We went for dinner on a Friday night. It wasn't busy, but it took a very long time to have our order taken and then for our food. The music was very loud. The staff was friendly. The menu was very limited, but most items we ordered were delicious. We were there for over an hour and a half and... More

Was here for Mother's Day dinner 2 yrs ago. Wouldn't normally come here as this is supposed to be a gourmet hi end jap place by Richmond's standard. So I thought I would bring my brother here to treat him for his bday. Secretly I was looking forward to try their unique appetizers that I didn't get to try last... More

Very fresh. Everything was plated professionally and every item was edible. Went to the earliest opening @ 5:00 pm and then watched the lineup growing. So enjoy. You won't be disappointed

First time here, not like it. Sashimi and oysters not very fresh. Food not worth the price. Ordered associated sushi and sashimi, nothing special and basically have the same fish. Grilled rice balls is big but wet inside like eating soy sauce with white rice... Wont come back again.

The food at Takifugu is delicious but the serving staff could stand to be friendlier. The atmoshpere was tense and uncomfortable with the waitresses seemingly standing around staring at us as we ate. My friend had to wait a good ten minutes longer than me for the same dish and the service in general was slow. When we finished, my... More

Went to Takifugu for the 1st time. It's atmosphere is ok but their service and food is terrible! My parents ordered the $88 special for 2. You share an anorexic lobster with microscopic pieces of meat...parts of their course came right away like the chewy beef and miso soup. We are Japanese and honestly have to say this food is...

The only thing I can... More

Please note that the other reviews here are for the formerly named italian restaurant where this restaurant took over. This Japanese restaurant is fairly new and has a good selection of food. They have a special menu that is either $88 or $138 for two people. The higher price being the better quality of food. This is well worth the... More

We went for dinner on a Saturday night and were seated at our table with the comment "You'll be gone in an hour and a half right?" The rather rushed service ensured that we'd be done in less time than that. Wine and appetizers were out immediately and the entrees were out before we were half done the appetizers. Given... More
