My husband and I have been going here for over 8 years. To us it was the best sushi we ever had anywhere.....NO LONGER. We will NEVER go back. Tonight was the straw that broke the camel's back. The last 4 or 5 times were not that good

This is definitely the best Sushi restaurant in town but I have noticed lately that the quality is not what it used to be. Since the economy turned bad, so did the sushi. They dont have the customers they used to and I think the fish is sitting around longer than it used to. They probably think that white people are too stupid to notice. I dont know. My favorite thing is the Spicy Tuna Roll and the Scallop Nigiri. I also love the yellowtail, snapper, flounder, and salmon nigiri but lately these taste very fishy. We used to go once a week but now it's only about once every couple of months. The owner is a grouch unless he is drinking. Sometimes we feel very uncomfortable sitting at the Sushi bar because he is so moody.

I have been going to this restaurant for over 11 years. The quality of the food is the best I ever had. The only issue I have, is the owner. Masato does not stand behind his product. My wife ordered a chicken dish and it came out cold and hard. The owner had the nerve to blame me for the problem, claiming it was my fault that we should have consulted the waitress 1st about the dish. We DID consult her and I know when I am served old, well done, food. I can't stand foreigners who hide behind a cultural wall claiming differences when they have been here for over 20 years. I told Masato that he lost a valued customer, and I will inform all people I know not to eat at his establishment. In todays economy, how could anyone not take any responsibility for there product. All we wanted to do was reorder a new entree. He was forcing us to pay for the bad food. I paid and walked out. I feel very bad about this, however, I can't bring myself to go back. I tried to reason with Masato, but he was UNREASONABLE. I don t recommend anyone to his restaurants: hashiguchi, hashiguchi jr. and teryaki grill on cobb parkway.

Pros: Best Japanese in town

Cons: Rotten owner

.

Not only is the sushi fantastic, but the experience of sitting @ the sushi bar and conversing with Chef Hashiguchi is full of laughter! The patrons are all extremely friendly and I think that it is due to Chef Hashiguchi, sipping sake and joking around with folks. Low key & excellent quality... and the price is right!

Pros: Fresh sushi & sashimi

Cons: selection of more exotic cuts

.

I've been going to Hashiguchi for 16 years. The sushi is always very fresh and tasty, and the sushi bar is friendly and lively. The owner Masato is a masterful and creative sushi chef. The spicy tuna roll is the tastiest I've had anywhere. It's an authentic Japanese place without the glitz and pretense that you find in some of the newer sushi restaurants. They also have a fantastic and extensive lunch menu for around $8. The udon and soba noodles are incredibly deliciious and make a great lunch. The service is very friendly and attentive. Some of the same waitresses have been there as long as I have been going. They've probably been there longer because the restaurant has been there for 25 years. They are doing something right.

I had high expectations for this restaurant because I have heard that a lot of Japanese go eat there. This is only partially true. The Japanese only went for the sushi. There were none in the dining room.

However, my experience on 02-15-2008 left a bad taste in my mouth and I promised myself never to go back. First off, the two of us to a tiny table! It looked and felt like a child's table, for me, an average sized Asian and my big American friend. Only later, when someone canceled were we provided a bigger table. Then, service was bad. The waitress, a young Japanese was never to be found. Sometimes when we needed something and tried to motion to her when she re-appeared from her "hiding place", she would brush us aside. Food was touch and go. The sushi (I had yellowtail and salmon) was fresh and good. Gyoza was horrendous. The ginger sauce for the salad felt watered down (maybe to save costs!). Seafood shrimp and scallop teishoku was ok. Una don was expensive and below average. Asking for additional gari (only a few pieces was given) caused $3 to the added to the bill without warning!

My biggest beef was with the hamachi gama. First of all, they served only half of the cheekbone. You can tell that the full cheekbone would have been ok, but half was a bit miserly! Then, there was the price. It was listed as $8.50 on the regular dinner menu, and on the special dinner menu. However, when the bill came, it was listed as $10. When I ask why that was, the waitress said the price has increased and refused to budge! Even when the manager was called, he sounded angry and upset and refused to budge. He said that the price has increased and blamed the waitress for forgetting to change the price on the menu. After trying to put forward my case that I should have been informed if the price had gone up, I saw that the owner and waitress were stubborn and refused to budge. I paid up but promised myself not to go back. Please be careful if you do!

My boyfriend and I visited Hashiguchi because of the excellent reviews, and the fact that it's Zagat rated. I've eaten sushi for years - in Detroit (my hometown), Boston, Miami, Chicago and San Diego. I love it; I can't get enough. And I especially love QUALITY sushi. Not just fried, American versions (although, this can be good if done well) of this Japanese food. The quality of the fish is very important to me, and that's what Hashiguchi has - quality fish. This isn't a pretentious place you go to be seen, although there seem to be many of these types of sushi places in Atlanta. But if you are looking for good quality fish at a decent price, this is the place to go. Every peice of ngiri was excellent. Many times, I go to get sushi, and find that while MOST of the fish is great, there are one or two pieces that just aren't good, or even bad. But all of the fish here was excellent - the tuna, the salmon, the yellowtail and the eel were all wonderful, flavorful and perfect. We'll be back again.

