Taiko Canteen is the home of Zilford’s Fried Chicken, Taiko Taco, & Lucky Putt. We offer a casual family-style dining and drinking experience, alongside 9 holes of mini-golf! What started as a food truck in 2014 with the goal of serving an innovative menu of tasty, bold flavoured foods in a fun and lively setting, has now grown into TAIKO CANTEEN to offer both Taiko Taco and Zilford’s Fried Chicken all day erry’day. We also feature a rotating list of craft beers, fun cocktails and the greatest mini-golf course you can enjoy with a drink in hand. We offer a variety of seating choices, including lounge seating, bar seats, standard table seating, the clubhouse for private events, and 3 seats close enough to the kitchen line that you might be asked to help. TAIKO accepts reservations but always welcomes walk-ins, nomads, adventurers, and those of you who don’t like to plan. The un-restaurant.
First time visit to Taiko, large menu and the food we did try was fantastic. Unfortunately they don’t have any draught beer, but there are lots of canned beer and cocktail options. We waited for 20 minutes before we were actually sat for our reservation…time despite our tables being available. The service was very, very slow, but it really seemed like a staffing issue, our server was friendly and tried her best to accommodate everyone. The mini golf set up is small but pretty fun and good value. Seems like a one time visit sort of place so won’t be in a hurry to come back, but would recommend to others if they can get the service sorted out!More
My son bought dinner for the family and this was such a delicious alternative to regular tacos or traditional Asian food. The meal was delicious, fresh and definitely lots of flavour. We will definitely be ordering or hopefully dining in (once life gets back to…somewhat normal) They’ve also taken on the extra expense of having takeout containers and utensils that are compostable. It may not be a huge expense but more expensive than styrofoam and plastic and that to me is another great reason to support them.
