Takumi-Tei is finally reopening at EPCOT, but would you choose to dine here after seeing their menu price? Take a look.
After being closed since March 2020, Takumi-Tei finally reopens today, November 23, 2022! Takumi-Tei is Japanese meaning “house of the artisan”.
The restaurant’s description from Disney reads as follows: “Meaning “House of the Artisan” in Japanese, Takumi-Tei features 5 beautiful rooms, each inspired by a natural element – water, wood, earth, stone or washi paper. Every area features beautiful, handcrafted works of art honoring the element that brought it to life.”
At this time, the restaurant is not taking reservations, but walk-ins are welcome.
At Takumi-Tei, the beauty of Japan is also in its cuisine. Choose from our a la carte or multicourse tasting menus offering creatively prepared, Japanese-inspired dishes like braised wagyu beef, roasted duck, maki sushi and yuzu cheesecake. Guests may also enjoy signature cocktails, premium sake, wine and craft beer.
