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.

Sushi is one of my favorite foods in the world, and once you have tried what you consider to be the BEST EVER AROUND, and then you move 90 minutes away, what do you do? YOU STILL DRIVE THERE AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN because the drive is well worth it.

While living in Irvine, we ate here at least once a week for years and years. Now with the drive, it's a more planned occasion, however this is still our very favorite. The sushi chefs are highly trained as are the waitresses in this full service establishment. I can't agree more about what was said about the wait . . YOU DO WAIT, that is part of choosing a great place. I've often said that I wouldn't mind if this were my LAST MEAL. They also service wine and beer.

The title says it all, get there Early or else you'll be waiting for quite some time outside, lets hope its not raining that day. This local sushi restaurant in Irvine California is one of the best around, always full and always leaving you full. The sushi bar is usually packed but their hand rolled sushi is delicious even though the prices aren't the most helpful to a college student such as myself. But what you get, you pay for the quality, and it's worth it. The seating can hold large or small parties but again it's best you call in advance to see how long the wait will be, and get there an hour earlier than you expected to because come evening time the place will be packed. Overall the service is good (so long as you have a seat) and the food is even better!

Though it is a bit pricey, you get what you pay for. The sushi rolls are very delicious. My personal favorite is the dynamite roll which I would recommend if you like spicy foods.

My in-laws love this place, but they are not quite experts on Japanese cuisine. If you like large portions of Americanized Japanese food, this place is for you. They also serve authentic nigiri-zushi, but I have yet to sit at the sushi bar. Taiko is very popular, so expect long waits unless you get there early. Parking can be hard to come by on Friday and Saturday nights. If you order one of the combination plates, dinner should run about $10 to $15 per person plus drinks.

Taiko is a great place to visit in Irvine for authentic Japanese food. For sushi lovers, there is a complete sushi bar where you can sit and watch chefs make your orders right in front of you. The chefs are very skilled and have a few tricks up their sleeves to impress those in front of them. Otherwise, you can sit at regular tables and order from the menu. Everything I can remember tastes great!
