The Flemish chef of Tanuki spent some years in Japan getting acquainted with the Japanese kitchen. He now serves a delicious classical kitchen and his specialty is teppanyaki. If you have never eaten Japanese, I would strongly recommend to try the Tsuru menu, which takes...More

Beautifully decorated and cosy place. Very busy. Service was friendly and attentive. A small seaweed appetizer was presented with our tea and was followed by a variety of sushi (16 pieces) and tempura (5 pieces) All very good. Our main meal was the wagyu beef...More

We went to Tanuki as 3 couples. Food: Very good Everything they served (we took suggestion menu) was good, but small in portion and we found it over-priced even considering that some of the ingredients are not easy to find in Europe. Probably it is...More

Superb experience, good food and a real Japanese feel. We booked before we travelled, which is worth doing. We arrived early but they were happy to seat us.

This place is amazing. I am a lover of Japanese food (sushi being my all-time favourite of course) and this place does the Japanese kitchen more than justice. The decor is classical Japanese with an open kitchen. If you order a menu, you get different...More
