“No service at all”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

No service at all. Unacknowledged by staff and management for the duration. Left without being served. Bar top filthy. Horrible experience. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. Detracts from the wonderful Franschhoek experience and atmosphere

“Owner only interested in groups not the individual”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We arrived at Taki's on Friday evening around 8:30 pm, ordered something to drink. The lady behind the bar indicated that the kitchen will be closing at 9 pm. We accepted. As we finished our drink a group of 10 guests walked in and were placed at a table. The time, 9:30 pm. They started ordering from the menu. We stopped and request if the kitchen was open again. The owner's son said the kitchen was already closed but his dad decided to open it again. We asked if we can order some food, but our request was declined. The son said the kitchen is only open for this group, we cannot order as the kitchen closed at 9 pm. How ridiculous is that? Very bad for a business if he is only focusing on groups and not the individuals supporting him throughout the year.

“Thank you for the food poisoning”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Thank you for spoiling a weekend in Franschoek. A fun, casual dinner on Friday evening before going to a wedding on Saturday. We chose Taki's. service terrible. Food very average, and a pathetic wine list.
Woke up to food poisoning on Saturday...thank you Taki's for ruining the weekend for me!

Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

This place wins the award for the worst service in Franchoek the owner actually cursed at us. Not a place I would reccomend to anyone.
