Takazawa should definitely be included in your Tokyo culinary tour. Run by Takazawa and his wife the service was warm and welcoming, with perfect spoken english. The concepts behind the food and the menu were creative and beautifully presented. The 9 course meal was a good amount of food and the wine matching was well recommended. The interior was a... More

We just recently visited this place and liked it a lot. The presentation, story behind the food, deception in visual expression, overall a memorable experience. However, I must say that it was quite expensive (when you add alcohol) and I will dare to say that at some points I felt the food looked better than it had tasted and that... More

Loved my dining experience this evening--truly unforgettable. Each dish so carefully and artistically presented with ingredients fresh, local, and of the highest quality. When I looked at my watch and saw that 3.5 hours had passed I was shocked! The pacing of the courses, parings with suggested drinks, and service were impeccable. One of the finest meals I have ever... More

What a really wonderful experience! We are not posh foodies, but we wanted to try something special for our last night in Tokyo and boy was it special! From the minute we booked via email until we arrived the communication with Akiko was fast and always charming. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greated by name and warmly... More

What an amazing restaurant, my partner and I had such a beautiful time. The chef and his wife were extremely welcoming and kept the necessary distance in order to create a mysterious atmosphere for us to fully experiment every dish that in my opinion looked like art from time to time :) I suggest that you leave and trust the...

The ideas are good, it looks interesting but execution(actual tastes) so-so. Ambiance is nice, but many plates are over-salted, idea over the taste. Once is OK, but there would be no second time. Personally, it is hard to understand how it can be rated so highly on this site.

Food was mind-blowing and unlike any other restaurant experience we had. It’s molecular gastronomy. The entire meal was occupied with discussing the food taste and its presentation. We had a great time, dinner was 3 hours and service was impeccable. But I had to admit, the bill was a bit hard to swallow the next morning. The drink prices are... More
