    I loveee this place! $10 lunch of 2 tacos and sesame fries hits the spot. Cool vibe and music, nice service. Get the beef, kfc, shrimp or fish or any taco. All great. 4.5/5

    Great place, good service, fast and delicious. Tried the Pork Korean taco and the kimchi and loved them. Steamed dumplings have the perfect seasoning and are great starters. Definitely recommend it

    Takorea has tasty, unique food and drinks. It feels very stylish and has a fun atmosphere, the prices are great, and it's a great place to impress out of town guests or just stop by for a quick meal.

    In korean perspective, it's quite yum. I tried beef burritoes, it is close to the traditional korean food. I wanna try pork belly burritoes next time. :)

    Loved their sister restaurant hankook and this is better. The shrimp tacos and the tempura sweet potatoes are my fav. If you low carb get the tacos minus the shell and they make it into a salad free.

    Shrimp takos were my fave, but the Korean pulled pork is also delish! Must-have app? The sweet potatoes! Seriously scrumptious!!

    Lunch special from Monday through Friday until 4 pm: $10 for 2 Takos of your choice, fries, and a soft drink!

    Service can be slow but you must get all the tacos and sesame fries. The pork BBQ taco (I forget the name) is heavenly. I still think Hankook is better, though.

    These Sesame Fries are so good yo mamas face doesn't have a chance. Go ahead & put the baby powder on your hand & set fire to the side of yo mamas face. These fries are that great!

    Try the 9 Veg Falafel - Interesting take on falafel. Has Indian potato chickpea curry sauce with veggies except its with falafel instead of potatoes. Tastes good! #vegetarian

    The birthday dessert is delicious! The sesame fries are alright, the enchiladas were just okay but the tacos were to die for!

    I go to takorea lots, but the host told me I could park on 6th for free- after awful service I go out to my car and find a lovely $35 ticket. Wonderful.

    Amazing! The staff is super nice! If you're a curry fan and don't mind some thing spicy, you've got to try the vegetable curry falafel! Delicious!!

    The sesame fries are great. Def has a good kick too. Sticky chicky kind of tastes like general tsaos chicken but not bad. Didn't like my pork belly taco. KFC taco was pretty good.

    I find the notion of Korean-Mexican fusion compelling but I don't find the typical result very tasty. Read more

    Sesame fries are amazing! We tried the KFC, Belly, Portobello, & Calamari tacos. That were all awesome...

    Belly and KFC are great. Pork doesn't measure up to the same bar (but certainly isn't bad).

    Chicken gogi tacos are delicious. I wish the lychee and Asian pear drink was stronger though!!

    Bibimbap is the only way to go. Get extra hot sauce for an added kick.

    I should have asked for something that wasn't spicy because most things on the menu had Korean red pepper or something spicy including my taco.

    The first few times I've been here, the food was great! However, this time the pork belly was hard and the beef brisket was very dry..
