Description: 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. Now Tako Grill is a great place for friends 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.

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

I have been coming to Tako Grill for a long time, and I love it! The food is delicious, and the service is absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend this place for Japanese food if you are in the area.

Good food, high quality sushi, very reasonably priced. Best sushi in Bethesda. The rest of the menu is also excellent - my wife loves their salmon, and the kids like the teriyaki chicken and the edamame.

The place is right next to Bethesda court hotel. From the outside it looked like a rather tarnished establishment. I went in just because the place looked packed and I saw someone eating sushi (I thought it was a Mexican place). It serves sushi, tempura, noodles etc. The place was rather packed on a Friday evening. The setting is very... More

Appetizer portions were extremely small based on price. Waitress had the personality and enthusiasm of someone not wanting to be at work. She was not familiar with the menu and was unable to describe or recommend items. The only options I could find for vegetarians would be vegetable tempura and a few sushi options. Pretty sure the udon I ordered... More
