Craved for Japanese so I tried this place out. Have high standards when it comes to Japanese cuisine because of the scarce number of "authentic" Japanese restaurants and the dishes of course. As soon as I entered not a single server was in sight. After more than 3-5min they all came in out of nowhere. Had to ask for the menu to select. Tried the unagi roll and Chicken Karaage. Honestly, I couldn't taste the unagi that much (I can name several restaurants whose rolls have more unagi than this but so prefer not to mention it) and the rice topping average. Not sure if I just ordered the wrong food, when I entered all of them took a break, or just not a good day to drop by. Prices for these 2 orders amounted close to P600, which is somewhat unreasonable because of the unimpressive taste and service. Maybe another visit would make me more comfortable, but not in the near future though.

The wife suggested that I try Takashi, the other japanese resto in Pioneer Center (the other being Tokyu). Good thing it was a Sunday and the area was crowd free. The place was unassuming but had better ambience than it's neighbor. We were welcomed by friendly andaccomodating staff. On terms of food presentation, I would give it a "C". The taste,I give it a "B". The tuna sashimi looked a bit sad it still tasted fresh. The kani salad was pleasant with smoky sweet flavor. The yakisoba had a spicy- sour taste and tasted average. I liked the oyakudon the most. Chicken was tender with just the right flavor. The sauce, egg and the rice mix was good. I am open to trying food sometime in the future.

Uhh um mehhhh! My thoughts when I tried their food. Perhaps I've set such high expectations?
We ordered Shoyu Ramen (P280) and Crazy Maki (P160). The ramen - noodles seemed overcooked, the pork was not tender, the broth was just ok. I like that the maki has generous amount of kani salad toppings. On the flavor of both the ramen and maki, its ok lang, I've tasted better versions else where. My friend commented perhaps we should have ordered the spam gyoza and their fried rice(seafood chahan)instead, coz those were their bestseller. Oh well... But at least they give good service, the server was quick to give recommendations and always refill our glasses of water.

A low key, no buzz generated yet Japanese resto located in a quiet corner of bustling food district of Kapitolyo. I would never have given this a thought but my love for Japanese food brought me here to try out their deep fried chicken yakitori, spam Gyoza and seafood chahan.

I was impressed and left the place with a full tummy and with extra money in my wallet! I liked their seafood chahan with those salmon bits just heaven. The fried chix yakitori was really something novel just like the spam Gyoza and would make me comeback. The tempura was very good too.

For diners who love and live the Japanese culture. Takahashi is a great find. I tried the tan tan mien first and it can hold its ground against ramen specific restaurants. You Can also order extra house made noodles which is a delight. We tried the beef teppan and house fried rice. Not bad for the price. The spam gyoza is a treat for spam addicts but I really prefer ultra toasted spam. I shall come back since its price range is value for money. Waiters and staff are friendly and the place is clean and well maintained. Too bad. No dessert!!! Hahahaha. If I forgot, house tea is good so more points.

first time to try this new japanese though i saw this opened few months back. i tried their tonkotsu shoyu ramen and spam gyoza as recommended by the wait staff as their best sellers. not bad at all for the ramen at this price. it tastes better than kichitora and ramen bar shoyu based ramen... i like the spam gyoza i think it's a twist of an old gyoza recipe... i like the cheese and smoky flavor of spam. it's something new. i like to order another one but i'm already full.128516

This new restaurant was recommended by a friend. Agnes and I decided to try it for lunch today. First thing we noticed was the music, Japanese renditions of pop songs. We found ourselves trying to guess each song as it came on. Imagine hearing Bruno Mars, train, and the 1975 in Japanese! Fun!

We ordered the Hokkaido miso ramen, beef teppanyaki, spam gyoza (yes, spam! Yum!), yaki tori, crazy maki, and chahan. We absolutely loved the ramen, the flavor of the broth was excellent and I think I've finally found noodles that I like! This has always been an issue for me at other ramen places. Next up was the spam gyoza, it was interesting, good interesting. The beef was very tender and had a good flavor. I wish we had he room to try more dishes, everything we had was yummy. And the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely come back to try the other dishes!

I would recommend more food choices and since the kitchen is see through, or meant to be viewed from the glass, it should probably be the plating area that is directly seen, not the slicing and washing area.

Tried this last night. They were still on soft opening but their service was pretty good. Their sashimi and tempura were average. The gyoza was too oily. Their seafood fried was pretty good. All in all I'd try them again later when they have everything on their menu.

New restaurant alert, but personally, nothing quite raving about yet (?).

Ordered the Salmon Teriyaki Maki Sushi (Php 230). Good combination, but each piece of salmon on top was close to paper thin. I'm not even joking. I have never seen a Japanese restaurant scrimp on salmon that much.

Ramon L had the Tori Karaage (Php 120) with a cup of Cha-Han (Php 70). The Tori Karaage also came with a small salad on the side. I sampled one piece of chicken and it was undercooked. I could tell from the way it was very moist and powdery on the inside. I would've asked for it to be exchanged, except I picked the last piece from his plate, so there wasn't much they could do either way. I asked Mon about it and he simply shrugged and said, "it could've spent more time in the fryer," so I'm guessing that he just didn't mind it.

I was deciding between the Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen (Php 280) or the Tonkatsu (Php 150), but I ultimately got the latter. Good presentation, and also served with a small salad drizzled with sesame dressing. There was no trademark Tonkatsu sauce, but the big pork cutlet was drizzled with a red chili sauce that worked fine, except I would've preferred it with Tonkatsu sauce. The breading was tough, and so were some parts of pork as I had difficulty taking small bites. Guess I should've gone with the ramen.

Service was okay. Restaurant set-up was okay. Price was okay. Everything was okay, and even if the experience wasn't great, I'd say it's forgivable as they are on soft opening. Would probably go elsewhere for Japanese food though.
