We never get take away as no where delivers to us and never found anywhere worth driving too. We Drove 20 mins to get to Takayama and it was absolutely worth it. The man I spoke to was lovely and helpful. All the food we...ordered was delicious, the tempura, all the different type of sushi, the chicken and the salmon teriyaki, gyozas e.c.t. I am sure everything else is as good. Ordered far too much which we have eaten for the past two lunches. Recommend highly, with out a doubt you will be eating well. Will definitely be going back!More

We have been customers for the past few years and the food is uniformly excellent. From the Katsu Curry to the Chicken teriyaki great ramen and the wonderful sushi, all is delicious. Now that they are only allowed to do takeaway, we regularly order and...although I wouldn't recommend tempura as the batter naturally gets soggy in the container, this would be the case for any restaurant! Love the gratis fresh fruit and the easy ordering app.More

We ordered this take-away. The ramen was anaemic and the chicken and so much fat rendered on it. The egg was grey. I would avoid ordering this at all costs. I called to explain to the manager and all his did was argue with me....Terrible customer service. AvoidMore

Some of the best Asian food we have eaten out of Asia. Both my husband and I have been fortunate enough to travel for business and leisure extensively in Japan and Korea and thought the food at Takayama was fantastic. Fresh, tasty and simply fabulous....I just wish we lived nearer, we would be back every week!More

Had lunch here, food rolls both soft crab and tuna and avocado. The bugogi roll was not very nice. Good aubergine with miso as well as eel and tuna nigiri. Service attentive.

This was our first visit to Takayama since the lockdown. We were pleased to see the staff taking the additional safety measures seriously (temperature check before being seated, and tasteful dividers between the tables, plus thorough cleaning when tables were vacated). Food was as good...as ever - I like the fish main courses (cod teryaki etc), while my wife revels in the choice of veggie dishes from the main menu and also the vegan menu. On previous visits we had sometimes had 'inconsistent' service - this time the staff were on the ball and friendly at all times. We visited on a Tuesday evening - pleased to see that the restaurant was reasonably busy. It should be - it is one of the best restaurants in Ipswich.More

We just had lunch here. Ultra fresh sushi, light tempura, perfectly grilled yakitori all washed down with warm saki and green tea. We finished with a great combo of mochi matcha ice cream and banana fritters. Wrapped up a wonderful meal on a wet Sunday...in Ipswich with a smooth Japanese whiskey. Excellent food, perfect ambiance, great staff and very COVID friendly. Would have cost twice the price in London and probably not as good. Best meal all year!More

My husband and I are huge fans of Japanese food so we decided to book a table for lunch, and we are so glad that we did. This is the best Japanese restaurant that I have been to in years! We ordered the sushi platters...which were delicious - the quality of the fish was outstanding. Customer service was fantastic with excellent Covid-19 measures in place. Tables were separated by screens which actually made the dining experience more cosy and intimate. There are temperature checks, hand sanitiser and a track & trace scanning code at the door. All staff in masks and visors. The whole place was very clean so we immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. We will definitely visit again!More
