Peruvian
Tanta is dedicated to sharing the flavors and culture of Peru with Chicago, serving authentic Peruvian dishes and beverages in an approachable, fun and casual downtown setting. We provide service that is casual yet knowledgeable, genuine and attentive, utilizing locally sourced products and vendors that are sensitive to sustainable farming and fishing.

Tanta has two Chef’s Tables that each seat up to 10 people. These tables are located in our main dining room in between our open kitchen and cebiche bar which allows you and your guests to experience our chefs creating Peruvian cuisine while you dine.

The menu, created by Acurio and Tanta Chicago Chef Jesus Delgado, takes diners on a voyage through Peru via its food. From the Pacific Ocean, through the Andes, to the desert, to the Amazon, Tanta celebrates the diverse landscape and ethnicities that make up Peru’s culture.

Stumbled upon tanta for an impromptu date night and we were very pleased with our experience overall. The food was amazing along with the drinks, we plan to make this a regular spot. We of course had some cebiche and followed that with a curry sauce salmon dish that is to die for.
YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS MEAL

Loved the food and the place. Hadn't been to Tanta since it first opened. While I loved the food the first time, it was way too loud at dinner to have an easy conversation with my dinner partners. This time, I tried lunch. Much quieter. The food and its presentation was just terrific. A great meal and a special birthday present for me!

Food was very good. Service and ambiance were a bit frenetic with noise level impossible to hold a conversation.

Fabulous food with a unique offering. It's a great place to expand your horizons, especially to learn and experience the Asian influence on west coast South American food. Great, attentive service; knowledgeable waitstaff with excellent recommendations for food and wine.

Food, as always, superb. Menu requires some concierge interpretation and guidance by server, which I’ve had great luck with on 3 previous visits. Not this time. Our server was not up to the volume and energy required to help 6 new customers orient to the menu. She was competent but not engaged, which most customers need with Tanya’s innovative menu. Also: NOISY!!

Our greatest motivation is to make our customers feel at ease, so we appreciate your observation, and we get to work on always be prepared to guide and orient our guests with their dinning experience. We're sorry we couldn't change your table. We take note, for the next time we can place you in a quieter area...
