We are visiting Newton...family time. Boston traffic is so annoying, so we decided to have sushi at home. This sushi bar is close to our home (5 min walk). This sushi bar is for take out only. It is run by a cute elderly couple....More

This is a hidden jewel. Located in a sleepy downtow suburb, this is one of the best sushi places around. Don't waste your time trying to find a good sushi place. Just go here.

The sushi is ok - very large and filling rolls. I showed up a bit late so my sushi isn't as fresh as it could be but I've definitely had better. The gyoza however - so good! Bit pricey for what it is too if...More

You have to give credit to Takara, their portions are extremely generous. The sashimi is thick... and I mean THICK but therein lies the problem. It's like a big slab of fish and great sushi is all about balance. It's really good value and good...More

The sushi is phenomenal. They use large pieces of very fresh fish, just enough rice, and everything is on time and perfect. It's dinner every friday! But don't tell anyone - because I already have to call well in advance.
