    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

    Crispy pork dumplings appetizer comes with a soy-based sauce; made my eyes roll in the back of my head. Tuesday is $2 Taco day. The tacos are HUGE, so two is enough. Scrumptious lunch for under $5!!!!

    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.
