Taro reviews

By Andrew M.

Great value for money, Taro serves quick and fresh. The restaurant doesn't deliver but take away is available and quick. Great before going to the cinema

By M D.

As far as London Japanese and sushi restaurants go Taro is great - have been going there for several years and swear by it.

Really good, authentic, top quality sushi - very fresh and whilst not all the time, they have great toro and o-toro available. Hamachi and uni available most times too.

Cooked Japanese dishes are great also.Prices are very reasonable.Décor is not extravagant but clean, tidy and neat.

By S.

This popular chain of Japanese restaurants consistently delivers outstanding value for money.

The Venue
Taro would be an ideal pit-stop before taking in a movie at the nearby O2 centre. Small and stylish, the simple interior matches the cuisine perfectly. Taro has all the accoutrements that are associated with Japanese cuisine right down to the staff. Japanese-style artwork and lanterns bring an additional warm feel to this cozy place.

The Atmosphere
The crowd is a mix of Japanese clientele (always a good sign) and North West London locals, which ensures that there’s always a steady flow of people to create a pleasant eating environment.

The Food
Starters include very addictive edamame, boiled green soy beans that simply pop out of the shell, and chicken and vegetable gyoza, or dumplings. Japanese food wouldn’t be Japanese food without sushi, which features heavily in the mains. Dishes include a platter of fresh raw tuna, salmon and sea bass sashimi, salmon or tuna, avocado and mayonnaise wraps and an array of noodle dishes featuring beef teriyaki.

The set meals offer good value for money at between approximately £15.00 and £18.00 for a meal which includes miso, deep fried tofu, pickles, chicken satay and your choice of main course. For an extra pound, there is a choice of either chestnut or green tea ice cream. Fast service guarantees you are not kept waiting too long.

The Drink
Wash down these delicate cuts of fish with some iced green tea or some of the usual Japanese beers to choose from.

The Last Word
Taro serves up an authentic taste of Japan at affordable prices. It’s a proven winner with Japanese and non-Japanese diners alike.
