just another great sushi place on the Jersey shore...

We are from Manhattan and have pretty high expectations of restaurants, by and large. A sushi place in little old Asbury Park would seem a little odd, but the entirety of the restaurant scene in AP is a little unexpected. So, great sushi from this place seems maybe not so surprising. They have... read more

The firecracker sushi roll was straight fire!!! But it was delicious! We also had the Matsuri appetizer, spicy tuna, spicy salmon, guacamole and house made nacho chips, a very nice twist of sushi and Mexican. The white saki sangria was refreshing and tasty. We will definitely visit again.

Jaded Manhattanite always looking for something new and found it recently in Asbury Park, NJ. I am tired of all my waiters being struggling actors who constantly check their cell phones while supposedly attending to your needs. The new location of this restaurant coupled with the greeting at the door and the new decor make for a great ambiance. Try... More

Our niece gave us our first gift card to Taka, which is about 20 minutes from our home. We tend to dine very locally but decided to venture down to Asbury. Glad we did! Lovely restaurant, excellent food, good selection of cooked food and sushi etc. Parking can be tricky as you are in the center of town but worth... More

Taka's menu contains many flavorful selections; their sushi and main dishes are of very high quality and are aesthetically presented. The ambiance is enhanced by the professionalism of the wait staff. Prices extremely reasonable

Often have lunch here and occasionally dinner. Sushi always fresh and delicious. The Negamaki is fantastic. In the winter the soup is a large portion of delicious warmth! Sapporo on tap, and a great sake selection. The decor is modern Asian influenced with the great mural brought over from Mattison location. I particularly like the retro communist style hanging with... More

Another gem of Asbury Park. I cannot say enough about this place. One of my favorite dishes TSUKUNE japanese style chicken meatballs and another small plate, chicken on the specials menu which was out of this world. They have a lovely selection of sake, wine and their drinks are amazing. Definitely will visit here again. Note, make a reservation on... More

A group of us enjoyed drinks, appetizers, and all different entrees (no sushi.). Everything was good, kinda Asian-International. Service was friendly and efficient.

The new location is beautiful, the decor the vibe the service all top notch. The sushi rolls are fresh, creative and presented beautifully. All around a great place to hang out at the bar or go into the dining room. Tables in the front near the bar have a great buzz. It used to be good now it is GREAT!
