I was there on Monday evening after a long day of work and looking forward to dinner. The shashimi was excellent and the presentation of the dishes beautiful. The service was impeccable, which is always important when you are discussing serious matters and don't wish to be interrupted every two minutes

Menus are good value. Sushis are very good. Not sure this is the best place for "specialists of Japanese cuisine" but for average person, like me, this is very good, fresh and good value.

Reasonable food - spoiled by disappointing service. The Maitre-de-service should be fired. Same guy used to work in Sagano (near the UN). He should be checking which tables need service, not taking orders. Why am I telling how to do his job? Anyway, food was OK , when the main course arrived after 30-40 mins. The 2 points are for...

I ordered the mixed sushi platter, expecting it to come with some of the fancy sushi in the (really long) menu. Instead, it only had the basic nigiris and makis you can find at a fast food. Good amounts of it, yes, but quality was not remarkable. My advice is to stay away from the sushi "assortiment" and go à... More

I've been to a lot of Japanese restaurants all over Geneva, and I have to say that Takumi really does offer some of the best food around. Definitely one of the top Japanese restaurants in the city.

I returned to Takumi but must say still the same bad experience. Food average. Service is just a night mare, no smile no experience, even the chef the service who spilled soja sauce on my shirt, was unable to excuse himself neither to offer at least a coffee. Spend your money at Miyako instead.
