First time eating here. Nice and intimate place. All staff were very nice, ready to give all required information regarding the menu. Food and dessert very good, I was very pleased also about the plating of the food. Definitely recommend it and will definitely come...back here. My compliments to all the staff!More

Food was good and came out quickly. However the restaurant was really cold and as my dad is unwell it was a problem. The main issue I had was I was not told when I booked or when we sat down at 5pm they needed...the table back by 7 and quite bluntly ushered us to leave even though we had just finished the food and still had 1/4 bottle of wine left! As someone that works in hospitality this is bad form and because of this I will not be recommending this restaurant or going again.More

One of the best dining experiences in Ipswich. Authentic and tasty and great for vegetarians. Staff were attentive and friendly. Not cheapest but worth ever penny!

This was my first trip to Takayama, it was amazing. The sushi was beautiful as were the mains. A good selection of drinks, the Japanese gin was delicious! I will most definitely come back again!

This is the second time we have eaten here. We are not from the area and visited 3 years ago. We were so impressed them that we had to try it again this time round. The food was fantastic just as we remembered. Everything was...so fresh, hot and tasty. We had a good selection of sushi, hot dishes and tempura veg. Washed down with a lovely bottle of wine. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, they still had had their Covid screens up between the tables, but they were quite nice ones and to be honest we didn’t even notice at first as it just felt like we were in our own little booth. Will definitely return again next time we are in the area.More

New visited this part of the UK...so looked for some good food and found Takyama. We had starters of Wakame Spicy and Octopus Salad both works of art and tasting fresh and delicious. Mains were Chicken Katsu Curry Spicy and Seafood Udon Spicy. Wow! What...can I say they look and taste exquisite. Spicy was subtle not overly hot Desert was Mochi Mango Ice Cream a great treat to have at the end of the meal. We washed it all down with Japanese tea...Genmaicha...I always find the tea complements the food so a no brainer for us...The staff very very friendly, efficient and attentive. The food was top notch and if ever we come this way again we will be back to try other options.More

Waitress clueless - clearly didn't know the menu and had no concept of covid-service...... had to ask for replacement chopsticks as she handled them without care. Also waited over an hour for our starters as she gave our order to another table. There are many...many better restaurants in Ipswich.More

My first time eating here and it was perfect! I had the Wagyu beef as it is not something you see often and it was absolutely delicious. Great service all round, a real gem for Ipswich
