My boyfriend and I usually hit up Blue Ribbon for good sushi, but they can be quite pricey. You definitely get what you pay for but ocassionally, my bf and I are just looking to fulfill our sushi cravings but not want to spend a fortune. I found out about Taro through a magazine article and have been hooked ever since! The fish is super fresh and the prices are soo reasonable! I live in the are and have frequented all the other sushi joints in the area, Kiku, Nana's and Yamato are good...but for good sashimi, go to Taro. They are much more authentic then the others.

I love sushi, but really good sushi is often expensive, and I'm too much of a cheapo to eat it often. Taro has changed this. Not only is Taro conveniently located two blocks from my apartment, but it's top quality sushi! If this were in Mannhattan it would draw good reviews and be priced 2-3 as high. As it is now, you get excellent, top quality sushi at affordable prices. Although one can go here and get the typical sushi found everywhere else, I particularly like the fact that they regularly have special rolls and other interesting menu items that aren't ubiquitous throughout the city. In particular, the steamed pumpkin is subtle and tasty, the edamami is perfectly done, and the squid tempura rolls are so amazing they're addictive. In fact, I have had to put a semi-moratorium (no more than once a month) on the place with my girlfriend, because otherwise we would go out there too often. The resaraunt is tiny, slightly cramped, and the decor is pretty basic, but who cares when you are eating top quality sushi at good prices. The service is good and everyone at the place is friendly. I normally wouldn't write a review for the place (and thus give up our neighborhoods' little secret) but I'm about to move away, so please, help yourself and visit Taro.

This is definitely the best sushi in the area--it even rivals the fancy midtown sushi places where i take clients for lunch. the decor is basically nonexistent and the small space can get crowded, but the service is efficient and friendly. If you order the food to go, they'll have it ready inside 10 minutes.

Without a doubt the freshest sushi available in Brooklyn. (For a tenth of what I used to spend at blue ribbon) Park Slope really needed this restaurant. Most Importantly they deliver to Prospect Heights!

If you don't mind the "low key" digs- the flies don't seem to in the summer- this is definately the place. Totally no frills- but the freshest tastiest sushi you will find in PS.

The restaurant scene in Park Slope and this gem is certainly a great addition. My husband and I like sushi, but we're not like some people who crave it weekly. Since we started going to Taro we east sushi more than ever before. The fish is extremely fresh, the portions are generous, and there is a menu of specials that changes frequently and offers more unusual things. Even dishes that have humble descriptions are great - try the agedashi tofu. They have Sapporo on tap, too. The decor is nothing to rave about, but the service is attentive. Highly recommended.
