The food is prepared by Japanese chef. Need I say more?...
Very popular with groups and families, so it tends to get crowded and noisy. They should cover their walls and ceilings with art/paper to cut down on the sound level.

Went with the family, two small children. They are very accomodating with regards to children and the mess they can make. The food was ready fast, and it was good. We had tempura and sushi, nothing fancy, but good well made food. There were several traditional Japanese dishes on the menu; however, we were in a hankering for sushi and did not venture off course, but diners nearby certainly did. Next time we will go for a noddle bowl or something a little more adventurous.

We had not been to Tachibana in YEARS and after reading all the positive reviews thought we'd venture into McLean for a birthday dinner. Walking into the restaurant it was clear there had been some decline... apparently some pretty significant damage to the roof had caused water damage that caused the management to bring portable A/C units (or something like that) into the foyer of the dining room. The sushi portions were as we remembered... very-very generous.... but the "special sashimi" had a seared tuna that I would strongly recommend against... we're not positive, but we're not feeling well today. :-/

There are (at least) three Japanese restaurants in tiny McLean VA. We really enjoy Tachibana because it is reasonably priced, always busy with authentic Japanese diners, and the service is very gracious. It is large enough that we've never had to wait more than a couple minutes for a table, so we don't even make reservations. But then we tend to go rather early. It is not a swank environment where you need to dress up. There are too many sushi and sashimi choices to mention but my favorite is the spicy crunchy scallop roll!
