Tanakatsu is tucked away on a dreary road but as soon as you step inside you’re transported to a little corner of Japan. It’s a bright, buzzy and welcoming restaurant and the food is really terrific and beautifully presented. I am working my way through...More

I visited with a family member and tried the sushi and Katsu/ Teri -Yaki combos. There was complimentary mint water on the table, the ambience was low lit and non intrusive music playing. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry and...More

I created a TripAdvisor account just so I could leave this review. The service is amazing, food is excellent and very well priced. This is my second time and I'll keep coming back.

Tanakatsu is a beautiful little venue, focusing on katsu, teriyaki, and sushi. The restaurant is pared back, uncluttered and stylish, allowing you to focus on the wonderful things produced by the kitchen. Sushi is expertly prepared, rice is perfectly cooked, curry sauce is deep and...More
