Tanta Ratings and Reviews
From the moment we arrived the place smelled great and the ambience was perfect. The food combines Latin, Chinese and Japanese influences into a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Tanta for a unique and enjoyable dining experience. Can't wait to go back.
Another amazing meal at Tanta! Every dish I've had here (over the course of 2 visits) has been phenomenal. I introduced two more friends to this restaurant tonight, and they were blown away. The cocktails, the small plates, entrees and desserts were simply amazing. I can't wait to come back!
We had such a wonderful time there! Drinks at the bar were delicious and reasonably priced. The Service was outstanding and the staff was very friendly and helpful from the planning stages/reservation all the way through the dinner. Very enjoyable night for all. Thank you Tanta!!
Whether you are a Peruvian food junkie like myself or a first-timer, Tanta will deliver with perfectly prepared, exciting versions of traditional Peruano delights. Definitely get the whole fried fish, lomo saltado, anticucho de pulpo and tiradito Andino. From what I tasted, I do not think that you can go wrong - so explore! I'll be back next summer to experience the rooftop deck for sure.
My 2 scallops were incredibly disappointing as provided to me on a literally bed of rocks, bathed in parmesan soup rather than the foam indicated on the menu. The kitchen closes sharply at 10 and the wait staff were stretched to thin to even come and inquire about the food until it was too late to order something else
We really enjoyed the food which was eclectic and delicious. We ended up ordering two small plates and two large plates for two of us. We were fairly hungry but that was more then we needed and in fact we took one of the large plates home pretty much uneaten. Next time, we'll go with two small plates and share a large. Wait staff was excellent as well, very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. They have a great location near all the action in downtown Chicago. We walked a couple of blocks to a disco club and had a great time dancing off our meal.
Absolutely incredible and authentic tasting Peruvian food with a very classy touch. It was our anniversary and we were welcomed by everyone in the restaurant and even surprised by a couple of glasses of champagne!! Can’t speak highly enough of this place. We’ll be back!!
We were seated right away. 2 folks were missing from our party of four but we were still offered our table. Nice touch. Food was great. The shrimps in my dish were BIG! Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service. A fantastic experience. Definitely coming back!
Every single dish we ordered (whether appetizer or main dish) was so delicious. There were five of us and we ordered different things to share; and then each person ordered their own main dish. Some of the dishes are very abundant. Really delicious; if you are doubting whether to come here or not; do not doubt for a second. You will not be disappointed.
Tanta not only has irresistible food, but good service and a fun and casual approach to the entire experience. We are returning soon with friends. The plantain chips that are placed on the table after you order are to die for! We can't get enough of them. The Peruvian chicken dish is delicious and a huge value. It is more than enough for 4 people. That leaves the appetizers, which are also delicious. We cannot wait to return and try more of them!
This was my third visit in a year (I live 150 miles away). The food is ecstatically good.
Better than its flagship namesake in Lima! Just amazing taste sensations.
The ambience is negatively affected by the high noise level (I would call it "loud,"
not "energetic"). I know it's popular for restaurants to design their space to augment
the sound of diners talking, but it's a huge drawback for anybody over 50.
