We went for dinner, we had spring rolls, tempura shrimp roll, salmon and everything was wow! Really good quality food for a fair price. Well served, good food amount.

This was my second visit to the Taisho Bistro on Sheridan Drive in Amherst, NY. This time like the first was most enjoyable. The young wait staff was very friendly, professional, and attentive. Water was served and the drink orders of beer and lemonade were filled and delivered promptly to our table. We both ordered chicken items served with rice... More

Ordered tempura shrimp bento to go with California roll and salad- the ingredients are so fresh you can tell that chief really put his/her heart in the foods. The rice is fresh made either for sushi roll and a bowl of rice ( because sometime there are restaurants use the leftover rice made it for sushi roll ) , especially... More

Excellent food, great service vast selection of sake to choose from. Always a pleasant experience especially with friends. But if you want a quiet meal pick one of the booths.

The decor is nice. The food was ok, but not washoku. I had high hopes for authentic Japanese and it was more fusion. The rice was a bit gummy, the miso soup tasted like it came out of a package (and had carrots in it?!) and instead of Japanese pickles I got kimchi. Personal preference is Japanese-style pickles so I... More

We like Japanese food, so we tried Taisho Bistro on a special occasion mini-vacation from Toronto to Buffalo. We ordered the sashimi/sushi "boat" for 2 as an appetizer for the 3 of us, then individual bento boxes for each of us (we are gluttons for Japanese food ever since we went on vacation to Tokyo 2 years ago). Both the... More

We had the Taisho ramen, Salmon and Fillet Mignon Habachi for mains and octopus balls for starters. The char siu in the ramen was especially good. The interior of the restaurant was very thoughtfully decorated; even the ladies' washroom was pretty! I appreciated the service at this restaurant and would recommend it for a classy night out!

Taisho Bistro is one of my favorite sushi restaurants in Buffalo. Their menu is about 10 pages long. They have so many different specialty rolls and Japanese appetizers. Their Dynamite Shrimp is delicious. It's kind of like a creamier & tastier version of Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp. Don't get me wrong, I love Bang Bang Shrimp. I just think... More

Atmosphere clean and tastefully decorated. Seaweed salad tastes great. Some fusion with Chinese and Korean dishes. The Mochi green tea ice cream instantly addicted me. My niece loves the vanilla Mochi ice cream. Nice selection of rolls. Also have Bento boxes on the menu. Not the first Japenese restaurant that I have visited in my local area. The only one... More

My husband and I have been going here since it opened. Food is great and affordable (especially lunch specials). We always end up using the coupon we get with our bill. However, we docked a star because occasionally the wait staff can be 'forgetful' and not check on you...even when the place is not busy. You have to get their... More
