There’s plenty to love about Taian, a traditional kaiseki restaurant in Osaka: fantastic chargrilled dishes, innovative wine pairings, and a modern-classic interior design which sets the tone for the meal to come. The main secret to this restaurant’s success, however, is the forward-thinking mentality of the chef.
His use of ingredients from all over the world in his modern interpretations of kaiseki classics has won Taian the coveted three star status in the Michelin Guide. A meal here includes a course of amuse bouche bites, moving through a range of seasonal and signature offerings such as black wagyu spare ribs in honey and red wine, and ending with desserts infused with a French touch.
While you watch the chef prepare all of this behind the counter, the manager (the other half of this culinary power couple) will make sure you’re totally comfortable, topping up your glass with your choice of sake or wine.
The three Michelin star rating has brought a wave of fresh interest in Taian, so make sure to reserve early to secure your spot at one of the most consistent and inventive kaiseki restaurants in Hiroshima.
