We read about this place in the Qantas magazine and decided it was with a visit - we were not disappointed! The food was fresh, expertly prepared and delicious. The wait staff were very attentive and made our lunch at Takara very special. We has yellowtail and salmon sashimi, which was as fresh as possible and delicious. Then the eel... More

My husband and I had a lovemy, unrushed meal here on a Thursday night. The servers were efficient and helpful. The fish was beyond fresh and expertly prepared and presented. The large Asahi on tap was quite refreshing and tasty. We will be back!

The food actually was rather good. However, the service was very disappointing. Not only was it very slow, but they had forgotten to bring us the correct amount of meat for 4 people, but refused to deduct it from the bill. Strange.

Just the best food and service you can find in Paris! I would call it fine authentic Japanese dining with great service. Very informal yet amazing, after I found it we have been going at least once a week! Great quality and prices, and really makes you feel like you are actually in Japan! Great "Escape" from Paris; without the... More

Second time and always the same quality. Extraordinary Sashimi and authentic Japanese restaurant. Great Sukiyaki and Shabu-Shabu among the others. Must not to be missed. Enjoy it.

Friends recommended Takara - and it was a great experience. The food is excellent and the staff very friendly. Don't expect the food to arrive at the same time but it is definately worth waiting for. We will return next time we are in Paris and meanwhile we will hand out Takara's business cards to friends going to Paris :-)

Visited this restaurant every time when we're in France. They maintain an excellent quality throughout the years, and there's a recent 'upgrade' by finally adding english to the menu, bravo! The ingredients were really fresh and tasted just like in Japan. Loved the sashimi (esp toro), loved the maki-sushi (esp the california roll), loved the udon, loved the deep fried... More

Food is so good, service is at High level. Have you ever been to Japan? If yes, and if you've been in a good restaurant you will feel in Japan. Sushi so are so well prepared, but it's not the only thing that is pretty good... Go and taste!
