This is truly a hidden gem, stumbled into it one night after sugar fish had to long of a wait. Now I hardly visit sugar fish unless it's for lunch. Love the dishes, and sushi. Try the toro caviar special can't go wrong.

Nice variety of items but specialize in Sushi. Fresh and tasty also great service. Chose to try the standard vs. premium since the differences did not seem to merit the additional cost. Full dinners include an appetizer and dessert. Average paid in our party of...More

This is the place to go for a variety of small, creative dishes. Sushi is a part of it, but not the primary experience and not always the best compared with the better sushi restaurants. The chef and his all Japanese crew are experts at...More

I like their fish and sushi. One of the best I ever had. Dinning environment is nice, service is very good. Overall, just love it. Would definitely go back sometimes.

Takao is a nice cosy spot that focuses more on fish than on being trendy and it shows. Usually get the omakase which is pretty solid and one of the better ones in LA for the price. It's nothing special in terms of selection but...More

Takao is a definite cut above most neighborhood Japanese restaurants.The menu is extensive and varied, including Omakase (with advance notice). The quality of the food and the preparation are generally excellent, and the service is friendly and efficient. It is quite small and undistinguished in...More
