    I have been to Tanuki Miami multiple times and absolutely love it. The quality of the food is EXCEPTIONAL. Truly, there are so many venues that build up that sexy sleek Asian interior but are just faux-fusion Japanese (ie. mediocre , looks good tastes mid). Whereas Tanuki actually just has amazing food. Highly recommend and good value the Omakase Thursdays at 47pp, supplemented with the Wagyu Tacos. Total bill (we were not drinking alcohol) $123.19 (incl. gratuity).

    Tanuki is always good, especially on Maki Mondays. Yellowtail truffle roll is exquisite and the wagyu beef tacos are great. Love it. One of the best value sushi in Miami Beach.

    Went for happy hour with my girlfriend and was not disappointed in the slightest. Would 100% recommend the tuna crispy rice appetizer to start, we got a second order because it was so good. We also got two black dragon rolls and an Aburi salmon roll. We also got four pieces of nigiri which were pretty good. My girlfriend had two glasses of wine and I had two of my own drinks. I had an Ohigan and a Tamashi; both were absolutely incredible at $9 each for happy hour. Everything, including tax and tip was under $140. For 4 drinks and plenty of sushi I would say this place was so worth it. Our server also understood we were there for happy hour and took our orders in a timely manner. We also overheard him say to another table that had just sat down at 6:59pm “happy hour is over in one minute if you guys want to get something in real quick before it ends”. I need waiters like him more often! Will definitely recommend to all friends and family who come to Miami beach. My girlfriend and I are big sushi people and were so happy with how good this place was!

    Unparalleled food, the Omakase set was not only beautifully presented as several dishes in their own right but beautifully composed, a depth and combination of subtle flavours that brought out the very best in the fine tuna, salmon, shrimp and mackerel that we were served. Along with that the service was fantastic, attentive enough without smothering us and there just when we needed with good advice and put the diners first. Given some of the service we have received by dismissive servers this was really refreshing. Thank you, we wish we had one in London.

    The music is great. The food is always exceptionally delicious. From the hostess to the wait staff, everyone is always the most friendly and accommodating, even when they’re clearly slammed at capacity. I love the people here. I’m a local and this is one of my favorite places when I want to eat good food in a fun and upscale atmosphere.
