Tanuki is a gateway to a unique Asian culinary experience in the heart of Dubai, serving dishes and drinks inspired by the Japanese, Chinese, and cuisines from all over Asia. Located in Dubai Mall downtown, our Dubai restaurant is hailed by both critics and customers alike as one of the best places to enjoy Asian fusion dishes and high-quality ingredients in Dubai.
With a menu thoughtfully curated and seasonally updated by executive chef Drew Andrade, Tanuki features sushi, sashimi, dim sum, and signature hot and cold Asian fusion dishes all created with a contemporary approach in preparation and presentation. In addition to an impressive sake and wine list, unique Asian fusion cocktails complement the cuisine.
Inspired by a Japanese raccoon dog, known as Tanuki, that carries great folkloric significance, we believe that we can bring the myth of happiness and good fortune behind this gullible, yet also sometimes mischievous animal to life with the right combination of food, fun, and atmosphere.
