Takara offers very good Japanese soups, sushi and sashimi. It's service is friendly, attentive and quick. If you're in a hurry and don't want to face a large meal, this is the place.

Finally we found our way to this neighborhood style Japanese restaurant that also serves certain Korean dishes. Our party of 3 tried several dishes:
Vegetable tempura - always good
Harumaki, crispy vegetable spring roll - tasty
Negi Tuna roll (seaweed outside, tuna and scallion inside) - refreshing
Tuna Tataki (Thin slices grilled rare tuna with spicy ponzu sauce) - wonderful smoky taste to the tuna.
Spicy Pork Bulgogi - Marinated thin strips of pork in a sauce over rice and vegetables - we will be back to have this again!
Kohaku Don, Tuna and yellowtail sashimi on a bed of sushi rice - the tuna was so fresh and sweet.
Beef Don - Spicy thin strips beef with scallions and onions, served in a spicy sauce over rice - a solid choice!
The 3 entrees came with nice tasting miso soup or a salad with ginger dressing.
The service was efficient. Parking in the back of the restaurant.
