Best sushi in Cookeville!

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

I was looking forward to a new sushi place since I started working in the area, so my coworker brought me here. The interior and ambiance is nice, but the food, not so much. I got a California roll, which is the easiest of rolls to make, and the teriyaki chicken (which was in a bowl, with mushy white rice... More

Having just moved to town, I was looking for a sushi place as I eat sushi at least once a week. I can't get enough of the stuff. I have eaten sushi in Japan, France, the UK, and here at home in the US, so trust me when I say that Taiko is up there on the list of worst... More

Food is very good, love the sushi. If its lunchtime they can be so busy it will take a while. In the past the floors have been very sticky, but clean otherwise.

Taiko was a place my family used to enjoy going to because of the delicious food and nice atmosphere. However the past three times we have been a roach has walked across our table. This last time the waitress actually killed it. You'd think something like this would prompt a visit from management, a comp dessert, or something as simple... More

Nice atmosphere, very good sushi, service could have been more attentive. All of the sushi I tried was tasty, fresh tasting and with a nice presentation. Prices were a bit higher than what I'm used to paying in a larger city like Atlanta, Dallas or even Greenville, but I suppose the cost of shipping in fresh sushi grade fish to... More
