    Let me start by saying I enjoy a good Omakaze. Takai was phenomenal, and the chef counter Omakaze consisted of 23 unique courses. It was worth the cost, and I loved every minute of the experience.

    Nothing even comes close. This is the best sushi experience in the state, perhaps the entire west coast. Pricey, but worth every penny. Thank you, will be back again.

    Incredible quality and thoughtfulness in the omikase dinner. An expensive treat but the experience is worth it to those that value absolutely top flight flavor.

    We have enjoyed their original location in Seattle and continue to go there. Eating at Takai last night was a wonderful experience and we were very impressed with the quality of the dishes we ordered. Service was fantastic! Walking distance from the Westin so we will go again for sure! The bonus was meeting Mr and Mrs Kashiba as well!

    Thank you for an amazing dinner and overall experience. Took my friend from Japan who lives the good life and she was incredibly impressed at how authentically Japanese and high quality everything was. Arigato!
