“Kind of Japanese food”
Reviewed 7 February 2011

This is a kind of Japanese food that has been changed to suit western palates. In general it was tasty and the service (over)attentive. The prices are high for a non-hatted suburban restaurant, however when they pressured the kids to order dessert and brought out a dessert which had obviously gone off and blamed it on the fridge/new flavours etc, we knew it was time to leave and never come back. Such a shame as it used to be reliably better.

“Not a bad restaurant for quiet Lane Cove...”
Reviewed 8 March 2010

Not a bad restaurant for quiet Lane Cove. Food is great, however services on a busy night is terrible. The interior us tired and old and the air conditioning dies nit work properly. Price is on the high side for what it is. Would do much better if it's in a better location and the interior is more inviting.

“Surprisingly cozy and intimate”
Reviewed 17 October 2009

Located at the Lane Cove shops, Taiki Japanese Seafood Restaurant is well placed next to council car parks or street car spaces, that are free after 6pm. Visited with my girlfriend last year after work. In its neatly decorated, subdued atmosphere Taiki, which means "big tree" in Japanese.

There are few insteresting dishes, like the sake teriyaki salmon, and the thousands of different sushi and sashimi selections prepared by Yoshiki Fukonaga, the head chef. Good Japanesee draft beer at erasonable prices!
