We were used to go here quite often, but today the sushi did not taste very fresh. The maki sushi were small and the rice seemed to be pressed by a machine and tasted very dens. Could be an incident, but the experience was not one we had before at Takara. New owner or policy? Please change back...

Great service. I had the chicken teriyaki ... And it must be the best I've ever had. Portion size was great for me, and two of us ate, with a drink each, plus a shared dessert, for €34!
