My husband and I probably go here twice to three times per month. I know it seems excessive, but when I crave sushi, I only want to go to Tadokoro. They have lots of varieties, my favorites are usually engawa, barracuda, zuke tuna, nodoguro, and...More

I've been to Japan many times, and this is the best sushi I've ever had. Before eating here I never thought I'd have sushi better than what I had at Aki Nori (while Aki was still there). This is simply the best. Don't let the...More

We could have used a bit of explanation from the servers since it was our first time there and it takes a few minutes to get oriented. There's a paper sheet that you write on to give to server with how many pieces and rolls...More

I live in Japan and when traveling, if staying longer than a few days, try to eat at least once at each town's "best" sushi place or two. Tadokoro is very good, and I think the 4.5 rating is pretty reasonable. The basic sushi was...More

Sushi Tadokoro is an incredibly good sushi restaurant, maybe the best Edo-mae style sushi restaurant in the county. It stacks up favorably with the best I've had in NYC, LA and even Tokyo. It is hard to describe what makes a sushi restaurant great, better...More

One of the best sushi in the States. Frankly, this sushi is real, not Americanized. The only reason it is not excellence is that they cannot get the local sea urchin anymore. I visited here 4 years ago and had the best sea urchin in...More

Awesome sushi. The sea urchin is the best. We got the Omatase selection and it was outstanding. The sashimi was fresh, the rolls were yummy. Had to order seconds and thirds. Must try if you like good and authentic sushi.

My wife and I eat here regularly, challenging the owner to provide a variety, although repeating favorites as well. They are experts at obtaining seasonal fish, most recently the Mackerel Pike (see the picture). Moist fatty meat and then the bone fried and entirely edible....More
