Found Tanaka via word of mouth from a long time Milton resident. After moving from Chicago, never found a place where I really liked the sushi. Most places deep fry and add cream cheese to everything. Or you get sketchy funky looking raw fish. Ick... No, it's not Nobu, and you aren't on the coast, so this is pretty darn... More

It's a small, quiet restaurant but its packed with flavor. Every time I visit Tanaka I am never disappointed. The quality of the rolls are perfect; the freshness of the ingredients, the size of the rolls, and the taste is dynamite. So the food is good... how about the service? Well you are in luck; the staff is friendly and... More

I recently visited Tanaka a few weeks ago with my family. Everything is so delicious! The place is very small but the food is so good and it is defiantly worth the wait if there is one!

After the great reviews, I tried this place.m a lunch special for $15 with tip is ok, but the value wasn't there. Food was good and place was packed. Slow service though. Tokyo Bay Buffett is a way better deal for the money.

Went here for lunch this past week - 1st visit - and so pleased with the special lunch - I had the Alaskan sushi, with tempura, miso, and small salad. The green tea was delicious, the meal was amazing and the prices were excellent. The service was impeccable. This is a small restaurant in a strip mall and would otherwise... More

I knew when I saw Japanese customers dining at Tanaka that this was a place for authentic Japanese fare. My family and I usually order the excellent sushi but other menu items we have tried are delicious too. At lunch there is always a special which is a good value. But if you think you have tasted good sushi at... More

This little gem is hidden in the way back of a very lonely strip mall off of Alpharetta Highway. Look for the Enterprise Car Rental place then you know you are in the right spot. The food is consistantly fresh and good. They always have a lunch special that will get you out of there under $15, tip included, with... More

Decent Japanese food with acceptable price. I would say there is better Japanese restaurant in Alpharetta but this place is the closest place for business people. They have very limited sitting area so expect long wait line if you cannot make to get here on time. Also, they have weird logic for making food. Sometimes you have to wait for... More

We generally visit Tanaka's for dinner at least once a week. Tanaka's is a small Japanese style restaurant with tables and a small sushi bar. The food is well prepared and very fresh. You can order most any style roll or fish you would like. They also serve wine and beer. There is nothing fancy about Tanaka's. The focus is... More

I went here for lunch and was not disappointed. A very small and quaint location in a rotting market complex area, Tanaka seems to be one of the few things bringing people to this complex. I got the California roll sushi B. 12 pieces of sushi in total and it was great. I would say better comparable or slightly better... More
