    Great fish at reasonable prices! The rolls are good and the fish/rice are well prepared. Try the scallop sushi for a treat.

    Every neighborhood has their go-to casual sushi spot, and Taro is exactly that. Very fresh, reasonably priced, and a nice enough environment.

    Loved the spicy scallop roll! Pair with a roll with some crunch and some sake and you've got an awesome meal.

    Ok this was not only NOT Nobu, it was just BAD! I guess if you're used to a certain quality - mediocre will just not do.

    Quite possibly the nicest staff & manager I've ever met. They accidentally overcharged my card, I brought it to their attention, they apologized so much & are now treating me to a free dinner.

    The fish is as pristine and skillfully prepared as at any of the expense sushi places in Manhattan. Sit at the bar for omakase, a relative bargain, and munch your way through earthy monkfish liver. Read more

    Bypass the lines at Geido and mosey down Flatbush Avenue for equally satisfying sushi at Taro. Dark, wood fixtures and minimal design provide a moody backdrop for indulgences like toro tartar.

    Come with a date & get the Special Sushi for 2. It includes 16 pieces of sushi, a shrimp tempura roll & a mountain roll (spicy tuna, avocado & yellowtail) - all for $49. Everything is super fresh too!

    Super disappointed as recommendation came from a newly ex-pat Japanese friend. Butterfish had skin and tasted old. Nothing was really fresh. Prices were ok.

    Does warm sushi sound good to you? This place is gross. Go to Geido at Flatbush and Park; this restaurant just handles the overflow.

    A bit expensive, and not Exactly what I would describe as "good.". There are much better sushi spots in the area. Instead go to 'Gen' on Washington ave. Much better food and presentation.

    Mediocre. The sushi was just fine. The avoc. tofu salad was not good. Spider roll just tasted like fried batter. Geido,1 block up, is authentic & better. Kiku on 5th ave has the best sushi around.

    Delicious. However, default soy sauce is super salty. You can ask for low sodium if you like. Great Miso soup and you must try the Karen roll and Age Gyoza.
