What a discovery this restaurant was! It all started as a casual Saturday night, where through my hotel concierge it was decided we were going to try Tekka as a place we haven't been before. From the moment I I walked in everything just felt...and looked right. Of course, Gault&Millau and Michelin haven't gone unnoticed. We were welcomed by a member of staff who kindly explained that our table is going to be available very soon. After a few minutes wait we received a choice of two tables, which was fantastic. The interior of this restaurant is fantastic. Calming, but at the same time exciting. Looking at the menu, it became obvious that this place means business. We were given plenty of time to decide what we wanted. So in the end the decision was to have a soft shell crab, Nara, veal Gyoza, chicken side dish, spinach with sesame seeds, and an Adriatic tuna with goats cheese. It was interesting how we just kept looking at each other being wowed by every dish. May I say that this was the best tuna I have ever had. I could spend hours writing about all these dishes, but I'll summarize by saying this was arguably the best Japanese food experience I have ever had. And the service was another wow. The professionalism, discretion, and willingness to be the best is inspired. I have to give a special mention to Kruno who went out of his way to make this a fantastic experience. So great was this experience that we decided to have another dinner here 2 days later. I've been rediscovering Zagreb restaurant scene this year, and I am so excited by what I see. I have travelled and dined in high-end restaurants extensively, and I am seeing Zagreb as a city to go in terms of fine dining if this trend represented by Tekka continues. Thank you for this experience, and we will see you next time we are in Zagreb.More

On my third trip to Zagreb, I was introduced to Tekka by the hotel concierge. Having previously visited Takenoko in Zagreb, I was not sure it could be beaten as Takenoko is a superb Japanese restaurant and a must go to in Zagreb. However, I...was so elated to find a restaurant which not out of place on the world stage of Japanese fine dining. As I entered the building, I noticed the Michelin placards which boast their numerous entries into this prestigious guide. The restaurant interior has a very calming and relaxing influence, I adored it immediately. The food, we ordered was Nara, soft shell crab, veal gyoza and we were recommended the Adriatic tuna with goats cheese and also side dishes such as spinach with sesame seed and a side dish of chicken. They were all spectacular! The soft shell crab........ always a favourite of mine was sublime!❤️ The tuna fish was the best I have tasted in any restaurant, Japanese or other. The staff glide from table to table with a silent professionalism, I simply love this restaurant. I will mention at this point that we were attended by Kruno, who would not be out of place in the Ritz or Savoy in London,he delivered immaculate service. I pride myself upon the excpierences I have had in the restaurants in London and other cities across the world. I salute you Tekko! A superb team both front and back of house. overall a six star experience I will relieve upon my next visit.More

We definitely expected more from this place. After all, they are Michelin recommended and on lists of best Zagreb restaurants. However, we didn’t like a single dish, and we ordered things that we usually eat in Japanease restaurants. The soups was just bland, hardly any...taste, the veggie springs rolls were greasy and bland, the sushi was simply not good, as well as the gyoza, and the soft shell crab tempura was so greasy and fried that it had very little to do with japanease tempura. The staff is very professional and attentive.More

I was always hesitant in approaching Japanese restaurants before, mainly due to the fact that I am not a seafood lover - more of a meat type. Visit to Tekka, after a friend recommended it, helped disperse my prejudices to a great deal. Beef fillet...in a black beans sauce, with leeks and shiitake chips, and short stewed Wok mixed vegetables from 11 different sorts, peppered, soya sauce, sambal oelek but not too spicy, were an excellent dinner to complete my business trip. Tiramisu with coconut and banana as a dessert added a touch. It was served as a gift from the restaurant, as they just received a highly valued prize - being named the Best Restaurant of Creative Urban Cuisine in Croatia for 2022. It was a pity I was driving, so did not dare to explore their otherwise well selected wine chart. Tekka is located slightly outside the city centre, in a business zone. It's not difficult to park, as there is a multistorey garage just behind the building where Tekka is located. It's interior and exterior are modern, but one does get the impression of a Japanese place. If the weather is good, there is outside seating as well. It's staff is pleasant and competent, helpful with an advice to someone with little or no experience with Japanese cuisine. Certainly plan to come again, during my next visit to Zagreb!More

Everything was great about this place - massive varied menu, nice decor, music, friendly service and the food was perfect. I had sushi followed by steak in black bean sauce and couldn't fault anything. The Tekka cocktail was lovely and the red wine that the...waiter suggested was spot on. If I could suggest one thing it would be a little more time between courses as it was slightly rushed for me. I know others have said the service is a bit slow so I assume that this speed reflects the response to that or the expectations of most diners. If you want a break between courses it is probably worth telling the waiter when you order. It didn't detract from what was an excellent meal however.More

Extremely pleasant staff, atmosphere and ambiance. Great sushi as a cold starter, decent udon soup and a generous serving of sake. The only downside were the extremely modest portions of the main courses (we got the Wafu Steak and the Beef Fillet in Black Bean...sauce with Shiitake chips), which seemed two-thirds the size of comparatively priced main courses of similar nature in other restaurants in the city. Overall, a very pleasant Japanese fusion restaurant with smaller-than-average main course portions. Still worth a visit if you can afford it.More
