Takamatsu peeps, this is unfortunate. We had been eating sushi with you guys since before the fire, but as of today have made the decision not to go back. Your service is the worse we've had - ever, even for your standards. We spent 2 hours and 45 minutes there - NOT because we were eating and enjoying, rather we... More

Ive been going to takamatsu since before the fire and when korean food was not heard of by most people of Tucson and their only competetion being Seoul Kitchen. Times has changed. Food was good, bad, and now pretty decent. Customer service gets worse by the minute and food is way over priced! I'm a Korean who grew up in... More

Very cool spot that serves some traditional Japanese food and excellent choices of classic sushi. The sushi rolls are very tasty. They serve several udon noodle bowls that do not disappoint.

My friends liked their meals ok but, the Sushi left a lot to be desired. The service was pretty slow. How long does it take to serve uncooked food? I probably won't be back.

Great meal, great service. We've eaten Korean food all over the US and Korea and this is some of the best. We've visited many times and it's always good.

Hands down-this is the worst food I have eaten across America. Oh dear god, I almost vomit thinking about it. The servers are rude and insolent and the soup-I ordered the vegetable soup with Udon noodles--was horrible. The noodles and veggies were way overcooked and the broth tasted like dirty dishwater-bubbles included. I also ordered the egg rolls as an... More

We were greeted right away and wait staff was very patient as we tried to understand the full menu. There was a lunch buffet which we looked at but we choose to order off the menu. The buffet had a varied selection. I had never been to a restaurant where I cooked my own food in the center of the... More

While on a business trip, our hotel recommended this restaurant as it was nearby - the staff's recommendation was spot on! The food was excellent (I had the shrimp tempura and my husband had a rice & beef dish) and the service was fantastic. Would go again.

I have had dinner here a few times and food always delicious...service was great. Haven't been since before the FIRE but we came in last werk for lunch buffet. Was extremely dissapointed. Food was left out too long. Nothing fresh. Most bins were empty. Crusty layer over all food and sushi had no taste and rice was hard. I don't... More
