There has been a lot of buzz around this new restaurant opening so I was eager to check it out once it opened. Toko is a famous restaurant and a celeb favourite in Sydney & recently opened in Dubai… I recently went to Toko for early dinner with a friend on a Thursday night and let me just tell you… this IS the new hip restaurant in Dubai.
Restaurant name and location: Toko at Vida Hotel, Dubai.
Atmosphere: Buzzing – full with a load of chic men and women. and pretty & handsome staff.
What they say: From Sydney Australia, Toko has Established itself as the Ultimate Japanese Dining Experience by Serving a Premium Fusion Menu in an Inspired Setting.
What to order:
-Salmon Tartare (Fresh!)
-Wagyu beef gyoza (So good, juicy, melts in your mouth.)
-Baby chicken namban, sweet-sour glaze (Flavorful)
-Hazelnut and chocolate foundant (With salted caramel on the inside, heavenly.)
Service: Great service – a lot of them have been brought from Australia. The staff know what they’re talking about, which is usually what they lack when a new restaurant opens.

-Chic space and super spacious.
-The staff are pretty trained for such a new restaurant.
-Hip and cool crowd.
