Overall we had a very enjoyable evening. The food is creative & there were some standout dishes - the firefly squid (presented live where you can play with them before being sent to the kitchen and appearing on your table in a luminous bowl of neon lighting). The entire experience was very good, food paced nicely with explanations from Mrs T (Akiko). The wine list was limited, expensive and when ordering by the glass, no price is indicated (& not much choice). Ordering sake by the glass at Yen 2,000 per glass is rather on the high side (for a very small portion serve). Here again - no choice is offered and one simply settles for what is served, although the sake bottle is shown to you when it is being served.
Service is warm, friendly and with a maximum of 10 diners at any one time, the experience feels more like eating in someone's home versus in a restaurant.
The Takazawa experience comes at a hefty price - with a couple of drinks (ordering by the glass), it comes up to about Yen 35,000/ head. Despite having an enjoyable meal, I am not sure I share the enthusiasm that other reviewers have posted - mainly because when comparing other stellar meals at cheaper or comparable prices (in Tokyo), Takazawa falls slightly behind in the "wow" factor. Would I recommend - yes, do go for the experience but I personally wouldn't be going back in a hurry; unless they offered a more reasonably priced menu.
