Takumi Robata & Sakebar 炉匠

The set up at Takumi is quite impressive with the big pit in the middle of the restaurant with fish and etc grilling continuously.  We were immediately taken back with the noise level however: ALL chefs and wait staff would scream their welcome and goodbye in Japanese whenever a customer walked in or out.  And when I mentioned scream it's top of the lungs scream, to a point where we could not carry on a conversation. 
The food was actually not bad.  From the set-lunch menu we had grilled mackerel (~RMB100) and beef sukiyaki (~RMB130).  Both were tasty and of reasonable size, and they made good and efficient lunches.  I just wish they would stop the screaming!
