While they don't cook in front of you like other larger Hibachi grills, this restaurant is still absolutely amazing! I live here locally & my boyfriend & I eat here at least once a month if not more. I prefer to visit in the off season because this is a very small dinning area tucked away in a shopping center.... More

You will not find sushi like this anywhere else on the Outer Banks. The value is excellent as well. The atmosphere might not be the best, but they make up for it with the food.

My wife is a big fan of sushi while I'm not so much. We go frequently and the food choices are the same as most sushi places we've been. It's always good and the service is excellent but it's typical of what you'd find at any sushi bar. Glad it's there though since my wife loves it and it's close... More

My staple go to items: edamame and spicy tuna roll....both were very good here. The house salad wasn't the best since it was made with iceberg lettuce, but it was fresh. The green tea ice cream was good. The prices were very reasonable for being in a tourist town. $6 spicy tuna roll. I would go here again for sushi... More

We are vacationing on the Outer Banks and wanted sushi. We wanted to eat at the beach house so contacted the Taiko to see if they had take out available. They did! We ordered a large variety of sushi, sashimi, and rolls. The food was available for pickup at the time they stated. My husband said it was the best... More

We stop at Taiko nearly every year we go to Nags Head and it has consistently been a good experience. It's very reasonably priced for the area, high quality and the service is just fine. I've only had good experiences and it appears that most others feel the same way. The only major drawback that I see is it is... More

Our little girl requested asian so we checked TA to see what was in Nags Head. Taiko was a great experience. The food was excellent and the server was knowledgeable and kind (nice when you have 4 little ones). Try the Hungry roll.

I have seldom found Asian Cuisine, totally awful. Till now. This is most certainly the 2nd worse dinning experience I have had to endure in 15 years. Its hard to find a starting point. Sooo lets go from scratch the service acted as if they did not want us there and the food took well over n hour. The sushi... More
