We enjoyed a sesame chick in appetizer to start and it was fabulous. Also ordered a couple sushi rolls. One member of our party stated it was some of the best sushi he's ever had and the rice in particular was very well prepared. Good atmosphere in the resturant. We will have to give the sushi bar a try next time.

This is a small place near a movie theater. The sashimi is top notch. Service is very good and the environment is very pleasing.

Japanese cuisine is the consistent choice for us. Have had the luxury of visiting that unique country and sampled restaurants all over the U.S. Our favorite is in Dana Point, but we decided to give this establishment a try for comparison. Sashimi is always on my plate and my lady prefers tempura, so we ordered accordingly. The overall impression was good, but I found the Ahi (raw) below par. So I'd give this place average marks and probably not return as there a number of other Japanese diners
further up the quality scale.

We have been going to San Clemente regularly since 1975 but had never tried Taka-O. We were very pleased with our dinner; and we got in on an Early Bird special.

Some times eating out alone isn't fun, but the sushi chefs are pretty friendly and actually pretty funny! Loved the roll I got and the sauce was amazing...but the amount of sauce was a little more than I like. I would ask for sauce on the side next time. If I lived here, this would be my sushi spot.
