The restaurant has a mix of Korean and Japanese food style on offer. Its main meal offering is a BBQ style 'cook your own' at the table and as such it is probably best to order one of the set menus because it is easy to handle and which are reasonable value. We had a coeliac in our group and... More

Nice experience, we had the basic $45 menu per person. Good quality meat, cook yourself on the 'smokeless' BBQ. Very calming atmosphere, probably better to be in a group. We went on a Sunday evening and it was very quiet.

I bought the coupon for a set dinner for two persons online at half of the normal price. NIce ambience and friendly staff. The dishes were well presented. We had a combination of sashimi and BBQ which we cooked some of the dishes ourselves. Lots of food and the wagyu beef was very nice and tender, melted in the mouth.... More

4 people arrived and hungry and Takumi did a great job of looking after us. We ordered the basic set menu which includes 4 different meats which you cook at the table. Yummo and frankly something a little different. Give it a go, it's good food for a reasonable price

We went here after returning from a trip to Japan and loving Yakiniku (traditional Japanese bbq). We didn't think we would find somewhere as traditional but we did. It was sensational! Staff are excellent also!

My partner and I visited Takumi the other night and had the 10 course meal. We enjoyed every course and couldn't fault the food. We loved the idea of cooking our own food. The service we received was exceptional. Our waiters, Yukiko and Nao were very attentive and lovely. Would defiantly recommend this place.

Whilst staying in Melbourne my wife and I decided to visit this restaurant one evening for a meal. I was wanting some wagyu beef for supper without paying astronomical prices. We had the set meal for 2 @ $45 each and weren't disappointed in any way. The various wagyu meats were perfect. Grade 9. A novel experience of cooking your... More

I was in Australia for 9 days and Takumi provided my family the the best dining experience during our stay in the country. The staff are all very polite, friendly and efficient. The... More

It's only getting 3 stars and not 2 because of the good steaks they have. We came in on a Sunday night and was quickly seated when we told them we had a booking that night. Just as we got seated, the manager had to deal with a customer who had issued with getting his table sorted. After the manager... More
