Toko Sushi on Oxford street in Paddington is a stylish modern Japanese restaurant that serves an a-la-carte menu and innovative sushi rolls such as the roast duck and coriander roll. The atmosphere is warm and vibrant, with the focus of the room on the sushi bar, where chefs prepare cuisine while patrons watch on and enjoy a relaxed meal. The restaurant is open between 12pm and 3:30pm for lunch and from 5:30pm for dinner on weekdays, as well as all day Saturday and Sunday. We dont accept boookings.
Toko Sushi has recently had a few changes, still an awesome deal however no longer BYO available. They've brought in $5.50 house wine & beer with Mad Mondays, Wacky Wednesdays and Frenzied Fridays - all plates are $3.50.
Yum. If you like your local sushi train, but after a slightly nicer setting, this is the place to go. It only seats 20 in its intimate area but also provides quick take away even on the busy nights...It is still the usual rock up and they will try squeeze you in asap, but on Mondays prepare to line up with their $3 plate special, it is definitely worthwhile but coming with more than about 2 people makes it harder to get a spot.. Tasty food, BYO as well as drink service there, a great way to enjoy your sushi with friendly staff, definitely worth a look!
If you are after a much nicer alternative to a normal sushi train, then Tokos Oxford St Restaurant is the answer. It is quite small, only seating about 20 people around a single train, but the seductive atmosphere and the tasty food are what will really impress you. From the train, the choice is yours and they also have a menu for special requests. If you are after a particular dish that you cant see, ask one of the staff and they will bring it out to you. Nicole Ritchie ate here on a recent trip to Sydney and came out with a smile on her face. On Mondays they do $3 plate night which is very popular among the Paddington locals. You can expect the line to be flowing out the door and on to Oxford Street however it is quite a short wait and a very small price to pay for good quality sushi. The place is BYO, or you can get drinks when you are there. The staff are always friendly and will do their best to get you seated as soon as possible. Toko is a great place for a quick, easy and healthy option.
If you dont mind waiting in line Monday night Toko is a must. Every delectable plate is $3 and corkage is dirt cheap. Everything from the softshell crab sushi rolls to the steamed pork dumplings is mouth watering. I dont even eat raw fish and I love Toko on Oxford. They have something for everyone. Their Katsu chicken is delicious as are their tuna salads.
I suggest you give Toko a go. It will quickly become your Monday night regular. Whether it be with your girlfriends for a weekend debrief or with that special someone. The ambience is fabulous, as is their service. To avoid waiting in line for too long make sure you get there before 7pm.
You will walk out of there super full - and you wont have spent any more than $20. As an added bonus as you walk out you are given a mintie by the maitre d who says bye babe every time!
Maybe its the humidity, maybe cultural diversity, maybe its just popularity, but it seems to me that more and more sushi places are popping up all over Sydney. It must be said there is a huge difference between good sushi and bad, but Toko sushi is all good!
Toko have taken the funky decor, the fresh food and open kitchen styling of their more expensive restaurant and created an amazing little sushi bar that quickly developed its own little cult following! You can either order off the menu, or watch the train roll past, ether way the selection is varied and you never have to wait very long for the dish of your choice!
If you can stand the cues on a Monday night you can enjoy the delights of Toko $3 dollar plates, then it becomes somewhat of a challenge to see just how many plates you can eat!
