Very good quality Japanese restaurant. Sushi and Sashimi is fresh and well presented. I like their menu sets as they offer better value than the a la carte.

They serve fresh sashimi and sushi dishes that will please discriminating Japanese food lovers. Situated on the second floor of the building, this eatery is definitely a good place to check out. My only complaint is that they don't accept reservation for less than 6 people and during meal times they are almost always packed. Therefore, one can expect to wait before being seated. For impatient customers, there is a decent Chinese restaurant on the first floor.

While I have to be honest. I love sushi so I usually go to Sushi On in Fair Oaks because it is an all-you-can-eat buffet with good sushi for a great price. But once in a while I like to splurge and get some great sushi. That is when I go to Tachibana. Probably the best sushi in Northern Virginia if not McLean. And, while it will cost me much more than going to Sushi On sometimes it is worth it. Kinda like going to a high end steakhouse as opposed to going to Outback.

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.
