My son and I love the Sushi for Two. Ever since we lived in Japan when he was a toddler, Japanese food has been our "thing". As an adult He returns to Japan every couple of years and keeps me informed about changes in food and culture. He appreciates the food at Takumi. While some fish travels well and some... More

My husband and I go to Takumi often and it's always a great experience. The food is amazing and so are the people who work there. I would eat there all the time if I could!

What can be said but perfection! The TORO was exceptional as was every specialty roll ordered. My daughter and I have begun a serious Takumi habit and just don't feel the need for Red, Takara or other spots anymore. Feels like family looking after family at this place. Excellent cocktails too! Thanks for being my "go to" place!

This is a great Japanese restaurant that serves fresh seafood. It deserves the top of local listed Japanese restaurant.

We walked in and were greeted with a roll of the eyes and a very unhappy greeter/server when we asked for a table for 7. We sat at the hibachi grill (they didn't have a hibachi chef so sushi was the only option). Everyone really liked their sushi rolls though the presentation wasn't as good as many other sushi restaurants.

really loved this place. We came here on the weekend for their lunch specials and the bento box and hibachi were both very reasonably priced. We had a salmon avocado roll that was full of salmon and avocado, something that usually doesn't happen which was very refreshing. the fish was fresh and the portions were great. Definitely worth it to... More

A lot of variety here. The sushi is very good. There is plenty to share if you order the boat and it was nicely presented. We also had the chicken and shrimp. The smoothies were also good.

We're back in Madison on business this week and we came to Takumi Japanese Restaurant for our sushi fix. This is easily the best sushi in town, bar none! The place was full when we got here, we were luck to get the last open table. I started my dinner with a chirachi salad, which is basically sashimi on mixed... More

This is our favorite "go to" for a wonderful night out. The staff is very courteous, the sushi is extremely fresh, and straight forward. They have special rolls for those who prefer a bit of fusion, but you cannot beat the freshness, so we prefer sashimi, etc. They also have a hibachi grill, but in all the years we have... More
