I would have never found this place on my own, but I went with some locals. It was a little daunting waiting outside in the winter for a table inside, but once we obtained a table, I understood why this place was so popular. The...More

A friend and I stumbled upon Takahachi when looking for a place to get dinner. We split edamame, peppers, and we both got a roll. Everything was fresh, and the quality of the sushi was exceptional. However, the rolls are a little pricy in comparison...More

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.

I came here thanks to a friend living locally. Apparently good and fresh sushi can be much more expensive in NY, so I take that $90, including 20% tips is a good deal. Waiting time without reservation on Friday night was 10 minutes. The food...More

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

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
