Great selection of sushi to choose from. Variety of beers, Saki and drinks. Staff are amazing and friendly. Make a reservation if you are on a schedule. The place is always full and there is a wait.

An excellent place to dine the best sushi and Japanese food. It's gourmet food. The service is not the best, the two people at the reception are not the friendliest. They charged us badly for a bottle of wine and the manager had to fix...More

Takashi pushes the envelope of contemporary Japanese cuisine, presenting unrivaled sushi and sashimi along with innovative small plates and hot entrees in a memorable downtown setting.

Whether you prefer a bar side seat with a view of the action at the cutting boards, or a cozy table for two, our friendly and knowledgeable servers will guide you through the menus, the specials board, and our excellent collection of premium sake, beer, wine and fabulous specialty cocktails.

WHILE MOST SEATING IS ON A WALK-IN BASIS, we do offer a few early reservations through Open Table.
