On a beautiful March Monday we selected Takara for lunch. Other restaurants were typically Monday quiet in fact hardly any diners, but Takara was humming with happy people!
The welcome was as warm as the sunny day and we had a great table looking out over the view – restaurants should never under-estimate just how much a delightful waitress adds to the whole dining experience.
On the recommendation from a birthday party group at an adjacent table we selected the Takara Lunch and the Teppan Yaki – great choices and both different. Any thought that this was a tasting platters quickly disappeared when our meals arrival quickly – faultless service and delicious food.
For drinks we had the House White – a very good Chardonnay; and Cranberry Juice.
Our lunch bill for 2 dishes & 2 drinks was $46.00 which was good value of the quality of the meal.
We can certainly recommend Takara Japanese Restaurant as a great place to eat on the Strand in Tauranga
