An Amstelveen classic

Tanuki has been there for years and is a fine option for Japanese food. Make a reservation because it can get busy. Food is good, sushi quite nice. Restaurant looks better when you're inside.

I ate here several times and the food was fine; really simple rolls, nothing surprising, but fairly good. Until today when I made a reservation, arrived on time and they told me to wait at the bar... Where there was no room for four people. So we had to wait outside, in the cold for 20 minutes, because the restaurant... More

If you are fed up with all you can eat restaurants you should definitely go to this restaurant in Amstelveen. Every dish is nicely presented. A pretty picture and delicious dishes. The prices are quite nice. You can order a set menu or a la carte. Highly recommend the Miso soup and sashimi.

As always, Tanuki provided for an evening of excellent food of very high standard. I had made a reservation for the "Japanese table" far in advance so it was a real disappointment that when we came jn, we were told that "one would be available in 15 to 30 minutes" and that one actually came available after 45 minutes -...

Great food, good service and suitable for families with younger children. The food from the grill is unforgettable, it will make you come back for more.

I have been coming for a long time to Tanuki. The only disappointment ever was that it was full, the food is good and tasty. Recommended

Tanuki does not only have a great menu to offer but also has a very cozy feeling attached. Together, these made our special evening even more special. Enjoyed the food, service and the place.

A couple times a year we have a really nice and tasty meal in this lovely establishment. One minor thing is they don't serve a good cup of Coffee. Food is a real big plus

Tucked away behind the Stadshart shopping centre, this is a little Japanese gem. The design reminds me of the typical small establishments my colleagues took me to in Tokyo. The menu is broad, including not only sushi and teriyaki, but also kushiyaki for example. Of late, I've been there both for a sushi lunch and a kushiyaki dinner. Both were... More
