My fiance and I wanted to try a new sushi restaurant. Taka was initially hard to find using google maps. The address and the location picture on google maps doesn't match up. That was our only issue. The dry-aged tuna was very flavorful. All of the sashimi was top quality and full of flavor. My fiance had the dragon roll but they were out of prawns so had a soft shell crab as a substitute. Each sushi roll we got was very fresh and full of flavors. I liked chilled saki which most of the saki on the menu was served. The matcha saki was a refreshing, mildly sweet, mildly sour...like a nice cool spiked lemonade. We ended dinner with an absolutely buttery, mouth-watering piece of wagyu beef. That really capped dinner for us.

Richard, the restaurant manager was an absolute delight. We spend time chatting about the restaurant and the transition it is going through and some of the plans. He brought out the chef. It was a pleasure and honor to meet him.

We had a great experience in addition to phenomanl food which is what we desire when we go out to a restaurant. I definitely recommend going for the sushi and the service.

Overall everything was amazing, but personally my friends and I found the edamame to be lacking in taste compared to other similar restaurants. For the rest, the food was outstanding.

I have been here twice now and is honestly 2x better than any other sushi restaurant in London. Especially given the price compared to the others. 10/10 can’t wait to come again!

Had an absolutely fantastic dinner experience . I have been to the restaurant a few times and have always enjoyed the food , the ambiance and the service . Upon my last visit I was told that the menu had changed slightly . Our waitress , Aga , who was so helpful and attentive that we asked her name , took us through all the changed and recommended a few excellent dishes: the green salad , the salmon and the dragon roll ! She also helped us select the perfect sake to go with the dishes . All in all , extremely satisfied, as always .

Can not fault the service and the quality of the food but due to the narrow shape of the restaurant lack a bit of the buzz.

We were the only people in the restaurant and the food took forever. Food was fine but not amazing. Gyozas arrived cold, they were taken off the bill but given the price point it’s not really acceptable.

Excellent service and I absolutely love the ambience! I saw pictures and immediately wanted to book this restaurant as it looked really cosy. The service was so friendly but mainly, the veg selection for a Japanese restaurant was brilliant. Will definitely be back!

Really tasteful little japanese - particularly if you're looking for somewhere low key / away from the showiness of Mayfair. I would go again. Also - the cocktails are really good.

サービスは特によいとはいえないが、コスパがよいので気にならない。天汁はおいしかったが、寿司につける醤油がしょっぱいことが残念だった。海老天は小さかったが手づくりのようでおいしかったし、枝豆もサラダも盛りがよかった。

Having eaten many times at Taka, this was the most disappointing visit overall. The food was good as always however the pace and service left a lot to be desired. At one point all the food ordered emerged from the kitchen before previous dishes had been finished. This ended up with Sashimi and rolls and hot dishes all at the same time requiring the use of the adjacent table. Our server was attentive and responsive, however it was clear that there was no communication between the kitchen and front of house.
