Takah Sushi was born with the arrival of Aspen as a skiing mecca, but consider this premier purveyor of Japanese and Asian cuisine a legend in its own right, a must visit favorite of locals and tourists alike. We welcome you to our lively bar and lounge, entertain and delight you at our sushi bar or in our cozy dining room.

Diner Reviews
  • "Owner retiring. Up for sale. Would hate to see it go :("
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Very inflexible. Asked for substitutions for dietary reasons and were told there are no substitutions allowed. The table water had a very bad taste. Server acted as if there was no problem. Table next to us noticed water was bad too. I have eaten here every season for over 20 years and will not return. Food was below average relative to the price."

  • "Takah Sushi has been a "must go" restaurant for us since our first visit to Aspen. The sushi is always delicious, and we enjoyed some new items this visit, including the Agedashi tofu and Japanese eggplant. We visited the restaurant during their alumni party, so it was a bit noisier than usual. But the staff treated us wonderfully. We -- and many others, I'm sure -- will miss it!"

  • "Nestled in the center of Aspen Takah serves up super fresh sushi and sashimi- that will leave you wondering how they do it without an ocean close by. Try colorado style yellowtail (with jalapeños and yuzu sauce) and the sashimi platter for melt in your mouth tuna."

  • "This sushi restaurant is fairly priced and had wonderful service. The sushi is incredible! I would definitely go back."

  • "The maître de was delightful, and sat us at a very comfortable table. We ordered, and the tempura came and was delicious. Then our rolls came, and the wrap was very rubbery, and hard to chew. We had to pull them apart to get to the middles which were just ok. The waitress was a bit brusque and seemed to want us to hurry, which we did to get out of there. Not sure I would recommend."

  • "We've been coming to Takah for sushi dinners for a few years now and the quality has never let us down. Great atmosphere, fantastic food, and a fun place to celebrate a special occasion (let your server know it's your birthday for a "special" birthday dessert ;) ). Order the atomic shrimp appetizer- you won't regret it!"

  • "We had a group of 6 - the food and service were excellent. It's in the basement sort of which was weird at first but it was really cozy and intimate. Good price for Aspen as well - not too much over upscale sushi in Denver."
    Dined on 6/30/2013
  • "Atomic shrimp to die for. And Kobe beef sliders with 3 different sauces were perfect. The Takaih Sushii roll was awesome. We will be going back during our visit Aspen!"
    Dined on 6/27/2013

  • "I have been coming to Aspen since 25 years ago and evry time i come with we go for dinner. Also we like to spend New Years Eve there. We like the fiid very much."
    Dined on 3/25/2013
  • "Food was excellent, service was indifferent and oddly paced. We did not get our wine until we were halfway through our meal so when we were done with the food we had half a bottle left. They did give us a brown bag to take the wine home. The restaurant is small, crowded and noisy - not necessarily bad if you like that ambience, just be aware of it if you don't. I reservedly recommend it because the food was so good and if you understand the limitations, but would probably not go back."

  • "As always Casey and her daughter are doing a fine job. The waiter chose all of our selections based upon our request. For a party of seven of various ages and taste requirements it was perfect. After many years of coming to Aspen its good to see the old standby still going strong....it's not an easy business and many have not fared as well...Keep up the good work!"

  • "My wife likes Sushi (although not my favorite food) I tried one of her tuna tacos and enjoyed it. My wife rated the sushi very good. I enjoyed a cooked shell fish entree. All the tables were taken on a Sunday - busy Aspen weekend. Although we had a reservation we were early and sat at the bar. We had a good time bantering with the bartender and ended up eating at the bar (you can save a few bucks with the bar menu). Fun place even if sushi / sashimi dishes are not your favorite."

  • "One of the best sushi restaurants in the country period."
    Dined on 2/9/2013
  • "Great place. Great service most reasonable priced sushi in aspen"
    Dined on 2/6/2013
  • "The food was good but not worth the price. The Vietnamese lettuce wrap was the best part of my meal. The calamari was tender but the flavor was nothing more than typical. I was looking forward to the Thai roll because,at $28 for one roll, it better be special! Peanuts and a hint of lemongrass. Okaaaay, but $28??. The spicy tuna roll wasn't all that spicy without wasabi. All that said, the service was attentive and friendly, atmosphere hip and pleasant. I probably won't go again but would probably tell others who come to Aspen about it."

  • "I live in Aspen, which has many restaurants. Takah is, by far, my favorite."
    Dined on 1/28/2013
  • "Friendly service and very good food. Not cheap, but definitely one of the better values in Aspen. We especially enjoyed the calamari, pad thai, and Sashimi "Colorado Style". Ordered several dishes and they were all very good. Takah has good cocktails as well."

  • "Consistently very good food and an overall pleasure."

  • "We were a party of three older adults who loved our food. We also noted that when we entered and requested a quiet seating spot, the manager lowered the music level. Unusual but greatly appreciated response. We could converse without shouting."
