Our choice for Japanese food in town.

I have dined here four times now and enjoyed every meal. I was born in Tokyo and my Japanese mother raised me on gohan and misoyaki fish with pickles and miso soup. The eclectic decorations and low end furnishings have a certain charm, and the food remains plentiful, authentic and delicious... read more

My husband and I live 130 miles from Sierra Vista, and have to go into town for supplies a few times a year. Our intentions were to eat at another restaurant, but last minute decisions took us to Tanuki. We were greeted warmly by the owner and staff. The food was excellent, the venue was sparkling clean, and we were... More

This one of those most do when visitors or family come to town. The owner is right there to greet you and if anything you need or something is not just right she will make it happen.

I've eaten here twice and had a very good meal each time. The portions are certainly generous and surprisingly authentic. The agedashi tofu was still crisp in places, as it should be, and full of flavor. The vegetable tempura (whether as dinner or with a combination) is served in daunting portions, the batter crisp and light. One clearly does not... More

Unbelievable sushi chef. He brings it in fresh from the Pacific ocean. Maggie, the owner is friendly and kind. Always remembers things about you and is so welcoming for groups or special events. It is a small place but the food is fantastic. You must go there is sushi, you just must.

A very decent restaurant considering the location it is in. I tried their Pork Katsu rice and sashimi. There's no complain regarding their sashimi. Fresh and tender. The portion is generous too. As for the pork katsu, it is a bit disappointing as I felt it was over-fried and the meat is a bit hard and dry. The owner of... More

I've have been here many times. The service is always great and fast. It's one of those great hole in the wall type of places that you must try. Sitting at the bar is probably my favorite place to sit. I love watching them make the sushi and when they interact with you. The owner is so nice to everyone.... More

Rated as one of Arizona's top restaurants, this is the place to go for Sushi and Sashimi. The Ahi Tuna was so fresh. Service is excellent and they really try to please the customer. The owner is a real sweetheart and her Sushi Chefs are excellent. The place is not fancy but the atmosphere is pleasant, clean. Prices are medium,... More

I am originally from Seattle, where there is an abundance of sushi and teriyaki restaurants. I have moderately high standards for a place that has 4 stars. Honestly, I have no idea why this place has more than two stars. I ordered a simple meal, as I am pregnant no sushi for me this time, so I choose chicken yakisoba... More
