All I can say is WOW! The food and decor is just amazing especially the bar area - the overhead lighting looks like large bubbles and there is plenty of seating with chairs that have backs to them. There is nothing worse then going to a bar to eat with stools that have "no" backs to them - we usually... More

First time at Taka since they moved. The new space is amazing! The Host had an attitude but the gentleman who sat us and another one at the hostess desk were super nice. Waitress also really nice. The food as always was outstanding. We sometimes drive to Asbury just for dinner here... Make a reservation!

We love Taka, the food and service is excellent. You must make reservations well for weekends in advance since this is a very popular place. The ambiance is really nice, it gets loud at times but it's worth the visit. Best sushi around. The entrees are also very good. You won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for a great food experience go to Taka's. The sushi is fresh and imaginative. The atmosphere takes you away and is up scale and modern, The servers are all well informed helpful and friendly. Summer or winter I love going to Taka's.

Hip, modern and busy sushi Japanese place. Food is pretty good, the decor is great and the service is wonderful. We felt welcomed right from the start. We ordered mainly sushi and we cleaned our plates! Will definitely come back again.

The sushi was fresh and well present and the service was fine. The atmosphere inspired friendships- we shared some food and stories with the customers at the tables to left and to the right.

Who would expect eating short ribs and meatloaf, which were outrageous, at a high end Japanese restaurant. Sushi appy was terrific. Atmosphere is very lively maybe a little loud. One of the best in AP!!
