We had a reservation for 6:00 and we were seated immediately but apparently they didn’t want us to sit there so they asked us to move..... no biggie but they placed us behind the chef. Not cool! So we moved to the other side of the dining room and the waiter who looked like he came off a rough night told us he was really busy and that he would be back when he could. We took all the signs and just left and went to Japanese Kitchen. Which was an AMAZING experience.

I hope this experience was just a little mishap and that it’s not a sign that this place is being run poorly. Usually pretty fun .

Not at this time but maybe in the future when they are more Customer service oriented. The Hostess/server was not friendly and incorrectly took the order. He also did not split the bill correctly or add in gratuity as stated on the receipt. I had noted that it was my daughters 16th Birthday and the waiter forgot or didn’t read the note. The restaurant was slow and the service was not good.

Probably the only true Yakiniku in the ABQ area. The interior is nice, clean, and new. The experience of your own Yakiniku grill is engaging. The food was excellently prepared, but this place is a tad on the expensive side. This is a great date night location with dim lights, full bar, sushi or grill. Theres really nothing bad to say about this place except the prices. Two people? $75 minimum. Four or more? Nothing under $100. As long as you come here not expecting it to be cheap, its a great place.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
