Situated within Marylebone’s iconic The Prince Akatoki London, TOKii is a stylish jaunt serving modern Japanese fusion cuisine in a luxe setting.
Setting the tone, one enters TOKii through the sleek lobby of the hotel to be greeted by the calming aromas of the hotel’s signature scent with notes of bergamot and patchouli before descending into the warmly lit dining room of the restaurant.
Beats of chilled house play in the background and the interior is very much inspired by Japanese design with black bench seating and chic chairs combined with contemporary wood and panelled walls throughout.
Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, TOKii offers a la carte dining spanning across hot and cold dishes, sushi and sashimi and signature dishes alongside a newly curated offering of Buddha Bowls during lunch.
Designed with a family sharing concept in mind, the menu is centred around Japanese influence throughout combined with Eastern and Western flavours and traditional cooking techniques.
Prepared by the open kitchen, sushi and sashimi are very much championed on the menu, served on slick glazed tableware, diners can choose from Chef’s selections or to order individual dishes across Nigiri, Maki rolls, Hand rolls and sashimi. Particular highlights include TOKii’s seared yellowtail belly served with truffle yuzu and miso and the delectable Seabass sashimi.
The rest of the menu is devised into hot and cold dishes, small bits and signature dishes mostly consisting of Wagyu beef which the restaurant has mastered as a speciality. Channelling TOKii’s flair for innovative Japanese fare, must-try dishes include the Yellowtail carpaccio with jalapeno and a yuzu sesame dressing and the picture-worthy Chicken katsu curry sliders.
Finish with the Dark chocolate fondant and one of the fabulous cocktails (You Look Good is a particular favourite) and you’ll soon see why this hidden gem has become one of London’s most talked about Asian Fusion eateries.
