Description

Summary: Upscale Asian cuisine in a chic setting.

Taiko, an Asian restaurant of the Year 2023, welcomes guests with a metaphorical drumroll into its chic interior, setting the stage for an evening of culinary adventures. The experience begins with a simple snack of cucumber and edamame, followed by well-balanced siu mai of duck, spiced with five-flavor powder, spring onion, and a zesty chili hoisin sauce. A classic in the making, Taiko's perfectly cooked fried turbot with Thai spice sauce is a standout, accompanied by bok choy with lobster and a peanut topping. The cashew soy ice cream offers a creamy, nutty taste with a salty edge, contrasting with the rich dark chocolate mousse, although the sesame filling is somewhat overwhelmed by the bold flavors. Taiko remains a venue where diners can look forward to new additions to its repertoire of Asian culinary adventures.
