With my Groupon about to expire I made my way across town to check out Taiga. My experience reminded me why I rarely buy Groupons anymore — the restaurants usually aren’t very good.

The interior is chic and sexy with some really comfortable chairs. That’s pretty much the highlights of the place. The cuts of fish that made up the garlic tuna nigiri were ample, but the quality was poor and stringy. The tuna in the tuna maguro (tuna tuna?) was the same quality. There was plenty of cabbage with the dish but it was drowning in dressing that drowned out the flavors of every other component in the dish. The Tiger roll was the best item we had but still not that memorable.

No matter how good the interior looks or how good the menu might sound the poor quality of the ingredients doomed this place from the beginning. Another Groupon, another disappointing dining experience…
