Tako Grill is a Japanese restaurant serving classic Japanese dishes and very fresh and exquisite sushi. It started as a partnership between two Japanese chefs opening up a Sushi take out restaurant named Kanpai in 1986 at Glen Echo in Bethesda and continues its business today. Two years later, they opened up a restaurant naming it Tako Grill Japanese Restaurant and at that time, it could only hold a maximum capacity of 50 people. Tako Grill then expanded in 1996 and once more in 2001 adding our Sake Bar which is a great environment and size for larger parties to enjoy the food and atmosphere. In 2015, Tako grill moved to their new location at 4914 Hampden Lane which is at the heart of Bethesda. The new Tako Grill emulates the very original Tako Grill with its intimate atmosphere to enjoy delicious Sushi, Yakitori/Izakaya Menu, Cooked Specialties, and Sake Collection. Tako Grill is a great place for friends, couples, and families to enjoy each other's presence and delight in wonderful traditional Japanese cuisine. Tako Grill is Japanese owned and serves authentic Japanese dishes. We also associate with Japanese Sushi Society and Japan Sushi Federation, bringing in chefs from Japan where they teach the sushi chefs at Tako Grill.

Satisfying sushi!!!

Was invited to eat here with buddies and I'd say I had a great time here. Aside from the usual talks we had, I give my praise to the chef for giving such a wonderful dish on our table. Very fulfilling and delicious! Served fresh as well. Didn't know about it being closed before but I'm glad to... read more

... otherwise, pretty average tho. The sake nigiri was rather small, but at leas the fish was fresh. The tamago nigiri was quite good. However, the rice was a little overcooked. Do not expect anything special. Summarizing, this is the perfect place if you are hungry and want some quick food. I will not comment on the premises, because they... More

This restaurant is moving to another part of Bethesda according to their website. :( Overall I really like their lunch specials. They offer a $12.50 special for 3 sushi rolls (California and two others), miso soup and bean sprout salad (which is now just a self serve salad bar.) The salad bar includes lettuce, tomato, carrots, broccoli, pickled bean sprouts,... More

Seeing that this was the highest rated Sushi restaurant on TripAdvisor, perhaps our expectations were too high. We were greeted and seated immediately upon arrival and then had to wait a little while before we were approached for our drinks/order. The waitress was pleasant and made an excellent suggestion of the FireCracker Sushi (it was VERY good). The sushi rolls... More

Try Tako Grill for very good Japanese fare Having not been there for a few years, I was pleasantly surprised that they've added a salad buffet at lunch. The food was very good, as usual, and the meal very enjoyable. It is located in the Bethesda triangle on Wisconsin. There is parking nearby on the street and in public parking... More

I like to have lunch here. The combination menu items are terrific. Love the seaweed salad and vegetarian options. Friendly, un-intrusive but helpful waitstaff. It's a quiet, mellow place with nice big windows.

We've been several times and we like to eat a lot of appetizers and no main dishes usually. They improved the tables making the old ugly table-mat disappear but should still do something because for some reasons the tables are always a bit sticky... Improve the general look of the rooms wouldn't be a bad idea too. Waiters are kind... More
