Excellent service, everyone was so lovely, sushi was delicious and I really enjoyed the whole experience. Definitely will be back! :)
Amazing food, not only specialities katsu and teriyaki, but sushi and gyoza, too!
The dinner is perfect..everything good...no expensive
Best gyoza, katsu and teriyaki EVER! Will definitely go back on my next trip to London.
This restaurant is amazing! I highly recommend. The ambiance is really good for dinner. Not too busy. And the dim lighting is a really nice touch. The sushi is to die for. Really good value for money. The portions are just right
Very busy when I went hence slower service, no complaints whatsoever about the food though
The food was ok. I tried chicken teriyaki which was too salty, dragon roll which was average and double salmon roll which was quite good. I Also tried the seefood Katia set- it was deep fried but it felt dry and didn’t have any sauce so I didn’t like that dish. I ordered a sake from the menu which was 6£ but what they brought costed 9,90£. Despite the restaurant being half empty, the service was very slow; it took them more than 25 min to bring the starters and Whenever we wanted to order something we had to wait for ages for the waiter to come. Overall can’t say I would recommend or come back.
Exceptional food at reasonable prices. The ambience is good, and the staff are friendly and courteous. Can't ask for more.
It was a birthday warm up celebration. Great food, very good service and super cool place.
Amazing food, great service, wish they would deliver to my area 🙏😊
Amazing food with great portions, good service, not rushed to get off your table despite being busy.
BRILLIANT and AFFORDABLE and WELL PORTIONED.
Cannot recommend enough.
First time dining here, was really happy with the food. Reasonable price and good portion. Will definitely back again!
Great! One of my favourite places in angel/islinton
A little of the main Islington/Clerkenwell drag but so very worth it. The seafood matsu sad excellent, kakifry especially. The pork katsu and chicken teriyaki was also very nice. The katsu is really crunchie and crisp. The tuna tataki was seared well and tasty. If you order the chicken kara age, I hope you're hungry. It's the crispiest outside and tender inside I've had in London. Please just go off you like katsu or teriyaki.
I absolutely love the food. Staffs are great as well.
This place always delivers, always consistent and always delicious!
I had made a reservation, thinking that we would have the table for 2hrs, which is standard. One of our friends had to leave early but the rest of us were staying. One of the staff had seen that we had asked for the bill, assuming that all of us were leaving and had told a large group that had just walked in that they could have our table, because they all wanted to sit together.
When the group realised we weren't leaving they started complaining and hovering by our table because they had been told that we didn't have a booking. We didn't appreciate being stared rushed through the rest of our meal because a staff members messed up....
Tanakatsu was wonderful. I am a vegetarian though, so althoughmy daughter and husband had a lot of choice, I would like to have more vegetarian options, or dishes which could be adapted.
Food was fantastic,
However seating is very " close " together, and it's a very loud place. :)
Chicken Katsu Curry perfect, I can't imagine to have it better however I would use better bigger chunks panco.
Unfortunately, we did order some sushi and it was the worst sushi which I ever eaten in a restaurant, I would say it, it was Ready Meal Supermarket sushi grade, we ware very surprised and disappointed. We did order soft crab roll and spicy tuna. After soft carb sushi, we felt heavy on the stomach, like they used old oil to fry the crab. The other sushi tasted old like from a supermarket in the end of the day.
Also, the end pieces of the tuna rolls ware only rice, this price grade sushi should have all pieces filled with filling, not just rice.
Chicken Katsu Curry 4.8/5
Fantastic katsu and sushi, this is the second time my partner and I have eaten here! 10 out of 10 again.
Amazing Japanese food, really authentic! The tuna tataki is unbelievable and the veg gyosas are delicious too! Will definitely come back
Excellent place with good food and atmosphere. Enjoyed it very much
As always amazing...we come here more or less once a week and have never been disappointed. The food is just gorgeous, always fresh and beautifully presented. We look forward to it every week although we know pretty much everything on the menu. The service is great, all staff is lovely, especially Tanya who's been there almost from the start of this wonderful enterprise. Koko and Joe are fantastic hosts, their hard work paid off as success is now very obvious (Booking a table has become a must!) and going from strength to strength. May this little place continue to prosper in 2020 and many years to come!
I enjoyed my dinner at Tanakatsu with my boyfriend a lot, it was one of the best authentic Japanese restaurants we’ve been to in London for a reasonable price. Thank you to the team at Tanakatsu for welcoming us and attending to our needs. We will definitely be back!
Very good food and service!
Chicken Katsu was very good. Service excellent. A perfect venue for a pre theatre visit.
All servers were lovely, food was stunning, I requested no egg and was immediately offered an alternative of cucumber and avocado which was amazing. Value for money was great too. Would 100% recommend. An absolute gem in London.
Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Good and simple Japanese food.
Lovely Japanese meal in nice surroundings. Food was excellent quality, wine was great accompaniment. Service excellent. Only complaint would be lack of space at table for two but I suppose that made it cosy!
Simple menú but we’ll executed. Lovely atmosphere and really good value for money
Seats too tight
Tables unstable and too close to other tables
Amazing food & great portions - limited menu but everything they do, they do well!
Good value comfort Japanese food (alcohol slightly over-priced in my opinion). Quick, friendly service and would recommend.
Fantastic food and friendly service. The only downside was that I was sat on the bench over the heaters and was very hot throughout the meal.
Meal before Red Shoes ballet at Sadlers Wells Very tasty food and reasonably priced
Yes, I would recommend the restaurant, in fact we are planning to come back here.
Food was amazing!
Great atmostpehere and clearly busy! The menu offers variety for a decent price. I wasn't expecting to enjoy eating here so much and will definately revisit. The Hot Smoked Salmon Soup was delicious, staff friendly, but not intrusive. Well worth the visit.
Lovely food, nice service,
