about us

Upon opening their doors in 2007, Toko Surry Hills swiftly set a benchmark for contemporary Japanese dining in Sydney. Housed within a converted warehouse in one of Sydney’s premier dining districts, Toko’s ‘less is more’ philosophy presents Izakaya dining in its finest traditions. Toko’s principles are based on the seamless integration of food, drink, service, design, and most importantly their team of people who make it possible.


Partnering in Dubai with Bulldozer Group, the venue is located in the luxury boutique Vida Downtown, with an intimate restaurant and lounge, expansive terrace, and a mezzanine private dining. The celebrated Australian architect, Matthew Darwon, who designed the Sydney venues, has successfully carried through a sense of traditional aesthetics with a creative twist essential to the Toko identity. Coupled with a restaurant concept that compliments this exceptional space, Toko Dubai is unlike any dining experience in the Middle East.


At the heart of Toko is a strong team of dedicated industry professionals overlooking key aspects of the operation, each bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and international experience. The team is the backbone of the business and ensures Toko provides their customers with a unique luxury experience, combining highly personalised service in an exemplary restaurant setting.
