Japanese restaurant with some sushi. Their Tachibana roll is very good and was fresh. Unexpected location. The hours are limited.

If you want delicious food cooked on a Habatchi grill this is your place. But if you want a dinner show with grill tricks you might be disappointed. Our dinners were well prepared and great tasting. The wait service was very attentive. We are not sushi experts but friends tell us Tachibana has good sushi. We would definitely eat here... More

Can't believe the hours are until 10:00 PM and the kitchen closes at 9:30 PM I will not be back! Did not try the food because the kitchen was closed !

I love Japanese food and somehow this out of the way restaurant escaped my attention in the 8 years I've lived in Lexington. Good reviews gave me high hopes as did the quaint appearance of the building from the outside. Two things hit me when I walked into the entryway. First was the old, unkempt appearance of the place. Worn... More

After driving 9 hours and checking into the Marriott Courtyard next door it was nice and convenient to find Tachibana next door. Our steamed dumplings and tempura vegs for our appetizer were piping hot and very tasteful. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her "bento box" as I did my chirashi... both very light, but filling that hit the spot. After seeing... More

My friends and I ALWAYS make a stop at Tachibana when we are in Lexington, and we have been coming here now for nearly 20 years! The food is excellent, especially the sushi and tempura. My only complaint is that the service can be slow when they get really busy, and the decor is getting a little tired. Still, it's... More

We were blown away with the food! Service was quick and attentive. Really some of the best sushi we have had. Price was more than reasonable for the quality of the food. The only compliant we have is that the A/C was not cooling well and it was on the warm side inside the restaurant. I'm sure that this will... More

It was a treat to find good Japanese food in Kentucky. The service was good and it was very fun to sit at a table with the cooktop in the center. We really enjoyed our chef and watching his cooking skills.

Many Japanese restaurants in the US have wacky menus and the taste is not really "Japanese". Tachibana is fairly a decent Japanese restaurant and their menu is something that is recommendable for Japanese visiting the US
