High-tech decor with heart-pounding beats isn't for everyone. Hey, the place is in Midtown, so what do you exect. Also, it's not the best sushi restaurant you can find either (see MF Sushibar). But this is a highly competent restaurant with some exceptional Asian-inspired dishes. The yellowfin tuna cheek appetizer(cooked) is by far the best thing on the menu. The sizziling fish is always a crowd pleaser. I always take out-of-town guests to the restaurant, and they're always glad I did. Expect to pay $15-$20 per entree and about $8-$10 for an appetizer. Also, the restaurant has $1 sushi on the weekdays.
The Rusan's Buckhead location is the best by far from any of them. I've known people to come from Cali, North Carolina, and NY just to come to this location. I believe the manager, well also the hostess, is gorgeous and has really made a difference in the service!! she seems to really care about how everyone feels about the restaurant. i like how involved they are now. I love the food and the vibe!! there's a few others in there that could use some coaching from her. But overall its a great place to be after a long week. Start the weekend off right with some loud customers, music, sake, and food!!!!
I have lived in Japan and traveled all over. when I go out of town I always find a sushi place and try it. Taka Sushi is the best in Atlanta and top 3 of the over 100 world wide I have been to. The fish is the freshest you can find, and they always have a great selection. They almost always have at least one type of Toro if not multiple grrades to choose from. If you like good quality sushi your missing out if you dont try Taka Sushi!!!
