Excellent food, big portions and very reasonably priced. We had chicken cutlet and chicken fillet curry, with rice, a salad and miso soup, and complimentary some fried potatoes and edamame (soy beans) as an appetizer. That with a big beer (625ml) cost us 3200 yen. Couldn't finish it, because of the big portions. Free green tea.

Sometimes wonder if places such as this really are that good or just a bit over-hyped because people like me follow the Trip Adisor crowd. But in this case it's difficult to go wrong here. Just a simple restaurant with 3 tables downstairs and a 3 or 4 upstairs. By 7pm it was full. Food is basically Tonkatsu style which... More

A very simple place for dinner. Large portions of all the different orders, each accompanied by a rather strange but none the less pleasant salad combination. I'm rating it very good on value and quantity, rather than ambiance or quality of cooking.

I'm really glad we visited Takuma for dinner - there are so many restaurants in Matsumoto to choose from, and this has been our favourite. There was a lovely welcoming feeling as soon as we walked in, despite our two grumpy, hungry kids. The English menu was clear enough to order, with the help of our friendly server, and our... More

We went to this small restaurant for a late lunch based on trip-advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. My husband had the shrimp and I had the pork. The main dish (that included some salad and fruit, as well as meat) was accompanied by 5 side dishes - an appetizer of soy beans and small slices of sauteed potato,... More
