Really fresh and unique sushi options. Love the candlelit atmosphere and the bustle of a busy restaurant!
Those foods were so delicious – The foods were so delicious. Everything I've had so far has been wonderful - I love it. I'll go there again.
I tried another restaurant named Misano Japanese. The restaurant is located in one of the area's most pleasant settings and is known for its delightful staff and superb cuisine. Serving for 30 years. I like it. $20 gift certificate for $10 from QuarterOFF. com.
Overall it?s great.
trust me – This place is gold.
I've eaten sushi in Japan, Korea, LA, SF, NY and in many other sushi savvy places and TAKA tops them all.
Price and Friendliness are more than ideal.
But Taste and Flavor take top honors.
Try the tuna tartar appetizer, the yellowtail special roll, the super crunch roll, CNN roll, the tomago, the Unagi, the fried calamari... the fried banana ice cream. There are very few misses, if any.
Best Sushi Ever – This is the best sushi out there. Its not the most trendy place around. But you will know it’s the best for three reasons.
1. The food is great tasting. ( I am a big fan of sushi and have tried almost everything there is in the Atlanta area).
2. The restaurant is always full, no matter what day of the week… which means very fresh ingredients… very important when you eat raw fish.
3. Even though its not trendy, in the parking lot you will see plenty of luxurious cars.
Oh and the service is great!
Most Creative ... Most Gracious ... Most Wonderful Evening – The evening started out with an accident, but the waiter, the hostess, the colleagues, the chef, everyone on staff ... all made it up to me. For years, I have been visiting Taka and enjoying the wonderful culinary delights they offer, but tonight ... their hearts and their service were shining through. The evening was just perfect, even with the opps (wine spill).
I cannot encourage you enough to visit Taka for the culinary experience, the cultural experience, and the experience of superb service!
Phenomenal – I grew up in Los Angeles but have lived in Hawaii, Seattle and am well travelled so am very picky when it comes to good sushi. Taka is as good if not better than any sushi place I have been to in the world. All of the fish is so fresh it melts in your mouth. The rolls are great but I don't fill up on them as the sashimi is so amazing. The toro hand rolls are the exception and i order one every time I go. I recommend sitting at the sushi bar and letting Taka order for you, he will never steer you wrong. The rotating selection of soups are all amazing. The "Healthy Body" vegetable soup is just the right amount of spicy with perfectly layered flavors. Taka, the other sushi chefs and the wait staff are all so friendly and attentive and are happy to make recommendations on food or Saki. I have never found any bad Saki on the extensive list that is organized by distilling style (I personally love any of the unfiltered Sakis). The deserts are also great with the chocolate mousse a particular highlight. The prices are reasonable for high quality sushi and are cheaper than a lot of the so-called high-end sushi places in Buckhead. The name, Taka Sushi & Passion says it all...you can feel Taka's passion for sushi in each delectable bite!
I only wish I didn't live accross the street because my 2-3 times a week sushi habbit is eating into my bank account.
Best sushi in Atlanta – Attention all sushi lovers, Taka is officially the best sushi in Atlanta. By far the freshest, best quality fish and perfectly prepared. Best appetizer is the Hamachi Kama (tuna collar). Only downside is they run out pretty quickly so I would suggest getting there early to ensure you get it. Good selection and variety of rolls but this is definitely more of a real sushi lovers place so be aware that their focus lies more on the sushi and sashimi. Prices are excellent for the quality of fish you are receiving. Limited seating so I suggest reservations. This is now the only place I will go in Atlanta. Nothing else compares.
The Best. – Taka consistently has the freshest fish in Atlanta. I have been going to Taka's for 2 .5 years, almost every month. I have tried other restaurants, but none are as creative nor is the staff as friendly and attentive. Everyone that I have brought to the restaurant has become an immediate fan of the quality of fish and the experience. I would highly recommend coming to Taka's and experiencing The Best!
Best Celebration in Town! – Very high quality food, delicately prepared as well as presented by Chef Taka. Always consistently a memorable dining experience. Very highly recommended!

Best TRUE sushi in Atlanta – Taka is an absolute NOTZEE over the quality of his product! (The website wouldn't let me spell the capitalized word correctly) I spent many years in the upper scale food service industry and understand food quality. On Friday or Saturday nights the staff on the floor is sometimes spread thin. It honestly has little to no impact on my experience given the mastery of Taka's creations. The Uni ravioli is purely devine! Sea urchin wrapped in sea scallop finished with an exotic vinegarete. It's a mystery to how he always has the highest grade tuna available. Toro, chu-toro, o-toro! OH MY! While my wife and I live for the nigiri and sashimi, we can always bring friends who may not be as passionate or versed in sushi. Our guests always find lavish delight in the inspired roll selection and even cooked choices. Bring family, friends, or business clients with confidence. It sure beats the stuffy Buckhead alternatives and shows you have your finger on the pulse of the city. There isn't a sushi joint around Atlanta that compares if quality is concerned. If you shop at Win-Dixie you'll probably be happy with the other places intown. But for those who enjoy Whole Foods, Taka's is the only choice.
