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.

    Das Restaurant überrascht mit einer eleganten Interpretation von dem was wir als Sushi verstehen.

    Ich bin nur Hobby Genießer und kein Fachexperte in dieser Kategorie von Küche, aber wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Personal war sehr aufmerksam und die Atmosphäre angenehm. Das Menü hat uns sehr beeindruckt und wir waren somit garantiert nicht das letzte Mal dort.
