RE-OPENING! – Hi everyone, just to give you an update on Taka's Sushi (for those who are fans). They are planning a grand re-opening in September. I am sorry Zen Toro patrons, but Taka's has bought the restaurant and taken over the lease. Just to let you know, Mr. Nishiyama (the owner of Zen Toro) still has a place out in Davis. All of your favorite Taka chefs will be back (Lou, Jason, Mike, and Nao San). It will be the same menu with new additions. I will keep you updated on the formal re-opening date and wed love it if you could come by!
where did taka's go????????? – ok so went to go to takas for some grub the other day...and it was all boarded up!!! does anyone know if this place moved or if they are gone for good?????
TAKA'S SUSHI REVIEW – If you are looking for tasty authentic sushi and want to dine in a casual and fun environment this is the place! It has a very relaxing ambience and the staff is very nice. It is good for couples or group dining. I have eaten there many times and have always had a a great time.
A lot better than Mikuni's! – I laughed when I read the previous rater's review. Hot towels? Come on now! Taka's is blantantly a "California Style" sushi joint! They aren't masquerading to be some high class place where waiters with stiff white collars are going to hand you hot towels! Now, I go there for the food. I have been to those other places but yet I still come back to Takas. Not because of the service, which I admit is mediocre at times, but for the quality of food. The chefs are second to none. If you establish a relationship with them, they will treat you like a KING! I know my sushi and my fish and I know Taka's serves the best quality fish they can find. No doubts about that in my mind...
Just Average Sushi! – Just average sushi. I'm a recent transplant from the Bay Area and Taka's is just average compared to some of the great sushi places in SF, Berkeley and Alameda. They had no amaebi! This is the first sushi place that I've been to that didn't have it. I was able to get one mediocre order of hamachi toro before they ran out at 6:30p on a Saturday night. Not a good sign. Had to constantly ask the sushi chef to refill the gari and wasabi for us. No hot towels when you sit down. Sushi chefs are not very professional. In fact, one was talking with an obvious regular at the bar and using profanity in front of my young son. If this is one of the best in Sac, then I've moved to a gastronomic dead zone.
Going Down Hill – I have been going to Taka's for almost 3 years and it used to be my favorite place. Had a few problems with quality of food after the remodel for a few months. Unfortunately the service has gotten very bad. Not from the wait staff but from the Sushi chefs. I got a roll that the pieces were very big and asked to have them cut and was handed a butter knife! Chef said for me to do it myself. Asked to see a manager and was told "NO". I know six people that wont go back because of the service. Too bad :-(
This is the place I miss most in Sacramento – We moved back to Seattle and have some great Sushi places but Taki's is an A..miss the neighborhood Sushi place that serves excellent Sushi... Would not move back to Sacramento for that but would visit and eat there.
Delicious – I don't know what Takas the other reviewer went to but I have NEVER had a bad experience at Taka's. The food is always wonderful and I always feel welcome there. The sushi chefs are always friendly and willing to make something new for my friends and me. Takas is wonderful, hands down. I always go in for Monday Night Footbal because they also have HUGE plasma screen. It's great.
Horrible – I was born and raised in Japan and I can tell you that my experience at Taka's was horrible. My friends like to take me to new sushi places as a "gauge" on how good and authentic a place is. Some friends had raved about Taka's so I decided to give it a try. It was not worth going. The fish wasn't very fresh, the rice was too wet, the flavors weren't good, the service was bad, and the overall experience left a bad taste in my mouth (or maybe that was the sushi...). I would not recommend this place to anyone.
