I am currently visiting Adelaide, catching up with friends I haven’t seen for years. The town has changed a lot since my last stay; it has become kind of ‘foodies mecca’. Yesterday, I dined at Takumi. I remember being very impressed with this restaurant 8 years ago therefore, it was a must for me to return. This time I loved... More

We recently did a trip to Adelaide and planned our accommodation around being close to our favourite Yakitori restaurant. The staff are very welcoming, the service is exceptional and the food is delightful. The menu is extensive and making selections is challenging - there is so much to choose from.

Yakitori - The preparation of Yakitori involves skewering the meat with kushi (串?), a skewer typically made of steel, bamboo, or similar. Afterwards, they are grilled over a fire. At Takumi you can sit and watch the Chef prepare and cook your choice. For our NYE dinner we tried and enjoyed the Chicken with cheese, Genki-yaki, Wagyu beef, Grilled Salmon... More

Every time we go here it's just fantastic. Great service and outstanding food and something different every time. The challenge is to not eat too much!

Went to this small restaurant last minute as we were staying at the hotel next door. Staff were great and explained that it is tapas style and everything comes out as it's finished cooking. All dishes were delicious. Atmosphere, waiting time, food and staff 5 stars!!! Would recommend to anyone :)

Went here with friends, really good restaurant for a night out. We all ordered several dishes and shared, the staff are really friendly and helpful. They have a good range of Japanese beers, sake, choya and whisky and everyone seems to come with a story. The duck and the squid skewers were the best.

Had a wonderful dinner at Takumi while on holiday in Adelaide. Staff were fabulous, took time out to explain the foods, and helped us with our choices. Watching the guys cooking the yakitori was theatre in itself and it is amazing to see how much work they put into the food before it gets on the BBQ. We had an... More

Stunning restaurant. Wonderful food! Yakitori Takumi is a must place to visit. Authentic Japanese yakitori style with a big menu and lots of sake to choose from. We go weekly and have never been disappointed. Host Eddie and Sayaka are very friendly and uphold high standards.

We always enjoy ourselves at Yakatori Takumi and tonight was no exception. The staff are friendly and make the experience fun. This was our wedding anniversary and we could celebrate in a happy and relaxed atmosphere. Go there for the authentic atmosphere and just enjoy the experience.
