Very delicious food - I got the lunch sashimi set for $20.90 and it was huge! Lots of amazing sashimi (including scallops!) and lots of other yummy tempura delights! Very good value and the staff are very nice!

Food is amazing at Takatori. Service can be a little slow at times, but they're really friendly and go to great lengths to meet your needs. A neighbourhood favourite!

Very tasty Japanese food, however a little pricy for what you get in some meals. My partner ordered the Waygu Steak which was $48 and probably got a third of what we were expecting. However i got a Miso Eggplant entree and it was half an eggplant so just be prepared that the mains aren't as big as expected. Great service, can only split the bill if you pay by cash which is annoying.

Delicious fresh food in a relaxing atmosphere, with friendly service from staff and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend Taketori and would happily go there again.

Food was good but unfortunately service on the night let them down. There was six of us, the difference between the first main meal served and the fith was over an hour and the sixth we told them not to bother. Entres served right to the end, we had all finished our meals (except the one that never got his) by the time the three rice dishes came out. I will continue going for lunch but never again for dinner. Once again food is good when you get it and the staff very polite, they did give the group a small desert each for free but did not make up for ruining the expirience.

Excellent food and reasonably responsive service. We had the banquet and the variety and quality of food was very good. Will return again. I suggest you book as it was busy.

The food selection is broad and excellent. We thought this was very well priced and the service was excellent. The wine list is very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.
