Sterne Restaurant wie man es sich wünscht.

Taku means the home of hospitality. This meaning is completely relevant in the Asian restaurant Taku in the Excelsior Hotel in Köln.

Here you can experience palate teasers from the kitchen's different Far East cookery and high end culture. Head chef Nicolas Auersperg cooks his dishes with authenticity and creativity and takes his ideas from purist Japanese, hearty Chinese or well rounded Thai and Vietnamese cuisine.

The Taku offers two solutions for business people: the Office-Box in two sizes, that you can either collect yourself, or have it brought to your work desk, or the weekly changing business lunch which can be eaten in the restaurant itself.

For a stay full of enjoyment, the modest service team welcomes guests in the timeless elegance of the Taku on the cathedral square. Here you can indulge in speciality dishes taken from fine Asian cuisine, served with an appropriate sake, or a wine to accompany the meal.

  • ((((( 8 January 2018 by Restaurantbesucher from Köln

    Ein schickes Restaurant mit stylischem, aber gemütlichem Ambiente. Edle Deko. Sehr angenehm, dass die Tische nicht so eng stehen, so kann man sich in Ruhe unterhalten und fühlt sich nicht eingeengt. Das Essen war sehr lecker, Mittags ist besonders die Lunchbox zu empfehlen. Freundlicher Service.

    Service war sehr gut. Das Essen war gut, aber nichts außergewöhnliches, daher war das Preis/Qualitätserlebnis leider etwas enttäuschend. Für ein Restaurant mit einem Stern erwartet man deutlich mehr. Wir hatten hier deutlich mehr erwartet.

    Insgesamt Alles sehr stimmig.

    Von den hervorragenden Speisen abgesehen, fällt hier das gut geschulte, sehr aufmerksame aber nie aufdringliche Personal auf. Mittlerweile leider eine Rarität an anderen Orten.

    Ein wunderbar feines kleines Restaurant mit kreativ gestalteten, sehr feinem Essen.
