Takumi was always a 5* to me, until last week... no more All you can eat grill. The food may still be good, but it is now terribly expensive and we are not going back :-(

Great variety of shared dishes. Very surprised that it had a great selection of vegetarian options. It has a lovely ambience. The cost is middle to high but worth visiting for the taste and food presentation.

I went with my wife and some friends last week. Although there was no alcohol on offer, the service and food was awesome. We ordered several entrees and some mains with the premium meat being the star. Definitely will be back and highly recommended

We stopped in here as we were late for another booking at a very busy restaurant. We didn't realise it wasn't a typical Japanese restaurant and mainly served grill on the table. The staff were absolutely lovely and with our limited time before our theatre...More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
