    We very much enjoyed this restaurant and plan to return soon. The miso soup and veggie dumplings, plus a strawberry-cream pastry dessert were excellent. The curry sauce was a bit bland, but the chicken Katsura was well-done and the portion copious.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Tanakatsu. However if we could highlight anything at all, it would be the choice of background music. We had went to this restaurant for the authentic Japanese meal and experience. Instead, music played was reggae, not in fitting with the type of establishment and the experience you expect to receive. However, all staff were excellent and attentive and food was outstanding.

    Lovely meal with my daughters and boyfriend. We had. Salmon sushi, chicken gyoza and edamame beans to start followed by chicken katsu and salmon teriyaki. The service was just right and the food was tasty ( though more spice would make it even better). Will be back!

    Definitely one of the nicest Japanese cuisines I've visited in a long time! Would definitely go back. Portion sizes are great, food is delicious and I would strongly recommend the salmon nigiri as well as the chicken teriyaki. Service is great and they are all so welcoming!

    Very high quality Japanese food. My asian food standards are very high. Don't question it, just go! Slightly more expensive than the standard London Japanese, however, it is completely worth it. Mains are around £17 Entres are around £10 Everything we ate was cooked and presented to perfection. Will definitely be going back.

    For the money I would expertise a better quality tonkatsu... usually in Japan the middle part should ve slightly pink, but al Tanakatsu it was completely white and too dry... I think you should reduce the flying time by 30 seconds. Everything else, the service and the restaurant was good.
