Great Japanese meat place. The beef for the table grill is very good. The raw beef dishes like the tartar and the tripe are amazing.

Had a dinner reservation for Takashi on October 16 which was originally made for 4 people (apparently the minimum number of guests required to book a table) that was subsequently revised down to 3 people and confirmed over the phone by the restaurant. Upon arrival, the lady at the entrance asked us where our 4th guest was - we explained... More

My favourite meal of my trip to NYC this time around. I went with the fois gras wrapped in kobe meatball with chocolate bbq sauce, the steak with uni and the tongue which I could fry myself. The staff were incredibly friendly and the timing of the service was perfect. The meal was far better than what I have experienced... More

We came here because we saw Bourdain's review on the restaurant. We tried Takashi's KFC, tongue, belly, urchin, testicles, dumplings and stomach which we liked in that order. The sake selection is good but not outstanding. Very good service, will definitely come back!

This is a bovine-centric Korean style restaurant. You will find every part of the cow on the menu, and it will all be fresh. To give you an example of what I mean by "every part of the cow"- I had cow aorta. Needless to say, I won't be ordering it again, but I had to try it just to... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Manhattan. They never disappoint. You must go to this place if you haven't already. The food is outrageously good!

My wife and I stopped in because we were seeking an excellent fine-dining meal that would be hard to get where we live (Sedona, AZ). We actually didn't know exactly what to expect because I just searched for Korean restaurants, so we were surprised by their specialty — savoring all parts of the cow. Our appetizers — yooke (an amazingly... More

I love the concept of Takashi. Basically any, literally any, part of a cow (including testicles) are available for your consumption. All sorts of meats/cuts you may or may not have had much experience with can be sought out here. The marinades are great and the flavors are brought out well. Kitchen food is also pretty delicious and unique. The... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