Pros: Great quality fish

Cons: Ambience, location

I went to Hashiguchi with a large group last night. I ordered a yellowtail/scallion roll and an "atlanta" roll. One bite into the yellowtail, and I was stuck by a sizeable bone! Bravely I tried a second bite and got a second bone! I didn't finish my meal. Another member of our party also had a bone in her sushi. I don't claim to be a sushi expert, but I do know that there should not be any bones in my fish! I eat a good bit of sushi and can say this has NEVER happened to be before, even at the cheap joints. When I told the waitress, she just said "oh, a bone? and that was it. It was not removed from my check until I told them to take it off.

Aside from the bones, the rice was mushy and the rest was just average. Sorry, I won't be going back.

Cons: bones in your sushi!

I can't say enough about how great Hashiguchi is. Simply the best sushi restaurant in Atlanta. The menu is traditional japanese only- no desserts and no americanized sushi rolls, but this is a good thing, because they stick to doing one thing and doing it right. The fish and shellfish quality is amazing, all super fresh and completely odorless. I would recommend any of their sashimi or nigiri, especially the outstanding amaebi- the fried shells are served alongside in the traditional manner. Try the seafood butter yaki too, it was great. There's absolutely nothing bad on the menu!

Pros: huge adjacent parking lot, great service, food quality, hot towels

My job allows me to associate with Japanese co-workers and customers frequently. I visit Japan about twice a year, and entertain visitors from Japan 6-10 times a year. Hashiguchi is my favorite place to take these visitors. They all comment about the high quality of the food and service and that it is the most authenic Japanese restaraunt they have ever eaten at outside of Japan. Ocassionaly some of my Japanese co-workers vist for extended periods and will visit Hashiguchi 3-4 times a week.

Pros: AUTHENCI JAPANESE, GOOD VARITY

Cons: PARKING

I don't know why, but these days there are so many Asian restaurants that serve everything, well, Asian. You've got a Thai place that serves Thai noodles, soups, entrees, then you see a whole section of the menu dedicated to Chinese dishes, then a whole section for sushi. It's great when you want a lot of choice and not necessarily quality, so I don't frequent these types of places much. So when I do find a place that is purely dedicated to ONE cuisine, especially Japanese cuisine, I have to jump at it.

This was my first time at Hashiguchi. I'm not sure if I'll go back, there wasn't anything spectacular to it, but they did have a nice range of Japanese selections particularly in the noodle section which I love. It's definitely a step up from a Ru San's (which i caution people not to frequent). The atmosphere and ambience is true Japanese, there were several Japanese businessmen having a good time at the sushi bar where the chefs were also Japanese. Always good to know that their own people eat there.

Overall, the food was decent, nothing to write home to mom about, but it's not terrible either. The prices are right, and the service was attentive. Good solid sushi and noodles.

This restauraunt is spoiled, so they don't really care about their customers, bad service, long wait, you have to make reservation. Sushi is excellent!

Who the heck knew I would find a Zagat-rated, and well deserving of same, sushi restaurant in a strip mall? I almost couldn't find it. But what a find. The quality of the fish, preparation, presentation... everything about the food has been perfect across multiple dinnertime visits, prompting me to send my compliments to the chef each time. The waitstaff is attentive and observant. I have noted the older waitstaff coaching and guiding the younger ones to pick up cues from patrons. Staff dress is Japanese and traditional. They deserve a grand "hurrah" for providing a level of service that is difficult to find anywhere. The environment is quiet and respectful; this is not for noisemaking kids (including the adult kind). I would take a date or an executive there anytime. Favorite dish off the usual path-- the grilled, salted yellowtail cheek (appetizer), which is big enough to be dinner. Amazing, wonderful place.

Pros: Beyond-excellent food, Beyond-excellent service.

This place is amazing. Probably the freshest, best tasting sushi I have ever had. Very Authentic. Past review was right, I have been to a lot of sushi bars in Atlanta, but the clientele here is probably 50-60% asian, and like the other commenter said, that does mean something. I live in midtown and gladly pass several A-list sushi bars to get to this relatively unknown gem. I highly recommend it to you.

I absolutely loved the quality of this place. It's been a couple of months since I was there, but it is worth the drive up to Windy Hill from Buckhead. I would put it on the level of Toma or Taka in terms of the quality of their fish, and above Harry and Sons. Genki doesn't even come into the same neighborhood.

I like this for lunch more than for dinner, but if you're in Sandy Springs, Marietta or North Buckhead, you can be there in 10 minutes. Then it's a great dinner place.

I can only comment on the lunch since this is one of my favorite, tried and true lunch spot for the past 3 years. I'm commenting today because the sushi quality is even better than ever. It was always terrific to begin with, but now the squid is tastier and memorable. It is deliciously tender. I always feel happy & healthy after eating here. Choices and quality of food are great. Service is quick and attentive. Value for a healthy meal, ~$8. The crowd is usually 50% Japanese- perhaps a sign of its authenticity.

You'll be hard pressed to find a better sushi restaurant in Atlanta. I can't think of a reason to drive to Buckhead for sushi.

Try some unique and authentic appetizers to get a better understanding of Japanese cuisine. Tempora is top notch.

Make reservations if possible for larger groups.

A simple slip of space in a garden-variety shopping center becomes an oasis of repose, with just a few exquisite, small Japanese prints on the wall and the occasional raku pot. Soft Japanese instrumental music pipes…
