Takumi Sushi

6 Park Road, Gardens, Cape Town


With Minato’s former chef Hatsushiro Muraoka (Papa San, as he’s known to fans) at the helm, you can bet your bottom dollar that the range of freshly made sushi is as expansive as it is phenomenal. Also available is an array of tempura, tofu and noodle dishes.

Give the deep-fried tofu in hot tentsuyu sauce a try, or for something warming, indulge in a bowl of super-slippery udon noodles served in delicately flavoured, piping-hot broth. Desserts include several of Papa San’s home-made ice creams and sorbets that come in flavours such as pumpkin and soy-milk coconut.
