We have been going to Tachibana for years. The service isn't great, but the amazing food and prices have always made up for it. When we went tonight, we were surprised to see that some of our normal items had almost doubled in price (e.g., from $5.50 to $10.00 for the eel avocado roll). I think it's time to find a new sushi restaurant.

In a region littered with Korean-owned sushi restaurants that never quite get it perfect, Tachibana stands out as a truly authentic Japanese restaurant. It is owned, staffed, and frequented by Japanese. The food is wonderful and fresh; I've never had anything I didn't like. The donburi (rice bowls) in particular are hot, steaming and always delicious.

I am a huge fan of sushi and try to eat it at least once a week. I have been a weekly patron of Tachibana because they are truly authentic and care about thier sushi. The service is good and can be spotty somties, atmosphere is good, do not recommend if you are searching a trendy date place. This is one of the few japanese owned and operated sushi restaurants. I been to and tried every single sushi restaurant in the VA area and nothing else compares when it comes to the quality of the sushi. You will not leave hungry from here.

If you are new to sushi and the various shapes, tastes and forms, then you wold probbaly be better off going to a few other places before coming here. By doing so you will truly appreciate the quality of the food as well as the authentic service. I have never been to Japan but was assured by my friends that this was as close to "the real thing" as they have had in the USA. The quality of the fish is top notch- very fresh, firm and cool. The quality of the sushi chef (inside joke) work is exceptional as is the method by which he goes about putting together the food. This was truly a man who enjoyed all there is about sushi and was happy to share it with others. The rice was excellent as was the quality and amount of vinegar used. The wasabi was hotter than I expected but blame that more on my ignorance than the product itself. We passed on the sake due to travel plans but were told it was a good- not great- value for the price. Overall, a VERY well done experience and not just a meal.
