    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    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.

    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

    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.
