    Indian Butter Chicken Burrito was really good. HUGE burrito for the price. I could only eat half. Only downside of this place was limited seating. It was busy when we went and had to wait awhile.

    Always make sure to ask what the empanadas are...they change all the time to something always delicious! Just make sure that you don't get a craving on a Monday...that's when they are closed =(
  • Zulkeira R. S.
    The Korean beef and braised beef takos were my favorite! The Thai chicken and specialty shrimp Tako came in second. Very filling! Downside they sold out of empanadas so I didn't get to try

    With tacos, burritos & empanadas on the menu, you'll never have to eat the same thing twice (although you may want to). Their tacos are a MUST try, along with their sauces! www.brinkmagonline.com

    Tako Cheena traffics in an inspiring mishmash of Asian and Latino flavors. Think Chinese barbecue char siu pork belly, Thai peanut chicken, and crispy tofu with Indian yellow curry. Read more

    There is NOTHING on this menu that doesn't ROCK. Not a big seafood fan but the mojo shrimp taco is amazing. Pork belly taco is, hands down, greatest thing since sliced bread. Even tofu choices rule.

    The burritos are from out of this world!! Nine bucks is a great price!! I can only eat half of one, because they are VERY filling and f*cking DELICIOUS!!!

    Delicious tacos. Nicely flavored. Try the pork belly and the cod. Wish they would ditch the plastic forks and plastic cups.

    Arepas all the way. Limited seating (sucks for busy days, but has the comfy vibe on less-crowded days). Cucumber water? :D If it's your first time, do the 3-tacos for under $9.

    There's a new sheriff in town. Teriyaki Chicken Arepa. Oh my Jeebuz! But definitely go for the Tom Yum Mojo Shrimp and Pork Belly tacos. Empanadas are also tasty.

    Don't come here expecting typical Asian or Latin fare! Complex flavors and things you've probably never tried are on this menu, but its all fantastic!
