The food here takes me back in Japan🇯🇵 Brings back my memories and flavours of Japan. There's subtleties to Japanese foods that most restaurants can't achieve.

Tanakatsu is a family restaurant , which certainly lends its self to a very high quality of service ,very attentive and thoughtful.

I am a huge fan of Tanakatsu, tried different time and never fails me.You can order anything from the menu literally. You won't be disappointed. My favourite is the Chicken katsu set.It's totally worth the calories.

The menu is not expansive like so many places in London.Great design inside and can’t say enough how delicious the food is. A hidden gem for foodies in London!!Must have place!!!

The food was authentic Japanese and i felt I visited Japan. The service was great. Waiters tried to surprise me to bring the birthday cake and he even called my name correctly, which is hard to pronounce in English. Thanks a lot. The food and the service made my day.

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!
