Tanuki is a great sushi place even compared to restaurants in major cities. Maggie, the owner, is an amazing hostess with very high standards for food. The restaurant is decorated with a huge number of Japanese knick knacks that are fun and interesting. I highly recommend Tanuki for lunch, dinner, a date, a trip out by yourself, or any other...

I went to Tanuki Sushi today because I was craving sushi, miso soup and some decent hot tea. Not that stuff from Starbucks. Real hot green tea like I used to get in Japan. I was not disappointed with the sushi, which was kind of surprising out here in the high Desert. I lived less than an hour from the... More

We had an excellent lunch here. The teriyaki beef is an excellent cut of beef with larger lean slices of beef than one usually is served. The flavor was excellent. The soft-shell crab (a surprise on the menu) was excellent as well lightly breaded and sauteed. Our service was attentive but not overwhelming which is what good service is. This... More

We stopped in about 11:30 and were seated promptly, given menus and a drink order taken without any waiting. The drinks came shortly but gave us enough time to choose our lunch from the menu. I had one of the "specials' in the box at the top of the page: Tempura vegetables, Teriyaki Chicken and noodles. My husband chose the... More

Tanuki is not to be missed! This is a unique gem in the high desert with authentic Japanese food, prepared by a lovely Japanese family. The sushi chef Joon is amazing to watch, very committed to his craft, and takes great pride in his work. We have been back twice and have always been pleased. Don't miss the decor...it adds... More

I love Joon! He is amazing to watch as he is preparing the sushi. The Las Vegas roll is my absolute favorite and I highly recommend it. The customer service is very welcoming and professional, but not stuffy or pompous. The crystals they have throughout the restaurant are absolutely amazing!

Whenever we crave Japanese cuisine, we head to Tanuki. You can get hamauchi kama, sukiyaki, udon, and other dishes with an authentic preparation. Portions are generous, service friendly, and the food delicious.

I crave Tanuki! This is a neat little restaurant that serves fresh sushi, sashimi and teriyaki. I always order the Las Vegas roll and a California roll. The Las Vegas roll is delicious but I think the California roil could be a little bigger. It is small and you'll need to order 2 of them if you want more than... More
