Tanaka’s Grill and Sushi is an understated, modern Japanese restaurant that serves traditional Japanese fare such as hibachi, sushi, and sashimi. Some of the sushi has even strayed from tradition and joined the 21st century. The Knock Off Roll is a meal in and of itself with tuna, crab, scallions, jalapenos, and cream cheese, and panko-breaded and fried. Finally, it is topped with sriracha and mayo and served with Ponzu sauce.
There are a number of options and combinations of sushi rolls, each one more interesting than the next. For those who are not sushi eaters, the best option is the hibachi combo that serves two, and includes items such as fried rice with chicken or shrimp and steak mixed together. It is served with scallions, eggs, and carrots. They have a nice selection of sodas, beers, and sakes to go with the delicious food.
