This is one of the BEST restaurants in the Valley. The bar is chill and cocktails are out of this world delicious (I had the Pocket Full of Quarters and it was soooo good), the main restaurant is beautiful, a very cool mid century vibe with plants everywhere. And the food is incredible. You cannot go there without trying the Grapefruit Avocado Hamachi spoons (probably the best bite of food I've had in my life). But everything is yummy and it's a fun date spot. A++ highly recommend.

Please note, Toro is temporarily closed for a renovation. We look forward to welcoming you back to the new Toro in September 2024.

Feel the upbeat energy as soon as you walk into Toro Latin Restaurant.

Take a culinary adventure through one of the top cuisines in the world, Pan-Latin, known for its unique flavor profiles and South American and Chinese-Peruvian influences with plates made for sharing. Be wowed by the fresh colors of the ‘suviche' bar, Toro's signature combination of Asian sushi and Latin ceviche. Try wok dishes rooted in Chinese Peruvian culture and char-grilled Brazilian churrasco. Enjoy tastings of different rums, the largest selection in the Valley of the Sun. Enjoy meals on the outdoor patio, featuring striking views of the 18th hole of TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course as well as the McDowell Mountains.

We are locals and wanted to try the restaurant during a slow period. We were not disappointed. Very nice, good portion size, good service. One comment, the White Russian my husband ordered I dont think was made with Kahlua and the substitution was not an improvement. Overall, terriffic

Desert Ridge
About the restaurant
Kembara is the latest project from Chef Angelo Sosa that embraces Asian street food cultures, exemplifying the tradition of cherishing time-honored recipes, while also playfully innovating upon familiar flavors and techniques for fresh takes.

The menu is an homage to Chef Sosa’s travels across Asia, with inspiration drawn from countries including Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia, China, Singapore and Japan.

Each dish is constructed around Chef Sosa’s concept of a “trinity of flavors”—a balance between sweet, sour and salty elements that culminate in a perfect bite of harmony.

Located inside of the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa

Fabulous food- started with the Thai Jewel soup It’s cold which I don’t normally like but it was fabulous. Had the crab fried rice and chicken satay Nice portion sizes and excellent flavor Service was great- hotel restaurants are usually average. This one blew me away We ate early which meant lots of little kids and the associated screaming- so go later !

Trash can nachos were okay… had higher hopes after reading reviews but the chips tasted a little stale. Strawberry margarita was good!
