I get to Taiko, about 3 to 5 times a year. I started going there about 6 years ago. I have yet to have a bad meal or bad service there. I can say that I do absolutely look forward to my meals there. The food is always fresh, it's served and plated beautifully. There's not one bad thing I... More

It is with a heavy heart that I write this. Taiko was our favorite sushi in the area...and by the area I mean Nashville, Murfreesboro, Lebanon, Knoxville, Smyrna, Livingston, Sparta. We LOVED and I mean LOVED this place. The Cookeville roll was my first and many times, only choice. Recently we dined there and I was appalled. I killed 4... More

I really wanted this experience to be special. I spent three weeks in Asia this summer and was craving some good noodles. In no way was I expecting Tokyo quality ramen, but what I got was a joke. Please for the love of all that is holy stop using those horrifically bad instant noodles. I don't know if Taiko is... More

We love Asian food, but this place was totally forgettable. They have a short menu, and not many choices. What we did get was just ok.

When I order sushi I asked waitress not to put any sauce and they wouldn't make it. I was told chef will not make sushi without a sauce. I wanted my scallop chopped and he wouldn't. Tuna roll without a sauce and answer was no. This will be my first and last visit.

This place has Cookeville's best sushi, hands down. The owners are very friendly, and it's a great place to meet and catch up with old friends. The food is authentic, and the location is great--walking distance from school and close to the square.

I've been here a few times and loved the sushi, but they wouldn't substitute anything for the kids, which was irritating, but livable. The last time I ate there, they brought my water out and there was a squished German cockroach on the lip of my glass!!! The waitress replaced the glass and I lost my appetite. It was obvious...

When I want excellent sushi and don't mind spending a little extra on a night out Taiko is where I go. The atmosphere, food, and staff are always excellent and wait time has always been very reasonable. I also often call in a lunch order and it is always ready within 10 minutes. I would frequent it more often if... More
