Best Dinner Ever in the World!!!!!

Chef Takazawa is one of most imaginative, creative chefs in the worlds. It’s a performance of an eleven course modern Japanese meal; and we had them paired with wine. The chef was on the stage; and this night, they were 4 tables totaling 9 guests. Every dish took lots of time to create, prepare... read more

I wish I was a more skilled writer, perhaps then I could share just a small feeling of what dinner is like here. It's an experience I will long relive in my head. Ten lucky people eat here a night. The room is elegant, but stark. The art here is the food. First off Chef Takazawa's lovely wife Akiko makes... More

I have put off writing this review because I do not feel that I can do this amazing chef justice with mere words. He is extraordinary and he and his wife provided me with a culinary experience that I will replay over and over in my memory until I get to eat there again. I have eaten at many of... More

The food was exquisite, service amazing and Akoki Takazawa , the wife of the chef , spoke very good english . Where else would i ever have the celebrity chef himself preparing the food in front of us and at... More

This restaurant exceeded all my expectation! We visit all gourmet and Michelin restaurants all over the world, but this one is the most creative cuisine I have ever experienced. The food is very tasty but light at the same time. They make pasta nudes out of squid or egg yolk out of carrot and you would say the difference. It's... More

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.

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...
