Very good food, nice service, the best is to order the menu, the restaurant is expensive. Clean and you see the chef preparing the food. I do recommend

A customer took me for lunch here. We took the Bento box of the day, and the food was really very fine, real haute cuisine, japanese way. Even the appetizers are very delicious. Taking the bento box (don't forget there are TWO layers) takes you on a culinary discovery tour of the Japanese kitchen. Very nice, but it comes with... More

The setting is great, the meal was nice, but for 196 euro for 2, we just expected more. When I compare this to Taro in London, the food tasted as good and the price tag was so much lower ... Maybe they work with better quality ingredients, but I don't taste the difference, so I wouldn't visit Tanuki again.

We went for lunch in Bruges and chose Tanuki by chance. It was a very good surprise for us. We could eat very well prepared Japanese dishes there. The service was very efficient and the price was fair.

Only the best Authentic Japanese restaurant in Bruges!! From outside it look nothing special but you need to step inside. Interior is tidy with Japanese-ness with lots of old Japanese antique-ish kitchen cupboards etc. Most of the staff are Japanese but there were 2 non Japanese but also speak Japanese. Their operation behind the kitchen is very Japanese who are... More

The restaurant was beautiful and felt authentic and traditional Japanese. The staff were friendly and helpful in advising on our choice of tea and food. We were able to review the raw ingredients of our tepanyaki and had the most delicious rare beef. Japanese pickles were beautiful too. Although very pricey, this was well worth it!

If we ever visit Bruges again, this place is definetely on the to do list! Really good food in a nice atmosphere. We were there for lunch and had the Bento Box, which contains all kinds of Japanese food - perfect for people who can't decide what to order from the menu or if you want to try something else...
