Splendid, extravagant yet intimate

You probably should google the restaurant and read the reviews (Some of the older ones refer to the old name of the establishment; Aronia de Takazawa) as they can write better, and it is not easy to adequately express the whole experience.

Best meal I've ever had! We were simply 'wow', 'oh wow', 'wow'! To think we nearly didn't go in the first place doesn't bear thinking about! Amazing little restaurant tucked away off the main road. Very discreet and intimate venue. We chose the 9 course menu and it certainly didn't disappoint. Would return in a heartbeat and have recommended friends... More

Takazawa was recommended to us by a foodie friend who said it was the best dining experience he has had in Japan, and let me tell you he is not wrong! The restaurant is located upstairs on a small side street, and there are only a few tables available for each sitting - booking well in advance is recommended to... More

Going to Takazawa is a unique experience. The small street where the restaurant is located, then going up the stairs into a windowless but unique interior with just 20 seats around a few tables already indicates this is something special. As we went end of september we were able to get the unique 10year anniversary menu with alcoholic drinks pairing.... More

The food was indeed excellent. The preparation illustrated the chef's great skill. He did not have to add flourishes to the plates to impress. The quality was just there in the preparation without tricks. The restaurant's entry was a little hard to find even though we were on the right street and city block. The room with four tables is...

It took three attempts at booking a table before we were successful. Each time our request was handled with wonderful courtesy by chef Takazawa san's wife Akiko. She is the interface, only interface between the maestro and and his creations. And what creations they are !! You never know what to expect at Takazawa, it depends on the season, and... More

The eponymous Chef Takazawa and his Maitre d' wife Akiko continue to produce and serve some of the most artistic, creative and consistently delicious food available anywhere in Tokyo. The nine course menu is priced at 20,000 yen per person; which when you tag on the amuse bouche and petit fours, is more than enough food for anyone to wade... More

Absolutely stunning food, excellent service, menus prepared for the individual. I cannot praise the food in terms of technical cooking or creativity enough. It was fantastic, and a meal to remember forever.
