"I love the design and murals, and they have an excellent and very knowledgeable staff. I go here for the grilled beef, and I love the flash-broiled tendon salad and sesame leaves."

"I love Takashi even though I'm not much of an offal guy. They use super fresh vegetables and the joint has a killer vibe, so I love going there and watching my friends eat the gnarly stuff while I fill up on kimchi and vegetable sides. They also have this soft serve vanilla ice cream (the only dessert on their menu) that is flat-out killer. It's perfect, really. I skip the gold leaf topping (gold leaf on food is not cool) and get it with kinako (roasted soybean flour). Awesome."
