I have been there numerous times and have never had a bad meal. Th mussels in the green tea sauce when they have them are delicious.. Sushi is always fresh. Other things on the menu have been great too.. It is a BYOB which i think is great.. The green tea cheese cake is a must try..

We recently dined at Taka for the first time. We were there with a couple we know who lives in Asbury Park and frequents this restaurant a lot. We liked the decor of the restaurant. I thought it was interestingly decorated with great restraint. Everything we had was decently prepared and tasted good. I think this would be a great... More

We showed up at Taka, five friends without a reservation, first mistake on a Saturday at 6 pm. So...the only table available was outside. Ok...the waitress rearranged the table for us..but we were not thrilled with the spot...ok, but the owner needs to invest in new outdoor furniture. The chairs were worn, uncomfortable and flimsy. For such a great interior... More

I was really looking forward to trying Taka, and I was a bit disappointed the first time around. The shumai was great and homemade. The service was ok. The sushi rolls were average. I have had better. While it didn't live up to the hype, the entrees look interesting, so I will be back to sample them.

This restaurant has a cool miami type vibe. Very chic atmosphere, and the best sushi around. They sushi is always super fresh, and they are very accommodating to my gluten free restrictions. Used to be byo, but now even better with full bar. Try it!!!!

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
