Best Japanese food I've eaten and wish I could find something similar in Melbourne. The softshell crab was a favourite and a dish called "the lion king"? (I think?!),... More

Authentic looking Japanese restaurant in Legian. Wooden decor, a sushi bar, paper lanterns and aquariums with live seafood. This Take (there are two) is not on the main road and somewhat secluded. The owner is an older, short, smiling Japanese man. He should be smiling because the food is great. The extensive menu with pictures has plenty of fish, some... More
