this place seemed to score well, so we had to give it a try. it wasn't too hard to get reservations, and we scored an early evening visit. no alcohol - fortunately, there is a really good liquor store very close (lush) with great sake. we are both pretty picky about sushi, and eat a lot of it in NYC. this place is actually a really nice broad-ranging sushi restaurant, with very fresh fish and good noodles and other edibles. the service is top rate. we will be back.

I usually dine here at least twice a month & have never had a bad meal! The servers are friendly & knowledgeable & the sushi is great. I almost always order the Orange Kimono & Firecracker rolls. It's still a BYOB, but they recently obtained a liquor license so who knows how long that will last. Always look forward to returning!

We go to Asbury frequently but we only found out about Taka from the Trip Advisor reviews. It lived up to its high ratings. We sampled a selection of different rolls, including the spicy tuna roll and spider roll (with soft shell crab - one of the specials of the day) and everything was excellent. We chose to sit outside, and our only criticism was that the table was a little small to accommodate everything we ordered. Service was attentive and friendly. One of the best restaurants in AP, and the fact that it's BYOB (there is a liquor store 3 minutes away) makes it great value for money too.

Always a wonderful meal here, went this night on a whim. Did not have a reservation, but fortunately the tables outside are a first come first serve basis. Beautiful night for outdoor dining. The sushi, sashimi and rolls here are terrific. There are a lot of different rolls on the menu and they are all great. Taka, is always there and interacting with all the customers and making sure all enjoy their time there.
