Tani Sushi Review

Tani Sushi is a Japanese sushi restaurant located in the heart of Terenure. It is one of my favourite sushi restaurants in Dublin so I thought I’d post up my Tani Sushi Review and spread the word.

Tani Sushi Review Terenure



Tani Sushi in Terenure is open nearly 5 years now. It’s a huge hit among my friends and family. Each time we go, it is always busy so I’d recommend booking. Especially on the weekends. Any time I’ve gone without a reservation, the staff have been very helpful and have seated us within 10 minutes.

Dublin has a few good sushi restaurants, my favourite used to be Aya in the city centre. Aya has closed down now and was replaced by Yo! Sushi which I wouldn’t rate as highly as Aya or Tani, but that’s for another day! Other sushi restaurants I enjoy are Michie Sushi and Musashi but I tend to return to Tani as it’s close by and is always consistent with their level of service and food.

Atmosphere

The restaurant itself is relatively small but that adds to the cosy and intimate atmosphere. The tables are well spaced which gives you and your friends a good bit of space between you and other guests. If you’re in the mood for staying in and eating, they also offer a takeout or delivery option which is handy. I’ve never used it myself but have seen a good few locals coming in to place and pick up their orders.

Tani’s waiters and waitresses are always really friendly, they’re attentive and will always fill up your water glass or green tea.

The Food

Tani offers a wide variety of Japanese delights including Gyozas (deep fried dumplings), Katsu Curries, Teppanyaki dishes and traditional sushi. At this point, I’ll admit that I’ve tried most of the menu in this place and cannot fault any of the food.

The freshly made sashimi always tastes delicious, it can take a little time for it to come out but it’s not too long. The chefs are able to present the sushi beautifully. It almost makes you feel guilty to eat it.

What we typically order

Their sushi rolls are delicious and very filling. Some restaurants can disappoint with the amount of filling that goes into the sushi rolls in other restaurants, but not here.



Tani’s fried rice dishes are lovely. if I’m not in the mood for a feast of sushi, I’ll typically order the Cha Han with chicken. The Cha Han consists of fried rice cooked with chicken/prawns/beef and vegetables.

My Recommendation

If you haven’t guessed, I’m a huge fan of sushi. You can see some of my other sushi posts on my blog such as my:

My recommendation for what to order in Tani would be the Agedashi Tofu. This dish is prepared by frying chunks of Tofu in a light batter with soy sauce. You should also try one of their chefs plates, an assortment of nigiri, sashimi and maki. Last but not least, I’d recommend you try one or two of their sushi rolls. My favourites are the spicy salmon roll and the spider roll.
