I happened to pick Taka during restaurant week and benefited from a three course meal for $30. The bento box was full of well flavored food - teriyaki salmon, sweet potato croquettes, sesame noodles, and a full salmon roll. The setting of Taka is right in the heart of Asbury Park and the vibe is young, contemporary and fun. The large globe lights in the bar area are a welcome sight and bring a flair to the restaurant that just enhances the delicious food. I would definitely return to Taka when visiting on business again.

I've been here twice for lunch and got the sushi combination both times. I wish they had a smaller combination plate for lunch, with miso and a salad, because the combination comes with a large portion of nigiri and a tuna roll.

TAKA never disappoints. I have been dining there ever since they opened at their original location on Mattison Ave. Now with the new and gorgeous venue the menu has expanded and is even more delicious.

The sushi is always fresh and killer good. One of my favorites is the Red Kimono.
For traditional dinners the salmon, meatloaf and short ribs are fantastic.

The gelato is honestly the best I have ever had.

Run don't walk to TAKA. Make reservations for the weekends.

I have only dined at the bar but everything is great. Bartenders Todd and Blake are my favorites. Never a dull moment with those two. Food is always great and the place simply looks amazing. Never had a bad meal here and don't expect one. Keep up the great work guys.
