Love the food here - every dish is well-thought of. Lunch is extremely value-for-money, and my family had a great time as always.

I loved the tanuki kaisen don which I felt the various sashimi were pretty fresh! Oysters and truffle sweet potato fries were yummy as well. Great date spot with interesting drinks!

We ordered two dons (the truffle gyudon and unagi hotate don) and they were both amazing. Another favourite of ours would be the foie gras donut.

We were looking for a break from shopping on Orchard Road, so we stopped by this restaurant to get some snack and drink. The salmon sashimi was average but the garlic miso edamame was good. The drink was decent although the price was a bit...More

Good quality food and reasonable price. Ordered 12 pieces of oyster at half price due to happy hour. Service staff was very attentive. Inner restaurant ambience is better. Unfortunately we were seated at the entrance area.

Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and
after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why.
This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying
selection of shopping centres. From bargain basement
foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is
something for everyone. For those just browsing, there
are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas,
as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you

A tanuki is a mythical, mischievous, shape-shifting creature often pictured outside Japanese restaurants holding a bottle of sake. Keeping to the spirit of its namesake, Tanuki Raw offers a mash-up of Japanese-inspired cuisine with the playfulness of American street food and global influences. Dining out has taken on too much seriousness; whether it’s the decorum, cuisine boundaries, or ambience, there is too much focus on everything except for whether or not the food is good. With the ethos of, “Make food that tastes good,” Tanuki Raw strips away rules, boundaries, and preconceptions of how various flavors go together in the search to create tasty, fun, flavorful food.
