Taka Sushi Cafe: Atlanta

posted on September 15, 2005 at 4:47 pm


I eat at Taka a lot because it is around the corner and I just can’t stand how pretentious Soto is. Tonight was darn good and I just had to write about it. We had the Thai style red snapper sashimi which came with pine nuts, cilantro, shredded daikon/shizo mixture, and peanut tasty. Unbelievably good and perfectly-seasoned fried eel bones. We then had the grilled pike (which is in season) along with a ponzu sauce…a bunch of bones but very tasty. We then had the sea urchin custard which had pieces of unagi, asparagus, edamame, and a generous helping of Uni. The short ribs followed. This was the best part. He uses a mixture of mirin, soy sauce, and something else I cannot remember…delish. Please go soon as most of these are specials that won’t be around much longer.

    I finally went to Taka last night. I have been suffering since moving here from NYC, sushi-wise. But Taka was pretty good. Best I’ve had in ATL and better than most outside NYC, SF, or LA. Sashimi was delicious, as was the grilled hamachi cheeks. Tuna tartare with pine nuts and raisins was very good. I didn’t like the miso soup, though. Our “apple pie” dessert was perfect. We will definitely be going back!

    I really don’t understand why people like this place so much. Other than their fresh fish the yget for the weekends, (which I agree they are fresh & good) his food is not all that creative comparing with the real Japanese restaurant standard. I am a native Japanese, and his food is really not that special. If you have never tried Circle Sushi, you should try them. Although it is a bit out of the way – outside 285 on Roswell Rd off 400 – their food is much more worth your money and trip. Their fish is great and the executive chef is trained with the real Japanese cuisine, which I find very difficult to find in ATL.

    Your Taka website link leads to Taka of Atlanta, not a restaurant.
