Amazing dinning experience!

Takazawa was recommended to us by a foodie friend who said it was the best dining experience he has had in Japan, and let me tell you he is not wrong! The restaurant is located upstairs on a small side street, and there are only a few tables available for each sitting - booking well in advance is... read more

Going to Takazawa is a unique experience. The small street where the restaurant is located, then going up the stairs into a windowless but unique interior with just 20 seats around a few tables already indicates this is something special. As we went end of september we were able to get the unique 10year anniversary menu with alcoholic drinks pairing.... More

The food was indeed excellent. The preparation illustrated the chef's great skill. He did not have to add flourishes to the plates to impress. The quality was just there in the preparation without tricks. The restaurant's entry was a little hard to find even though we were on the right street and city block. The room with four tables is...

It took three attempts at booking a table before we were successful. Each time our request was handled with wonderful courtesy by chef Takazawa san's wife Akiko. She is the interface, only interface between the maestro and and his creations. And what creations they are !! You never know what to expect at Takazawa, it depends on the season, and... More

The eponymous Chef Takazawa and his Maitre d' wife Akiko continue to produce and serve some of the most artistic, creative and consistently delicious food available anywhere in Tokyo. The nine course menu is priced at 20,000 yen per person; which when you tag on the amuse bouche and petit fours, is more than enough food for anyone to wade... More

Absolutely stunning food, excellent service, menus prepared for the individual. I cannot praise the food in terms of technical cooking or creativity enough. It was fantastic, and a meal to remember forever.

It is not bad, but it is not great.... (Compared to other upscale restaurants) Some dishes are amazing: the parfait, tiramisu and the candle holder. The rest are average and the rain drop (eel) is vile! (But I don't like eel so take that into consideration) The dessert (dragon egg) was disappointing. And the signature dish, rattatoule was pretty but... More

What an incredible experience my husband and I had. Everything was perfect from the beautiful and innovative gastronomic dishes to the small intimate restaurant. The chef is so nice and comes around to talk to you. Highly recommend this restaurant!
