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 were there for dinner and had the 9 course meal which included wagyu beef on the BBQ. A little disappointed that the waygu were a little tough and stringy for our liking. Have had better.

This restaurant was one of my favourite in Melbourne. Takumi is a restaurant specialized in wagyu (Japanese beef). My favourite is a lunch set called deluxe lunch, where you get to choose between wagyu beef pattie, wagyu beef yakiniku, or wagyu beef sukiyaki. Choosing this...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

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
