Toko’s cheeky little sister, Tokosan, offers a fast-casual dining experience in set against a cool Japanese street style backdrop.
Tokosan in the precinct of Prahan, home to some of the best bars, restaurants, shops and pamper spots that Melbourne has to offer.
Tokosan creates a friendly, warm atmosphere. Inside is a decoration of fun Japanese collage artworks and a sea of vibrant umbrellas and giant chopsticks hanging from the ceiling. Outside, with a 16m-long graffiti street art mural and kitschy neon signs, you feel like you’re in one of the laneways of Tokyo. Guests can kick back and listen to DJ-spun tunes, or take to the microphone themselves in the venue’s karaoke room.
The Karaoke room is bookable every night and caters for functions.The street-style Japanese menu is casual and designed for sharing, with mouth-watering dishes including tempura softshell crab and popcorn shrimp. Vegan and vegetarian options are available.The cocktail list is quaintly named after Kill Bill characters – the owners are huge Quentin Tarantino fans – with sophisticated additions like the Nikki bell, made with Gin, pimms, strawberry liquer, apple and lime.
