If you like Japanese cuisine you would love Takumi. If you are not so found of Nipponese food you might like Takumi as well. They give to some of their dishes a different touch, a fusion with Eastern kitchen that works very well. Alvaro Arbeloa, the Spanish chef, is a nice character, and we always follow his advise. Enjoy it!

Went to the old and the new location as well. The terrace of the new location is really nice, more space and good details. The first time I went I was not really impressed by the food, but they made a comeback for me when I ate here last night. The staff is very friendly and the fish very fresh. Good combinations for the rolls, only the tempura veggies were not what we hoped for, but that's just our taste I guess.

This is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have been in the world with delicious food, exceptional sushi and most friendly service. When you are in Marbella you really have to try this place!

Takumi embodies the quintessential Japanese concept of quality: quality of ingredients, quality preparation and quality service!

Quality is an idea that - together with continuous improvement - pervades Japanese (business) culture and it is delightful to see this concept is held in high esteem by the Japanese/Spanish partnership in charge of the restaurant.

Almost half the menu is taken up by starters, salads and various types of sushi and sashimi. The butterfish and truffle sushi is my personal favourite: a humble-looking pale morsel that delivers a delicate but lingering taste sensation.

The absolute shining star on this menu though is the Gyoza: served in the traditional ‘crêpe’, these are simply the best gyozas I have come across outside of Japan.

Although there are no teppan-yaki tables or knife-throwing chefs around in this fine establishment – a restaurant concept that is seen more often outside than inside Japan – the Teppan Fillet of Beef is another fine example of the high quality ingredients employed by Takumi and the excellent standard to which these top ingredients are prepared in the kitchen.

Despite a number of disappointed reviewers on this site, Takumi remains on our list of must-eat restaurants and, if the standard of quality is maintained as high as we have always experienced... we will return over and over again.

One of the best sushi places I have been in many years. Clearly the best is Marbella and probably in Andalucia. It shows that Takumi has a real japanese master 'itamae' that personally buys and checks all ingredients and will approve only best quality. No fake surimi imitation crab here, only the real thing. Also they have one of my favorite wines: botani.
And on top of it: nice, friendly service.
