Crowd-favourite restaurant Tokyo is coming to Jeddah

The Japanese concept has been in Riyadh since 1985, A slice of Tokyo is coming to Jeddah.Tokyo Jeddah is officially opening this year.

The original Riyadh branch is a dining destination for many families, and it is a place where people have grown up.

Tokyo Riyadh is considered Saudi’s first Japanese restaurant. It opened in 1985 with the goal to deliver true Japanese flavours and teppanyaki live cooking using the finest ingredients. Fast forward decades later, Tokyo has expanded with another larger location in the Saudi capital and incorporated more fusion dishes, but the concept still remains a fine-dining favourite for all.
