Nice decor. Food was average but ok for the price. Menu is way too large. Waiters and bus boys were very nice. But, beware. When we went to pay they asked for ID for the credit card. We didn't have ID, maybe we should have. The manager was

Loud music, decent food. It's fun if you are here in a large group, but not good for a nice, romantic evening.

The food was good. The music was so loud and pretty awful. It would be a much more pleasant dining experience without the techno and base thumping.

We used to live in NYC, now in KS we are visiting some relatives here and decided to go for a restaurant we've never tried. Being Peruvian I chose for Tacu Tacu, because of the name but once there it was loud, the atmosphere was not the appropriate for children but still we decided to stay for the food, we saw the hostess running around, she made us wait to let us know that there was no space for us when there were clearly empty tables. Perhaps it was my pregnancy showing, my 4 year old daughter or my Chinese husband, but we felt rejected and she was not nice. Knowing this I would never recommend this place to anyone.

This place used to be my favorite. They really should work on re-vamping their image if they're hoping to keep the old regulars.Definitely not as fun as it used to be. :(

I was a regular at the lounge but when it started getting ghetto it started going down hill, i had to find somewhere else to go on weekends. all the other regulars took a turn somewhere else.
you cant drink, sing and enjoy yourself without someone pushing u or trying to start a fight for stupid reasons
they dont get searched so watch out you dont come out shot or worse
they have to change there ways extremely , they need to get more strict about who they let in, they need a better crowd coming in

Pros: i gave it one star only because i use to be a regular

.

i can see its been awhile since anyone wrote a review about this place
i started coming here since they first opened , i came here every weekend, never had any complaints
if u go now to the karaoke you'll have to hold on to your bags and make sure u dont bump into anyone cause they'll just want to start a fight, thats how bad it is now
thanks but no thanks i'll find another karaoke place thats not soooooooo ghettoooooooooo

Pros: food and Karaoke songs great

Cons: Karaokee host needs to be friendly & professional

Unfortunately, as much as I enjoy the Pad Thai from here and the menu prices are affordable , I can not give it a rating above average.

I went to Tacu Tacu early Saturday night (5:30 pm ) and the bathrooms were filthy - very dirty. It was very surprising to the decor of the place. The service was decent and the food is good but this place is a hit-or-miss. Service and food can vary day-to-day.

This place has pontential to be very good.

While the rotation could have been tighter (some people got too many songs) I felt Annie was a great host and overall thought the downstairs karaoke luonge was a great place

i remember the the women who cried at tacu. i remember that she was every upset and she was talking to the manager. i also rember her being beyond drunk. im friends with the people who work at tacu and go their all the time. im pretty sure that if she would have made reservations she would not have all her firends sitting all over the lounge. its one cocktail waitress who not only serves you your drinks but also has to run the karaoke machine. alone!!! its not an easy job and im pretty sure that you would be ticked off too if you have drunk people yelling in your face abot a song. some times people need to remember that they are not the only ones thier. if you give her a stack of 80 songs then yeah its gonna take awhile to get to most of them. be realistic pick some of your favorites, one for each person and wait. go back to the bar order another drink. its not the end of the world and karaoke will be here next week. i would get alittle mad too if a coustomer called me a female dog and yelled in my face. its not that serious sweetheart and you need to pick your battles. i go their every thursday friday and saturday. sometimes i sing sometimes i dont get to. but guess what it will be here next wekk when i return. the staff has always been nice to me since the day i walked in. plus.. lets face it they dont do this for free. if you only new how much people get paid in a restaurant maybe cheap people would tip better. your 1 dollar tip for 80 songs is not gonna pay their rent, .
oh yeah and its not the resataurants fault that you lost a present. maybe if you didnt have so much to drink you would have be able to keep track of your belongings. maybe nobody cared about all your yelling and whinning cause they knew you were wasted and couldnt understand what you were saying.

Tacu-Tacu has a pretty decent atmosphere, and the food is alright for what it is... not the best, but not terrible, but the server that we had last night was terrible! She was so terrible that I thought she was new at first.

