Service and presentation were good, but we did not enjoy their food at all.. tempura dough was too heavy, and sushi rice did not taste good at all..it's a shame because we thought the fish was fresh, but sushi rice tasted cheap and tasteless. However, we were quite surprise how expensive the bill was. Therefore, unfortunately this restaurant is off... More

Came with a friend for dinner and was thoroughly impressed with the service, the quality of the food and the ambiance. We enjoyed one of the dinner specials which consisted of 3 or 4 courses and everything from the soup to sushi to salmon plus the wine was delicious. I would highly recommend them.

Tried the business lunch which proved to be a pretty good deal for a 4 courses menu. Miso as well as sashimis were good, they were followed by a chicken dish that tasted nice but as it was fried its was maybe a somewhat heavy for lunch time, a pleasant duck main was following. More than enough for lunch but... More

we've had a very good "happy hour sushi" time and it wasn't very expensive. Sushi were very tasty and the service was very efficient .

This was my first Japanese restaurant. Menu of the day was good with choice between beef and fish. The plates were delicious and the service timing was perfect. Waiters are smiling. The price is in the average for Geneva. Travelers who are not aware of Geneva cost of living could be surprised.

It was not easy finding a Japanese restaurant open on Easter Saturday. However, an acquaitance had been to Takumi and highly recommended it. They were open so we went. Excellent choice. The setting is very nice, tables are far enough apart to allow good conversation and decore was perfect. Food was great. We shared an assortment of tempura. Then, I... More

It is never easy to rate Japanese food outside Japan but I do believe this place serves pretty good sushi and sashimi although some sushi seem a bit California inspired. Probably not the worse for that as we had a boat and there was more than four could eat

Had dinner here on a Thursday evening. Really enjoyed the restaurant, was very relaxing and staff is extremely nice. I took the cheapest menu option for dinner and it was simply delicious. The miso soup was very nice (and yes had a lot of misu soup in Japan), the sushi was also very good and the duck was delicious. Would... More

It is a bit of a strange experience to lunch at Takumi. It has great food, a very attractively priced Menu for lunch (although the quantities are tiny) but somehow the experience is not you would expect it to be. I cannot tell if the decor is wrong or if it is down to clumsy service but we invariably leave... More

we have been here many times and it is always pleasant experience. Choice is good and the food is very nice. The place is quite big and you can also eat outside in the right season. Sushi and tempura were our favorites.
