We live near this restaurant and go there fairly often. My family enjoys the sushi rolls and sashimi and I love the teriyaki salmon. Their food is consistently good and the restaurant decor is comfortable and quaint. There's a sushi bar with television if you want to catch the game and I think they have a full bar. The service...

We have a sushi restaurant within walking distance of our home, but we drive to this one because it is THE BEST. We have become regulars and they know what we like. The prices are not cheap, but the quality of the fish is superior and the rolls are amazing. We have tried others in the area, but this is... More

We dropped by on a whim and I had never been there despite living close by. It was a more elaborate restaurant than expected and the service and food was very good. They had big screen TVs going for those who want to see sports. The only oddity was the screaming match between two staff members, one the male sushi... More

We went here recently instead of our fav storefront Chinese restaurant in the same strip mall. This is a small place that looks like it ought to be very good. The staff all appear to be Japanese and the sushi chef seems to handle his work with a bit of flair and speed. I had a bento box but husband... More

It seems reasonable to assume that a wait person who literally repeats an order will get right . Don 't assume anything at Tatsu. After waiting for over an hour, we didn't get what we ordered and the children had nothing. Finally, the wait person took off price of one dinner--the luke warm soup--and offered us free ice cream. When... More

Tatsu Sushi is tucked away in a shopping mall but we had wonderful sushi, tempura and more when we tried it. The servers weren't all that friendly but the food more then made up for it. Yum!

This place has above average sushi. However the prices reflect that by being higher than others in the area. The room is very nice. Sometimes the waitstaff is pushy with the specials. We still dine here twice each month.

We live within walking distance of Tatsu and love the place. The sashimi on a Friday night is melt-in-your-mouth wonderful; Alicia, the waitress, is top notch and whenever any of my family come to visit me on the "left coast" they always tell me they miss me- and the great Sushi place by my home- afterwards.

Do you like rolls with spoiled fish that are mostly rice? The rolls leave a lot to be desired. I have been here on several occasions and have yet to get a decent roll. I give every establishment the benefit of the doubt and will not write one off after just one bad experience. However this place is consistently awful.... More

After having, what I thought was the most amazing sushi rolls in the world, in Hawaii, I was invited to Tatsu by a friend of mine a year or so ago. Not expecting much, I was in absolute shock, that the very best Sushi place is right next door to me - no need to fly to Hawaii! First of,... More
