About Me

Chef Taka Maezaki was born and raised in the iconic bustling streets of Tokyo Japan.
Japan taught him both popular authentic and traditional styles of Japanese cuisine. In 2006 his career led him to the US where he completed training and continues to master the art in traditional and fusion styles of Sushi. His contemporary fusion style has definitely earned a reputation for popularity amongst the many different backgrounds the melting pot of Los Angeles has to offer.
Currently Chef Taka shares his craft with others teaching cooking classes and providing a private chef experience on the West Coast. He can also be spotted behind the table at the newest boutique Sushi house Umeda restaurant on Melrose. No hiding behind a glass showcase here, Chef Taka’s knife skills are upfront and personal as you watch him slice each incredible bite.
With over 10 years behind him, Chef Taka provides a new experience where traditional Japanese food is infused with fun and all “Handrolled” into one!

  • We were looking to do something different for Valentine’s Day - a holiday that is often underwhelming at most restaurants and Chef Taka completely blew us away. His food was on par, if not better, than most high end Japanese restaurants in LA. Quality ingredients, beautiful presentation and very knowledgeable of his craft. On top of everything, Chef Taka was extremely personable which further added to an incredible experience. Cleanup was top notch, leaving us with a space just as it was when he arrived. I would highly recommend Chef Taka for your next meal.

The fish was so fresh and he choose such a delicious variety of different kinds. We appreciated his attention to detail, patience with instruction, and conscientious work. We would highly recommend Chef Taka!

  • Chef Takamasa was great! The sushi tasted delicious , it was fresh, he was a very good teacher but he was also warm and kept the energy up as this was for my husband 34th birthday party! We couldnt have asked for a more fun, learning & delicious experience.
