Hotel’s 8th floor its a really easy to get to location. I had hoped to get their ‘traditional’ table, but no such luck so we had a standard table and a great meal.

We had ‘Yakiniku’ which is sliced beef with rice and salad and Tokyo Taro Special Tippan Yaki, a mix of prawn, chicken and fish. The food was excellent with tender beef and tasty chicken. I persevered with the chopsticks and decided they would be a great help in a diet.

Pudding was ‘fried ice cream’, more like ice cream in custard (creme anglaise), but still nice as ice cream always is. As usual, the Tokyo Taro Oman service was good and quick and helped make the evening excellent.
