Midwest sushi at its best

Iowa and sushi don't necessarily belong in the same sentence. During a recent training at Camp Dodge, myself and other students visited Taki Japanese Steakhouse on a recommendation. Considering the options between Johnston and Urbandale suburbs, I would highly recommend a visit. Dining options... read more

The hibachi grill area only holds 4 hibachi areas for 64 total people in the hibachi area. The atmosphere feels a bit cozier because of it. The chef prepares the food on the hibachi grill in front of you while spinning kitchen tools, tossing eggs around, flipping veggies to customers, and generally putting on a fun show. The food is...

Very personable staff, and fabulous sushi! Couldn't ask for better quality sushi in the middle of the country. The chefs prepare the sushi right in front of you and are always suggesting great dishes. They also have the grills for the japanese steakhouse experience. We always find that fun, and the experience never disappoints.

We love Teppanyaki, and this is one of the best we've had! For sure, the best in Des Moines. The teppan chefs love what they do and it shows in their skill and flair for entertaining. The food is always cooked to perfection right in front of you. They always have different tricks and techniques to make each experience special... More

This is one of our favorite types of food. Went here after seeing received best award for many years in a row. Nothing special. Our chef was average. Not many "tricks" and didn't even do the usual flip the food in the mouth. We had 6 11-year olds with us and no effort to make it fun for them. He... More

We visited Taki restaurant for a birthday dinner. We were seated right at our reservation time. The chef we had was great and was very considerate of the children at the table, cooking extra scrambled eggs and items when he noticed what the did/did not like. The food was pretty good and I would recommend to a friend. You are... More

We tried the miso soup and were a little disappointed. My husband got the ultimate fish sushi roll and it was very good. The veggie tempura was a very large portion but the veggies inside weren't cooked enough and a little raw tasting. They do have a nice wine selection and we had a nice waitress.

The food is delicious and consistent. If you order sushi, they offer you free soup and salad. This is top five sushi restaurants in Des Metro area.

It was a friend's birthday and our first sushi experience. The server was helpful and suggestive when we asked. We went with the dragon roll, super cucumber, tropical tuna and the chef special spring roll. All were very different but good. If the server hadn't walked us through the menu and the process it may not have been as enjoyable.... More
