Finally we found our way to this neighborhood style Japanese restaurant that also serves certain Korean dishes. Our party of 3 tried several dishes: Vegetable tempura - always good Harumaki, crispy vegetable spring roll - tasty Negi Tuna roll (seaweed outside, tuna and scallion inside) - refreshing Tuna Tataki (Thin slices grilled rare tuna with spicy ponzu sauce) - wonderful...

We go there often and sit at the bar. Great sushi, soups, teriyaki plates. Full bar. Very casual. Staff is warm and welcoming.

What a wonderful place Takara is. Nice servers, bento box is so yummy--I usually get the salmon or chicken teriyaki one, and have also gone for dinner and enjoyed it. Sushi is done well, too. Nice variety on menu. Never too loud for conversation. Nice, relaxing place.

one of our go-to restaurants for a decent asian meal. It's a mix of Japanese and Korean (though bills itself as Japanese). My friends like the sushi, and my son and I prefer to order from the Korean side of the menu, usually but not always the spicy pork bibambap.

They offer a lot of specialty rolls along with the expected choices. The house salad is a generous size with nice ginger dressing. Each of the sushi selections that we chose was fresh and delicious. We ordered online then picked up which was super efficient and convenient.
