“Great service nice food but we got sick!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

It is hard to rate this restaurant as we had a ver nice dinner, the food was really tasty and nicely cooked, the service was fantastic and the venue is very cozy... However, unfortunately we got really sick immediately after finishing dinner. Food poisoning which we think was from the tempura prawn as those who didn't try the prawns didn't get sick. It was a shame, and we understand that things like this just happen...however the quality of the food is the most important thing...the service can be great, the food can look and taste amazing and the location can be awesome...but food poisoning ruins it all. We will not go back, but would have done hadn't we had this experience.

“Scrumptious Japanese”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The food was absolutely amazing! Teppanyaki, seared Tuna and Prawn balls were not only presented well, they tasted absolutely fantastic. Only niggle was the pace of which the food was served - possibly because we booked for 8pm such that they could fit a second table in at 9.30-10.00? A shame as the personal service was great also. Overall a must.

“Soo disappointing!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

:Loved Takumi last year, went 3 or 4 times when they were situated beach front. New premises are nice but very big and was quite empty when we went. Service still good, food has gone down hill though! Why leave open bottles of soy sauce on the table, when i poured mine, about 6 dead flies fell out with it, yuk! Sushi very average, rice very stodgy and not cooked well. Very disappointing all round with the food, the brownie for dessert was dry and crumbly and unpleasant and there was no atmosphere in the restaurant. We are japanese food lovers and frequent lots of great japanese restaurants in London, this is really not great at all. If you want some lovely sushi, pop to Cappuccino on the beach or try the 2 new sushi restaurants in Puerto Banus or the Puente Romano hotel. Takumi is over priced for poor quality food.

“Woooowww yumm!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Very, very, very GOOODD sushi! Fresh, a little bit different than 'average sushi' and good service. Although it was by far the most expensive meal we had in Spain (110 for 2 persons, incl 6 wine and a dessert), we had a great evening at Takumi. Recommended? ABSOLUTELY!
