Takamatsu is the most confusing restaurant of all time… The blonde bartender serves more tables than the waiters and waitresses do You damn well better know your Japanese cuisine terminology or the hostess will kick your butt The outside of the restaurant looks like an old Japanese building, the inside looks like a cafeteria The Asian chicken wings glow in...

It was our first time to try the buffet in Takamatsu and the food was delicious , the place was clean, and the service was good. I had the sushi with crab cake, sushi like spicy salmon, the glass noodles, pork spare ribs, shrimp tempura, vegetable tempura, bulgogi, kimchi. All were very good. This is NOT your typical Asian buffet... More

Been there a few times. No one seems to remember me. No "welcome back" type of salutation...hmmmm. I'm a good tipper even on bad service believe it or not. So I would think I'd be remembered. Do not order the Vegas Roll. It tastes like it's deep fried in instant pancake mix. The service is good, not excellent. Meh!

We made reservations for a party of 13 people for a birthday party. The services was pretty bad, the guy never brought my son his orange juice I requested. Then, when I asked him again about it, he just blew me off. Also, it's a birthday party and some of us were celebrating with saki bombs and laughing. We are... More

This place is great. I think I've been here about a dozen times now, and it is consistently excellent. My favorite is getting Korean barbecue, and sometimes they don't bring all of the side dishes, but they will if you ask for them. The sushi here for dinner is very good, many specialty rolls, and many sushi boats. The restaurant... More

Customer service was horrible. We had waited all week to go out the Saturday night before Mother's Day to take our mom out for dinner there. The waitress forgot 2 of our appetizers, and only served 4 out of the 6 of us. By the time we finally tapped another waiter on the shoulder to ask if we might speak... More

I've been here a few times. The food is great! It's fun cooking your own meat at the table. Especially after a sake bomb or two. They have nice variety of meats to BBQ and sides. They have good sushi as well. Service is usually a bit slow, but this is a dining experience--plan to spend a chunk of time... More

We found this place when a bus passed with a big advertisement. We are so glad we found this place. It is vibrant, has a big sushi bar and BBQ section. There's a lot to choose from on the menu. Our favorite is the spicy Korean pork. Forgot the name. The servers are pleasant. Enjoyable place.

We went for a family meal. The appetizer came well after the Bulgogi. The Sushi boats were beautifully arranged, but the sushi itself was not as tasty as it is at Yoshimatsu. The staff was friendly and polite, but we had to go in search of a server for a fork and then waited until the end of the meal... More

Me and my uncle came here because he always wanted to try it. I myself have been here a dozen times and have never been let down, staff is always AMAZING, timely and polite at the grill. We both got teriyaki chicken, he got noodles and I got steamed rice, and both got shrimp, we both had a beer. The... More
