Have visited Takumi before when they're located in Burnaby. This was our first visit to their new home on the North Shore. If you come from Highway 1, exit is #1; then head south towards Marine Drive. The restaurant has a very nice location, esp. when the weather is good.
If you have visited their Burnaby location, now the restaurant has become much upscaled, as reflected from their menu. We ordered Omasake (Chef's dinner) priced at C$70 per person, which included 5 dishes + dessert of your choice.
The first course was a dish comprising of 4 appetizers - Kofe beef (cold), Black Cod, baked oyster, and some kind of pate with ikura (salmon roe) on top. Second course was prawn served in a Martini-style flute. Taste was very Chinese, similar to the Prawn in Peach Sauce we've tried at Red Star Chinese Restaurant. The third course was egg custard. The fourth course was sashimi. And the final main course was a choice between sushi (5 pieces) & grilled dish (fish, mushroom & veg). Dessert was a choice between ice-cream & custard.
Food was okay, but we were a bit disappointed as there were not much surprise element as expected from Omasake, apart from the first course. We could have easily ordered our own sashimi, sushi, and egg custard, maybe at a slightly lower price. We wouldn't even consider ordering the prawn.
The day we visited was on Mother's Day. Service was EXTREMELY slow for almost all tables. Nevertheless, our server was very nice (a pregnant lady). She was never without a bright smile, which made up for the slack in service.
I don't think we'll go back for the Omasake again, but would love to try the a-la-carte menu.
