It was pretty empty and they didn't have 90% of the dishes of the menu. They didn't tell us about the menu availability until we were ready to order and after having drinks on the table (approximately 20 mins after we arrived). Very disappointing.

Very good and I believe authentic although I am not Asian but I got filled with very few courses which is unusual for me. Very good food for good price

Cute, decent sushi but very overpriced for the proportions. We were actually surprised when they brought out our food to see how small the rolls were.

Foods were ok. Same for drinks. Nothing special. Was very noisy and the entire place smelled like foods. After dinner we had to go home to change cloths because the smell of the restaurant was so strong. We were not impressed. Probably will not go back. Giving a review of 3 stars is generous.

Tanuki was an enjoyable experience. The Dim Sum sampler was delicious. It was obvious by how perfectly formed and individualized each type was, that much time goes into the preparation. We did not have any of the sushi but will plan to go back soon and explore more of their unique menu options.

Sushi rolls, miso soup, dumpling were well prepared and flavorful.
Singapore noodles were a bit of a strange flavor, but good.

We will give it another try because the food was good, decor and overall ambiance too. Things we ordered took long time to arrive, then there was a big delay between plates and some plates never made it to our table and we couldn't get a hold on our server who never checked if we were ok and had everything we needed. Started as a good night but we left and got our dessert elsewhere to finish our diner...

The food is absolutely amazing, very creative and very tasty, unfortunately with that came along very small dishes, and very expensive. We were a party of 6, we thought we had ordered plenty, by the end of the meal, a few of us considered going somewhere else for a burger, because the dishes were so small and the bill was close to five hundred.

I don't frequent restaurant in that area of Miami Beach because they tend to be a little too trendy or not as focused on service as other areas. My friend had visited the restaurant the week prior to my eating there and had enjoyed it.

Aesthetically, the place is wonderful. I liked the decor very much, as well as the ambiance. The food, however, was just o.k. We did enjoy the Tanuki burger very much, as well as a pork belly dish on the menu. We were not crazy about our server. We both felt he was too casual and perhaps not well-informed about the menu. We were shocked that the iced tea refill, which we were offered and accepted, was $4. I think this should be clearly stated in the menu, or the server should have pointed it out before our accepting it. When we asked the server about the charge on our check, he said it was because their tea was special (he explained the method of preparing it).

I thought perhaps my take on the evening may been harsher because my date and I are both in our 50's. However, I asked my millennial daughter, who is a foodie and frequents the area what she thought about it, and her review was, too, lukewarm.

I love the food there. I visit once a month for the most part. This last time the service was lacking. Perhaps a waiter was missing or didn’t show up to work. The restaurant wasn’t that busy though so I found it surprising that I had to repeatedly ask for my drink. Hopefully it is an isolated experience as all other times I have been I have fully enjoyed.

There is no $6 dim sum as shown on the brunch menu. They should remove it from the menu if they dont want to offer it. The benedict took 45 minutes. it was amazing as the restaurant was only 25% full. Yet the waitress had no time to take care of us.

In addition to the spectacular food and excellent service there is no question that if you look around you’ll see that it attracts at least 50 characters
