I give this place 4*, because their sushi is good and that is very important. However, I wish that the tables were cleaner (sticky tables twice), and the prices more reasonable.

I'm not all that into sushi, if I'm being honest. However, I know what tastes good and Tako Grill's sushi is the best tasting fish in Bethesda. No doubt about it. I've been dragged to many a sushi place by my friends and this place...More

We asked for the chef selection and it was a good guess. Fresh fish and fine preparing. It was delicious. This is the best sushi in Bethesda!

I ate here on a Saturday evening with my friend who is an expert in Japanese food. Got seated right away. Excellent choices, reasonable prices, and good taste. I had the soft shell crab dinner.

Still the same high quality as in their old location! Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Perhaps the best value for sushi and sashimi in the area.

This used to be my favorite place for sushi at its previous location on Wisconsin Avenue. I went to the Hampden Lane location for the first time and was actually a bit disappointed. The miso soup was watery, the salad dressing appeared to be prefab,...More

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. In 2015, Tako grill moved to their new location at 4914 Hampden Lane which is at the heart of Bethesda. The new Tako Grill emulates the very original Tako Grill with its intimate atmosphere to enjoy delicious Sushi, Yakitori/Izakaya Menu, Cooked Specialties, and Sake Collection. Tako Grill is a great place for friends, couples, 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.
