Have a seat by the sushi bar

On a weekday, the place was full of dining patrons. It was great to be seated by the counter where I watched in awe how the sushi masters perform their art. The edamame was crunchy to taste and the fancy roll was delicious till the last morsel of rice. The service was quick and the staff was... read more

The food here is just so good. The wait staff is friendly and competent. The atmosphere is nice. One of the best places in Madison to get sushi.

Thanks to trip advisor posts, we found Takumi Japanese the last time we came to Madison. We loved it so much we had to come back on this trip. We had more of the specialty rolls and the limited time special "Summer roll". Check out the pictures I posted, it's really good stuff.

When on the east side of Madison, this is my go-to place for sushi. Often get take out rather than eat in and they are always so good with my order. The only thing that I'll note is that I think the quality has gone down just a tad in the past year or two. For example, my white dragon... More

Went for a late dinner and chose Takumi because of the Tripadvisor reviews and I'm glad we did. Excellent fresh sushi.

Service and food are always good. A little pricey, but when you are eating art, you get what you pay for.

One of the better Japanese places in Madison for the price. Always pretty consistent here. Both my wife and I had the bento box, me beef and her salmon. I would've liked mine more med rare than med well, but a bit my fault for not saying so as I ordered but like them to ask also. It is beef.... More

What I love most about Takumi is that it serves great quality well known Japanese dishes. The soba noodles are great & the sushi is first rate.

We are regulars here - we love the sushi. We always have a very positive experience. We recommend this place for sushi on the East Side. They are crazy busy on weekends, so plan on being patient. But it is worth it.

We stopped in with a few friends who had been here previously, but it was my first time at Takumi. We were a bit disappointed that the hibachi chef was off for the night (it was his daughters bday or something) but that was the only negative about my first visit to Takumi. Hibachi was still available but ,are in... More
