We went to Taiko and got seated right away and ordered the Sushi-sashimi Combination For 2. We asked if we could replace the rolls and were told yes as long as the ones we picked were the same price, if not, we would be charged the difference. We said fine and told the waiter our changes, one of which was... More

I have been eating here for almost thirty years. Never disappointed. Whether at a table or at the sushi bar always friendly, prompt service. Try their specials, always good. The freshest sushi anywhere, and a good time at Taiko.

One of the first sushi restaurants in Long Island never fails to satisfy. The best spicy tuna salad ever always begins my meal. We usually get many maki rolls & assorted sushi. The Saki menu is extensive and the chef specials are always excellent.

Consistency is key! Huge maki rolls, nicely sized servings and the freshest ingredients (and now valet parking!) make this our favorite sushi restaurant.

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I wanted sushi and sashimi for New Year's Eve and decided to order take-out from Taiko which turned out to be an excellent idea. In addition to the sushi-sashimi combo, we ordered five different rolls, forgetting that the sushi-sashimi combo would include a roll, and a couple of appetizers and everything was delicious. The sushi... More

I started to go to Taiko when there was only one Japanese restaurant in RVC and they did the trick; has slipped a little in recent years and could use a face lift although the food is still good; the town, however, now has 5 sushi/asian bistro restaurants so the competition is hurting it; the chef's will pretty much make...

This is Rockville Centre's oldest sushi restaurant. It has been a family operated business that for many years was predictably good. In recent years, with the takeover of management by the original owner's son, both very genial hosts, the food, and especially the service, have changed... and not for the better. I have been going to this restaurant for quite... More

Went on Father's Day and it was a great choice. I first reviewed Taiko positively in 2010 and the experience is even better now.. The place seems brighter and more electric. The sushi is still the best on Long Island. They have some recent additions to the wait staff and they are friendly and helpful
