The food is amazing and is the best family run sushi restaurant in LA you must try it. The food is high quality and the staff is great!

Best Japanese food in LA. The owners are amazingly nice, and the wait staff knows just how to make the food taste the absolute best. This is a must if you're looking for the best Japanese food you can find.

We sat at the sushi bar to be as close to the Master Chef as possible and he didn't disappoint. I loved that the chef not only served us the best sushi I've ever eaten, he actually was advising us the order in which to eat what he was serving us, but even how much time to wait in between bites to maximize the taste and experience.Service was excellent with quiet anticipation of all our needs.

We ate lite so didn't venture far into the menu; that didn't keep us from admiring the BEAUTIFUL things distributed to fellow diners over the night or overhearing pleased diners who enthused openly (sometimes loudly) over something delicious. When I entered most of the tables had reserved signs. They were filled from that point on in the evening. The sushi we did get was quiet and delicious. Texture is sometimes the most important thing in raw foods. You don't notice it so much unless it's bad, or really good. It's really good at Takao. Their little rolls looked beautiful. Things resting on banana leaves, cooked items, looked delicious. The decor is clean, simple and light. It's much more lovely than it appears from outside. It's a little tight, especially at the sushi bar where we sat. Overall, very nice.

Fabulous, innovative but also classic Japanese style sashimi and sushi - high quality, great value and many unusual seasonal items. Heavenly lace-like tempura, amazing sake list but the best part are the people- charming, friendly, helpful and professional- dedicated to ensuring you enjoy a good time. There is no hype, no flashing lights, no blaring music and no attitude, no screaming, - just relaxed, understated decor and very authentic, delicious and creative cuisine. One place you should try the omakase as it will be exceptional and great value. I have spent a lot of time in Japan and this is the real deal! My favorite for an exceptional meal where it is all about the food and the people!
