Takara Sushi & Seafood Restaurant, Japantown, San Francisco, California

Japan Center
Miyako Mall
22 Peace Plaza, #202
415-921-2000

Cuisine: Sushi & Seafood

Description & Atmosphere
The Japanese word "takara" means "treasure" — and that's exactly how we would describe this casual sushi restaurant, located on the 2nd floor of Japantown's Miyako Mall.

Decor is simple, but the food really shines. Takara's dining room seats up to 72 people and offers booth and table seating (with windows along one side). A separate small Sushi Bar (photo below) — and two traditional Private Tatami Rooms — are located just off the main dining area.

Note: The restaurant has no air-conditioning — only fans — it can get a little warm inside, even in the winter, so dress coolly.

Food
You'd expect "top-rate sushi restaurants" in Japantown, but Takara is a cut above the rest — their White Sashimi Tuna just melts in your mouth. This is some of the best sushi we've eaten in San Francisco.

Takara serves critically-acclaimed Japanese Seafood and Rice dishes, Udon/Soba Noodles, fresh Sashimi, Sushi and Tempura.

Special Lunch Bento Box combos (photos above and below) are delicious and very reasonable. During a recent lunch we enjoyed Miso Soup, Salad, Rice, White Sashimi Tuna, California Rolls and Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura.