We were a party of 6 and were seated promptly, but then it took AGES for her to come around to take our drink orders, and then another eternity for her to come around to get our food orders. We all wanted to get appetizers, but thought that it would be midnight by the time she came around to get our food orders so we skipped out. The restaurant was actually pretty dead, maybe a total of 4 tables altogether, so it wasn't like she was ignoring us because she was busy with other tables. (there was another server on as well as two food runners) When our food finally came out, (before our drinks ever arrived at the table) we were all missing side dishes and items that went with our meals. I asked a runner if we could get them brought to the table, and he looked at us, and shrugged his shoulders and walked away!

The worst part of the whole ordeal was the included 20% gratuity for parties of six or more. I hardly felt like tipping so much for such poor service.

Maybe it was just an off night, but honestly as far as service goes, they were definitely lacking.

I'm a big fan of fish, and their salmon morado (sp?) is really good. they serve some plantain chips too which are seasoned lightly with salt (yum). ceviche isn't that good, i've had it better at The Spain Restaurant. Haven't ordered from their Asian side of the menu, but the Latin American side is great.

This place is pretty cool to eat in. Nice seating arrangement for you to take in every visual the spot has to offer. I came twice, once with a couple folks, and the other time with a group of seven. Both times, my friends enjoyed themselves. Strangely enough, thye were playing HIP-HOP music (I listened to Kanye West's ENTIRE second album while eating). The food service took a while (more time than I would considre appropriate), but the food is really decent.

Went here for a birthday party and had a blast. From the waterfall entrance to the tiki-kitch walls of the place, Tacu Tacu is transporting. The bar scene here is lively...even at 8.

Pretty stiff drinks, decent food...but the place is the real draw. Who would've thought they could pull off a Peruvian-Vietnamese thing. A botanical stream runs through the center of the dining room, which is mostly lit by candles.

It's good for groups. A dozen of us were seated after a few minutes. We had privacy-but weren't isolated. There were many clusters of twentysomethings and a few families and couples there too, but I'd recommend this spot for groups.

Bring a cane with you if you plan to go downstairs so you can hook the wannabe lounge lizzards off the karaoke floor.

Our family of four, ranging in age from 17 to 45 went to Maison Saigon Tacu Tacu for a diner. What a nice, warm and cozy restaurant. It has two sections in their menu Peruvian and Vietnamese. Its reflected in decor as well. Two sides are separated by a huge fish tank and a bar. We ordered various appetizers, entrees and deserts. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious. Service was fast and attentive. There was no wait to be seated. Prices were right also. We had very enjoyable evening.

I like the diverse Menu at Tacu Tacu which is split between Mexican and Thai food. It is always busy and the seating is tight, he restroom is the smallest I've seen. The music is always a little loud and staff is fair, but the proces are resonable with good portions. You will not get a lot of attention at the tables, although at the bar they are more professional. After dinner you can head to the downstairs bar for karaoke Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

PROS: Karaoke after dinner.
CONS: Service at dinner is not so good.

Like a previous review, I like the Peruvian side better, but I believe both are exceptionally good (considering the price). And down below at the Lulu Lounge, lot's of fun. Awesome bartenders (JC and AM) and friendly staff.

Good food up top... great combo of Vietnamese and Peuvian food... Atmosphere is perfect for all kinds of people... Dates, groups, parents, kids... Best of all though is the Karaoke in the besement. There are huge couches for you to lounge in, no stage so you can sing right at your seat...

I live in the neighborhood and was a big fan of Tacu-Tacu until a bad delivery experience. I've eaten in the restaurant a few times and definitely prefer the Peruvian side of the menu. Their asian food suffers when compared to the rest of the neighborhood. My roommate and I ordered one night and her meal was wrong. We called and had to argue with the guy for 5 minutes before he agreed to bring over the right food. He brought her a tiny takeout container with 3 shrimp and less than a handful of the noodles that should have come with her meal. It was insulting. Also, the service in the restaurant is SLOOOOWWW but I think that's a Williamsburg-wide problem.
