SYDNEY.

Toko.

This Surry Hills restaurant dishes up some of the best Japanese Sydney has to offer.

Toko Restaurant sits on the former MG Garage site in Crown Street. The space has emerged from extensive renovations as a sleek, wood-panelled warehouse with an open kitchen, low-rise communal tables and a seated grill running down one side of the room. The menu consists of mod-Japanese dishes designed specifically for sharing, with an emphasis on quality local seafood. In Japanese, Toko means ‘room within a house to relax’ and this chic yet informal style of eating is quintessentially Sydney. No bookings so the wait for a table can be long at times but head next door to Tokonoma lounge and savour the intricate taste and complexity of shochu, a special Japanese beverage. Settling into the plush leather banquettes and enjoy a cleansing pre-dinner shochu tonic, served straight over freshly cleaved ice, or a late night cocktail and cool beats from the in-house DJ.
