Taiko has consistently served wholesome, healthy, reasonably priced Japanese food for as long as I have lived in LA (10 years). I wish I lived closer as I would go at least 3x a week. Some of my faves are the udon, soba, and bento boxes. The food is authentic, not your usual stripmall fast food Japanese. It's truly a neighborhood gem.

we've been taiko customers for years. there are many delicious choices, it's child-friendly but there are private booths if you want to be sequestered.
the variety on the menu--sushi but also udon or soba noodles, tempura, donburi (rice bowls), salads--means that even people who don't like sushi will have appealing options. the sushi is very good, if not necessarily outstanding. and if you're on a budget, you can find plenty of very reasonable choices.
