I've been here 5+ times and I've had a great experience every single time.
I usually only stick to sushi so that's what this review is about.
The sushi is great. It's simple and minimalist. Very Japanese. Exactly what I want at a sushi place!
Plus the fish is always fresh!
If you want classic sushi dishes that are near perfect this is the place. If you only want random deep fried rolls with everything and more... go to a low quality sushi buffet. Sorry this is not the place for you.
Anyway, the prices are reasonable, but the quality of the dishes for sure comes close to way more expensive places like Nobu in Malibu.
The restaurant is pristine, neat, and clean. Very Japanese vibe. Again, exactly what you want from a sushi restaurant.
So to wrap this up, I think TAKASHIN is one of the best sushi restaurants in the desert. I'd give it a 9 out of 10.
Worth checking it out if your in Palm Springs.
P.S. The sushi chefs are Japanese (probably descended from samurai) and I've noticed a lot of the clientele are Japanese so that's a good sign as they say.
I went there last week with some friends and the food and service were good. It was nice to have a new sushi restaurant in town, and I always prefer sushi during the hottest summer days. I was going to meet a friend there Tuesday evening in August at 530pm. When I arrived first, I walked in and asked the white haired gentleman at the podium for a table for two. He grabbed some menus and I followed him into a COMPLETELY EMPTY restaurant. He led me to the farthest corner table against the back wall by the windows, so I said that I would rather sit at one of the COMPLETELY EMPTY BOOTHS that were right there by the window. He then proceed to mansplain about how he couldn't give those tables away in case a party of four showed up. So I asked him how many parties of four he was expecting, and his reply was, "I can't predict the future." So I asked one more time to sit at a north and he said no. I finally said, so your are refusing to let me sit here? He's said yes! I walked out!
BTW I distinctly remeber that when I had been there earlier with a group of four other friends so 5 total, the three booths by the windows were all occupied by couples. Maybe the difference was that they were all white?
Regardless, I cannot condone this sort of treatment and cannot recommend an establishment with such poor customer service.
Having seen this latest sushi restaurant in town, I finally decided to come in. I had a light dinner: edamame, miso soup and a rainbow roll with hot green tea.
It was good.
The environment is calm.
I like the soothing music playing in the background. The staff seems nice and friendly.
The food is good. Sushi like any other but it hit the spot.
I'd recommend it and I'd come again.
Had a decent dinner here tonight. Had some good sushi, excellent soft shell crab tempura, good combo bento box. Very reasonable prices. Service is attentive, but they should tell you what is what in a 6 combo Bento! Veggie tempura needed seasoning, sushi was good, miso good, custard combo not so much. Chicken teriyaki in the bento was overcooked. With a few improvements, they can be a go to place, but for now, do Sandfish down the road instead!
very beautiful space that plays off the menu perfectly. friendly staff, very high quality sushi. I was there after a 115 degree day... bottle of chilled wine a sushi were a good fit to end the evening. I tried the 13 fish bowl... not the easiest to eat as the rice is underneath, but a little piece of art on it's own. Also tried the saba (pickled mackerel) sushi as a starter... perfect. Next time I'll sit in front of the sushi chefs... to enjoy their skill.
