I can't believe the people who write one star. When you read their reviews, you can tell they are not cultured.\r
Nor are they accurate about pricing. \r
The pricing is not cheap, the sushi is always fresh, that is the number one

Taiko is the best and most consistent sushi I have ever had! The sushi chefs have been there forever and the line is always long for a reason! I live in San Diego and have had sushi all over the west coast and this is as good as it gets!

Taiko has THE best sushi available from their sushi bar. And the price is very reasonable for the taste.
Now, if you're sitting at the tables, it's a different story. Sushi doesn't taste as good all of a sudden. If you're not sitting at the sushi bar, try other Japanese restaurants that offers more choices in their menu.

ginsberg75 obviously doesn't know sushi that well since all that was familiar to him was a crunchy roll. If you know sushi you that amateurs only go for California rolls and crunchy rolls. He was correct in describing the decorations though, it looks very old fashion, but the sushi is supreme. The sushi is not two expensive (two pieces of toro for $8) and the sushi chefs are the real deal. The service is great and the amount of sushi they give you is monstrous compared to most sushi joints. Their spicy tuna hand rolls look like ice cream cones and taste amazing. They don't take call-in reservations so prepare to wait a little for a spot at the sushi bar if that's what you are planning on. I haven't been to Ango TEI but I have been to the other sushi places rated above Taiko and I will tell you right now that Taiko should be at least rated 2nd if not 1st.

Cons: Waiting for a seat at the bar

i usually eat around the corner from this Taiko place to get cheap but good chinese food (especially beef noodle soup) but i one day i decided to give it a shot since i always see loads of people waiting for a seat. boy, was that a mistake. first off, the decor is so dated i felt like i was in the 70's and mr. miyagi was gonna jump out any minute. the food was dated too. the prices are cheap but you know that saying? you get what you paid for? well this is pretty much true here. the only thing remotely familiar to me in terms of quality was the crunchy roll. other than that i had to wait almost 10 minutes before i got my bowl of rice that was supposed to come with my entree. my server was ok. she was an older lady like most of the waitresses there... they've probably all been working there since the 70's. on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best this place it a 3. the only reason it's not any lower is that it's cheap... good for starving college students (but nothing i'd feed my own children) and because it's it's right next door to the new Yogurtland (which my wife loves to death).

may be 10 20 year ago this place was a great innovation -- great setting, great price, great food... ok, may be not great food. but you would have to be hard pressed to want to go here these days (it's never been updated). the long line is pretty much for the sushi bar, not the dinning table, but the place is packed every night. i just don't understand it. i go there just so i can eat a head of lettuce in one sitting (my vegetable intake). try to avoid the "combi" sets with sashimi, unless you feel like chewing unflavored rubber. the tempura is subpar and teriyaki beef is tough. despite all of this negativity, I do think you need to go there once in your lifetime. this place is an Irvine institution -- deserving of your appearance and patronage at once, just once.

I have eatern here more than once and each time I have been dissapointed. First of all, I KNOW japanese food. I have lived and worked in Japan, and this restaurant comes nowhere close to authenticity. It serves the average tempura and teriyaki sets, and even these are lacking in taste and texture. The prices are much too high; there are many other Japanese restaurants in OC where you can find the same food, for the same price, yet feel satisfied or even ecstatic upon leaving. Unfortunately, people line up outside this restaurant during lunch, and even at dinner, and every time I see it I almost get angry that people are wasting their time at a sub-par restaurant and not experiencing true Japanese deliciousness. If you want atmosphere, taste, price, location, authenticity, or have any other preference, there are several other Japanese restaurants which will meet these criteria, each with their own specific characteristics. TAIKO is deficient in ALL of them. The only good thing about this restaurant is that it is located NEXT TO SOME DELICIOUS CHINESE RESTAURANTS- so keep walking in the center and pick one of these, or try a good Japanese restaurant (all within a 5 or 10 minutes drive)

Pros: in irvine, so there are lots of other Asian restaurants to choose over taiko

Cons: HIGH PRICES, BARELY AVERAGE TASTE, BLAH VARIETY

When Japanese clients come to see me in Orange County, they demand that we go to Taiko in Irvine. Why? Because where else can you get fresh and consistent servings of bluefin toro sashimi or sea scallops so fresh that they are still in the shell? Nowhere else! They also serve exotics such as sea snails, pompano and Japanese sticky potato. But my favorite is the Sweet Shrimp Boat. A sweet shrimp sushi, covered in a ton of fresh crabmeat, with toppings of shaved Bonita and ponzu sauce, some flying fish roe, green onions and dashed with Tabasco sauce. Then again I love the fresh abalone (still in the shell until the sushi chef cleans it and slices it into razor thin slices), sautéed in a light butter and panko breadcrumbs served on a bed of mixed greens. Naturally with a sushi bar this good, there is a wait to get in. You should sit at the sushi bar as the best sushi is reserved for the bar.

