I already lost count of how many times I have been in this place! Simply adore their fresh oysters (especially during happy hour when it’s only $2/piece), foie gras truffle yakiniku, salmon cheese roll, and tanuki chirashi. Whenever I feel like I’m looking for comfort...More

The donburi and seafood at Tanuki Raw are very fresh and tasty. We had a great time there with friends. The sweet potato fries are very crispy and the mayo sauce are nicely done too. The raw oysters are also very fresh too. Keep up...More

Food here is generally more pricey but always come back here for the truffle yakiniku. Portion is not super filling for me but still alright. The truffle sweet potato fries are pretty good too.

Food was excellent, portion size was not bad for the Salmon Kaisen don I had, at $12.90 lunch price which was not bad considering I was in the CBD. Ambience of the place is good.

Lunch set was worth it, but wish that the sashmi slices were chunkier, especially the salmon one. And I was missing a piece of unagi that was supposed to come with the chirashi! Sweet potato truffle fries were pretty yummy too. Service staff is sweet...More

Description
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.
