It was the first time we had Japanese food and we loved it! it's nothing like we're used to but it definitely didn't disappoint! The server was also helpful in making our choices :)

I celebrated my 40 birthday in this restaurant. This was my first visit but certainly not the last. Was thrilled with the decor, food, ambience, staff. Everything was just perfect. We ate the best black code and tuna. Wine list is very good. The greatest sympathy they recived when they brought me a big birthday cake with candles..a real surprise.

I really like this place, the decor, the staff, the atmosphere, the location, the plates, the food. However, it is a reinterpretation of Japanese cuisine. Even though we do not share the same view of what this cuisine should look and taste like, I appreciate the fact that they are serving some really good food.

Dear, After you said that we have an excellent food, decor, atmosphere, location, plates, you gave us grade 2? Really do not understand your assessment! Our restaurant is an Asian, fusion Japanese cuisine! More

If you're looking for a real Japanese cuisine restaurant in Zagreb, there is not much choice. Hence, you go to Takenoko (advantages: downtown, easily accessible, near-by parking). The menu proposes a decent choice of starters, mains and deserts, but: the mains are served in such „reduced“ portions (a misinterpreted idea of Japanese fine dining?) that, after all, you wonder what...

Today we were at Takenoko again. As always the food was perfect. We have visited this restaurant for many times and every time the food was fantastic. This is probably one of the best restaurant in Croatia. Any meal from menu is great, and I can proudly say that we have tasted most of the food from their menu.
