“It was just OK”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Decor is great..but the food is only so-so. And this place is not cheap...We usually love Sushi but here we were disappointed with the quality (and with the service)
Not good price/performance

“Meh.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Went once, will never go again. My food was utterly tasteless, and not fresh. Perhaps just an "off" night?

“We Keep Going Back! Not just for sushi lovers!!!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Not much else to say. Everything we have had has been amazing!

We recently went with a large group of people that included non sushi eaters. They have a meatloaf, vegan options, chicken...Taka really prepares amazing food and has something for everyone.

MAKE RESERVATIONS! Otherwise wait could be 1 hour or more.

“The short ribs melt in your mouth.”
Reviewed June 7, 2012 via mobile

I went to Taka while visiting Ocean Grove. I'm not much for sushi but the menu offers selections for those not interested in sushi. The short ribs were delicious and the portion was huge.
A friend of mine ordered the panko chicken which I tried. It was crispy, moist, and the Asian barbeque sauce for dipping was divine.
The server was knowledgable about the menu and suggested a great appetizer special.
