Lightly fried salmon and yellowtail topped with tobiko. Avocado and asparagus capped off with seared tuna. Shrimp tempura and spicy tuna beneath a layer of spicy mayo and fresh tuna. These are the Godzilla, ahi tuna, and Sweet Heart rolls, respectively, and they’re all on the chef’s maki menu at newly opened Takohachi.

The sushi joint in Arlington hasn’t been around for very long, but it’s already attracted a flood of rave reviews thanks to the high quality of its simple seafood dishes. The chef’s maki rolls are the most inventive bites on the menu, but if you prefer something a little more traditional, Takohachi has tons of options for you there, too. For instance, bites of one or two-ingredient nigiri are just $1 each all day long. That means you can easily assemble an affordable smorgasbord of seafood bites like mackerel, yellowtail, salmon, and even flying fish caviar. Slightly more complicated classics like California rolls and spicy tuna rolls are also on the menu at Takohachi. Stop in and sit down to taste-test the fare or order ahead for takeout
