Tasty and very economical. Many locals appear to be eating here. Most eating Ramen. Bento box and sushi was very good! Small but quaint space. Two TV's as well. Friendly wait staff.

A small place, a hole-in-the-wall with not much seating. Service was nice. Food was adequate. The sushi rolls were a tad unrefined, but OK. I probably wouldn't go back.

My god daughter LOVEDS this place. She's told me many times that Takara has better miso soup and no place does the golden gate roll like them. Staff is friendly and always checking up on you, which is great! Atmosphere is good and quiet.

A pleasant dining experience but not really outstanding. Modestly priced and pleasant atmosphere.
