Diner Reviews
  • "Server was inattentive, slow, and had an attitude."

  • "We enjoyed to food. Ordered too much since it all sounded great. Server was attentive and very helpful. Hope they are successful."

  • "The food was excellent and very unique. The service was impeccable. I highly recommend it for casual lunch or dinner. However, we dined there prior to a show at the Fox and the temperature in the restaurant was stifling. We were dressed for the Fox, but not in formal wear. It was difficult to enjoy the dinner due to the heat and humidity. The casual atmosphere included having doors and windows open for a hot June day in Atlanta. While they had ceiling fans, it wasn't enough to cool the restaurant to make it more suitable for fine dining."

  • "Fun menu and Restaurant! They do need a Sign out front, No one can tell who or where the Restaurant is located. On a Major Road and Missing out on all the signage for new customers to enjoy. :-)"

  • "Another reviewer used the term, "oddly surly" to describe their waiter, and I can't help but wonder if that's a theme. We were seated promptly in a half empty restaurant, but our server took 15 minutes to take our drink order. Then another 20 minutes to bring it to us, minus one person's drink that never arrived. We ordered a couple appetizers at the same time as our drinks, and those came 20 minutes after the drinks. Eventually after we'd been seated over an hour, never been given the chance to place a food order, and watched our waiter glance at our empty glasses, then pour water for the table past us, we paid and left. To top it off, the waiter confronted me about why I had a dirty look on my face and told me he was just doing his best."

  • "Brought a large group here. The food was really good but the service was pretty uneven. Our primary server was fairly efficient but oddly surly."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The food was great, as was the service. The only negative was the noise level - hard to have a nice conversation, because it was so noisy in there!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Sweet potatoe fries and sesame fries are AMAZING, the tacos, and the (I'm going to say this/spell this all wrong) bip n bop or bipim? You get it. Grapefruit margarita was pretty good. Definitely great for hanging out and trying something new."

  • "Had nice pre Fox Theater dinner here. 6 PM reservations. Place was not crowded but was filling up after we left. Beautiful April Atlanta evening so we sat in an area with open air. Very nice casual place. Good service and nicely paced. Very interesting food with Korean/Mexican fusion. Our group of 6 pretty much stayed with the taco choices then filled in with Korean sides (kimchi and bean sprouts). All very good. KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) tacos very good. Queso was good. Watch the pickled hot peppers - good but sweat inducing. Ladies had margaritas which they reported were very good. Saturday special -$5 Miller Lite pitchers - so you know how the guys went. Reasonably priced choice for Midtown dining. Good pre - Fox choice."

  • "The food, ambiance & service are amazing. Parking is easy as well. I will be back.....but with fewer people. I took a group of 16 people for Trivia Night. I was told when I called to confirm reservations that for groups over 6 - there are no separate checks. I asked if multiple cards were an issue & told no. The check was separated by seat, which made it significantly easier - but when gathering cards, the server told me that she was only able to run cards FOR THE SAME AMOUNT! I'm sorry - what? Luckily - I happened to have the Square app. So I was able to swipe credit cards ON MY PHONE for different amounts and pay Takorea with 1 card. This is rather sad and EXTREMELY inconvenient."

  • "We were so excited to visit this restaurant! The atmosphere looked great...it is open all afternoon...the menu looks GREAT! Sadly, the actual food was not very good. The ambitious menu items were not prepared correctly. This restaurant needs a real chef to succeed."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "The tacos were amazing (especially the portabello one, and I don't even like mushrooms!). The have pretty good drink specials. We had margaritas and they were excellent. The dessert looked better than it tasted, but it definitely hit our sweet tooth. But again, the tacos! Wow! We'll be back...with a bunch of our friends."

  • "I was picking out the restaurant for its unique menu that seemed to be full of interesting choices, especially for my date who's a Vegetarian. And I was not disappointed! The restaurant's ambience is refreshingly original - much light, many colors, and creatively designed furniture. The food was great, the service prompt (very important for people who - like we did - have concert tickets for afterwards and therefore no time to waste), and the prices reasonable. Next time I'll try out the restaurant's bar section in the basement - maybe for my next birthday party."

  • "ALL of the food was cooked in SOYBEAN OIL and I'm allergic to SOY so the only thing I could eat was steamed rice. Please change to an oil that is NOT a common allergen!!!"

  • "we weren't sure about how we would like the food, but every one of us loved the food, service, drinks, etc. I would highly recommend."

