My wife and I awaited with lofty expectations one of the modern pinnacles of Japanese/french modern fusion at Takazawa and we were not disappointed. This was our first day in Tokyo after a long flight from London and we were lifted on the wings of the great imagination of the eponymous chef and his extremely talented, welcoming and knowledgable wife...

We would echo all the positive reviews already posted. The dining room is small and intimate. You watch the master at work as he prepares dishes that use so much imagination. We took the 9 course menu which was superb. The wine list matches the quality of the food with a focus on excellent champagnes and whites. Cannot recommend this... More

My husband and I had the singular best meal of our entire lives at Takazawa! It was worth every penny and completely wowed us from start to finish. The online reservation system and subsequent communication with our wonderful hostess, Akiko, was smooth and easy. I submitted my request when reservations opened for March (about two months in advance, at midnight... More

This was definitely our best meal of our trip to Japan that included visits to Robuchon, Kanesaka Ginza and others. Each plate was remarkable both in creativity and flavor. Another positive was the excellent wine list (not too long but with a well thought selection). I can't understand how the Michelin Guide inspectors continue to miss this place...

...with exception of too much salt in one of the dish. Other than that - tasty, creative food made with excellent quality products. Fusion with European ingredients and some cooking methods, but still not heavy, even for Japan. Competes easily with some three Michelin star places in Tokyo.

First of all the place is not going to be easy on your pockets but having said that the truth is that the dining experience at the place is unlike anything you have ever had.

My husband and I have been to some of finest restaurants in the world. This is by far one of the best, if not the best. The truth is that our expectations were very high after reading numerous reviews of the restaurant before our dinner. Yet, they were by far exceeded. It is an unbelievable experience as a whole: very... More

As has been amply written, the food at Takazawa is absolutely amazing. It is an incredible fusion of japanese and western cousine that leaves you wanting more. The service is top notch, with friendly staff (not only Akiko and the chef, but all the sous-chefs as well) and a great ambiance. You definitely get value for your money here. A... More
