We have been eating at Takaoka for years and they are a great place to get a late night meal or for a special occasion. Not only do they put on a great show at the table, the food is superb. I usually get the filet and lobster special. My hubby gets the ahi tuna which is served to your... More

I have been to Takaoka many times in the past & I have never been disappointed. We had a great time celebrating 4 birthdays at our table & our chef even let one of my friends try to flip the lemon half onto the big fork (she succeeded not once, but twice!). Definitely will be back for many years to... More

This place has been around since the 80's, and it still looks pretty much the same as it did back then. The food is good, and the chefs put on a show just like they did in the 70's as you sit before them at haibachi tables. But it's overpriced for the quality of the food and the show. There... More

Drove two hours from South Bend to bring my fiance here in September for her birthday. We have been here many times and love the food and service. The chefs are talented and funny. Food was excellent! Only thing that needs improved is ventilation. You leave the place smelling like the grill.

I recently took my 2 adult daughters, hubbies and young grandson for a Holiday dinnner. Sorry to say it's been many years since I was last there. Same great sevice, fabulous food and resonably priced! Even though they were packed (as usual), we were seated right on time. They sure can run a lot of people through in a short... More

I brought my family here the week before Christmas in 2007. We enjoyed the comedic offerings of the knife wielding chefs. The food as excellent, they made my kids laugh and even brought them behind the grill to catch a flying lemon with a fork. What a great time! Little did we know, that was the first year, of a...

Took my daughter here for her birthday and had a great time. I've been to this place several times over the years and have enjoyed myself every time. The place is a little dated and the presentation is pretty much the same each time but I don't believe I would want it any other way. The food is very good... More

I am not from the Fort Wayne area, but my husband is. It has taken me 8 years to be able to step foot inside Takaoka. Let me say, it was every bit worth the wait! The chefs/cooks are AMAZING! Not only is the food delicious, but they prepare your meal in front of you, and do so many tricks,... More

If you enjoy being entertained and like Japanese food then you will more than likely have a good time and leave with a satisfied tummy! You need reservations and once seated around the grill the show begins. You watch as the Japanese chefs begin hacking,slashing,and whacking your food into submission. It's a lot of fun but a bit pricey. Not... More
