Toko-Sydney is turning 10 soon and still making noises in the Dining Scene.
“When Toko opened almost a decade ago, there was hardly any restaurants in this area. Surry Hills was just a normal outlaying suburb close to the city, now the team travels all over Asia learning, exploring and mastering better distinctive techniques in creative cooking” restaurant manager Benito puts it. It is a testament to why loyal diners keep coming back and new clients like myself wanting a taste of it. It is no hype.
Fast forward to the present, looking through my menu I have decided to embark on the taster menu.
To simply put it, I love it. From the freshness of their oysters to their divine salmon and top it off, dessert was absolutely delightful. I kept wanting more.
In many ways Toko Sydney plays a huge part in pioneering Japanese dining cuisine in Sydney through their warm funky interiors and creative menus. Their dedication and commitment to producing a menu that is always evolving fits in nicely with an international city like Sydney. I guess thats why they are so popular.
