Dear Valued Guest, Hello and Good Morning. We'd like to think that we're the home of sushi, sashimi and any other Japanese cuisines. Glad you thought so, too. The traditional Japanese dining setting (tatami) is a favorite with many. Just adds to a typical Japanese eatery. Looking forward to your next visit. Warmest regards from Rama Restaurants Bali.

If it's authentic Japanese food you are looking for in Bali, make your way to Take 1 in Legian. Seriously fresh, simply presented and more than enough on the platter. The mixed sashimi platter is - without hesitation - the best I have seen outside of Japan! Fantastic value! There are no fewer than 12 colourful pages in the menu... More

Take is something of a local institution attested to by the many photographs showing no doubt the proud owners with various dignitaries and diners of note. It is neither particularly flash nor fashionable but it does offer delicious food in comfortable surroundings at a very reasonable price.

Take has lots and lots of menu variety. From sushi, bento, sashimi, appetizer, ramen, udon ... you name it. They have them all. Tried the sushi. Quite good and fresh. Definitely a lot better than Sushi tei if you want to have good sushi in Bali. Recommended !

The intention was to order a range of maki (sushi roll) and nigiri with hopes the food would live up to all the good trip advisor reviews.

To make it clear, I'm a big fan of sushi and my standards are quite high – I prefer Tokyo/Japan way of enjoying this famous dish. Mostly nigiri, only raw fish, focus on "non-salmon" stuff (good restaurants in Japan don't serve salmon anyway). After trying different Japanese restaurants in the last 2 months in Bali, I can say Take is... More
