We enjoy Asian restaurants where we get to watch the food being prepared on a grill but we weren't even able to stay long enough to order. Takaoka has a reputation for serving very good food but, if you suffer from asthma, smoke allergy, etc., this is not the place for you. They were fairly busy the evening we were... More

We love to come here for something different. It is a typical hibachi, bordering on cliché, but the food is always excellent and we've never had any problems with service. Some of the best scallops I've had, and certainly the best I've had in Fort Wayne. Steak and shrimp is my go to. Never disappoints. Burnt out on your routine... More

My son chose Takaoka for our family of 10 to celebrate his 16th Birthday. I made reservations for 7:30 pm. We were seated and waited 25 minutes before our drink order was taken. Drinks were served relatively quickly but refills were sparse. The server didn't bother to apologize for the delay. She was rather rude when I asked if there... More

We've been going here a long time but after trying a different hibachi recently, I'll be hard pressed to return. The food is good, but everything tastes the same and is heavy with grease. Last time we visited my tuna was over done and the steak was quite small. My wife also had only two scallops that were cut into... More

If having a little comedic show while the chef is cooking your meal is appealing to you, this is the place. It's a little over rated and over priced. If you do not have a group of 8 in your party you will be sat with another group.

Nice cozy Hibachi restaurant. The chefs were entertaining and very good at their craft. The Hibachi Steak is my go to and is always good to eat.

Had a great time at this restaurant in Fort Wayne IN. Family celebrated Grandmother's 100th birthday. The food was good, the chef put on a great show and the staff brought grandma desert and sung happy birthday to her, a good time was had by all. Would visit this restaurant again.
