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 !

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
