Birthday party – I threw a birthday party for my best friend It was great we had dinner upstairs the salmon dishes, rice taste great, service great, the food look great, the host when I first entered the place was professional and friendly the host of the karaoke should learn from her, The watress downstairs were friendly and professional, they set up the place for our b-day bash, had the whole place sing happy bday, my best friend was very happy, the Karaoke songs GREAT!! we party dance, and drink The prices for the drinks were great,My girlfriend and I always attend, but we had some people who never attend this place and they enjoyed the apertizers,drinks and had fun participanting in the Karaoke, I would defintely recommmend this place.!
Unfortunately, as much as I enjoy the Pad Thai from here and the menu prices are affordable , I can not give it a rating above average.
I went to Tacu Tacu early Saturday night (5:30 pm ) and the bathrooms were filthy - very dirty. It was very surprising to the decor of the place. The service was decent and the food is good but this place is a hit-or-miss. Service and food can vary day-to-day.
This place has pontential to be very good.
Lu lu's lounge was worth the trip. – While the rotation could have been tighter (some people got too many songs) I felt Annie was a great host and overall thought the downstairs karaoke luonge was a great place
I was there – i remember the the women who cried at tacu. i remember that she was every upset and she was talking to the manager. i also rember her being beyond drunk. im friends with the people who work at tacu and go their all the time. im pretty sure that if she would have made reservations she would not have all her firends sitting all over the lounge. its one cocktail waitress who not only serves you your drinks but also has to run the karaoke machine. alone!!! its not an easy job and im pretty sure that you would be ticked off too if you have drunk people yelling in your face abot a song. some times people need to remember that they are not the only ones thier. if you give her a stack of 80 songs then yeah its gonna take awhile to get to most of them. be realistic pick some of your favorites, one for each person and wait. go back to the bar order another drink. its not the end of the world and karaoke will be here next week. i would get alittle mad too if a coustomer called me a female dog and yelled in my face. its not that serious sweetheart and you need to pick your battles. i go their every thursday friday and saturday. sometimes i sing sometimes i dont get to. but guess what it will be here next wekk when i return. the staff has always been nice to me since the day i walked in. plus.. lets face it they dont do this for free. if you only new how much people get paid in a restaurant maybe cheap people would tip better. your 1 dollar tip for 80 songs is not gonna pay their rent, .
oh yeah and its not the resataurants fault that you lost a present. maybe if you didnt have so much to drink you would have be able to keep track of your belongings. maybe nobody cared about all your yelling and whinning cause they knew you were wasted and couldnt understand what you were saying.
Prompt seating from bad serivce – Tacu-Tacu has a pretty decent atmosphere, and the food is alright for what it is... not the best, but not terrible, but the server that we had last night was terrible! She was so terrible that I thought she was new at first.
We were a party of 6 and were seated promptly, but then it took AGES for her to come around to take our drink orders, and then another eternity for her to come around to get our food orders. We all wanted to get appetizers, but thought that it would be midnight by the time she came around to get our food orders so we skipped out. The restaurant was actually pretty dead, maybe a total of 4 tables altogether, so it wasn't like she was ignoring us because she was busy with other tables. (there was another server on as well as two food runners) When our food finally came out, (before our drinks ever arrived at the table) we were all missing side dishes and items that went with our meals. I asked a runner if we could get them brought to the table, and he looked at us, and shrugged his shoulders and walked away!
The worst part of the whole ordeal was the included 20% gratuity for parties of six or more. I hardly felt like tipping so much for such poor service.
Maybe it was just an off night, but honestly as far as service goes, they were definitely lacking.
Cozy, Romantic Ambiance – I must say this spot also caters to Peruvian cuisine. One of the best Paella yet!
Definetly first day spot!
Not bad but not great – I had a decent meal at Tacu-Tacu. The service was nice, but I found the food a bit bland. My guests for the evening enjoyed their meals thoroughly, though, so perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing.
Good Food – I'm a big fan of fish, and their salmon morado (sp?) is really good. they serve some plantain chips too which are seasoned lightly with salt (yum). ceviche isn't that good, i've had it better at The Spain Restaurant. Haven't ordered from their Asian side of the menu, but the Latin American side is great.
A nice do-it-all place – This place is pretty cool to eat in. Nice seating arrangement for you to take in every visual the spot has to offer. I came twice, once with a couple folks, and the other time with a group of seven. Both times, my friends enjoyed themselves. Strangely enough, thye were playing HIP-HOP music (I listened to Kanye West's ENTIRE second album while eating). The food service took a while (more time than I would considre appropriate), but the food is really decent.
A fun night out – Went here for a birthday party and had a blast. From the waterfall entrance to the tiki-kitch walls of the place, Tacu Tacu is transporting. The bar scene here is lively...even at 8.
Pretty stiff drinks, decent food...but the place is the real draw. Who would've thought they could pull off a Peruvian-Vietnamese thing. A botanical stream runs through the center of the dining room, which is mostly lit by candles.
It's good for groups. A dozen of us were seated after a few minutes. We had privacy-but weren't isolated. There were many clusters of twentysomethings and a few families and couples there too, but I'd recommend this spot for groups.
Bring a cane with you if you plan to go downstairs so you can hook the wannabe lounge lizzards off the karaoke floor.
