not a great place. atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. limited menu and quality is average at best. located in shopping center next to bust starbucks coffee and ralphs market. i really think this place is only ok, and there are a lot better sushi bars really close by
Quirky, small, crowded, but incredibly good food and great service. Different menu "cards" every night. the pate is world class. eating outdoors is a treat. but expect to wait, as no reservations accepted
great food..excellent seafood dishes. great desserts.
great wine list and very knowledgeable staff, including busboys
what more could you ask for
no salad bar...just to make a bigger bar area. needs a salad bar
otherwise, the food is standard claim jumper...lots of it, and good tasting. salads and other entrees very good. lots of good soups and appetizers too
Taiko has been an institution in irvine forever. The best spicy tuna in the area. Always crowded, for a reason. Get there early on a Sunday for dinner, and join the "tailgaters." Very fresh sashimi and some very good cooked items.
What a great sushi bar this is. Friendly beyond compare, with great fresh sashimi and a huge selection of unique sushi creations. Ask for the Dr Fish Spicy Sashimi Salad (not on the menu.) Also, the Shrimp Boat is excellent. Wonderful sushi chefs and wait staff. Usually no wait to get to the sushi bar
