Lovely contemporary setting with great food.

I ended a trip with friends with our last meal in Guatemala here.
There was plenty to choose from for vegetarians and fish eaters. Food was excellent.
Desserts were good as was the coffee. Service with a smile.

I decide to give an opportunity to this place, to be honest, I didn't trust that much at the beginning, but, the flavors and the freshness of the ingredients and the flavor did change my mind. A tasteful and amazing combination of flavors in a couple of rolls that I ate.
It is clean, safe, tasteful, amazing and it is not expensive.

Three of us went to this restaurant to celebrate Mothers Day and it is by far the worst dining experience we've had in Guatemala City.

We had visited other Japanese restaurants in Guatemala City and Antigua in the past and we're looking forward to a nice evening in what at the time was the highest rated Japanese restaurant in Guatemala City based on past Trip Advisor reviews.

First, the ambience was perfectly fine for a low to middle of the road airport type restaurant. Even though the Inter- Continental Hotel is a fine hotel we've enjoyed (most recently in Marseille) and this hotel in Guatemala is elegant and the service good, the restaurant by contrast is as welcoming or perhaps not even as welcoming as a suburban Sbarro.

The menu tries but fails badly to appeal to people that enjoy anything other than tired old Japanese sushi and sashimi combinations and the food, oh the food - bland and otherwise, poured salt and sauces to hide the flavor. Just about any Japanese joint in any neighborhood is bound to offer more creative and interesting choices than Tanoshii.

The service was by far the worst. The only comical part was they tried to pass off four simple bay shrimp on a plate with no accompaniments as the main course. I asked to look at the menu and sure enough there was far to the dish than we were served. Sorry but what really pissed me off was that this was the dish my mom had ordered for her Mothers Day celebration. 20 minutes later after the rest of us had finished our dinner, she finally got what she had originally asked for.

There are plenty of great dining choices in Guatemala City. Regrettably, Tanoshii is not one of them; at least for us. Other people - based on reviews apparently have enjoyed their experiences but we did not. Maybe it was an off night - Maybe Not.

Caveat Emptor.
