Our first time here and we were delighted! I ordered plumb wine, mmmmm, the miso soup, followed by a small ginger salad, the the tempura vegetables, then I got the combination pad Thai with a pot of green tea, I loved it all, it was very good. My wife got the sushi box, with a ginger salad, warm sake, she... More

When we walked into the restaurant there were people seated at two other tables. we were greeted and asked what we would like to drink. Drinks were brought promptly. It was down hill from there. The wait for dinner was dragged on forever. We were served piecemeal, very slowly. One appetizer (the wrong one) was brought to the table. Long... More

While Takara is labeled here as a Japanese restaurant, in its current form it serves sushi and Thai cuisine. The restaurant is very small with maybe 10 tables. The kitchen is also small and when the restaurant is full you must be patient awaiting your order. The room is not fancy at all but the lighting at night is subdued... More

Great fresh food with wonderful flavors. Large menu, many choices, always good. Small, not fancy, but worth it for the food

We went just now and the place was pretty busy. Did not mind waiting as the reviews said food was good. After waiting 45 minutes we get our entree. Presentation was beautiful. Chicken and rice both were cold. Not a good experience to wait this long for cold food. Not to mention a Walgreens brand bottle of water was $2.50.... More

I got the drunken noodles (which I get at every thai restaurant) the flavors were very good and it came in a large portion for about $11, I got tofu on it and it was crunchy and perfectly cooked. I got the tofu soup also expecting it to be pretty plain but the flavors were amazing, kind of garlicky and... More

This is a tiny little place across the highway from the Marathon City Marina and it is well worth checking out. Too bad they are only open for dinner; we would frequent it if they were open for lunch, but maybe that will come with their increasing popularity. My wife had some excellent massaman curry and I had probably the... More

I couldn't wait to get back to Marathon to eat here again. The food is fresh and the sauces that come with the entrees are flavorful and not overly thick or gooey. Spicy entrees can be ordered by degree of heat preferred. There is an extensive menu with Japanese, Thai and sushi and even hot pot. I ate Spicy Herb... More

I love this place, the food is really delicious and the service was excellent. I would say that for take out it is a little pricey, and my only criticism for dining in was that there was no atmosphere. They really need some background music! Food is great though, which is the main thing!
