The place doesn't have the fanciest dining room. It's clean and almost cafeteria-like. However, it seems that the magic is all in the kitchen because the food is excellent. The prices are decent for a saint john sushi restaurant, and the service is good. There is a pretty big selection and it seems fairly authentic.

They do catering and take-out, so if the atmosphere puts you off, I'd definitely take advantage of the menu and eat at home or picnic in the nearby King's Square.

It is always a wonderful experience coming to Ta-Ke. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, and great food! It has a good selection of dishes that you can order from. The fish is always so fresh and delicious and the miso soup is always nice and warm.

The lunch special is awesome. Great value- one 8 pc roll, 4 pc sashimi, jap chae, veggie tempura and soup for less than 12$.

It was good. A decent sushi place for Saint John.

My boyfriend and I shared the Bulgogi and also a plate of 10 sushi and 8 maki. We were given miso soup, and also fruit at the end of the meal, which was unexpected, but also routine from the great Japanese restaurants I have ever been too. The sushi was good, the fish was cold (which was okay for me), but had no wasabi under the fish (which I prefer, more authentic). I was most impressed by the maki rolls. I was expected a general California roll to come with it, but instead it was an amazing spicy mind of roll, which lots of cruchy bits on bit. The bulgogi was much different than I was used to. There was not a lot of sauce, and there were more vegetables. I probably would not order it again (I normally love love Bulgogi, but other people may prefer it this way, and it was probably a lot healthier). Our meal came to 37$ which was great.

BUT, BE AWARE. No alcohol, and no desert. I was truly looking forward to a beer and green tea ice cream. That was very disappointing.

1/2 of restaurant is a against the wall (so half get to sit along the booth). We reserved the only window seat. I would recommend that seat, it was nice and quite.

The male waiter we had was excellent, and very nice.
