The service was mediocre - our waiter kept putting his hands all over the rims of our glasses when he refilled our drinks. The food was truly bland and the restaurant itself wasn't clean.

I was not impressed. Note: reservations only accepted at least a day ahead. Sushi was not on our agenda so no comment. Not super expensive but more of a kids entertainment deal than a high end Japanese Hibachi grill. Meat not the best. Fried rice disappointing. Sauces were mediocre. Bring the kids. Bring the sports team. Don't expect too much... More

We went here for Christmas dinner and we were not disappointed. The decor was very good, we loved the huge Koi pond out front. The food was excellent and the portions large! The staff was very friendly. The prices are very reasonable too.

The jasmine tea was very mediocre. We asked for a recommendation, and the waiter told us that the dishes on the Chinese section were the most authentic. This was true, the cumin beef was quite good. Good service.

Charged extra for putting bok choy in the shrimp Choy Fun noodles - of which there were 3 small baby bok choy. The noodles tasted of burnt oil. The squid salad was good.

Excellent service and sashimi! The salmon is very fatty----perfectly fatty! We come here 5-6 times/year and have been coming here for over six years. Always a treat!

I have mixed feelings about Takeniwa - I have been there several times and got very sick after eating there once (as did others). I returned a few times and have been pleased with the food. I was sad to see them discontinue Chinese roast duck (one of the few if not only place to get authentic roast duck in... More

Takeniwa has a very elaborate menu...and everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked extremely good. My 8 year old daughter loved their Tiger Roll. After we ate here the first evening, she asked if we could there again at the end of our trip. And so we did. My husband and I had their Mabo Tofu, Orange Chicken,... More

My brother lives in Corpus Christi and recommended this restaurant. Well, we have high expectations because we've lived in Asia for 5 years. Our experience was disappointing from the start. We came for lunch and tried a couple appetizers and ordered from the lunch menu. The sweet tea tasted like grape cough syrup - you can tell they use a... More
