Best sushi in Cape Town! Takumi is a Japanese restaurant on Park Road very close to Kloof Street. It has great food, great atmosphere and great location. Price is very reasonable especially because it’s good quality. I’ve tried many sushi places in Cape Town (Beluga, Willoughby &Co, Nobu, etc) and this is really the best in town. Takumi is quite “authentic”; it’s owned by a Japanese man, Papa San, who is also the sushi chef and who you sometimes see walking around the restaurant. I would reserve a table maybe a day in advanced during summer especially during weekends, winters maybe to be safe just reserve if you’re planning on going on a Friday or weekends.
*Note, if you order an “inside out roll” watch out because they are extremely big and with most of them one order of sushi is enough. First time I went I ordered two inside out rolls, BAD idea… too much food, but delicious!*
Favorites: San Diego Roll (veggie roll) and Nasu Miso (eggplant with miso sauce). Also order the Thai beer Singha if they have it 🙂
