It's been 20 years or so since I've last been here and I'm glad we went. We tried them during the Savor Fort Wayne event (2 meals for $30). I ordered the chicken and my husband the tuna steak.

Takaoka is a ft Wayne landmark and I want to love it, but I just can't. The prices are high, the atmosphere outdated, the food average. There are better hibachi places in town.

This place is really worth a visit. Even if you are not into Japan cuisine. It's more about the experience. It's mostly entertainment with some good food. I did not like all the foods they served, but their shrimp and steaks are really good. I just love to watch the person perform while preparing your meal. There's fire, knives, throwing,... More

Horrible customer service! Had a 4:30pm reservation Saturday 11/15/14 for 4, 2 adults and a 6 & 4 year old. The 6 year old requested the dinner because he remembered having fun there several other times. Brought along an extra adult & we arrived at 4pm. Was told we wouldn't be able to be seated until 20 minutes or so... More

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.
