Four of us went to see a show and were looking or dinner afterward. We walked over to Takahachi and got a table within a few minutes. Sushi was fresh and prices were reasonable. Would highly recommend if you are in the neighborhood and looking...More

My favorite sushi place of all-time (aside from that place in Tribeca that is super pricey and where I once ate roe with gold slivers). The rolls are great. The chirashi is bountiful.

Friendly, attentive service. Solid sushi (although some bites are a bit on the large size for my mouth) with a few unique twists. It's a local favorite and is usually buzzing throughout the week.

Casual place, but super delicious. Be prepared to wait for a table, but it's worth it! Spicy tuna tartare was incredible.

The quality of the sushi here is very good. The sushi is so fresh and the price is reasonable. With the exception of the price it reminded me of eating sushi in Japan.

It's always a good sign when a restaurant is heaving with locals. Takahachi on Avenue A in LES just north of East Houston is such a place. Couples, hipsters, families mix comfortably. The atmosphere is noisy and buzzing with action as the chefs prepare sushi,...More

Loved it! Try the Dragon roll. Another must try is the tuna sushi with jalapeno. We had the hot and cold sake with our meal (yes! we love Sake!). Just about everything on the menu is good - can't really go wrong with any choice....More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
