The food was fantastic, table service good and the restaurant comfortable. We bought the voucher as an opportunity to 'check out' Takumi as a family, having regularly enjoyed this style of restaurant overseas. We were impressed enough to make it a regular destination. However, on departure we were largely ignored and concluded that as 'voucher users' we were not valued customers. Such a pity, as I would have thought Takumi could use the opportunity to impress and generate repeat business.

Nao is a great host.

Drink Service was slow and it was hard to attract waitresses, who could speak none or hardly any english. The main course follows way too fast after the entree, you still have your entree on the table and they just pile all the mains all around you. You cook yourself so the table is way too full of food waiting to be eaten or cooked. If they just gave u a chance to finish entree that would be much better. Neil.

I really like the concept and execution. And for people who have bought a voucher the staff could assist by explaining how the experience will work e.g. selection of starters, then the grill. But staff did explain what each dish was when it arrived and responded adequately to questions. Thought the sauces needed more 'interest' as the flavours were quite bland .. had to ask for some wasabi to add zing and even that was very mild compared with the one I buy here at Woolworths. Have lived and eaten in Japan and this food seemed less authentic in flavours - perhaps to cater for the Australian palate. Salmon served as entrée was not very tasty.
