There are now many sushi restaurants that are getting rave reviews, places like Tomo and Umi and others. While they are good, and yes I have been to them, they pale in comparison to Taka. Like his contemporaries in Japan and the true masters f...More

Went there for lunch. Not too many people. Parking was impossible. The bigger concern was the temperature of the fish on the rolls: it was warm... :-( Not really impressed.

RHad the bento box for lunch. It was last night's leftovers including reheated salmon and mashed potatoes. This is not Japanese food. Service was rushed. Don't go here if you know how good Japanese food should be.

This was just an average restaurant, but fairly expensive. Nonetheless, it was a good thing we had a reservation since this small place was almost full. The fish seemed fresh but the sushi is just average, nothing special to justify the expense.

Fresh fish, great service, Taka (the owner) is always there. Not too big, not too small and in convenient Buckhead location. Have been a customer since Soto left town for NY in early 2000's. Other sushi/Japanese competition is too pricy and too trendy or simply...More

Whether it's the ICBM or the Copacabano Roll, Taka rocked it last night. The Black Cod was darn near perfect, and the spicy tuna roll was too. They have an excellent wine selection, the Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay couldn't have been better! This place reminded...More
