Ta-im (the name means delicious in Hebrew) serves up fresh authentic Israeli food in the heart of Tokyo. Run by Dan Zuckerman, a more than 20-year resident of Japan, and his wife Akiko, Ta-im has an extensive menu ranging from vegetarian favorites such as hummus and falafel to schnitzel and lamb dishes. Seasonal specials are available, too. Ta-im prides itself on serving fresh food made from high-quality ingredients, including locally sourced fish and vegetables as well as tahini, spices and wine imported from Israel. You won't find any restaurant in Tokyo that's more cozy and inviting. Expect a heartfelt welcome whether you're dropping in for a small bite to eat, a full course dinner, or a glass of wine.
Six days a week (Ta-im is usually closed on Wednesdays) Dan serves up his freshly prepared specialties at lunch and dinner. Counter seating tops out at 14 places. If possible, call ahead and reserve seats. Our phone number is 03-5424-2990. We serve lunch from 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 6:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. (last order 10:30 p.m.). Note: Ta-im is “usually” closed on Wednesdays. Every now and then, Dan will decide to open the restaurant on a Wednesday. On many Jewish holidays, including Yom Kippur and Pesach (Passover Festival), the restaurant is closed. Please check our calendar for the current schedule.
Ta-im is at the midpoint between Hiroo Station and Ebisu Station. It's about a 10-minute walk either way. From Ebisu Station, take the east exit and walk east. We're located on the small road called Shinbashi Shotengai just a few steps away from the Shibuya River. From Hiroo, take the Tengengibashi Exit and walk south through the Hiroo Shotengai. Turn right at Meiji-dori and walk to the stoplight at Hiroo 1-chome. Turn left and walk about 100m. We're on the right soon after you cross the river. Our address is 1-29-16 Ebisu, Shibuya-ku. Our phone number is 03-5424-2990.
