Tanuki Sushi and Sake Bar (not the be confused with Tanuki's Cave below stairs) is our favourite for dinner before or after a show. As it is popular, we always book, and often take friends. The atmosphere, service and food are excellent. The extensive menu ranges from tapas-style dishes to sushi and full meals. We love the fresh spring rolls, the scallops with pork belly, and tempura prawns. The wine list is small but well-priced.

An atmospheric, cosmopolitan food and wine bar where my niece took us when our time was short before a Festival event. Service at the bar was fast, the ambiance warm and friendly, our glasses of rose excellent and my scallops wrapped in pork were succulent and tasty. Surprised me. She had a small, but favourite salmon and with a little miso and rice, we were out of there for under $60 total for 2 of us. I wold go again.

The staff of Tanuki is very friendly and quick. The menu is good und to watch the guy, who prepares the sushi is awsome.
My boyfriend and me ordered the donburi-plate with teriyaki salmon. Everything was so delicious on it and especially the salmon melted in your mouth.
If I will visit Auckland again, this restaurant will definetly be my first dinner option!
