I've come up with a rule of thumb for sushi restaurants...the more they rely on tempura rolls and/or rolls doused in mayo the worse the overall quality. That rule held true here at Tako. It's not bad sushi per se...the basic rolls (e.g. spicy tuna) are respectiable if not great. About what you would want for a cheap college street... More

I visit this restaurant to eat sushi and was very good. The attention was perfect, and they have many options to choose. It is a small restaurant but totally worthless.

We went here for lunch when visiting our son. We really shouldn't have, because I so hate to go back to east coast Virginia sushi now. The seaweed salad was excellent. The egg rolls had a thin, thin crispy wrapper. The avocado, California rolls, avocado/mushroom rolls and 2 others were wonderful. We had a very sweet waitress and service was... More

But you planned it in Berkeley, CA on a Saturday night, so despite arriving pretty early, your time cushion is quickly evaporated by the search for parking. Still, having had to cancel a reservation at another Japanese restaurant, I'd heard of Tako Sushi, closer to our destination and... More

If you want some sushi and you don't wanna spend too much this is the place for you. Good quality for a very cheap price. Huge 8pieces rolls for 5$! I love the crazy monkey rolls and the salmon rolls. Good miso soup for just 1$!! Too bad it closes at 9pm!

A friend of mine introduced me to Tako and I'll drive from Oakland 20 minutes to Berkeley for their Oakland Roll. The miso soup is also very good, as well as the fried gyoza. I have not had anything else there, but since its down the street from UC Berkeley, it seems they have high turn over. Like other seafood... More

Good service, and decent sushi. But all the food I've tried here other than the sushi (teriyaki, tempura, etc) has been pretty bad.
