Very enjoyable experience. Great atmosphere, fast and friendly service and the food was superb.
First time here was better. Second time the food was average and service was slower despite less customers in the restaurant.
Great food. Will keep on coming back. Worth the travel and service was superb
Decorated in a minimalistic and understatedly cool Japanese style, Takumi is one of the city’s chicest Asian offerings. Bringing the concept of Japanese charcoal grilling to Melbourne’s CBD, you can choose from mouth-watering meats and fresh seasonal vegetables to be grilled at your table.

Next up, select your choice of premium meats and seafood. You’ll find options like Japanese Wagyu beef, porterhouse steak, oysters and prawns, as well as vegetables like sanche which you can use to roll up your grilled beef, roasted garlic, pumpkin and capsicum. Alongside the charcoal-grill specialities you’ll find set menus and small snacks, the perfect partner to some Japanese sake. Located on Bourke Street in Melbourne's CBD, a trip to Takumi is the perfect way to end a day hitting up the shops in the area or for some after work drinks and dinner.
