Fantastic food- the teriyaki and rainbow roll sushi were outstanding! The service was excellent- always there without being overbearing. We had the 2 mains and bottle of wine for £40 and thoroughly 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.

Great food.
Not quite to the standard that we found in Katsuretsutei in Kumamoto - no shame in that! Best katsu in London we have found so far.
Definitely recommended! Enjoy!

During lockdown my partner and I had discovered Tanakatsu on deliveroo and regularly ordered dinner from here, always being very happy with our choice. Now that the restriction are lifted we decided to visit the restaurant in person as we've loved the takeout so much. What a fantastic choice! The restaurant itself has a calming atmosphere, is very clean, safety measures are in place that made us feel confident eating out and the staff were very nice. And of course, the food was incredible. We will certainly be back!

Great quality katsu and good portion. The iberico katsu pork was ace! Quality of the katsu and rice were really on par with what you can get in Japan. We also ordered soft shell crab roll and it was yum! Will definitely come back again (if I can find a table - the only time I could get was 5.30pm booking on a Saturday!)

My husband and I visited Tanakatsu for his birthday meal and what a perfect celebration. The food is truly outstanding, the best Japanese food I have ever tasted. And the drinks were lovely too, the sparkling sake was my favourite. The chicken Katsu was delicious, the seared tuna was unreal, gyozas to die for and of course the sushi was full of flavour and texture. Really lovely meal thank you for making it a special night

Absolutely amazing! The best Japanese I have had out of Japan!! Started with a beautiful Yuzu liquer, grilled eel sushi and melt-in-your-mouth tuna carpaccio for entrees, and a katsu set for mains. We were only waiting maybe 10 minutes for our food but the staff profoundly apologised for the wait and offered us additional drinks! Incredibly generous and amazing service. Best value Japanese and would visit again without hesitation!
