Tadashi invites you to explore Japanese cuisine beyond sushi. Our specialty is Japanese-style seasonal plates, for sharing and pairing with wine or sake. Savor the dishes of Japan and enjoy the harmony of subtle & bold flavors.
Complemented by elaborate chandeliers, provocative murals, onyx stone panels and a golden Buddha statue, the restaurant's deep reds and dark woods bring to mind the pomp and polish of an imagined Hong Kong supper club. But the warm and friendly staff is purely Austin. Despite excessively dark corners, pristine padded booths and high-backed leather chairs, the pretty staff dispels any notion of caste systems with their conversation and genuine enthusiasm for the menu.
Complex and flavorful dishes, such as firecracker shrimp and pork belly steam buns, combine flavors popular in Southeast Asia, Japan, Thailand and other Pacific ports of call. The distinct flavors found in the steak and mushroom dish, sauteed in brown butter and tamari with a lobster zu and seasonal mushrooms, are reason enough to visit. Entrees such as Chilean sea bass glazed in Miso (it melts on your tongue), Peking Duck, and pan seared sea scallops are available for those seeking a full meal.
