Reviews of Takenoya
02/04/2011 - Hani
Preface: We are NOT picky diners.
This was our first (and last) experience at Takenoya. Our regular sushi place (Sushi Teri) was packed, so we decided to try Takenoya for dinner tonight. They were pretty busy too, so tables were limited. We were seated in the back room in an area that was being used for storage of Christmas lights, audio equipment, a large rifle (presumably a BB gun), and tons of other stuff. We ordered a couple of sodas that arrived in cans. We're used to unlimited refills, so this was a bummer for us. After ordering and waiting a reasonable amount of time, our order started to arrive. We got our miso soup - which was great. But it's tough to screw up miso soup, right? The edamame came soon after. They were hot, but they didn't taste very fresh. The side of steamed rice that came was not hot at all. Then the sushi rolls arrived. They were priced very similarly to other sushi places in town - but good Lord they were small! To top it off, they didn't taste very fresh. They just weren't that good. Needless to say, for what you get, they were WAY overpriced. As for the service, I know they were busy, but the waitress wasn't very attentive. She never checked on us to ask if everything was okay. I figure it takes 15 seconds to do that. The most attention we got was when we were placing our order and when we were paying the bill. On the way out, we noticed that the floors were pretty sticky. Like I said, we're not too picky - but the combination of all these things really made this a pretty miserable experience for us. I mean, if we're going to pay $50 for dinner we'd expect a much better experience and a decent meal. We won't be going back. (Two blocks down the road is Sushi Teri, go there.)

Excellent Japanese food and creative. Service is on / off. There are many items here that are slightly better than normal Japanese food, that you would not think might be better. Try the edimomi as an example which is not as over cooked as you will find in man Sushi places.

Great sushi and Takenoya always has very good and interesting specialty rolls. A bit pricey and service is hit and miss.
