We have been loyal and frequent customers for over 20 years, starting at their first location on Wisconsin Avenue. The food is always fresh and well prepared and presented, and the service is warm and personal. My only criticism is they could use some new...tables and chairs.More

I've lived in Bethesda for over 30 years and LOVE sushi, but had never been to Tako Grill until recently. It just didn't seem right that good sushi could be found in a small strip mall next to the county liquor store. Boy, was I...wrong. The sushi was superb and extremely fresh. The prices were a little high, but well worth it.More

We ate at this restaurant some years ago before they moved to this location and we felt it worth re-visiting especially as the reviews were generally favorable. I ordered the sushi dinner and my wife ordered the sashimi. The Miso soup was a bit too...salty, and the salad was a bit wilted, although the dressing was quite good. The sushi and sashimi were good but not very exceptional. The service was very good. Overall the experience did not live up to our prior experience or our expectations, and we don't expect to return here.More

Great easy going sushi in a hurry. Also dine in. Teriyaki chicken was very good also. I recommend a reservation as it gets busy

Every time we go to Tako the experience is the same--spectacularly good sushi...so fresh and beautifully presented; an array of slightly unusual but authentic Japanese grill items and appetizers and excellent service. We eat sushi several times a month and in every city we travel...to. This is one of the best sushi places we've been to...high-quality, little fanfare, authentic and distinctive food, and absolutely reliable.More

I absolutely loved this restaurant at its Wisconsin Avenue location both before and after its renovation, with its sake bar. It semmed very innovative when it first opened. I went there many dozens of times over the years. I did not like the Hampden Ln...location as much. Where is the grilled tofu? It seemed more like a sushi restaurant now. And there were no oysters when I went. Maybe I missread the menu? Nevertheless, please do try this restaurant and find out for yourselves!More

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.

The absolutely best sushi. You don't have to pay an arm and a leg either. A sushi assortment platter comes with 5 pieces of sushi, a California roll, miso soup, and a salad, all for $14.95 Or, go a la carte and order sushi by...the piece. The sashimi appetizers are enough for a meal, 2 though. Salmon is smooth as silk. Servers are attentive. The "newer" location on Hampden Lane with parking in front makes this restaurant more accessible.More

Went here for dinner after reading many positive reviews and wasn't thrilled. The restaurant was not busy and I was seated right away. They offer both a sushi menu and a menu for other Japanese items. I ordered off the sushi menu and though my...rolls were ok. It is reasonably priced but the service was kind of slow and I had to ask to have my drink refilled multiple times.More
