A quiet place with excellent service, excellent Japanese food. Where can you find a better atmosphere to be with family or friends. Ample portions, enough to take home for my dinner.

This place is tucked in the corner of a quiet strip mall just off 101, but out of view of it. It's not a place you're going to notice driving by. So it was encouraging to see so many people at 1:30 in the afternoon....Mostly I think the popularity is earned. The salad (basically cole slaw with a creamy dressing) was excellent, the miso soup is brimming with tiny tofu cubes and the vegetables in the tempura seemed fresh. Unfortunately, the tempura was a little too oily/heavy, as was the batter on the sesame chicken. On the plus side, the portions are quite generous. Even one half of the two item lunch special can make a meal, leaving you a half to take home!More

Family first time. Sl ow waitstaff, maybe a short handed night. Miso, sushi, tempura all average. Surprised that the soft shell tempura came as four pieces of sushi. Also very noisy although not full. Hard to have conversations between six people.

We had not been to Taki in along time. The restaurant was very busy with the lunch crowd. Yet they were able to accommodate a party of seven and then my husband and I in a matter of minutes. As we looked over our menu,...we had several employees say they be right with us. Good customer service for such a busy restaurant. We ordered a full size Wakame salad which was plenty for two people. Four people could share this salad. I ordered the Novato Roll, which is fresh salmon, albacore, avocado, cucumber, green onion and tobiko. Fish was very fresh and the roll was good for $9.70. We also had the Red Caterpillar Roll, which is unagi, cucumber and avocado with Red Tuna on top. Very good for $15.00. And we also had the Double Decker Roll, which is spicy tuna roll with spicy hamachi on top. Very good for $14.00. They have a good menu selection at reasonable prices and good service. We will definitely be back.More

I ordered the chicken teriyaki. The chicken had grill marks on it and the cut had to be from a package. The sauce was from a package. The big pile of cabbage with mayo left a lot to desire. The soup had tofu in it....I noticed almost everybody was eating sushi after I ordered the chicken. I thought this was the worst Japanese restaurant I have tried in 48 states. I would suggest sushi and maybe your luck will be better.More
