We went to Taka to celebrate my son's birthday. We had a 6:30 reservation on a Saturday night and the restaurant was already full. The bar area is spacious with a great vibe. We were seated in a booth which had plenty of room for 4. I ordered the Lychee Lovers cocktail which was delicious. The sushi presentation is gorgeous.... More

I have been going to Taka for years. His restaurant and staff are always a pleasure. The sushi is always perfectly fresh and their roles are amazing.

Aside from top notch Sushi, the menu includes , curry & other interesting rolls. Have been here about 10 times in 2015 it's a regular stop of mine when I want to dress up a... More

Stumbled upon Taka on a Sunday evening walk and have been back weekly since then! Love the sushi and the shrimp curry. And don't forget the desserts! Wash it down with some innovative cocktails. The best.

Is my favorite place anywhere for sushi. Love love love the sangria. The noodle bowl soup? Yum! I can go on and on. The place is beautiful too. They did an awesome job with the place. Great move on their part taking over this space. Just go.

the only reason I didn't give this restaurant a terrible rating was we were all able to leave without getting sick.we were a party of 14, with 1 overwhelmed server.the sushi was room temperature, the entrees were cold,or undercooked. service was horrendous.
