I have been eating here for over 10 years. This place truly is the best sushi in San Diego. I know a lot of you will say that Sushi Ito is your favorite, but honestly, this is by far the best sushi I have had (outside of Japan).\r\n\r\nThe prices here are not cheap, so be prepared to spend some money. \r\n\r\nThe only negative I have for this place is that when you show up to the front without reservations, they look at you like you are out of your mind. Also, when you look at the sushi bar and it is completely empty, don't get too excited thinking you can just sit there, undoubtedly when you say you would like to sit there, the receptionist will tell you it's an hour wait. Seriously, even if the bar is empty, they seem to be full with reservations.\r\n\r\nFood 5\r\nAtmosphere 4.5\r\nSushi Chefs 5\r\nReceptionist 3 \r\n

This place has some wonderful sushi. Its fresh and always great quality. I have eaten here a couple times when visiting San Diego in the past few months and have never been disappointed. The chefs really know what they are doing so your going to get the best sushi you've ever had. I only wish they were closer to my house so i could come all the time.
You know when you have good sushi when it melts in your mouth and you can savor each taste to perfection.
It is probably the closest thing to being over in japan hand having sushi there.

Taka is by far the freshest sushi in San Diego. For those that might say it's expensive. I have compared and prices are the same as other sushi restaurant here. The reason why it might seem to cost more is you eat more since the fish is so fresh. I have tried everywhere in San Diego and everywhere else is a disappointment and waste of my money. Now I know better to only eat sushi at Taka.

Absolutely outstanding! I have dined in Japanese restaurants all across the US, Europe and Japan. Taka is one of the very best I have ever experienced in the United States and equal to the best in Japan. If amazing fresh sushi is what you are looking for, Taka is the place. If you want to skip the bad music, attitudes and mega rolls go to Taka.

Pros: The fish. The best in SD.

Cons: It is a small restaurant so seating can be an issue.

While this is my first review, I am no stranger to sushi. I am Japanese American foodie and I have eaten sashimi and sushi for over 55 years. I have worked in a Japanese owned fish market, Sakanaya. We sold sashimi tuna and seabass daily. I go fishing for tuna out of San Diego every year and have eaten sashimi yellowfin tuna that I caught 20 minutes before. I know fresh fish when I see it and taste it. I have eaten in dozens of sushi bars in the US, mostly in southern California including Sushi Nozawa in the San Fernando Valley and Sushi Ota in San Diego. I have eaten sushi in Boston, Washington, Seattle, Portland, and Tokyo Japan. I have even enjoyed the almostly legendary ""Boston Tuna"". (Bluefin tuna caught off the New England coast)\r\n\r\nI am telling you this but because I am going to tell you that Taka is one of the best I have ever had. Taka is second to none. I took my wife and son. My wife thought that the uni was best she has had in years, sweet and creamy, not strong or old. We all loved the bluefin toro. It was rich and full of flavor. just like Boston tuna. I also enjoyed the amber jack. I have eaten cooked amber jack in Mexico but this amber jack was from Japan. It was mild and reminded me of hamachi. They had a wide selection of fish from Japan and I sampled almost all of it. even the aji, spanish mackerel. I am not fond of strong tasting fish bu it was mild. . All the sushi we had was as fresh as could be, the portions were good size and the presentation of the sushi showed the artistry of the sushi chef . The one drawback to Taka is, it is expensive. If you go to Taka, keep in mind that their selection of fish for that day could be different from what I wrote about.but I think you will enjoy whatever you order if you are a sushi foodie.

Cons: Expensive, no parking

Editorial from

If Taka is packed and it's hard to get a table, you can grab a stool at the sushi bar and enjoy some of the seafood straight from the chefs. Taka's kitchen marries Western and Japanese cuisines. Start with spicy tuna tartare with avocado…