  • "Great for casual get togethers. Interesting drink and food menu. If you go with a group on a Thursday night, be sure to make a reservation as a lot of people come for Trivia."

  • "Great place to catch dinner before a show at The Fox. The food is awesome and unique. I had the Korean beef quesadilla and was pleasantly surprised at good it was. The drinks on the specialty list were definately well worth the price. The service was good. There were other reviews complaining about slow service but we did not experience that. The staff hung out in the back mainly but our waitress did check on us frequently. I'd definately come back."

  • "Food was incredible. I had an original bop, it was fantastic! I wushu could have taken home the leftovers, but we were at a hotel."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Firstly, let me say I love the food here. They have a "fast food" version of Takorea called Hankook Takorea that we take out from all the time. We decided for Valentines day to go to Takorea to get the "real thing". The food is exactly the same. I was allergic to my margarita which has never happened to me before. I loved the deck and thought it would be great to return when the weather was better but our server was a little slow and never checked in on us, he only came when it was time to bring us things or take the next order. I love the food but would rather visit their other restaurant for the same food at a better value."

  • "Combination of Mexican and Korean menu. Enjoyed the food and service. Also you are able to hold a conversation."

  • "Amazing food and atmosphere....we never felt rushed....try the calamari taco! YUM!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "I loved this place. Brings street food to a vibrant sit - down environment. I tried the burrito with spicy chicken and kimchee fried rice. Yum!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food is tasty and reasonably priced, however the service was terrible. Had to flag down a manager to get our check and also to pay our check."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I admit - I was skeptical of Mexican-Korean fusion as an avid fan of both types of cuisine, but Takorea works and it works really well! The wife and I enjoyed the Gogi nachos, a handful of takos, and a bowl of bibim bap. It was all well-spiced, close enough to authentic on all sides to be more than fusion just in name, and unique enough to be in a class all its own! We will definitely be back and are adding this to our recommended spots in Midtown. Our server was amazing but she was a little hard to find at times."

  • "Nice that it is within easy walking distance of Fox Theater. Too bad that they are a bit slow on a busy Friday night for a group of 8. The food was delicious but we almost missed the opening since our food took so long. There also seemed to be a question about which server was suppose to be working with us so we didn't get our order in until late. Part of the problem is that our party arrived in piece meal and they won't seat you until everyone is there. I have never understood this requirement by any restaurant. Why not start the drinks? I would recommend getting the build your own bop but ask for the sauce on the side and then add what you want. It was delicious but too spicy and the other flavors were overwhelmed by the sauce."

  • "Love this restaurant. Great fusion of Korean and Mexican. Fun menu. Tasty choices - but not for the faint of heart - spicy!!!"

  • "Went on a Saturday night at 6:30 before the crowd . Got seated and waited for 15 minutes and finally gave up waiting and flagged a server to ask about getting some water and service. He had no idea who was our server but he brought our water. Waited another 15 minutes and flagged the server that brought our water and told him that no one has taken our order. He ended up being our server for the night because no one was assigned to our table. Wish the hostess hadn't seated us there. The fries, bimibop, and burrito was good. However, the enchiladas was okay. Would I come back here again? Eh, not for the service that we got . I'd much rather drive to Buford hwy to get some real korean food."

  • "This was my choice for my monthly supper club dinner with friends. The menu was appealing. All of the apps were very good, especially the sesame fries, sticky chicky & queso. We all had Takos as entrees & everyone seemed to be please. My pork belly tako was amazing. I loved the pickles. I also had the jalapeno infused Takorita. The first sip was BAM, in your face, throat, stomach HOT, but I found myself ordering another. I like spicy & spicy it was. Desserts were both disappointing - don't waste the calories. Service started extremely slowly, but after we got drinks & ordered apps it improved dramatically. The website says they have valet parking. If they do it's nowhere near the restaurant. There is a $4 lot just south of the restaurant."

  • "I wasn't fond of what i had here... Maybe i'm just not into the kim-chee style of Korean food. I got a dish with several kinds of kim-chee... I thought the kim-chee would be served in several little small dishes, but it was basically all mixed together into a rice dish, which didn't work for me at all. Additionally, most of the food was cold. We ordered the nachos with calamari as an appetizer, and all the ingredients were cold including the calamari. I wasn't impressed with the tacos either. The tortillas didn't seem to be of high or authentic quality. Overall, i wasn't happy with the selection of food or the quality and preparation of the food."
