Our History

‘Taro’ is a ‘TaishuShokudo’ 大衆食堂 in Japanese meaning ‘an everyday dining room in Japan’. It was founded by Mr. Taro who visited London for the first time in 1979 and dreamt of making Japanese food popular by bringing authentic Japanese cuisine and culture to the city of London.

Our Legacy

Taro started on 10th of September 1999 when Mr Taro was able to open the very first Taro restaurant in Brewer Street with a mission to give customers a place to celebrate life’s special moments by offering the very best authentic Japanese food.
