A popular Japanese restaurant near Bangtao Beach

TAKÉ (pronounced ‘takeh’) is an excellent Japanese restaurant often recommended by the Japanese expat community of Phuket, which is quite a statement. We tried it and it was indeed as good as described, with very reasonable prices. The restaurant is welcoming, modern and casual, and for the duration of a lunch or dinner, it feels like you are in Japan.

The menu is as long and as appetizing as you can expect it to be in an Izakaya. It’s a lot of fun to pick a lot of small dishes and share them with friends. The drink list is equally attractive, from very cold beer the way it should be (starting at 90 baht), to a large selection of sakes (starting at 280 baht for 175 ml).

While the choice is vast, sushi and sashimi are the main reason to come to TAKÉ. The quality is very high, fresh and truly delicious. The list would be too long to add here but took photos of some of the menu items for you to see. The sashimi sets come in three different selections and sizes, making them very easy to choose from. We went for the Premium Sashimi Plate medium size for 900 baht and it was a delight.

The restaurant is in Chergntalay, near Bang Tao Beach at the busy intersection of the popular Boat Avenue. While lunchtime is not usually busy, it is recommended to book in advance for dinner.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
