When my wife and I want some good food at a good value at the last minute, Tawara is our choice. Sushi and sashimi is very good. The service is attentive. The price is reasonable.

The food is delicious, prices are reasonable and friendly staff. I have been eating at Tawara for over 20 years and they are still my go to restaurant when I am craving fresh sushi and... More

We love Tawara! My husband and I love to get dinner here. We even have a loyalty card where we get a discount every 11th visit. The staff is very friendly and suitable for casual dining. This is a BYOB, but there is a liquor store a few doors down if you forget to bring a bottle. My husband says... More

been going for years, and it'll take a bit of time to finally make it through all the different dishes on the menu. From at home Japanese to more familiar fare, never had a disappointment here. I hold Tawara in higher regard than any other Japanese restaurant simply due to the fact that when having sushi/sashimi, my preferences and tastes... More

I would just like one person to say... how was it? Instead they were standing together talking.... We had to ask multiple times for chop sticks and the waitress could not explain to us what something was. I had to google it.

This is a great Japanese option in the area. Food is always great including the sushi. Staff is always nice. Décor is great and it's a fun environment for non-Hibachi Japanese cuisine. I especially love their chicken teriyaki - Best I've had! Yes, Tawara is pricey but it's worth the money. Location is also great - parking is easy, Ramsey... More

I've eaten a lot of sushi in a lot of places. I really appreciated how our server asked if there was any fish/food we couldn't have. I was having the chirashi (sushi over rice) and I can't have the eggs. Usually the restaurant just has less, just removes the egg--this one added more fish to the bowl, plus something I'd... More

The waitress and staff were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The waitress took time to answer our questions about the menu and make recommendations based on our input. We ordered noodle dishes with beef. One was fried noodles where were not all fried. The other was cooked noodles. The beef seemed to be steakumm or something similar. The seawood... More

We came here to celebrate a birthday for a party of six. Ask for a private room in the back which seats 6 comfortably japanese style. This is BYOB and there's a liquor store next door in the strip mall. The wait staff is excellent. Extremely friendly and efficient. Ask for Ilena and you'll have a great experience. The sushi...
