I prefer the lunch special to dinner at this Tribeca sushi restaurant. Lunch comes with an assortment of side dishes which can be more interesting than the main dish. Dinner was a bit disappointing because three of the things we wanted to order, including one on the list of daily specials, were unavailable. The waiter should have noted this before leaving us 15 minutes to study the menu. Instead we wound up choosing dishes without much thought. Chirashi was well presented, plentiful, fresh, but a letdown when I had readied myself for the special of the evening (uni) which had sold out earlier in the evening. The decor is nice, but the acoustics are pretty bad. One loud group changed the atmosphere of the entire restaurant. Prices were better than average for food of this quality.

We really thought this restaurant will be as great as the one on avenue A (east Village).... but it is not even close! We tried it about 7 times, it started okay, but then it turned to be really poor. we were hoping that if we'll try something else on the menu, i might turn to be good - but it didn't. Tuna roll was not so fresh, the spinach dish (gomaa) is flavor overwhelming. salmon skin roll is subpar too.

While the approach to this restaurant is inviting, ts the food that really gives this place a bad name. The spicy tuna roll was bland and over priced. The "BBQ" short ribs with green and red peppers was was also substandard. The meat was tasteless and salty and too fatty that I could not even chew. The rock shrimp tempura was greasy and heavy. This place was a letdown and we're not going back.

Went for a date the other night, had amazing sushi that melts in your mouth... very fresh (and I've been to almost every sushi place in the city), and not super expensive, but then again, I didn't pay...

So close, yet so far. High hopes for a real sushi place in Tribeca. Although well-meaning, and pleasant in ambiance and service, T-hachi falls in the lower-mid-level category. The true test of any sushiya is the experience at the sushi bar, the sushi chef's attention and timing, and of course the brilliance of the fish. With this as a gauge, many times the chef(s) have become overwhelmed once busy, forgetting the customers who order traditionally by the piece, one order at a time rather than asking for the sushi deluxe (at the bar no less). Forgetting customers is a severe transgression, After some borderline aji and sake (salmon), and endless waits to be served between pieces while at the bar, we gave up on the in-house experience and switched to ordering maki for home delivery. This is serviceable, but not a great value. So while I had high hopes, Taka-H turns out to be convenient, but middle of the road. In the pantheon of great sushi, TH is somewhere at the middle levels, and there are several floors (with high ceilings) far above.

This is my favorite sushi restaurant! I have been to many others but nothing compares to the food, service and atmosphere!

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the atmosphere is actually very nice inside with some sort of minimalist-Japanese style decor and jazz music playing in the background. Sushi is awesome and service is fast and friendly. Can't really complain about anything; perhaps a bit pricy ($70 for two), but its worth the money.
