Attention sushi snobs!

Our group of friends comes here year after year. We are picky about sushi and frequent excellent sushi places in MD/DC/VA. This sushi is easily as good as the best sushi we have at home if not better. This year we loved a new appetizer the Tsunami an avocado filled with tuna, salmon, white... read more

As someone who LOVES sushi this place was awesome! The sushi was good and so was the hibachi and spring rolls! Everything was so delicious and the sushi was very filling! A great little place to stop if you're in the mood for some sushi!

We visited Taiko Sushi tonight. We've had a few too many huge portion meals here and wanted something lighter. We were happy with our decision. Efficient , friendly service and high quality sushi. Good edamame and avocado salad starters. Reasonably priced all around. We will return.

Love this place! They have the best sushi on the beach. Go here pretty much once every other week. The wait staff is very friendly. They have hibachi as well and it is good too! If you have room for dessert try the Red Bean Mochi, It is a Jansenapanese ice cream and its very tasty!

Great alternative to pizza, sandwiches, etc. we liked it so much, we went back the next day! The servers (even one that hadn't taken care of us the previous day) recognized and welcomed us. Nice, quiet environment.

Taiko is a great family owned Japanese restaurant with awesome sushi made by friendly chefs. There are lots of choices on the menu, including habachi without the table side fanfare. The soups are good too. They offer beer, wine and of course hot or cold saki. Taiko is clean and well kept. Furnishings are up to date. The place is... More

The sushi was great and there was no wait. If you want sushi then steer clear if the overcrowded hibachi place and make a beeline to Taiko. It was delicious and reasonably priced.
