SO TASTY! – I took other reviewers' suggestions. Got the zig zag hand roll, BBC roll, and Mike's roll. Also got Toro (fatty tuna) and Shake/Sake (salmon). ALL FANTASTIC. Although I am not a big fan of spiciness, Mike's roll was extremely good! The fish is fresh and the Toro was amazing, it literally MELTED in my mouth (and that's a good thing). The waitresses are all women and flirt often, so if you're a guy, you'll probably enjoy that. Hahaha. Will definitely keep going back! Not much seating, so make reservations. We did, but there were seats left still...

This Place Rocks! – I live around the corner from Taka's and it is a good thing I do, because I would drive hours to eat there. I crave Taka's often because it is so good. The Lou's Roll is heaven, and the zig zag hand rolls are the best I have ever had. Ask the sushi chef to make you something special and you will never be disappointed.

BEST SUSHI IN SACRAMENTO!! – I've ben to sushi places all over California, but truly, none of them compares to Taka's Sushi. The ingredients are fresh, the portions are large, the food is relatively inexpensive, and the chefs are really wonderful! Their hand rolls are just SO mouth-wateringly delicious, but then, so are their other rolls. Every time a friend drops by for a visit, we have to go to Taka's. Each and every time, they leave impressed and extremely full. The ambiance is warm and inviting, and it's a great place to get together with a bunch of friends. I love Taka's Sushi!

Oh So Yummy! – I love how Taka's has been remodeled over the holidays. It's still small and cozy, but a little more room for seating. The place looks great! The sushi is always fresh and very good. You HAVE to try the City Roll, we always order seconds cause it's soooo good. The service is friendly, but on bad days they can be a little forgetful. The Better Than Sex can be hotter/spicier on some days than others. I love the variety of rolls, and their Green Tea ice cream is top notch!

Holy mackerel! – Just a small neighborhood kind of place, but has some wonderful sushi specials, including Aji (Spanish Mackerel), Sakura (King Mackerel), and Uni (Sea Urchin). For main course I had grilled Saba Shoiaki (Japanese Mackerel), which was just a bit dry, did not have that oily fresh sea test I'm used to. Vegetable side dishes were quite good, including Gomae (steamed asparagus & spinach in sesame sauce). Miso soup was not quite as flavorful as elsewhere, but otherwise everything was fine. Restaurant itself is kind of small, with only about 15 tables, however the attentive service by beautiful young waitresses more than makes up for any lack of ambience.

Best Sushi... no joke! – Taka's is a rare jem you find in a deep dark dingy hole. It sparkles in the dimmest of lights and radiates yumminess. I can safely say this because I go there at least once a week and I have NEVER been disappointed.

The one thing I would suggest is to sit at the sushi bar and tell the chef to make you something special. Lou (ask them what their names are) is a great guy and an even better sushi chef. He whips up some delectable dishes and his personality sparkles to match. The rest of the guys at the sushi bar are great too. Check out Taka's... you won't be disappointed. (Try out the City Roll, BBQ Albacore, and the Lomi Salmon. My mouth is salivatating already.) Have fun there!

Just GO! – Taka's... what can I say? It's the BEST. I know many of you have read other reviews stating other restaurants are the best but I make no mistake in saying Taka's makes the best sushi in Sacramento. The standard menu is good, but when you order the specials, I guarantee it's going to be fantastic. The fish is fresh fresh fresh, and I always find something new to try... if I can tear myself away from the BBQ Albacore and the City Roll. YUM! So, just go! and try it out and see for yourself! Oh and Taka's DELIVERS to midtown residents if it's rainy and you don't want to leave your house.

The World's BEST SUSHI – I totally Love Taka's Sushi. In one word, they are "Perfect". I love their Madonna Roll, and their calimari is to die for! If you want to have a fun dat, go here, it is so awesome. Good food, good atmosphere, good service... what more could you want in a Sushi place? Best sushi in Sac.

Great things come in small packages... – I LOVE Taka's Sushi. It is a great place to grab a quick lunch, or have a fun dinner on a Friday night with a group of friends. It is a small place, but the waitresses are so willing to pull up a couple of tables together for the whole group. Great selection of sake (try the unfiltered NIGORI).

And the best part? THE SUSHI! Favorites include: Kohaku Roll, Fong Fong Roll, BBQ Albacore, and there are too many others to name. If you got friends who don't eat sushi, they have a to-die-for beef teriyaki.

The chefs are funny and easy to talk to if you are sitting at the bar. Watch out for Jason, he's a joker... same with Lou! This place is highly recommended by myself and so many of my friends. Bottome Line: Great place for sushi, laughs and a good time.
