I am Japanese-American, so I would like to think that I know a thing or two about authentic Japanese cuisine (and Hot Dogs too). Takino is a bit pricey, but the food is just as it should be. Tasty, delicate and prepared with great care. The sushi is finely made with care and NOT rushed- so expect to take your time or go somewhere else. The entree menu is not diverse, but the items on it are all very good. There are others around which cost less, but splurge and enjoy your meal.
Pros: Authentic, Fresh, Location
Cons: pricey, cramped
