We have been here several times. The food is amazing, and the prices are a steal. The place is decorated like a posh night club complete with DJ on certain nights. They have a great bar, and the drink menu is limited but impressive. I...More

Taco-oh is one of my favorite places to grab dinner. Food is delicious, place is phenomenal (love the decor) and service is one of the best. Definitely recommend since this place is one of a kind.

The different takes on tacos we saw on their outside menu drew us to choose this restaurant, after walking the streets of San Jose trying to decide where to eat. It is very loud in the restaurant, the music is rap/hip-hop amd you have to...More

Loved the tacos plates with small servings of rice and beans, artfully presented. We tried the fried avocado taco also, which was quite good. The churros for dessert with chocolate sauce were also a nice treat.

Love the big window that fronts First Street as it’s fun to watch downtown street life. Less than a block from the historic California Theater, where we would be attending OperaSan Jose. Street parking a challenge but several close by lots. Staff was pleasant and...More
