The food and service was good. The place is really small and had a fishy smell. We almost left because of that but stayed and enjoyed the meal. They gave us a ton of food. Enough for lunch and a to go plate for another meal.

Three of us had lunch at Tan's today. I ordered their special thatI discovered was fried tofu covered with a gooey peanut sauce on a bed of steamed greens decorated with a sliced hard boiled egg. One of my guest ordered a stir fry with shrimp. She didn't eat very much. Our friend ordered a salad which she enjoyed and... More

I ate here here several times from November to March and love the two main beef indonesion dishes. The server has been the same each time and his service is excellent.

This is a tiny little Asian restaurant which if you don't know about, you don't know! Hidden inside the Esposito gardens. I had been here for my B'day lunch after hearing all the great reviews plus we wanted to try something different. The dishes are very flavorful, you can smell the lemon grass and kaffir leaves around. My husband ordered... More

My partner and I decided to try this little asian cafe located next to the Esposito's Garden Center in Tallahassee. I had seen it for a number of years, but was finally prompted to try it after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. We went on a Sunday evening around 6 and it was pretty packed, which doesn't take much... More

Extensive Asian menu means that EVERYONE in your party will find food to be happy ordering. This is a diner-style establishment with kitchen tables and chairs. Bring a seat cushion for comfort, and bring a book to read😆according to a local we talked to, they are usually SO busy that you may be waiting a little while because everything is... More

My sister-in-law and husband suggested going to Tan's Asian Café based on recommendations from co-workers, so my wife and I joined them on a Saturday night in early February, 2014. It is a small place, but we were lucky to get in a bit early and got a booth. Our waiter came by promptly with menus and took our drink... More

Tan's has been consistently rated in the top Asian restaurants in Tallahassee and has been at the top of my list. I don't know what happened tonight. We went early on Friday evening -around 5:45--and it was not busy inside. We ordered appetizers and our meal. The appetizers arrived fairly soon--within 15 minutes--and the spring rolls were crispy, piping hot... More
