Really good sushi and soup for a good price in Zurich. I was there during lunch. The restaurant looks like a normal chinese restaurant from outside but it is nice inside and the staff is friendly. Will definitely go again.

Takano has some lunch menus as well as an a la carte selection including sushi. The food is good but not exceptional. Service is very friendly and efficient. For a lunch menu including Miso soup, main dish and Jasmin tea I paid 32CHF. It was not very busy and good for enjoying lunch and conversation.

Been there several times, never been disappointed. The service is extremely nice and competent. But the food is the main reason to come here. Beside a variety of nice Sushi you get great Tempura, Gyoza, Una Zyu and Bento Boxes. My absolute favourite is Sukiyaki

We wanted to try something new and went to Takano to compare it to our regular sushi place. We went for dinner and I think that was a mistake. The service was very nice but the restaurant was basically empty. The food was served quickly, which could be seen as a good thing but it turned out that they had... More

Excellent Japanese food with great sushi and sashimi! Overall, the Japanese dishes lend a variety. It is simple and clean with personable service. I love the sushi and sashimi with green tea ice cream with azuki beans! The tempura is also excellent!

Stuff members are very friendly and service is pretty good here. Food far from "real" Japanese food but not bad. Keep your expectations not too high and you won't be disappointed :)

The restaurant offers various types of Japanese cuisine e.g. sushi/sashimi, tempura, noodle, donburi (different types of rice bowl dishes), etc. The taste is unfortunately not so authentic. When I tried beef bowl with my colleauge, we got fried prawns as a side dish, which is very weird by Japanese standards. Miso soup almost had no taste. All in all, the... More

After walking by Takano City for years, we finally stopped in as the mood for traditional Japanese struck in passing. I generally rate Japanese based on the quality of either their gyudon or katsudon. As gyudon is less common I opted for that. My wife took zaru soba...a summer classic. The restaurant had all of the hallmarks of a quality... More

We decided on a whim to have dinner here on a Friday late afternoon. The restaurant was packed and with no reservations we had to wait a short while before being seated. It soon became clear to us that it was just one person serving and one doing the cooking. We had a selection of the menu and enjoyed every... More

The worst Japanese food I have ever had in my life. It is a shame to call Japanese food. Price is high too. I was very very upset. Their sushi, tonkatsu, tempura etc are nothing to do with Japanese.
