I really love this restaurant the food is great ! Very consistent ! However on a Saturday night !! 7 pm booking the wine came long time after starter no water to begin with or at all very thirsty customer !! Entrees arrived Willy nilly to the wrong person !! We required a second bottle ! However no one to order from ? The people who kept apology were lovely !!!! My friends total enjoyed the evening and raved about the food ! I how ever felt for $325 For a table of 3 not well deserved ! We got a birthday acknowledge ment quite special if only they had put the same effort into the dinning experience !

Takara is absolute perfection. They never fail to deliver time after time. Food is always fresher than fresh. It is hard to review something that is simply mouth watering perfection. Tonight we had beautiful soft shell crab, tempura prawns and a succulent rare beef salad done only as Takara could do. Top that off with world class ngari- scampi, eel, scollop, tuna, salmon, fish...and my favourite flying fish row!!!!
The quality and freshness of everything equals that of the best restaurants in Japan, and lastly but not least the sincere and wonderful greeting and fabulous service you receive.... THANKYOU Kim and Rachel for another wonderful experience.

The staff here won our hearts before the food arrived. This is the warmest, kindest restaurant welcome ever. We were moved by the genuine smiles and caring service. The food was lovely. The winner list excellent. And to top things off they gifted us a dessert. We left full of ....good food and kindness. A heartwarming experience. Thank you.

I have had dinner here 2 nights in a row, during a recent trip to Tauranga. Restaurant was busy on both nights however I was seated immediately. Staff were helpful and friendly and both my drinks and meal were served with minimal waiting time.
Good range of options on the menu for both food and drinks, which should cover most tastes. I had the Bento Box on both nights which included sashimi. Prices were reasonable with most mains costing between $20 and $30.
This is a great option for dining.
