Unfortunately won't be going back here as the one quaint, not crowded, and we'll priced food changed. We've been going to this hidden Japanese restaurant for years and only the past 3 times have we had a bad experience. The once early bird specials are no longer available and the prices went up little by little like $3.75 for a... More

Felt like I was back in Tokyo at a quiet special sushi restaurant. This is a jem located in a quiet strip mall along Alpharetta Hwy. Terrific sushi and bento boxes prepared and served by the same chefs and family members for 29+ years. You will be surprised and pleased.

We went with friends who eat here all the time. It is tucked away towards the back of a shopping strip mall. Very unassuming from the outside this little place serves very good food. Three of us has the tempura (generous portion of three shrimp and veggies) and sashimi combo with salad and miso soup. Delish! My husband had the... More

Found Tanaka via word of mouth from a long time Milton resident. After moving from Chicago, never found a place where I really liked the sushi. Most places deep fry and add cream cheese to everything. Or you get sketchy funky looking raw fish. Ick... No, it's not Nobu, and you aren't on the coast, so this is pretty darn... More

It's a small, quiet restaurant but its packed with flavor. Every time I visit Tanaka I am never disappointed. The quality of the rolls are perfect; the freshness of the ingredients, the size of the rolls, and the taste is dynamite. So the food is good... how about the service? Well you are in luck; the staff is friendly and... More

I recently visited Tanaka a few weeks ago with my family. Everything is so delicious! The place is very small but the food is so good and it is defiantly worth the wait if there is one!

After the great reviews, I tried this place.m a lunch special for $15 with tip is ok, but the value wasn't there. Food was good and place was packed. Slow service though. Tokyo Bay Buffett is a way better deal for the money.

Went here for lunch this past week - 1st visit - and so pleased with the special lunch - I had the Alaskan sushi, with tempura, miso, and small salad. The green tea was delicious, the meal was amazing and the prices were excellent. The service was impeccable. This is a small restaurant in a strip mall and would otherwise... More
