Had dinner w/ my wife not too long ago, tucked away but worth the find. Very nice place, with lots to chose from. Had some sushi, miso soup, noodles and more. It was all very good. Very good service too.

Since discovering this place a few years ago, my son and I make a point to visit here every time we're back in the Buffalo area. Attentive service and the freshest tasting sushi/sashimi. You won't be disappointed!

First time here was over 4 months ago, the server knew us as soon as we walked in and the place has steady business. Attentive but not overbearing. The menu is solid but I love the Ramen selection and Miso. Must visit.

We went for dinner, we had spring rolls, tempura shrimp roll, salmon and everything was wow! Really good quality food for a fair price. Well served, good food amount.

This was my second visit to the Taisho Bistro on Sheridan Drive in Amherst, NY. This time like the first was most enjoyable. The young wait staff was very friendly, professional, and attentive. Water was served and the drink orders of beer and lemonade were filled and delivered promptly to our table. We both ordered chicken items served with rice... More

Ordered tempura shrimp bento to go with California roll and salad- the ingredients are so fresh you can tell that chief really put his/her heart in the foods. The rice is fresh made either for sushi roll and a bowl of rice ( because sometime there are restaurants use the leftover rice made it for sushi roll ) , especially... More

Excellent food, great service vast selection of sake to choose from. Always a pleasant experience especially with friends. But if you want a quiet meal pick one of the booths.

The decor is nice. The food was ok, but not washoku. I had high hopes for authentic Japanese and it was more fusion. The rice was a bit gummy, the miso soup tasted like it came out of a package (and had carrots in it?!) and instead of Japanese pickles I got kimchi. Personal preference is Japanese-style pickles so I... More

We like Japanese food, so we tried Taisho Bistro on a special occasion mini-vacation from Toronto to Buffalo. We ordered the sashimi/sushi "boat" for 2 as an appetizer for the 3 of us, then individual bento boxes for each of us (we are gluttons for Japanese food ever since we went on vacation to Tokyo 2 years ago). Both the... More

We had the Taisho ramen, Salmon and Fillet Mignon Habachi for mains and octopus balls for starters. The char siu in the ramen was especially good. The interior of the restaurant was very thoughtfully decorated; even the ladies' washroom was pretty! I appreciated the service at this restaurant and would recommend it for a classy night out!
