“Great Bento Boxes for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

While Takara’s décor won’t wow you (looks kinda tacky 80s style) and they don’t have the most creative sushi rolls, you can count on them to serve solid favorites every time. Lunch time is buzzing and you will get a great deal from their bento boxes, which include both sushi rolls and other cooked foods. The butterfly roll and the spicy tuna are our favorites.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

For those that like Sushi and Sashimi my wife and I highly recommend this restaurant. Located downtown Montreal the restaurant is cosy and the Sushi Chef and staff aim to please . We live in the area with Sushi / Sashimi being a favourite meal for us for the last 15 years . We have gone to any number of Sushi restaurants over that time period but for the last 5 years or so this has been our monthly treat. While not inexpensive for Dinner , we get great overall value.

“Best quality/price ratio for a Japanese resto in Montreal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

It's not the best sushi in Montreal for sure but paying 14$ for a Bento lunch Box including a Miso soup and green tea is a good deal. The food is fresh, I go there often with clients for a business lunch and its very calm place. There are some specialised sushi plates (16$ and above) and they're very good! I've tried several desserts there but none of them convinced me to try a second time.

“Wow - what a lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

We were killing time in downtown Montreal and I was overwhelmed with a desire for some good sushi. We stumbled upon Takara Restaurant quite by accident. It is on the second floor of a large mall. We were a group of 7, so one person did the ordering. Our meal took a little longer than I would have expected to arrive, but when it did, I understood why. It was a creative masterpiece, and so, so tasty. Service staff was very friendly. Place was clean and well laid out. I would recommend this place for really good Japanese food in Montreal.
