At Takanami, our love for our food is deeply embedded in that belief.
For us, creating a restaurant is much more than finding a location, hiring a chef, and opening the doors. It is a labor of love and an opportunity to share our passion for good food and great hospitality. We specialize in quality sushi, teppanyaki, and Asian-infused entrees utilizing both seasonal local ingredients as well as those from all over the world. Although Takanami holds true to tradition, our food selections and special menu items are the most unique of all other Asian-style restaurants in New York or even California. We also promise to give you daily features that will bring new and exciting taste experiences to your palate.
Takanami is located in the heart of downtown Iowa City, just blocks away from the historic Old Capitol and the University of Iowa. Takanami is the perfect place to enjoy a dinner with family and friends, a business lunch, or to celebrate a special ocassion. We take pride in using the freshest ingredients and providing you a truly one of a kind experience. Takanami offers private dinning for smaller groups as well as the theatrical and interactive teppanyaki tables for larger events.
