“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Don't be swayed by the look of the restaurant, it is all about the food, and it's great. It is rare to find a good value with good food, but Takara is that. The only downside is the lack of seating (one table).

“Great for take out sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Always filling and worth the price. I wouldn't eat in because the place is very tiny. The owners are friendly too.

“Great sushi spot tucked in Newton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

You'd never expect that one of the better sushi spots in the greater Boston area is tucked near the Newton Highlands T Stop - but it is!

If you're ordering from Takara, you should expect a bit of a wait and order early, even for lunch.

All of their sushi is well done - for lunch, two rolls is enough to fill you up and be happy - especially if they are the spicy tuna and caterpillar maki rolls (always favorites on our team). That said, there's lots of other great options.

“A real find in Newton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

I have never had a bad meal here. The sushi is fresh and there are lots of options. Run but a husband and wife who are so polite and accommodating to lots of questions about what is on the menu. Their Sushi Regular meal is a staple for me.

“Consistent excellent sushi every Friday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

My co-workers and I love to order takeout from Takara almost every Friday. I vary my order items but usually go with the classic caterpillar maki and the crispy spicy tuna maki. They are made by a mom and pop owners who strive for consistency and excellence for every single item. I have been eating here since April 2011 and have never been disappointed. There is limited seating (just for one to two people) so takeout is recommended.
