We ordered sushi and soup at Taka two days ago. Sushi was not great but main issue is that two members of my family developed severe vomiting the next morning. We will never visit this place again.

It was ok. Nice location and environment. Food was average. Prices a bit high but I presume that’s location related. Although no issues I prob wouldn’t go back.

This is a very popular, super busy sushi/japanese restaurant in Asbury. Can't complain about the quality of the food, everything was fine, tasty, but variety in menu is not spectacular. This is great for a Jersey spot but considering how big Asbury has gotten in...recent years I wish the menu options were a little more exciting, a little more adventurous.More

Great sushi but they also have plenty of non-sushi choices if you're with someone that doesn't like sushi or you're just not in the mood. Love the bar scene here, they have a little lounge area too. It's pretty big and they have a nice...outdoor seating area, too. Fun place to go out on a night.More

Our experience here was great! The sushi is amazing, To start we had edamame and the tuna poke bowl. I had the spicy tuna and shrimp tempura roll, my husband had the curry with chicken. The whole meal was amazing. And the staff was super...friendly!More

First time dining here and it was wonderful. It reminds me of a great NYC restaurant in the late 90s but for now. The sushi offerings were amazing, the gyoza was so good we ordered 2 for our daughter. The chicken Katsu and Sesame seared...tuna was all done perfectly. And we ended with Mochi ice cream, peanut bar and happy smiles.More

Our Taka experience was great ! Our waitress could not have been more attentive and made great recommendations. Of course we got the short ribs because there were just so many great reviews about them and they were fabulous, but we had to go a...little more authentic as well and got a jun-San sushi roll and Taka poke bowl and the Shumai dumplings, all fabulous the poke bowl was loaded with tuna, I might recommend a little rice in the bottom of the poke bowl to off set dark bowl and would enhance visual appeal, and the green beans on the short rib platter were cooked perfectly but maybe a quick fry with garlic would be yum....in case the chef is reading this...we will be back !!More

Food tasted great but......my daughter and husband got sick after eating. They both ate her seared tuna dish so we’re suspicious. Chicken teriyaki was good but different than what I’m used to. Other kiddo loved her rolls.

Went to Taka over Memorial Day weekend and was happy to see that it survived COVID and was quite busy! We have dined at Taka before and our experience was, once again, excellent. It is a big space with indoor and outdoor seating. We had...a very attentive and personable server who made great recommendations. The food was delicious- shu mai, edamame, tempura, rolls, salmon- our group had a bit of everything! The portion sizes are good too- just the right amount of food. The vibe is very lively and fun and you won’t go wrong at Taka when looking for sushi in Asbury!More

We enjoyed our sushi lunch on the patio of Take. Great people watching spot, excellent drinks, service and sushi. Lots to choose from on the menu--some odd hamburger and chicken sandwich choices which seemed out of place but ok. Would certainly come back!
