I love Joon! He is amazing to watch as he is preparing the sushi. The Las Vegas roll is my absolute favorite and I highly recommend it. The customer service is very welcoming and professional, but not stuffy or pompous. The crystals they have throughout the restaurant are absolutely amazing!

Whenever we crave Japanese cuisine, we head to Tanuki. You can get hamauchi kama, sukiyaki, udon, and other dishes with an authentic preparation. Portions are generous, service friendly, and the food delicious.

I crave Tanuki! This is a neat little restaurant that serves fresh sushi, sashimi and teriyaki. I always order the Las Vegas roll and a California roll. The Las Vegas roll is delicious but I think the California roil could be a little bigger. It is small and you'll need to order 2 of them if you want more than... More

The people who work here are wonderful! The food is even better! Food at great prices, however, some things are expensive but it is worth every penny!

This place is super funky. Customers are greeted by this hideous green outside wall, the seating areas are full of random, eclectic knick-knacks, and, of course, the sushi menu is vast and DELICIOUS.

I used to live in Sierra Vista and there are 2 good Japanese places around; Tanuki was my favorite. The staff is always friendly, and the sushi actually tastes fresh. I don't think I've ever been disappointed with the food and service there. Definitely worth a visit while you're here!

Great owners,great service, just a great place. I always get sushi and it is the BEST in sierra vista!! My kids love the music. My husband loves the teriyaki chicken. You really can't go wrong with anything you order though. If you don't want to wait at all, get there as soon as it opens.

So my teenaged granddaughters were a bit put off by the plain, box-like exterior. Called it "sketchy", actually. But I forged ahead and they followed. Inside, the first room is very much like an old 50's cafe -- small and homey.The back room, where we ended up, is awesome -- it's like a little museum with shelf-lined walls stuffed with... More
