Had a great experience dining here with two other friends. We went for ala carte instead of the usual sets as we wanted to sample the highest grades of wagyu that they had to offer this enabled us to also use our entertainment voucher for the restaurant. Having just been to Rockpool the night before and paying much much more... More

Came here with friends for the All you can eat Wagyu special. Had to be out by 7:15pm which was fine. At this exact time we were sorting the bill out. Thought I could use my entertainment card because it says in the book that it is valid for set menus and specials and does not say 'unless otherwise stated'.... More

I was on my own on a work trip in Melbourne and wanted to explore some of the restaurants Melbourne is famed for. While walking, Takumi caught my eye as it promised contemporary Japanese (grilled) cuisine. Here's my feedback on the experience: I entered the restaurant and was greeted by a waitress who seemed reluctant to have me dine there.... More

We had the tofu and seaweed appetizer, and squid (mentai ika) and sea snails, which were delicious. We were two couples and had six portions of wagyu amongst us. The highlight is the charcoal barbecue. We loved that it is charcoal and not gas as in other restaurants, as charcoal leaves a smoky, ashy, natural flavor (in my opinion -... More

A friend of mine invited my family to Takumi for dinner and we were pleasantly surprised. Takumi serves Japanese barbecue (aka Yakiniku) with a touch of Korean, and they do a fine job doing so. We began our dinner with the cold tofu starter which was a great introduction to what lay ahead. The wagyu cuts were very fresh (as... More

I went to Takumi on my friend's recommendation. Dishes that received top nods from my group of friends and myself were: - Takumi's Special (Love the thinly slice wagyu eye fillet that went so well with the finely diced onion) - Black Cod - Tsukune (the grilled chicken balls was so good that we ordered extra servings!) - Ika Wasabi...
