Went to this restaurant twice with my co-worker's strong recommendation. But it was a little disappointed. The soup was a little too watery and not enough taste. The vegetable didn't have enough sauces to cover. I ordered the salmon lunch box but the vegetable were bland and not enough sauces. The salmon is a little over cook. But my friends... More

I went to Takumi for lunch with three other business travelers from Washington DC. I have been so many sushi places while traveling on business and this is among the best. Lunch specials included two sushi rolls with either soup or salad for under $10. I had the Spicy Tuna and the Spicy Tempura Shrimp rolls with the Miso Soup.... More

I cannot pinpoint what makes great sushi, but the meld of flavors in my Americanized sushi was wonderful. The unfiltered saki was very good, not the best I've ever had, but close. I liked the small venue and attentive service. Overall, the best Asian food in Madison.

I love going to the Takumi Japanese Restaurant over by East Towne (near Pier One). The waiters and chefs are amazing, very friendly atmosphere, small but nice decor. The sushi is exellent--they have specials every day, but my very favorite meal there is their Bento Box because I love the variety. Give it a try, you'll love it.

The cooking process was very entertaining. The food was very good, well cooked and seasoned perfectly. Definitely a great place to eat with friends. A lot of fun. Good tip, if you are going for dinner get there by 6 and you will get the first Habachi cooking session. The Habachi area is small, we had a group of 9... More

I went to east side on my birthday with my girlfriend and happened to decided to try the takumi sushi, I was so amazed... More

Three of us went there Sunday afternoon. Appeared to be a nice place and we sat at the sushi bar. Service was good and food tasty until a 1/2 inch cockroach crawled across the bar near my wife. She should have screened but instead put a small dish over it while I called over the host. He lifted the dish,... More

I went to Takumi on a Tuesday night and the place was very busy, always a good sign. Despite the restaurant's strip mall location, the decor was nice on the inside. The food and service were good, with the candy roll being especially tasty. I'll be back the next time I'm in Madison.

Couldn't find a hotel downtown so we had to stay in East Madison and we were happy to find this place! Fresh tasty fish at a reasonable price. I would certainly go back!
