Excellent, especially in the weekends. Don't forget to try also Dim Sum and warm rolls. Tasty the Bamboo beer.

In Moscow, there's a lot of Sushi-chain restaurant. And this is the more decent one among the others. Price are slightly higher compared to the other chain-sushi restaurant but with more selection and better service.

I like Tanuki, I always order rolls, they are quiet well. Pleasant atmosphere, nice and attentive service:) The cost of a set (30 rolls) is approximately 1900₽.

There is no definition as restaurant service in this place. No any attention to clients, low quality food and ingredients. Unqualified personnel. Choose another place if you are not ready to be disappointed!

With ruble being low exchange rate, this place is ok. Portions are extremely small so you might need to order a couple of dishes if you are used to a normal European or American portion (not gigantic portion). Food is tasty and available in many variety. Ambiance is nice so it's a good place for date or business meal.

Jetlagged in the evening on a short business trip, I went in here for food and drink after finding that my first choice, Bar Nikolay, was closing at 11pm. The free serving of hot herby fruit tea from a long spouted teapot was a nice touch. The sushi was OK and quite filling. One set of four pieces would have... More

I know that it was probably a mistake to order sushi in Moscow so the poor experience was my own fault. I had a warm salmon and cheese roll and it was indelible, just horrible tasting. About an hour or so later, I felt that I might be sick to my stomach. The avocado and strawberry roll was ok but... More

Having visited Moscow five times now, Tanuki is always on the go-to list for food! The choice is excellent with a wide range of soups, sushi and rolls available and they even have English menus which are a god send for travellers like me. I would recommend that Unagi (eel) or Dragon Roll - fabulous! Also the deserts are devine... More

Reason for wide spread of sushi based eateries around Moscow is sheer economy. Small helpings (defrosted imports or off the shelf local foodstuffs) barely done with no particular fancy or variation and boasting affordable prices (on paper)... In this case I had only slight discomfort or indigestion whereas my other 3 companions seemed to have none, having undergone a course... More

Neighbourhood Profile
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
