The food is awesome!!!! It is super loud and the service can be spotty. I have never had sushi anywhere else in the world with vinegarette before and it is amazing!!!! I also like the posole and the guacamole, although I wish they would stop putting the guacamole in a bowl with shredded lettuce, yuck.

Combo restaurants are usually mediocre at best, but this place works. The founder is from New Mexico, which has better Mexican food than Mexico. He also is said to love the far east, especially Japan. Hence, the combo. The Asparagus Tempura is excellent, as many reviewers have noted. The tempura is a little heavy for my taste, but much lighter... More

Every time we visit Aiken we eat at Takosushi! No matter how busy they are, they will accommodate whatever size party you have. Be sure to try their tortilla soup, my daughter's favorite!

This is our favorite "go to" restaurants for fish tacos and an eclectic selection of appetizers. The service is always friendly and accomodating PLUS---the food is consistently good.

This is the perfect casual restaurant, small enough to feel cozy and special, and nice enough to take your visitors or meet friends. The service and food is consistently great, and unlike other places of similar vibe/'coolness', the staff at Takosushi don't try to be all exclusive about it. I've only had the mexican side of the menu so far,... More

Visiting family and picked this based on local recommendations. Good service and a wide selection that keeps the freshest on the menu. I would not look for a rarity but the dishes were consistent and tasty. Try the hot mama for a unique take on sushi.

An eclectic menu that draws inspiration mostly from Japanese flavors, but also offers a number of Mexican options. Yes, Mexican! And while the combination sounds odd, the sushi was terrific (we didn't try any of the Mexican options). The location on a passage aptly names "The Alley" adds to the intimate feel. We were prompted greeted and seated in the... More

But honestly the combination of Mexican and sushi was startling good. Started off with the loaded nachos, which were top notch. The cocktails were great pours and service was terrific. I can't even remember ( probably the cocktails?) all the sushi we consumed.... but it was excellent!

This place is packed on the weekends & now we know why! Everything we had was delicious! This was our first time here & we weren't sure what to get. After we ordered our appetizers & entrees, we noticed almost every table within eyesight had ordered the tempura asparagus. Must try those next visit! Wait staff was very pleasant &... More
