This place is super funky. Customers are greeted by this hideous green outside wall, the seating areas are full of random, eclectic knick-knacks, and, of course, the sushi menu is vast and DELICIOUS.

I used to live in Sierra Vista and there are 2 good Japanese places around; Tanuki was my favorite. The staff is always friendly, and the sushi actually tastes fresh. I don't think I've ever been disappointed with the food and service there. Definitely worth a visit while you're here!

Great owners,great service, just a great place. I always get sushi and it is the BEST in sierra vista!! My kids love the music. My husband loves the teriyaki chicken. You really can't go wrong with anything you order though. If you don't want to wait at all, get there as soon as it opens.

So my teenaged granddaughters were a bit put off by the plain, box-like exterior. Called it "sketchy", actually. But I forged ahead and they followed. Inside, the first room is very much like an old 50's cafe -- small and homey.The back room, where we ended up, is awesome -- it's like a little museum with shelf-lined walls stuffed with... More

People in this small city are so lucky to have such great, diverse restaurants. Tanuki has wonderful food such as the spicy charbroiled chicken, Tempura shrimp and fresh and delicious sushi. If possible, go for the lunch specials that are a fantastic deal for under $10. Our waiter was also very friendly and informative. Skip the chain restaurants and eat... More

What a pleasant welcoming place to eat. The owner and hostess is so nice to all she greats at her place. The food is fantastic ranging from steak to chicken Japanese dishes. There is something for even the picky diner. The sushi is freshly prepared by a master chef. Enjoy it all, we did.

My family has been coming to Tanuki's for years now and we love it! The tempura always pleases and the gyoza is phenomenal! If you get a craving for delicious Asian or Japanese go to Tanuki's. I will definitely be back.

Best Japanese restaurant in town. Always good service and fast. Their teriyaki beef or chicken is always more than filling. Also, love their sukiyaki when it is cold weather. Sukiyaki served very hot!

Tanking has been around for a long time in Sierra Vista. It always provides a good meal at a fair price. The service is good and the sushi is pretty good. The place that I prefer for Japanese food and Sushi is Hana Tokyo. I like the place better and their sushi/sashimi platter is just plain better.

This hidden gem has delicious sushi and Japanese food at reasonable prices. Our last visit was for our wedding rehearsal dinner. Our friends traveled from afar and we weren't able to come for dinner until 30 minutes before closing time. Although the main lady who works there made it clear our late arrival of a party of 6 was an... More
