I'm loathed to write how good this place is because I'm selfish and don't want to miss out on a table due to overbooked demand - but in these difficult times every little helps, and they need the support! Lovely people, great little space, amazing food. They do delivery as well - that I would also highly recommend!

We went to Tanakatsu for a Saturday lunch. It was our first time there. It reminded us of Katsu houses in Tokyo! We had the pork katsu set and the chicken katsu curry. The batter is thin and crispy - perfect in my opinion.

Fantastic experience. The staff were really polite and accommodating. The food was excellent. Highly recommend the eel sushi rolls. I’ve been here three times and in the past it has been a bit noisy but this time it was the perfect noise level.
