best sushi on the east side

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... read 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

Takumi consistently has friendly and efficient service, and, for me, the best sushi in Madison. New to sushi? Try Takumi's fresh rolls: spicy salmon, spicy tuna, California, Philadelphia, tempura shrimp, or the special rolls that are larger or wrapped in cucumber. If you like sushi, they have an amazing selection of fresh fish flown in especially for them: whitefish, tuna,... More

Ate at the hibachi grill last night and enjoyed delicious soup and salad, but before they began preparing the main entrees we were disturbed to see an insect scurrying across the edge of the grill. I'm not sure exactly what it was, but my boyfriend was convinced that it was a cockroach. I was really surprised to see a bug,... More

First visit and the last. Had dinner with a close friend who lives nearby and highly recommended the place. He eats there frequently. We ordered a special tuna plate my friend always orders as did he. We had the salad with ginger dressing which was good as was the soup.The main course was however bad! The tuna was spoiled. I...
