Combo restaurants are usually mediocre at best, but this place works. The founder is from New Mexico, which has better Mexican food than Mexico. He also is said to love the far east, especially Japan. Hence, the combo.
The Asparagus Tempura is excellent, as many reviewers have noted. The tempura is a little heavy for my taste, but much lighter than local fried fare.
Asian dumplings, potstickers right on. Wish they would pan sauté them, rather than deep fry, but keep asking, maybe they will.
The best dish is the Tilapia tacos. Order them grilled, not fried. Enough for two or even three people, and lunch the next day.
Nice wine list . The Sauvignon blanc was excellent.
Go early. The place is small and loud. My only complaint, besides the noise, is the outdoor seating. It is in dyer need of an upgrade.

Every time we visit Aiken we eat at Takosushi! No matter how busy they are, they will accommodate whatever size party you have. Be sure to try their tortilla soup, my daughter's favorite!

This is our favorite "go to" restaurants for fish tacos and an eclectic selection of appetizers. The service is always friendly and accomodating PLUS---the food is consistently good.

This is the perfect casual restaurant, small enough to feel cozy and special, and nice enough to take your visitors or meet friends. The service and food is consistently great, and unlike other places of similar vibe/'coolness', the staff at Takosushi don't try to be all exclusive about it.

I've only had the mexican side of the menu so far, but everything I've tried has come out looking and tasting great--be sure to try one of their fusion dishes like mexican burger or green chile squash soup. They really do nail it every time!

Visiting family and picked this based on local recommendations. Good service and a wide selection that keeps the freshest on the menu. I would not look for a rarity but the dishes were consistent and tasty. Try the hot mama for a unique take on sushi.
