This place is ok for the food. Nothing special. If you order to go stuff, plan on waiting forever, I mean forever. I've ordered a few times and every time, it's long. Not sure if they don't have enough help, or just have the attitude of they don't care.

There were four of us - all family members, all in their 50s and 60s. The menu was not expansive - it kept things simple as the kitchen focused more on preparing a few truly delicious dishes and presenting them well. The udon soup was the best I've ever had - delicious broth and noodles from heaven. They must have... More

Terrible dining experience in their new location after being a regular for several years. The ambience is lacking; more of a nightclub scene now/very cold. We were seated upstairs and the waitress up there was serving 6 tables by herself and also performing the role of bartender. As you can imagine, the service was quite poor. I brought this up...

The server was polite but too about an hour to get one Philadelphia roll to the table. It is an upscale place with a nice outdoor dining area. This was my second time there. I would go back hoping the food would come quicker.

I came to Tani a couple of times for dinner. A few of my colleagues loved it so I gave it a try! It's OK, nothing really special about it! They have a roll that is served on fire, but there's really not much to it, the thing is on fire, ok, cool feature! I'm really picky when it comes... More

Order the famous Oh My God roll. You will not be disappointed. It comes on a flaming dish, sure to turn your otherwise inanimate meal into an occasion. The food here is pricey, but it is worth the extra fare. I went here for an anniversary, and they took care of us with a complimentary bottle of bubbly and a... More

I have been trying different places to expand my sushi eating horizons. None of the other places even compare to the quality and taste of the sushi that I've eaten at Tani. By far the best sushi I have ever had. If you go definitely try the spicy tuna number one and number two. You will not be disappointed. Everything... More

We'll start with the decor. Extremely cool art all over the place (most from local artists). The subtle but really neat Japanese decoration in the windows. The steps on either side of the restaurant leading to the upstairs seating area. And the bathrooms are nice and clean too. Very slick looking place! The food... WOW. You think you've had great...

The sushi was fresh and delicious. The Jurassic Park roll is a must! Great location and typical sushi restaurant decor.

Great sushi restaurant. We had several rolls and a nice bottle of Saki to go with them. Their signature is the OMG roll which is served on fire, great presentation, but also tastes great!
