Taka Sushi Restaurant, Summit, New Jersey

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Premier Properties

Taka Sushi Restaurant, Summit, New Jersey is one of my family’s favorite places to eat locally.  We can walk to the restaurant from our home and, rain or shine, it is always worth the short stroll.  My daughters grew up loving Sushi and it was a “requirement” that there was Sushi either on campus or close by when my eldest daughter was looking for a college!  Both girls have visited Japan and so Japanese cuisine is part of our family life.  I often recommend Taka Sushi to my friends, colleagues, buyers and sellers.


Taka Sushi offers great service and a menu that is interesting and delicious.  One of our favorite appetizers is Rock Shrimp – shrimp cooked “tempura-style” and then coated in a creamy, spicy sauce – and we nearly always order it.  As Taka Sushi is a BYOB restaurant we sometimes stop next door at the liquor store and buy a bottle of Sake.  The staff at Taka Sushi warms the Sake perfectly and it goes wonderfully with the menu. When it comes to entrees there is an excellent choice of kitchen-prepared items on the menu such as Hibachi or Teriyaki  to name but two, or an extensive selection of Sushi and Sashimi (another family favorite of ours, in particular, is the white tuna.)  The quality of the fish is consistently good, as are the side dishes such as salad, soup etc.   If it is very cold outside, it is fun to order the Udon or Soba Noodle soup-style dishes – very warming and satisfying!


When it comes to dessert we usually don’t have room however a favorite item, if we do, is Ice-Cream Tempura made with green tea ice-cream.  This dish is an interesting blend of flavors, textures and temperatures and is prepared using the tempura method that is so popular, and delicious, in Japanese cuisine.  It is rare that anything is left over to take home when we eat at Taka Sushi!  The appetizers and entrees are just the right size and very satisfying.  If you enjoy Japanese food contact me for more information on homes currently for sale in and around Summit so that you too can enjoy menu items like Rock Shrimp for yourself at Taka Sushi Restaurant, Summit, New Jersey!

Luckily there is plenty on the menu other than Sushi or Sashimi so Taka caters for everyone!
