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

Has hibachi too! Love the moshi as well and good bar. Great chefs, friendly wait staff and always quality shushi. Very close to a movie theatre. Great date night location to visit Taki for a meal and catch a film.

Taki has always been our "go-to" sushi and hibatchi house. The atmosphere is amazing and the food is very good! Get extra fried rice!

It is an average sushi joint that may or may not meet your expectations. Decent service and if in the area worth a try. I have had really good food and really not so good food here. Staff is usually friendly which is helpful.

So, I can only comment on how Taki has been for the last year or so, since that's when I started eating there more frequently. The sushi is some of the best and most fresh tasting in Des Moines, if not the best. I have eaten sushi in Hawaii so I guess I have something to compare it with. My... More
