Walking into the little side street I thought it an unlikely location for fine dining, but walking up the stairs to Takazawa you enter an intimate and calming room with only four tables. With the magnificent cooking of the chef, and the personal service and knowledge of the food of Akiko, you truly get a complete dining experience. I will... More

Overall we had a very enjoyable evening. The food is creative & there were some standout dishes - the firefly squid (presented live where you can play with them before being sent to the kitchen and appearing on your table in a luminous bowl of neon lighting). The entire experience was very good, food paced nicely with explanations from Mrs... More

We had high hopes for TAKAZAWA, and we were NOT dissapointed! The food was devine and we were treated like royalty (Chef even followed us out in the street when we left, amazing), :)! Watching Chef work and getting all the background information on the ingredients was amazing! The food was, of course, incredible and probably one of the best... More

What a fantastic experience. Emailing Akiko to sort out the booking and then having her guide us through the meal was a real bonus and the food itself was amazing. We had 11 memorable courses with the piece of fish that needed to be fished out from below the ice-skin with chopsticks and the vegetable parfait the stand-out dishes. The... More

If you are heading for Tokyo, don't miss this amazing little jewel. It was the most creative, wonderful meal that we have ever had. He is a genius.

There's little that I can add to all the previous reviews other than to say that we too had an absolutely fabulous meal. Akiko starts the welcome long before you arrive, as she e-mails you to explain how the restaurant works and ask about your food preferences. It's already clear that they really care! This warmth continues when you get... More

From start to finish this was the most amazing meal and dining experience I've ever had. We have eaten in Michelin 3 star restaurants however this experience - the friendliness, the menu, the food and the wine surpassed anything I've ever eaten. Akiko is courteous and warm, speaks exceptional English, has excellent knowledge of the dish and her matching of... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Takazawa. From start to finish this meal was superb. We have eaten in some very fine restaurants throughout the world and this one tops them all. Aronia's skills in the kitchen are top-notch and the food he produces is innovative, flavorful, and executed perfectly. His wife Akiko is very attentive and does a great... More

Went here with the wife on our trip to Tokyo and I can safely say it was one of the highlights. The food was varied, delicious and fun. Definitely not cheap (we paid circa 60,000 JPY for two) but worth it if you want to try the best restaurant not in the Micheline guide!

From entrance to departure and everything in between, a true experience on par with the best of the Michelin 3* in France. Cozy, precise, individual attention and reference to each guests likes & dislikes. When factoring all components in pricing, worth every yen.
