Just had my salmon roe, sea urchin and special roll and hot sake. I received very good service and fresh meal. Will definitely come back, maybe tomorrow. Stay away from the Thai Angel in the same strip mall. Very rude.

So happy we found this place. I'll be coming here whenever I'm in town. Really fresh, quality fish and an enormous menu.

We went there on a weeknight while we were in the area for meetings. The food was fairly good though the sushi rice didn't stick together very well. But everything was fresh and tasty. The worse part was the noise caused by so many people, sitting so closely together in a very small space.....definitely took away from the experience.

I love sushi and I had the great opportunity to find Takara during a recent business trip. I would never have believed the quality of the food for such a small, strip mall restaurant. Excellent quality of fish, huge selection of rolls, a great value (for a sushi restaurant). I typically return to this restaurant every time I am back... More

the staff is warm and the food is excellent. the suishi rolls are well prepared and fresh. The gyoza is the best and the suishi dinner is a bargain.

Typical Sashimi lunch platter is a lot more interesting than other. I think the value is there and the sashimi is fresh. Been like this for years. Do try.

I stopped in for a quick bite at the sushi bar. I had a miso soup and two raw fish rolls. The restaurnt was quite empty, but it was only 5:30pm. I has a tuna roll with cucumber and an ultimate roll which has tuna, salmon, yellowtail and avacado. I enjoyed it all. Staff was quiet but curteous. I will... More
