We have eaten here for 7 years. We order take out some days and dine in others. We have always had a great experience.
To be honest, I am skeptical about some of the negative reviews below. It may not be the best sushi that I have ever had, but for this area and the price it is a winner.
A great place, delivery no good – I always eat here because the food is excellent, but the service is horrible. Honestly I replace this place with Pei Wei and Waza. At least those places have great service and good food.
Last time I ordered food for delivery they messed up and delivered the wrong food. I ordered crispy tofu and they sent me some beef and chicken stuff. When I called to complain I had to go through 4 people until someone understood me. Then she said ok ok I call driver to send you right food. Then they called back saying that the crispy tofu was a little different now, like I don't know the difference between tofu and meat! On top of that they offered no apologies or steps to fix it.
The only time I've gotten good service is the when I come back after I've tipped enormously before hand and get the same waiter. Sigh.
Great Food and Prices – Taipei 1960 in Champion Forest has great food and service. Food is always fresh and employee are always friendly.
best place to have large group gathering, nice food ,excellent price – had a reunion inside the private party room fits more than 20+people. staff were very friendly foods were excellent. we order a mixture of everything in the menu. everthing is well prepared.. the sushi are very fresh and tasteful. A week later i went back with my co worker in a group of 8....this place has not disappoint us at all... keep up the good work...Think this might be the right place for us to have special occasions
Avoid this place at all costs – The last time I was there, we ordered salmon sushi. It looked weeks old, as if it was taken out of the trashcan out back and put on our plate. I asked to speak with the manager, who turned out to be the owner, and she told us that nothing was wrong with it, and they would not replace it.
They didn't even take it off of our bill.
Wonderful experience! – The food was delicious! The restaurant was clean. Nice atmosphere - romantic! The waitstaff was wonderful. I am definitely going back!
Nice Ambiance, Great Prices, Pretty Good Sushi – I just moved to the Spring area, and had been looking for a sushi restaurant with prices that weren't too outrageous. Taipei left a to-go menu on my doorstep one night, so I looked through it and was shocked at their deals (wednesday night 25% off sushi/ happy hour) and their great sushi prices.
We went on a Wednesday night and ordered only off the sushi menu. We ordered 3 signature rolls, and some pieces of salmon sushi, and seaweed salad. The bill came out to around $22 not counting drinks because of their Wednesday night special. The fish is so fresh! The signature rolls were pretty good ,not the best i've had, but the best i've had for the price. The crunchy roll which is usually my favorite, wasn't great, but is inexpensive.
I like the ambience of the restaurant. I think it's a good place for a date. The lights are kept dim and the interior is all shades of deep red. The staff is very friendly, courteous, and attentive.
I've found my new favorite sushi restaurant up here! I recommend going on Wednsday night between 6-10 pm when it's 25% off the sushi menu. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Quoted incorrectly but worth it. – Ordered Delivery from them. Never have ate there before. Placed the delivery at 6 pm and was not delivered till 7, even though i was quoted 30 minutes. The crab Puffs were great, Skewer Beef was cold, but the mongolian beef is FABULOUS. Great flavor. Definately will order again!!
Average...just not impressive. – I eat sushi with my husband at least twice a week. We went to Taipei after a co-worker mentioned this was one of the only places in the area to get both sushi/Chinese food. My husband and i were not very impressed the 1st time we went, but decided to give try them out again. That will probably ber our last, not that it was bad food, but there are too many good places for me to pay for mediocre food. I admit - we are also pretty picky being Chinese and spending 5 years in Japan. After several attempts in this area (PF Chang's opening up recently as well) for Asian fusion, we are going to stick to our favorite - Cafe Empress near Willowbrook Mall.
Very Good!! – This is a great place to get sushi in the 1960 area. I have been to MANY sushi restaurants across Houston and you won't find a sushi place any better. The prices are reasonable, the sushi is fresh, and the staff is very friendly. They have a great happy hour on their sushi from 3-6pm everyday. I highly recommend this place over the others on 1960.
