We are sushi lovers and this restaurant has been one of the best ever. We stayed at the Swissotel and we could order room service directly. Price is around $35 per person

The service was excellent, especially Jesus Iparraguirre! The sushi was very fresh and the piano sours were authentic.

If you have ever had real pizza in Italy, hawaiian pizza is not authentic, but good nonetheless. It's the same with Tanoshii. If you've ever had authentic sushi in Japan, this isn't exactly great. But it is very good nonetheless. The ambiance is lovely. The sushi chef was great. The fare was on the creative side as sushi goes, but... More

Like the underwhelmed we came here because of the reviews onTA. But both my wife and I said 5 stars no way. The sushi was just mediocre at best. We had much better Sushi at Noe's. Service was good and the presentation was very nice. If they could only bring the Sushi up a few notches.

We picked this restaurant hoping to have great sushi in Quito. The reviews we read were pretty convincing. Unfortunately, we felt let down. The service was excellent, but the food left much to be desired. Of the sashimi plate, only the red/white tuna felt fresh; the shrimp were overcooked and the salmon wasn't great. (That said, the tuna maki roll... More

Our party of nine was accommodated late (10pm-ish). My husband and I had sushi (one with fried shrimp & tuna, the other w/grilled shrimp, tuna and topped with sweet potato strings). Other than they were a little large to pop the whole piece in your mouth, they were great! The portions were all very generous. We could easily have shared... More

Our hotel recommended Tanoshii over Restaurant Sake when we told them we wanted sushi and we were not disappointed. Located in New Town inside the Swissotel, the restaurant is very elegant but low key. There were 4 of us so we had a vast range os sashimi and rolls and all were very good. Since one of our group does... More
