“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I live around the corner from Taka and eat here once a week. I found myself enjoying Taka three times in a row this week and decided it was time to write a review.

From a casual lunch with friends, a quick bite when alone, or a date night, Taka sushi is an excellent option. The fish is always fresh, the extensive selection of sushi rolls are creative, and the sake options are refreshing.

Taka is an intimate space in the heart of Buckhead with welcoming staff and an eclectic crowd.

Enjoy!

“Super Sushi in Buckhead!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Tucked back from the road, Taka Sushi is a small, but stylish, restaurant in the affluent area of Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia.
My husband and I were warmly greeted as soon as we arrived and were immediately seated. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. But let's get to the food! One word can describe this gastronomic experience - outstanding! From the two appetizers of dumplings and short ribs to the pound cake tempura with sea salt and vanilla ice cream for dessert, my husband and I were "yum yumming" with almost every bite. " Our sushi choices were 2 rolls - a Philadelphia roll and a Tempura shrimp roll. We also had Ikura (salmon roe), Amber Jack and Sea Bass.
Important note: many of the patrons were Japanese, which tells you in what kind of regard this restaurant is held. For a Thursday night, the place was hopping. Since it's small, I would suggest reservations.

“Average sushi, friendly chefs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Within walking distance of my hotel. I've had better and less expensive sushi. Not sure I'd eat here again, but the chefs at the sushi bar were very nice.

“BEST SUSHI IN ATLANTA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Taka never disappoints! Every time I have eaten here, the sushi is amazingly fresh and beautifully prepared! LOVE this place! Healthy sized pieces. CNN roll is especially tasty (lots and lots of tuna!).

“Best Sushi In Buckhead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I haven't been here in a long time, probably four years at least, and was elated at how good the food was. Very creative rolls and wonderful sashimi. O.K. wine list and it is small so I would make a reservation just to be safe. Can't wait to go back.
