Good for what it is

If you need a Japanese fix while in Mendocino, try Taka. Keep in mind this is not a fancy sushi place, and you will not get really fancy high-end sushi here. However, if you are looking for a semi inexpensive lunch, Taka has options. We get the Miso soup, and an appetizer. Like the gyoza, and... read more

We got the Bento Box and a shrimp tempura. The Bento Box was heavy on vegetable tempura that was a bit too greasy. The one highlight was a monkfish liver sushi. It may be an acquired taste, but it is fabulous.

If you're not a big fan of overpriced fancy sushi places and always on the hunt for a good Japanese food at a reasonable price then I would suggest you try Taka's. We ordered a Teriyaki chicken bento box and salmon bowl for lunch. The portions are small and without the customary soup and salad (additional charge) but the food... More

A variety of Japanese food including udon, tonkatsu, katsu don buri, sushi, sushi rolls and sashimi. Snow crab can be substituted for imitation crab for an additional charge in sushi rolls. (Not recommended because of the small amount of snow crab can barely be tasted or seen.) Fish and other ingredients were fresh. Service was a bit slow but friendly.... More

We had a very nice evening here. The food was very good as was the service. Recommend the seaweed salad, caterpillar roll, California roll, buckwheat pan fried udon with veggies, and the veg gyozas.

At first you think this is an authentic style Japanese restaurant. The decor is bright and cheery with a sushi bar and Japanese artwork. Ordered a Bento box, and the food looked good. Looks can be deceiving, it was like someone followed the photos to the letter to get it to look Japanese, but the taste was bland and tasteless.... More

Although we did not try the sushi dishes, the steamed vegetables and noodle options were marginal at best. The vegetable pan fried dumplings were decent.

Good service with excellent sushi and decent prices. The rooms are noisy but there is a nice area in one room that has a small waterfall and big plants. Staff were very knowledgeable about food allergies and even had GF (gluten free) soy sauce.

The restaurant was closed when I approached it, but saw some people inside, so I stuck my head in the door and asked if they were closed. The nice lady answered yes, but come on inside and she would serve us. Wow. I had the Lunch Box with Cod cooked in Uni (Sea Urchin) sauce. It cam with tempura (cooked... More
