The Most Exciting Restaurants of 2018

Takiya – Tokyo

Tokyo is full of amazing restaurants tucked into tiny little back alleys, and Takiya is no different. Located behind a nondescript door in Roppongi, it only serves 14 patrons at a time.

Opened by chef Kasamoto in 2015, Takiya is a tempura restaurant, focused mainly on seafood.

Unlike many traditional tempura restaurants in Tokyo, Takiya has an amazing wine list, and serves up amazing desserts in addition to their incredible seafood offerings.
