After visiting Toki 4 times in the last 12 months, and have ordered everything from sushi/sashimi, ramen, don and to cooked food, I will give it a combined rating of 3.8. Sashimi from the chef's menu (the sashimi specially flown in from Japan's Tsukiji market) - very good, very fresh, but expensive. Chirashi or sashimi from the regular menu - sashimi sliced like the those you'd get from the supermarket's take-out section. Sushi - OK but not that impressive. Ramen - taste good but the portion is too small. Don - taste good. Cooked food - very good. My conclusion is that they do most cooked food quite well but their sushi and sashimi are definitely not up to par, not because the fish is not fresh, but because they're not made and sliced like they should. I love Japanese food and will probably keep going back to Toki as it is hailed as the best Japanese restaurant in Abu Dhabi, but I will just stick to the hot cooked food.

Toki in the Hilton, they have pretty good sushi here. It is American style, mostly rolls but lots of different rolls to pick from, and a big starter menu. They do serve alcohol and had a nice saki selection. The restaurant is very nice and the staff were friendly. It is a little expensive, all of our bills were about $100 USD or more, but it's sushi in the desert so it was worth it.

Toki is a traditional japanese restaurant with an amazing food and kindly service. There is a selection of special cuts directly from Tokio that are absolutely incredible. I truly recommend!

This is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have ever been to. I came here with my family and every dish we ordered was fantastic. I would specifically recommend the sashimi platter to really take advantage of Abu Dhabi's fresh seafood. Everything from the interior of the restaurant to the presentation of the staff was done to a very high level.

This place just nails all the basics Japanese staples. You could almost feel like you're in a nice hidden shop in Shimbashi. Food gets very close to what you'd expect of a genuine Japanese restaurant. Me and my Japanese wife both love the place.
