Stopped in to Takara for dinner one afternoon early, Took advantage of happy hour specials, experienced great service, server was very knowledgeable and attentive, made suggestions. This is our 3rd or 4th visit and have never been disappointed in food or service. Menu is diverse so non sushi eaters can find something they will like.

We have been to Takara's three different times and our most recent visit was the best. We go there for a special night out with the family because all of our family members can find something delightful to eat including a gluten-free option. We had caught the jazz ensemble Who was also playing which added to the awesome atmosphere. We... More

Takara has really good sushi among other delicious menu items. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly. They are attentive but not to the extreme that they bother you constantly. I wouldn't say it is a place for children although they do dine there.

While visiting my family in town, they raved about the sushi here at this location. Keeping in mind this is the middle of Texas, I was sure it'd be good but not very good sushi. The service here is outstanding. From the bartender who served us while we waited for a table to our server were all spectacular. The sushi... More

Midori roll was excellent. Salads great. Beef medallions had to be sent back. The Teppen-Yaki beef and shrimp decent but not too die for. Our waiter was so quiet we could barely understand anything he said and the slowest service ever. Might go back. Might not.

I have been looking for a good sushi place ever since I moved to the Austin area and it looks like I finally found it. I love the atmosphere at this place and the staff is very friendly and attentative. The sushi's great. They have other dishes too, such as chicken and beef, but we came here for the sushi.... More

We lunched here quite a few times and on several occasions the salmon sushi was cut incorrectly making it impossible to take a bite. After this occured more than once I asked the waiter to return it and ask for a recut. He returned and said the chef said I didn't know what I was talking about. We eat sushi... More

The sushi is VERY good! My brother visited from San Diego and said it's probably as fresh as any sushi he ordered there. The other dishes are a bit pricey, but high quality and delicious. Would recommend the Takara reserve salmon, it is delicious. A bonus is the live jazz music they have on the weekends.

Have not been back to this restaurant since being treated the worst I ever have been by so-called management. There was a conflict over a coupon coupled with an inexperienced waitress that resulted in us speaking with who we were told was the manager. Turns out this extremely rude and unaccommodating person was NOT the manager. To top it off,... More

Takara is probably the best sushi in the Cedar Park area! They have a great atmosphere with a jazz band on Friday and Saturday nights. Great selection of adult beverages and a fantastic staff. The sushi is always very good with a wide varity of rolls. To me it is a little expensive, even for fresh sushi, but the atmosphere... More
