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.

As I am employed downtown I frequent Takahachi, as often as 2-3 times per week. Staff is attentive and very friendly, prices are more palatable than othe high-end sushi restaurants, specials/variety of daily offerings are more than adequate. If you enjoy sushi and are on a budget go for lunch and get whatever the daily special is, the value compared to other down-town eateries is excelent but for a true dining experience grab the sushi/sashimi for two, $50 for a nice variety/wonderful presentation, much better than many of the others I have had for about $15-$25 less. Fish is always excelent and prepared properly, nice sake and dessert selections, quiet/intimate setting but I see families as well. A great place for a quiet lunch amidst all the madness outside! I recomend the "Taxi Driver" roll. My favourite sushi place yet!

by far the best sushi experience i ever had- but its a whole lotta dough. if you want a good deal get the lunch special. Thats what i did. I went to the original takahachi on Ave. A after i tried this place, but it turned out to be not nearly as good.
