Stopped in for a mid-week lunch. The lunch special seemed like a great deal and the rolls were fantastic. We also ordered a noodle bowl which was huge! Service was friendly and a seat by the window was great for people watching.

When I'm visiting AP and in the mood for ethnic cuisine Japanese style, I hit up Taka. I would suggest making reservations if it's the weekend otherwise they may be booked. Happened to me twice when I craved sushi last minute. If there's a wait,...More
