Tanuki Sushi Bar & Garden Sierra Vista Reviews
Teppanyaki and Fresh Sushi in the desert Apr 09, 2012
After so many months of being limited on what to eat, I was excited to go out to dinner with my children. With Alexander able to only stay calm for short periods of time, I needed a place where the food is fast and easy. Desire decided we should go to the Chinese Buffet where we had eaten before. I did not care for the Chinese Buffet because I had bad memories from my pregnancy. I do like and enjoy Oriental cuisine; memories of my time in Asia many years back. We decided to try either the Korean or Japanese; with more than 6 Asian restaurants located on Fry Boulevard alone, our dilemma was choosing which one to go to.
Asian cuisine is a charming world to many foreigners; if you are one of those people who have never tried the typical Japanese, Chinese, Thai, or Korean foods you will like Tanuki Sushi Bar & Garden in Sierra Vista. Fry Boulevard in Sierra Vista this restaurant not only serves sushi, but has a full menu including cold and hot Japanese food. You are probably wondering, sushi in the desert? Yes indeed, great sushi in the desert. Their food is freshly made to take out or dine in, great service by a well-mannered team. It is rare in many restaurants nowadays to find the manger walking around asking how your meal is, at Tanuki, the manager walks around with the smile on her face, checking in every so often to see if there is anything else you need; a welcoming, encouraging, and heartwarming gesture to all guests.
Try the teppanyaki typical of Japanese cooking for the hot meals, you will not regret it. Teppanyaki basically means cooking on hot iron; teppan means iron, while yaki is the act of grilling. Choose from teppanyaki with vegetables, chicken, samurai steak, steak and scallop. If you want some sea food included, the shrimp and chicken, filet minon is a great choice. The teppanyaki with scallop & chicken is another option with sea food included. Special offers include the sumotori special or teppanyaki scallop, buddah special, and the geisha special.
A variety of appetizers offers options not limited to edamame, yakitori, gyoza, vegetable tempura, ebi-su. Tako-su, agedashi tofu, tempura, shrimp tempura, and sushi sashimi. The sushi bar offers a typical Japanese Sushi experience, a generous serving of each item ordered.
The price is reasonable, the sushi bar or teppanyaki is a great choice for families with children. We spent $32 including our drinks. My plate of curry with beef cartilage was delicious. My daughter ordered a fresh plate of sushi which she enjoyed. Her only regret was that her plate had no rolled sushi like she is used to. Given that the restaurant is rather small, one gets the feeling of a cozy home meal. So get out this weekend and treat yourself or family to a foreign cuisine right in your home town. For visitors from out of town, this is a great recommendation for Japanese food.
