Good little place in IFC. Service was good. Genuine. And attentive. Food was not bad. The best place to sit is around the counter but the open flame does mean it is Hot and staff will normally advise you not to sit there.

You are welcome with a warm greeting of all the staff in the beginning. It is really nice. We had the sashimi and the barbecue. Both excellent. I rated the restaurant as very good because only the hostess speaks English. The waiters don't.

Service was excellent, welcome warm and loud. Fish, sushi combimations and all portions tasty, fresh and well prepared. Sake was served promptly and setting was harmonious. I recommend for business and pleasure. Will try to come again to try lunch also.

Robatayaki is a traditional cooking style of Japanese Fisherman which origins from sea shore side in Sendai. "Takumi" means"Masterpiece", the chef with excellent cooking skills. In 2011, first Takumi outlet settled in Shanghai ifc shopping mall. Adhering to the traditional Robatayaki culture, our Japanese Chefs insist on selection of fresh ingredients and using high quality charcoal called"Binchō-tan". Customers who are escorted to the Robata Counter, where displays fresh seafood and vegetables, pointing out what they want, waiting with excitement the chefs to serve directly the grilled dishes by wooden paddle. Only natural sea salt is used in the process of cooking to keep the authentic flavor. The healthy concept is much advocated in Takumi. It's truly our pleasure to provide you a unique dining experience. Please enjoy freshness with premium sake in nostalgic& festival atmosphere.
