The restaurant has moved to Flatbush Ave. which I discovered only after arriving at the address listed by NY Mag. ARGH!

I recently ate with my boyfriend at Taro after reading all the great reviews on NYMag.com, but was horribly disappointed! We ordered 5 rolls and they all came out mushy tasting -- even the shrimp tempura roll. The rice was too prevalent and the fish had no taste at all. The rolls made for a bland, mushy dinner :(.

This small, friendly place serves great fresh, delicious sushi and a nice selection of other interesting traditional Japanese dishes. The chefs and staff are really friendly, and it's reasonably priced. After visiting Japan last year for the first time, and sampling the cuisine in its home country, I still rate this restaurant as one of my favorite sushi places of all time.

There are no frills at this edge-of-park slope sushi stop. While the food is reminiscent of any overpriced Manhattan sushi, the homey decor and humble pricing reminds us that we are in Brooklyn - and we love that.

When I read "exceptional," I assume a place will be at least decent. My first mistake was going to the bathroom, which reveals the interior of the Kitchen Nightmare. My fiancee ordered the omakase, hoping for the best. I don't think chef Sano from the review was anywhere to be found, because three Chinese guys were back there in what looked liked amateur hour. They were preparing the monkfish liver as part of the omakase (Taro #1 appetizer according to the menu) and were sniffing it, tasting it, and spitting it out right in front of us! As if that weren't enough, the one "chef" asked us if we still wanted the monkfish liver as part of the omakase, stating it wasn't very fresh (like we hadn't just witnessed the horror before). I don't know why we didn't get up and leave right then, except that we were running late and hungry. We couldn't believe the rest of what they served as part of the omakase for what they were charging. We were thankful not to get sick later.
