Book a table with us or why not sit at the sushi counter and watch our chef make sashimi, nigiri and maki sushi.  Below us is Tanuki’s Cave, our yakitori (grilled skewers) bar. The Cave does NOT take bookings as it is a bar and operates on a walk in basis

Izakaya food is best shared, preferably with a cold Japanese beer or with a smooth sake. If you would like to make a reservation for tonight and it is after 5pm, please call on (09) 379 5353 as we may not be checking email regularly once we have started service

A “Tanuki” is a cheeky badger who is always drinking sake and having a good time! Tanuki Japanese Restaurant was first established in 1994 and was the first Izakaya style Japanese restaurant in New Zealand.  30 years later it is still serving it’s fresh and authentic Japanese dishes.
