Very playful food, very cute decors and serving plates. It looks exactly like what I saw from animations. The food is very satisfying and expensive, I would say it's money well spent. Will come again.

Had a wonderful dining experience at Yakitori Takumi. The waiter was incredible thorough and polite, explaining the style of food they serve and what we should expect. The food itself was amazing. Even though the price might be a little high for the amount of food you get, you're also paying for a wonderful atmosphere and experience. Would most definitely... More

I always enjoy my time at Yakitori Takumi with the friendly atmosphere and great freshly prepared dishes accompanied by smooth sake. The owners have recently returned from a well deserved holiday refreshed and ready to go! I will be back.

What a place. From the gracious Eddy who greets all of his customers personally, incredible menu, funky wine and sake list and the restaurant feel. This is destination dining in Melbourne St at it's very best. Yakitori obviously the specialty but additional menu options are sensational. We bow to the Yakitori masters!

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

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 :)
