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

So there are sometimes you go to a place with high expectations and then those expectations are still blown away, this is one of those places! Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was THE BEST! So I didn't know he was his own SOMM, but that's really great because his pairs have been some of the best I've ever had. So... 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. Takazawa is amazing to watch in action and we loved how he greeted and farewelled... More

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

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
