Tanuki Serves Killer Sushi in South Beach

Tanuki, Miami sushi restaurant located in South Beach

If you are looking for good sushi, you’ll find it at Tanuki. The Pan-Asian chain opened in South Beach late last year. With a fresh selection of sashimi, sushi rolls, dim sum, and unique entrees that will satisfy your cravings. They also have fun and tasty drinks, making Tanuki a great place for drinks with friends or co-workers. I tried the Samurai Sword Moscow Mule. It was strong and refreshing.

Located on Alton Road, you might be turned off by the difficult parking situation. Ah, but fret not – they have their own parking in the back.

The trendy new restaurant features a giant raccoon statue in the middle of the dining area. It adds a playful flair to the atmosphere – perfect for a fun night with friends. (Side note: Tanuki means raccoon in Japanese, but I mistook that statue for a teddy bear the entire night. Either way, it’s really cute.)

    This will have to be a go to spot for me when I go down to South Beach. Since it’s Swim Week, I may need to stop by there before all the shenanigans! Thanks for the post!
