Edamame hard and under salted. Gyoza reasonable. Sashimi not worth the name. Wasabi, a sad green paste with little flavour. The chef is different to when they opened but no improvement at all. If you rate this above two you have never had real Japanese...More

The lunch specials are generous (once you work out what's included etc), the service is efficient - and once they know your face, it's very friendly. I'm glad to be in the Friend Zone :) Go a Sashimi Box for example and see what you...More

I enjoyed a delicious mel here recently with a friend. Standard Japanese fare done generally well. The sashimi and gyozas were great, and the beef teriyaki good. However the vegetable tempura was disappointing as the batter was too heavy and the dipping sauce bland. The...More

Before moving to Australia, Shinji Tani was head sushi chef at Zuma in London, and originally came to Sydney to help open Toko. With a pedigree like that, it's no surprise that the sushi dishes at Tany's in Redfern are the shining stars at this...More

I've just completed eating take-away Sashimi Box from here. It was really good! All made fresh, and was accompanied with gyoza and tempura vegetables, and a delicious miso soup. Quite reasonable prices. Very very good.
