Takumi Japanese Restaurant
Server was a little snappy, the hibachi cook was bland no humor. Food a little salty. Nice decor and ambience.
Excellent staff and great food! Family totally enjoyed celebrating a birthday at Takumi.
Excellent food and the chefs are awesome
Great experience but waitress was rude and hibachi chef kept flirting which I thought was very unprofessional
Chef was very entertaining, food and service was good.
REPEAT GUEST: My "TO GO TO" Teppan Restaurant when I just want ALOT of food and great service; not so much about the Teppan grill entertainment I can get anywhere. Being seated with others you don't know and having a conversation is awesome. Been dining here since it's opening and always walk away full and relaxed.
Our food was very good, however, we felt our chef acted as if he was at the end of a long shift and was just trying to get through our meal. We had chosen Takumi over other teppan grill restaurants due to the previous interactions with the chefs we had experienced, and while we saw other chefs providing that same interaction to other tables, our chef just went about getting out food out to us. Later, when I brought this up with management I was completely dismissed. Very disappointed.
Amazing food and the chef was great! Will definitely go back with friends.
Service was lousy. Brought the wrong appetizer (after a conversation about which one we wanted). Forgot miso soup (got that with our entree, only because we asked). Had to ask for silverware, wine glasses.
Food was mediocre at best. Shrimp was over cooked. Edamame lacked salt. Both my husband and I had stomach issues later that night.
Go somewhere else for your Japanese food fix.
Best teppanyaki experience in town! Our food was delicious and our chef/entertainer was awesome!
Me and my husband love Takumi, its become one of our favorite date night places.
Our service was wonderful, and the chef was hilarious! He made the experience fun and the food was delicious! Teppen area was clean, but moderately noisy (fans going, patrons talking, etc). Going to visit again, definitely!
Service was horrible. Servers did not know menu items. Entire dinner took over 3 hours. Not going back and would not recommend to anyone.
The food was very good and we sampled a lot from their meat platters that you cook on the table grill, to sushi, and their coconut shrimp and egg rolls. All of it was perfect. We had never tried the table grill cook your own food, Korean style dining and while the food was amazing I'd rather have someone else cook it so next time we will sit at the Teppan bar. Our waitress was pleasant and timely with attention and drink refills. It was overall a really great dining experience. Oh and their sake cocktails are amazing
Our chef at the table could not have been more rude, we went because it is a really fun place and entertaining. Our chef must have been upset that someone spilled a soda on the table and a little got on the grill, he was so rude after that we will never go back. I thought maybe he just was not a fun chef, but as we witnessed him at his next table, that attitude was only reflected toward our party. Very disappointing evening.
Great food. Great service. Very entertaining. We’ll definitely be back.
Did not even get a table even after reserving and was told we would be over an hour.
Made RSVP showed up on time to be told we would need to wait 15 minutes. . . 15 minutes passed. Was still left waiting for a total of 40 minutes before my wife decided to call Japanese kitchen and they had no wait so we left. It was my wifes birthday. She wanted to try it. Place seemed very unorganized and not nearly big enough.
Sashimi is really good, wasn’t impressed with the bbq at the table. Poor service - our meal could have been done comfortably in 1.5 hours, but because our waiter continually forgot what we ordered and had to come back and check or go back to the kitchen and fix the error, it took 3 hours. Had to track down others for water, order drinks and get our bill. Considering our table spent over $500, I’d expect service to match the price.
Love this place for good food and service, both for bbq and sushi. Only qualm is the annoying male waiter in sushi bar area who keeps hitting on me when I visit.
Fun for adults and kids.
Good food and great atmosphere. Our chef made us laugh and cooked our food perfectly. Great place to take friends and family. Everyone friendly.
We have been to Takumi's several times now with different groups and I am always thrilled. The service and food is great, the prices are very reasonable ($25 for a steak dinner most people will NOT be able to finish). The attendants are happy and playful with children, clever and attentive to adults, and just overall fantastic. I would recommend several times over (after our first time there we immediately bought 2 people gift cards a got a loyalty card, it was so good).
Such a great first time at Takumi. It was very busy but the service was great and the grill chef was great and entertaining
Our waitress was borderline rude! She would only talk to us as she was rushing past our table and at one point, when we asked about drinks, she said "I don't have four hands!" She acted as if we were being unreasonable when all we asked about were our drinks! It is doubtful that we will return.
Great Service, Food and Fun! Thank you, we will definitely be back!
Best Teppan Grille in Albuquerque . Excellent value, food and service!
Great Teppan Grill. Food was excellent and so was the service.
Great time! Great food! Everyone was friendly. Chef was entertaining as well as providing excellent food.
Good place. Server made an effort, but you could tell he was very new and had very little to no training. Food was good, price was reasonable. 2 birthdays at our table, staff was notified of this. I guess they don’t acknowledge birthday celebrations there.
That wasn’t Miso soup they served, the salad was flat and tasteless. The two pan food was just ok.
We love this restaurant. Great food. Epic entertainment provided by the chefs. Excellent food. A little pricey, but well worth it. Lots of fun.
Food was terrible. It was overly salted obviously to make up for the poor quality and flavor. The sushi was very low quality as well. The waitress was very nice, tried to offer good service.
Excellent service and the best teppan I have had in N.M. The restaurant was beautiful and the chef, manager, and waiter went above and beyond for us. They explained all the different parts of the restaurant - bbq that you cook at the table, sushi, and teppan. Great for couples or groups that have different tastes. Definitely our new favorite restaurant in Albuquerque.
Our server was to pleasant
I will come back my be it will be better next time around
This restaurant has real potential IF they can improve service. Beverages were not served until after we had nearly finished entrees. Some items never did arrive. No apologies from the manager. This is too bad because the chefs on the teppan grills are the best in town.
Great food. Has an order of the egg rolls. They were delicious. We ordered a couple of the sushi rolls. The ultimate crunch was my favorite. The price, however is a little high for a roll that I would not consider speciality. We will definitely be back and bring friends and family!
