We went there for lunch after reading this review. The food may have been amazing 3 years ago, but it ain't no more in 2013. The kimchi they served us for banchan was downright disgusting, the bone marrow soup tasted like laundry water and the kimchi chigae gave my Korean companion an upset stomach. Takes this from a guy that has been eating Korean food almost every day for the last 20 years.
Best Korean Restaurant Phoenix 2010 - Restaurant Takamatsu
Our favorite Korean restaurant distinguishes itself in more ways than one. The food's amazing, of course, and the service is downright jovial — we always feel welcome at this homey spot. Just as appealing is the atmosphere, which draws groups of Korean families and hungry businessmen alike. We're hooked on the wonderful smell of sizzling meat here, which gets our stomachs rumbling for juicy kalbi (beef short ribs), bulgogi (thinly sliced marinated beef), buttery pork belly, chicken, and shrimp. Although we're quite familiar with this interactive, cook-it-yourself way of dining, it's always comforting when the helpful staff stops by to keep an eye on things and make sure the cold beer's flowing. Dinner at Takamatsu is a guaranteed way to forget about the world and just enjoy the moment.
