Taking Japanese traditions and giving them a modern edge, this stylish Melbourne CBD restaurant is committed to providing diners with the highest quality, that’s why you’ll find only the best meat on the menu here. Takumi specialise in yakiniku, Japanese chargrilling, and at this Bourke Street restaurant you can create your own dish by selecting your desired meat and vegetables and grilling it at your own table, just how you like it.
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. Start with some grilled black cod with miso, scallop sashimi with sizzling oil and citrus soy sauce, or grilled chicken balls.
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.
Amazing food, great experience, and fantastic customer service. Staff were so pleasant and the Wagyu... Oh the Wagyu... so good! Can't wait for the opportunity to go back, already recommending this place to others
Never fails - always consistent. Highly recommend, not just for the beef but sides and other dishes like bimbimbap always hit the spot. Will be returning again.
This was a brilliant self-bbq restaurant. Staff were incredibly attentive and the set menu was absolutely excellent - well balanced flavours and textures. Good ambiance, and I’d recommend an early booking so you can have the place to yourself! We will definitely be coming back!
Great quality beef as usual. We all went with the all you can eat menu and our group of friends had a wonderful night with excellent service. Thank you Takumi.
Received a voucher from a family member as they know that we love this place and often go here. Great service, great food, great setting equals..great evening! We usually opt for the premium cuts (out of habit), but we were pleasantly surprised by the regular cuts as they were still tender and very tasty. We always recommend Takumi to our friends!
Very good service and excellent quality of food and wine at reasonable prices. Staff were friendly. Very easy to book via quandoo online. I would recommend online booking service via quandoo and Takumi.
Great service and delicious food. All food was fresh and the facilities were extremely clean. The staff were so friendly and were very bubbly. I enjoyed Takumi and I will be back.
As usual, Takumi always deliver a fantastic customer service. Fresh ingredients, good atmosphere, and reasonable price for a premium Wagyu beef. Highly recommended if you are looking for a premium restaurant with a reasonable price.
This is out go-to place when in Melbourne CBD, and once again left us very pleased. Great authentic dining experience with lovely staff. We again went for the tabehoudai option, and with a booking earlier in the evening this was optimised by the attentiveness of the staff and a lovely quiet table. Will be back of course!
Attentive wait staff, absolutely gorgeous food and a reasonable price. I've been three times now, and consider Takumi as one of my favourite places for good Japanese food.
