On the plus side for many will be portion size. Limited menu. Over seasoned with salt and soya style seasoning. An unimaginative version of stir fry restaurant.

We eat here regularly and it has always been perfectly prepared and delicious. We have ran the menu, tried sides, soups, their shrimp sauce is awesome. It is really good and quite popular. Quick drive through for carry-out pick up.

Was in the area looking for some Japanese and settled on Tamiko. Food was ok but not anything to be excited about. It would have been worth the drive to Bristol for a better Japanese restaurant.
