My wife and travel to Japan regularly for food holidays and on our last visit in 2014 we committed to several high end restaurants in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. After 3 weeks of restaurants at times thrice daily we finished with our last evening meal in Japan at Takazawa after booking 2 months in advance via our Hotel (Keio Plaza... More

...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. We had decided to splurge a little having heard how much people enjoyed dining here and similar to their experience we too had a great... More

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

We had an amazing dinner at Takazawa. The communication from Akiko was excellent, both prior to and during the meal. The atmosphere was both gracious and refined. As mentioned in prior reviews, the food is very imaginative, both in ingredients and preparation. The wine pairings were also very creative. It was a truly amazing experience, one that left us exhilarated... More

We recently had the pleasure of dining here, and the team exceeded all our expectations. The food was creative, interactive and stunning to look at. It was a culinary delight, especially with paired wines to match. Akiko is a fun, witty and very accommodating host.

I wrote down "awesome", "amazing" and "delicate" throughout my notes from the evening. One definitely needs to work one's imagination, as Takazawa says is required, in order to not be surprised by his menu as not everything is as it seems. But it all works wonderfully! From oysters to lotus root to sashimi to scallops to pork to fois gras... More

Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.
