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.

“It is consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

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 and price is ok.

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.

“Excellent Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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.

“thought it was a cheap eatery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

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 simple, but the service was fast. The prices imo are above average for such an unpretentious place. I had a sushi and assorted tempura. They were delicious. If you want meat though, it was around 20 USD per portion. The food was delicious, but it did not inspire me for a second visit.
