My boyfriend and I went here Saturday night expecting the quality and taste of Takahashi in the east village. Boy were we wrong. Even though supposedly the same owner owns them this one in Tribeca resembles nothing of the amazing Japanese food of Takahachi in the East Village. To start we ordered edemame rock shrimp and aged goyza. The rock shrimp were disappointing. It was over doughy and was oddly sweet. It was also mixed with broccoli. Aged goyza were good, the sauce it came with though didn’t suit it though. For dinner I got the cold mountain roll, it was decent, but far for the best sushi I have had. My boyfriend for the chicken teriyaki, it was below par. The teriyaki sauce was very flavorless. The service was not very good, they all seemed very confused and the atmosphere felt as though we were in some random sushi spot in the suburbs. We also were seated directly next to the coat check. We won’t be going back, it’s a waste of money when you can get such good food close around.

This place is legit. We usually order delivery but recently my wife and I sat at the sushi bar and splurged by allowing the sushi chef to select sushi/sashimi. Quality and freshness are high, presentation is creative with strong attension to detail. The UNI is some of the best i've had in NYC.

By far my favorite sushi place in Manhattan. It's surprisingly cheap for TriBeCa and such fresh, great tasting sushi )and especially the edamae!). I take all my out of town friends here and everyone has always been thrilled by the service and atmosphere.

takahachi's fish is apparently from the same supplier as megu, etc. but this place has sweet and attentive staff without the attitude. sit at the bar - the sushi chefs are very friendly without being obtrusive, and usually clue you in to some pieces you've never heard of...

I'm not sure what Downtowner is talking about. I live in Tribeca and order from Takahachi usually once a week. They always come right to my door. For other people that order from Takahachi, they also get delivery right to their door. I've never heard of them making you meet them on the street. Anyways, the food is great. The fish is fresh, the service is friendly and helpful, and the delivery is timely (and to your door). For appetizers I recommend the Rock Shrimp TEmpura, the Black Cod, and the Sauteed Mushrooms. I often get the the sushi-sashimi combo as my entree, which is a great deal. They also have some wonderful and creative specials everyday.

When you order "delivery" from Takahachi, it's kind of a trick, because they don't actually "deliver" the food to you. They kind of come somewhere nearby in the neighborhood and make you meet them there. Full points for yummy food, so occasionally we overlook their creative definition of service.

OK, so its like being called the tallest midget to be called best sushi downtown, but this place is good- it's nobu good in fish freshness and the staff are the most responsive and friendly of any quality japanese restaurant (where quality can sometimes equal snobby waitstaff). I recommend the hamachi tartare and the sahsimi sushi deluxe platter. Go- you wont be disappointed
