Very pleasantly surprised by the Groupon deal we purchased. Had originally booked for 6pm sitting but we're able to change reservation to 8pm sitting the night before. Had noted from other reviewers the portions were small but found the servings were more than adequate and in fact were unable to finish the salad, rice and miso soup that were included.... More

We are not fans of Groupon restaurant offers having had bad experiences before but we chanced upon a good deal offered by Takumi advertised as 40% off through Groupon plus a 15% time-limited discount special. It was a 10 course Japanese/Korean meal which included sake. Before buying the deal, I read the recent TA reviews and was satisfied that it... More

After being away for a couple of years, my husband and I were really excited about going to one of our regular favourites, TAKUMI. Their wagyu beef stew used to be the perfect winter starter - beyond tasty, with a repertoire of subtle spices complementing (not overwhelming) the beef flavour and a perfect hearty texture. The staff running the restaurant... More

I loved, loved the food at this restaurant. The portions were small but each mouthful a gastronomical delight. The small portions were not to my husbands liking though thus not 5 out of 5 for us.

FANTASTIC! We had the basic set menu A and loved it. Standard selection of starters (although quite salty). The main is the best - top quality slices of beef, with a choice of plain, or marinated. You then get to barbeque your own food on the charcoal grill installed in the table in front of you. Finished with a choice... More

Lunch was a set menu voucher deal and, having had poor experiences before with these special offers, I was uncertain what to expect. I needn't have worried. Everything about this dining experience was near perfect. Service was warm, friendly and very efficient. The atmosphere was 'busy' but not intrusive. Even tough we were on a table for six with another... More

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
