“Fresh, tasty, consistently good sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is a regular eating venue for our family. It is a small but attractive restaurant hidden in the back of a semi-strip shopping center. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the daily specials can be amazing. The food is expensive, as it should be, and the portions are not large, but we have never had a disappointing meal here.

“Excellent Japanese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This small restaurant was very near to our hotel and we were delighted that my niece took us there to eat. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. I understand it is a very popular place for locals. All of the sushi was fresh and tasty and the prices were very reasonable.

“Excellent sushi option in ATL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

My family and I eat sushi quite a bit and find this to be by far the best sushi option in Atlanta.

Atmosphere - Service is very receptive and we like the small dining room area. Feels like some of the small sushi joints I have been to in NYC and Tokyo.

Extremely fresh sashimi with creative rolls. We especially like the Taka Daily Appetizer special where you get 4 types of interesting sashimi with creative sauces, etc. My wife often gets rolls and I have enjoyed both the chirashi and the chef's special/omakase. In addition to sushi, they have some common Japanese appetizers that we have found tasty.

So in short, if you want good sushi, come here realizing the prices are high since you are getting a quality meal versus so many of the other marginal sushi places around.

“Fresh, fresh, fresh authentic sushi with unique daily specials...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Nestled on a side street in Buckhead, this is a sushi oasis in the landlocked southeast USA.

I adore sushi and was thrilled with the sashimi and sake selections.

The staff was knowledgable, friendly and efficient.

The atmosphere is small, simple and neat. The patio does not have a city view but the outdoor dining experience is more than good enough.

“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!
