WOW!!! Amazing! Educational! YUMMMEEEE!

We were headed to Umi and called to make a reservation - the wait was 1.5 hours so the driver suggested Taka - well what serendipity - cool little place great vibe and we sat at the sushi bar. The Saba was perfect - great FLAVA and fresh! They had a tuna trio - fatty, not too fatty and lean... read more

Went there for lunch. Not too many people. Parking was impossible. The bigger concern was the temperature of the fish on the rolls: it was warm... :-( Not really impressed.

RHad the bento box for lunch. It was last night's leftovers including reheated salmon and mashed potatoes. This is not Japanese food. Service was rushed. Don't go here if you know how good Japanese food should be.

This was just an average restaurant, but fairly expensive. Nonetheless, it was a good thing we had a reservation since this small place was almost full. The fish seemed fresh but the sushi is just average, nothing special to justify the expense.

Fresh fish, great service, Taka (the owner) is always there. Not too big, not too small and in convenient Buckhead location. Have been a customer since Soto left town for NY in early 2000's. Other sushi/Japanese competition is too pricy and too trendy or simply not quality

Whether it's the ICBM or the Copacabano Roll, Taka rocked it last night. The Black Cod was darn near perfect, and the spicy tuna roll was too. They have an excellent wine selection, the Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay couldn't have been better! This place reminded me of Nobu at Caesars Palace! Excellent experience!

I've been wanting to try Taka for a while. Went last night and was pretty underwhelmed. Service was friendly and efficient. Food just ok. I had the popcorn okra which was tempura okra. This was good a nice touch for vegetarians - something different. I then had the fried pork which was little better than a frozen fried chicken patty.... More

We went to Taka for a late lunch. Our bad was that we arrived 15 minutes before what was the end of their lunch service. The waitress that seated us was very pleasant, but within a couple of minutes of being seated, another waitress came to the table and told us we had to order right then, because they were... More

Recently visited again. This time we ventured from the sushi menu. We ordered some "appetizers," which actually came after our sushi meal...so who knows. The sushi was still top notch, but the appetizers where fried, glutenous messes of shrimp, crab like stuff and mayonnaise. Stick with the sushi. And it is not cheap.
