We’re honestly not sure if the owners of Taam Tov care if anyone comes to their restaurant. You get into this glatt kosher spot in the heart of the Diamond District via a glass door simply labeled “41w,” and it always seems to be locked. (The only reason we got through is because we followed someone in.) You’ll see a big blue-and-gold sign for this place if you happen to look up to the third floor (where the restaurant is located), but there’s no buzzer or street-level sign—only two big security cameras that make you feel like you’re checking into Langley.

Once you finally figure out how to get in, you’ll enjoy some pretty good Uzbek food. Your server will recommend the beef and onion-filled manti with fantastic housemade hot sauce as well as the pilaf with chunks of beef that remind us of smoked lean brisket. We recommend both of them, too. Be sure to also get some warm, soft lepeshka with at least one dip. Note that they have a Chinese food menu available until 5pm (when the chef who cooks these dishes leaves for the day), and be aware that this place is closed for dinner on Friday and all day Saturday for Shabbat.
