about us

Upon opening their doors in 2007, Toko swiftly set a benchmark for contemporary Japanese dining in Sydney. Housed within a converted warehouse in Surry Hills, 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.


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.
