Fatty Tuna with Spring Onion Roll ($6.50)

First off, there is a lack of balance in its flavor, in that the tuna used was inconsistent and some of the rolls had an overwhelming taste of seaweed.  The rice was cold, again disrupting the delicate balance of the dish.  Lastly, there was a clear lack of physical strength put into rolling the sushi, resulting in a brittle structure that easily falls apart.  The tiny air pockets trapped between rice grains also affect the overall taste slightly.  

With that said, the Sushi does score on many other factors, all of which remained consistent with the other dishes I ordered.  The rice used was of good quality (which is precisely why it shouldn't be served cold to demean its taste).  It had just the right amount of stickiness, chewiness and fragrance. it was also seasoned well by the chef(s) to have just the right mix of vinegar, salt and sugar, resulting in the subtle but sophisticated style of smooth, ever-so-slightly sour-sweetness that any properly done sushi rice should have.  The Tuna was also of good quality, with a robust, fatty taste that melts in your mouth and leaves a delicate lingering aftertaste in your mouth.

Firstly, I do not agree that the sushi here is cheap. $2 for a peice of sushi is affordable to some but cannot be considered cheap.

Non the less it was the service that annoyed me the most. We asked for tea, and it did not arrive until we asked for it again 10 minutes after our food arrived.
I added an unagi don to our order which the waitress promtly forgot. I then asked the waitress about the missing item, and told her to cancel it if she had not put in the order. Instead of compling with me, she came back and told me she just put in the order.

The unagi don itslef was terrible. there was no unagi sauce on it at all, and was instead drowned in some kind of savory soup. When I told the servers behind the counter about it, instead of offering to take it back or change it, they began insisting that "many customers like it that way". They then asked if I wanted them to remake it in some other way, but (call me sensitive) I had enough and just wanted to leave.

tacho Sushi has very tasty and fresh sashimi & sushi. Most of their sashimi is skylift from oversea so it price slightly expensive but worth. I have tried their salmon belly sashimi, it is soft, fresh and sweet, this is best sashimi! I have tried another sashimi - Yellow Tail sashimi, it is thickness and fresh. it is taste sweet while i was chewing and I not feel fishy at all.
 

Beside that, their salmon belly sushi and eel spring roll is good. The salmon belly sushi is soft and fresh, eel spring roll is great when both eel and lettuce assorted make perfect double-layers tastle. The other dishes like Curry Lobster Warship, Roasted Salmon with Cod Fish Sushi, Roasted Squid Leg Sushi, Salmon with Soy Sauce Sushi, Roasted Eel Sushi taste good but nothing special, you can get similar taste from other Japanese restaurant.
 
 Their blue fin tuna, it is softy and less sourness. The swordfish is chewing, meat like crispy, has little sweet and quite unique taste.
