I suggested this place to my uncle who is from Melbourne, here in Sydney for work, and the 3 of us made our way to Takeru from the hotel he was staying in in the Haymarket area. We arrived at 7.25pm and the place was packed but luckily for us we only had a 10 minute wait. Once seated we peruse the menu and quickly decided on our dishes. 

I got the grill salmon meal which came with rice, miso soup and a tiny (soya sauce saucer) size of pickled vegies. Sadly, I found the fish pretty bland. Not much taste there and the meat was pretty dry as well. 

Uncle P ordered the unagi meal which was pretty good other then the tiniest taste of fishiness in the fish.

The best for the night was H's beef dish but for some reason I can't recall what it's called. I had it 5 minutes ago! The meat was succulent and beautiful marinated. Each bite just makes you crave for more.

Overall, this place is great value for money.

I haven't been to Takeru for so long but I agree it's great for money and on the whole pretty good :)

If you go again next time, there's an asian dessert place couple of doors down. I can't remember the name of it. But give it a go if you want some chinese sweet soups =)

Hi Flyingfishgirl - Is that LNC? I've tried it but didn't really like the desserts. Maybe we didn't get the popular ones? The hot food looks good though and we planned to go back to try that.