Okay so..I don't know what's wrong with the people below who say it's "watered down" or "over-hyped" or any of the other stuff. This place is amazing, I drive an hour from Los Angeles to stand in line for an hour just to sit at the sushi bar, that's how much I love it. Admittedly, I've never sat in the dining room so I don't have an opinion on that food, but the sushi that Suzuki-san serves up at the sushi bar is AWESOME. I'm absolutely addicted to this place, and I've had sushi just about everywhere. There's nothing like sitting down to good sushi, chefs who know your name and hook you up, and regs who are more than happy to make suggestions and conversation. You can't find an atmosphere like that at many places along with good food too. Not to mention the awesome prices, that just makes it even better. But if you wanna go somewhere and have sub-par fish that's not all that fresh and pay way too much for it be my guest...it's just less of a line I have to stand it. :)

This is one of the best sushi place i've been to in L.A. I'm asian, i enjoyed eating sushi since 1989. it's one & half hour waiting but you HAVE TO sit in the sushi bar. last time we ordered: uni sashimi, sweet shrimps, yellowtail, salmon, squid, salmon skin & soft-shell crab hand rolls...etc & many more, it's only $80 for 4 people, we were expecting $110.- or above. chef and waitress were polite, price was very good, the fish were fresh & excellent!

After you survive the daily long lines before they open you'll will be able to experience some very good Sushi at a very low price. Large Portions , Friendly Service.

This is a very good restaurant. You get a lot of food for your money, and the food is very fresh. The menus is very extensive and has many interesting items. Go early, because the wait times get pretty crazy. It is worth the wait though. Highly Recommended

Waited 45 minutes to be seated, which would've been acceptable had it been worth it. It was not, this place is extremely overrated. Tea cups smelled very strongly of bleach...making the tea taste like bleach. Food was only so-so. Chicken teriyaki was burnt-tasting...they offer your standard Japanese fare, nothing very special on the dinner menu. Waitress forgot one of our orders too. Overall, terrible experience. The only semi-redeeming thing is the price. Fairly cheap for Japanese food. Even still, NOT WORTH IT. Avoid like the plague!

Recommended best experience to go with long-time customer; you'll get a better experience from it. It is recommended to ask for Ono-san if you sit sushi bar. Ono-san takes time with preparing his food. Suyuki-san, who serves at the end of the sushi bar (on the left) is faster, but usually more generous on his servings. It is also highly recommended that customers take their time ordering while at the sushi bar, and only give the server one or two orders at a time. The freshest material is always the first seating of the sushi bar... meaning that you have to get there early to experience the food.

My wife and I were pretty excited that we could get seats at the Sushi bar this past Sunday. Normally, the restaurant is very crowded. We were told that it was one O.C.'s best sushi restaurant. Being sushi enthusiasts, we were disappointed. The rice was too sticky and packed too tighly. The chef was messy around his work station. Luckily, we the price was reasonable. Between the two of us, we spent about $57 without drinks.

The sashimi are always fresh and they have a wide variety of set menu during lunch and dinner. Their sweet shrimp, fish liver, yellowtail belly and toro are worth a try!! Their staffs are friendly and courteous. Be sure to go there early during weekends as there are always long line and they don't accept resrevations.

Has great tempura and noodles. The sushi and sashimi is so so, not great but nothing to go out of your way for. The major inhibition to go to this place is the fact that they do not accept reservatins so it can often be a long long wait.

Ive been to Taiko probably more than I can count. Yes, the sushi is generally a great deal (they give large portions). But the service needs a lot of improvement - beware of the "free" things they give you - and review your bill afterwards. The ambiance is that of old traditional japanese 70's look on the inside - relaxing though,but not new or hip.

PROS: good sushi

If you go here for sushi, you have to eat at the sushi bar. The quality of the sushi at the sushi bar is a level above what you find in the main room. Beware of the long lines though. You have to go at least an hour early to get seated in the first round, otherwise, you will be waiting more than an hour for diners to leave.

Absolutely get the yellowtail which is the freshest I've tasted in LA.

This Irvine institution has been here for years and even survived a fire. I've been here many a times since childhood and it still has not grown on me. There is usually a wait before they open, like by 4 in the afternoon or something. I think people like the big portioned sushi they serve here. Their prices are reasonable, and they have some interesting "specials" like the special combination no. 4 (it used to be off the menu, I dunno about now). They also have other cooked items like teriyaki, sesame chicken, salmon, and nabeyaki udon. The freshness of their fish is sometimes questionable too, as I've known people to get sick from there over the years. I just feel like the overall taste of the place is a little Americanized for me. Now I am not speaking about the sushi bar as I've rarely eaten there, maybe it's a different experience. I'd say for excellent sushi in Orange County, try Sushi Wasabi in Tustin or Sushi Shibucho. Anyways, that being said, Taiko remains a really popular spot in Irvine fo

The long lines for 20years says it all. Imagine 50 people lined up for a 20person Sushi Bar everyday before they open for lunch or dinner. The reason is simple. Fantastic , Fresh Fish , large portions, low price. The same Sushi Chefs for years.

Ive been going to this restaurant for years now, so I'm used to it when the hostess says, "about 1 hour" for the wait. but its worth it. you can get combination plates for under $15, which usually consists of 3 different types of entrees. also, if you want to substitute something on the combination for something else, you can, its just $2 extra. the california rolls, baked mussels, #4 special and fried calamari are delicious. the teriyaki, tempura entrees are alright, about the same as other japanese restaurants. but from the long list for the sushi bar, im sure the sushi is good. there has to be a reason why there is always a long wait...its a pretty good japanese restaurant.

Though most nights involves long waits, it is quite understandable considering its low price for very decent sushi. I ordered salmon sashimi, and though it's not about quanitity, both quantity and quality were ver satisfying to me. I normally don't order california rolls, but the ones here are extremely delicious. The hot green tea is steaming hot. Overall, the value here for the price paid is well worth the wait!
And the best part is, if you're thirsty for some boba milk tea afterwards or during the wait, Champion Food Store right next door serves the best you can find!!
