“The highest quality Sushi in NJ, by far”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Just perfect. Amazing quality, especially taking the prices into account. You can find same quality or maybe higher in Manhattan, but pay double or more. Service is very friendly. The owners are always around.

“Authentic sushi in New Jersey.”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I was visiting on business and was craving sushi. The reviews on Trip Advisor sounded like this was a good place. Japanese owned and operated, fresh fish, cosy atmosphere. It was all true.

I did see a lot of "American Rolls" on the menu, but I stayed away from them, opting instead for mountain potato and tuna, monk fish liver (ankimo), uni, white tuna and hirami. They were all very fresh and very good.

You should note that this restaurant, like many others in NJ, is BYOB because of the high cost of liquor licenses. The green tea is also good.

“Still the best !”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We are frequent customers in Takuma, Madison NJ, and we have not been disappointing during any of our visit there by the wonderful and original Japanese food that they serve.
The owner/Chef is highly creative (try the various makis !) and the fish always is extra fresh. Even if the service sometimes is approximate and the room decors could be improved, the personal welcome is warm. Congrats.

“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

A friend and student at nearby Drew University introduced us to this restaurant. Nice variety on the menu. Very good service. Lunch was well-served and nicely prepared. Portions were more than enough - especially for lunch! Try it!
