Green Dragon Brunch

A Brunch to benefit the Asbury Park St. Patrick's Day Parade. A special menu for the benefit. Breakfast was very good. Have not eaten there on a regular day but I hear they are as good on any given day as they were today for the special brunch

The sushi is fresh, the staff wonderful and the prices reasonable. Another great addition to the ever burgeoning restaurant and bar scene in Asbury. great place for a meet up with... More

Wonderful sushi experience. My husband and I were looking for a good, local sushi place and we went here with another couple one night. Very good food -- the sushi is different than the average place but their rolls are fantastic. Comfortable and unique atmosphere, good service, reasonable pricing. Try some of the unheard of sushi rolls, you won't be... More

I love the food, which feels more authentic and eclectic than your average sushi place around this part of the state. Nice atmosphere and good service add to the experience. Wish they had more on the wine list, but that's my only negative.

Had the good fortune of visiting Taka on a recent Friday night for dinner. My girlfriend and I arrived at this restaurant in Asbury Park, NJ without a reservation and upon entering, I had my doubts. The hostess station greet us as we walked in, which was adjacent to a noticeable cheap looking coat rack, however, the hostess was less... More

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
