Not that I want my wait extended for a table for this amazing spot, but the food and service is excellent and should get praised. An great value for the price. They have weekly specials, which always seem to remain the same, but that might

As a Japanese, I am quite disappointed of their foods' taste. Though services are very nice, their foods taste far worse than real Japanese foods comparing to some other Japanese restaurants on the St. Mark street. I read the review and expected that it would be quite a real, nice Sushi restaurant, but no. The place is kind of too small too. When another customer sat behind me, I couldn't even move my chair an inch. The price is not quite cheap though based on freshness and quality.

I have been going to Takahachi for years. Their service is SUPER friendly (we know the waitstaff by name, they gave us a bottle of plum wine for Christmas, and my sister got a t shirt on her birthday!) and super efficient. I showed up there with a party of 12 for my birthday and our orders were right the first time and arrived quickly. They don't take reservations, but for me, as a regular, they made an exception (which they don't have to do, because they are packed every night!)
Their specials are innovative and reasonably priced, and the portions are generous. They happily accommodate requests for items not on the menu (like special rolls that they're not advertising that evening). If you get in there early, like around 530, you have the place virtually all to yourself; kick back and enjoy some green tea, listen to jazz, and watch the people going by outside while you enjoy the best sushi I've ever found in NYC (and I've lived here all my life).

Pros: clean, prompt and super friendly service, neighborhood feel, good price, generous portions, innovative specials

Cons: gets crowded.

There was quite a wait I had to endure outside to eat here. I wouldn't say it was the greatest sushi, but it wasn't terrible. It was however, extremely cheap and the portions were extremely large. It's a good deal. I would go back.

Very clean. Perfect size portions. Always very fresh and the staff is really friendly. I don't understand why this place would ever get negative reviews. The freshness is always spot-on. It's just not trendy, this place is for real sushi lovers.

Pros: The uni is always super fresh

This place is great! We discovered it a few weeks ago. Which in itself is strange, since I live 1.5 blocks away. I have neglected my favorite sushi joints for this place. The service is good. The sushi/sashimi is fresha nd the portions are nicely sized. The presentation is appealing. Good selection of sake. The deocr is basic Japanese resturantesque. Oh, the early bird special is good, nice variety that selections that work well together. It does get busy there, expect to wait at prime times.

I don't know what these negative faulkers are talking about. Everytime I go to Takahachi, I am always 100% satisfied. I've been there in bad times, good times, through snow and sleet... and at the end of my journey, there is always one thing.... the SUPERMAN ROLL... it completes me.

We read what seemed like enthusiastic reviews and went there tonight only to find after perfectly decent miso soup, the special sushi rolls we ordered were tasteless and the consistency seemed too soft. Though some of the rolls had crunch, if the menu hadn't specified that, we wouldn't have realized there was anything crunchy. The green roll was the most flavorless but the other two were equally undistinguished. Prices are fare. Noise level was a bit high (bad music). We weren't happy with it.

Second to Yama, this is my favorite sushi destination. Although the atmosphere isn't chic or romantic, the food here is great and so is the value. I don't always enjoy spending $100/person for a good sushi meal when I can spend $40/person at Takahatchi. The sushi has always been extremely fresh and tasty. The chilean sea bass appetizer melts in your mouth. Try the fried soft shell crabs also. Add in some sake and you've got the perfect meal. I've never had to wait for a seat and I hope it stays this way!

I grew up in Japan eating sushi all my life and I love takahachi. Their food is always freshly prepared and delicious. Their White Tuna sashimi is superb - it just melt in your mouth. Ambience is not the best, but who cares when you have a great tasting sushi in front of you?

This is a very good Japanese restaurant in the building owned by a friend's father, which is how I came to know it. They have moderate prices, and actually make their their own soy sauce from scratch, and it is delicious. The location isn't great, but the sevice is friendly and they offer wonderful 'big rolls' that are basically supersized rolls stuffed with a variety of fish. Nice atmosphere, very clean and not overly cluttered with cultural brickabrack.

I think Takahachi is great. I've only been there once and got three rolls.. spicy tuna (which was actually spicy and was very tasty), eel avocado (which was great), and the rainbow (which was massive, with yellowtail in the middle and huge pieces of fish around the rice).

The rolls were a great deal and were fresh and good.. highly recommended.

Not bad- but would visit a couple other exceptional places in the hood first. They would be 6 or 7th on my list for sushi. Actually, it seemed like each dish had some kinda drawback. Like the spicy tuna hand rolls were good, but just too chunky and the teriyaki tofu appetizer is good, but bad aftertaste- I dunno, there are so many better places- would prolly not go back.

Everytime I want sushi I come here, at least once a week. Their dishes have creativity that most places never have and the service is personal and great.
