Izakaya Takasei


Izakaya Takasei was founded in 2015 by three Japanese owners. The name ’’Takasei’’ comes from a mix of the three owners’ names.

We offer a wide range of authentic Japanese food such as Yakitori (formally known as Kushiyaki), Sushi, Noodles, Tempura, etc. Our head chef creates new dishes every season by obtaining seasonal ingredients & our sake is carefully selected to curate a wide variety of alcoholic beverages to go with our dishes.

Takasei is decorated in a warm and traditional Japanese style so that you can enjoy the food and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.

We will continue to do our best to please our customers based on Japanese tradition.
