Clearly I underestimated this place, at first I was reluctant to go here. There are a lot of people in here every night, but that means that the food in here is amazing. I finally took my friends in here and we had a great time. A lot of good sushi platters.

Waiter and hostess were rude. Manager, promised tickets for the club next door (Elevate Lounge) never came back to our table. Had to go deal with the rude hostess in the front, who told us that we didnt need tickets to get in, wrong

Takami is a really nice restuarant in Downtown LA. Its on the 21st floor of a building and offers a great view of the city. The food here is pretty good but could be better. Definitely not worth it for the price though. The Chicken Teriyaki was rather small. I basically paid $20 for one piece of chicken. The spicy tuna on crisyp rice was small as well and the california rolls werent that tasty. I enjoyed myself nonetheless and had a great time. The one thing I did like was the Sake.
If Takami lowered their prices and/or increased the food portions, It would be a whole lot better!

My girlfriend took me out to Takami for a nice occasion for a dinner. It is a very nice place with a very cool ambience. If you sit by the window you can oversee alittle bit of LA, but mostly the financial district buildings of downtown.
