Sydney-based contemporary Japanese restaurant brand Toko will open its first branch outside Australia at the Vida Downtown Hotel in Dubai in December 2013.

The Dubai venue will be created by Bulldozer Group in collaboration with Emaar Hospitality Group, with its parent restaurant having opened in Sydney over six years ago.

With direct access from Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, a dining room and bar featuring soaring ceilings, coupled with an expansive terrace, the modern Japanese restaurant takes its inspiration from the Japanese bar concept 'Izakaya' with a menu tailored to encompass a traditional sushi bar alongside a dedicated robata grill and kitchen.

The design of Toko Dubai will use a minimalist neutral palette featuring beautiful natural timbers and streamlined joinery.

Toko Sydney enjoys a celebrity following with the likes of Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Hawkins and Baz Lurhmann all regular visitors, alongside international A-listers such as Leonardo Di Caprio, Vin Diesel, Salma Hayek, Jermaine Jackson and Nicole Kidman.
