I don't remember what I last ordered but it was very good, I have yet to be disappointed with Taka. It is a little on the expensive side but I think it's worth it. Can't wait to go back!

We wanted to have sushi, but ended up having the house specialties: Short Ribs and Meatloaf. So awesome. Dumplings were great. So was the Asian Pear Salad. Owner was very sweet. He talks to all of the dining guests and makes them feel welcome. The sushi looked great at the other tables. I will definitely return during my next visit... More

one of my favorites..Hybrid Shushi and americanized Japanese. Takes the best of both!The Red Dragon app is terrific. I can't get by it. Slightly disappointed by the special fish baked in paper .. (a little light in the flavor department) A place that I don't get to often enough! addition of liquor simplifies the equation but adds to cast. Still... More

As part of our holiday vacation my family visited Taka . . . although all are not sushi-afficionados, there was something excellent for even palate,

The house salad is delicious. Very fresh Sushi. This place has the best Miso Soup ever! You will need reservations. And it is no longer a BYOB.

Food was great. We were seated at the community table. The noise level was excessive. Otherwise, great

This is a place that has reasonable food at a snooty price with desires to be better than they are. I was not impressed with the service, although the atmosphere is lovely. I really loved the art, but sadly, you can't eat it. Save your money and order in from Sultan's Wok. Or find somewhere worth spending the money.

I ate a Saturday night sushi dinner at Taka in Asbury Park. Everything was very good, the sushi rolls were all excellent. Service was great. Menu is a wide variety of sushi and Japanese entrees. Maki rolls were very generous. Bar was limited to beer (Sapphoro), white & red wine. Desserts were also very good - I had the green... More
