A sad tale of decline for this establishment. we have frequented this place at least 3 to 4 times a year and were always surprised and elated in the whole experience. Ever since the long time manager left, the place has quickly gone downhill. Service...is terrible, the food mediocre and the whole Takashi experience lost for ever. What a shame.More

I don’t disappoint at all! Uni and niku are so juicy. Then I ordered shio-tan and galbi and choosed seasoned them with salt. They are so gooood! I probably like shio-tan or tongue a little bit more. I will definitely go back to try other...plates.More

Great Japanese experience. This yakiniku is an authentic restaurant, run by Japanese for Japanese (and non) and service simply amazing stuff. Great! You cannot make a reservation for "small" parties, so drop by, sign up for the waiting list and have a beer in one...of the neighbouring bars until they call you (its probably going to last much less than they initially say).More

Food was great, really enjoyed the beef belly, the tartar and the grapefruit soju! The ice cream dessert was really really good. Reece did a great job giving recommendations and leading the party! Can’t recommend this place enough.

Very cosy restaurant with very good service. Dishes are beef which are well presented before grilling it on an almost smokeless grill.Service staff recommended very cuts including the beef heart and wagyu tartare with a raw quail's egg. Salads and rice balls wrapped in seaweed...complement a mainly meat dinner.More

This is the first time in my life that I have slurpped up all the ramen broth. Takashi makes wonderful beef ramen and the broth is absolutely delicious. I also loved the crispy intestines and the beef belly. This is a must try! Please note...that they only serve ramen on Friday and Saturday midnight and you need to make a reservation.More

This must be the best Japanese / Korean BBQ anywhere. Had the raw liver namagimo; 3 types of cow stomach; lung and heart; etc. Sizzling fresh cooked meats with expert assistance from the servers as to how long to cook. NIce beer and sake. The...place is cosy but very inviting and friendly. About US$350 for four.More

I don't remember remarked gluten free dishes that way. I'd rather call because the menu is pretty short (delicious, though)
