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!

Our second visit here, service was a bit slow, food is good but some of the portion sizes are very small for the money but that said this is a nice place to eat.

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.

Small restaurant but nicely finished and clean looking. We had the taster menu which was a nice selection of good food and we were full at the end. Good value and friendly service.

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.

This has to be one of the best Japanese restaurants that I have tried in London. Everything that I was served was cooked or prepared to a very high standard. Service was really good and attentive. Highly impressed by this restaurant!
