Tachibana serves the freshest, finest seafood around – sushi, sashimi or grilled. The menu is extensive. If you’d like Japanese food or want to learn more about it, you can’t go wrong with the bento “dinner box.” Choose from salmon or yellowtail tuna, and then choose beef or chicken roll. All come with a shrimp(s) and vegetable Tempura, some dumplings, seaweed salad and either sushi or sashimi. I recommend the ala carte option. The Dinner option has an add on of a salad, appetizer and dessert. Unless you can compete with the guy on the TV show, Man against Food, choose the ala carte – it is still a generous portion and I bet you can’t eat it all. Yakitori are also very good for appetizer. There are also other options for sushi, sashimi, rice and noodle dishes. Reservations are recommended – the place is popular and typically packed. It is worth the wait. Servers are all experts, who pay attention to the details, answer questions to guide you through the multitude of choices and help you make decisions that suit your palate. The noise level is generally good, meaning you can talk to your dinner companion across the table without shouting. Japanese and American beer and wine available. Of course warm and cold sake.

This is not your typical high tech flashy restaurant. The decor is crowded and dated but the sushi is amazing!
