$10 for a bowl of rice with four strips of chicken does not seem worth it. Staff friendly. Just wanted more chicken.

The place is quite small but cozy, it was so quiet you could of heard a chopstick drop even though every table was full. The dishes are lovely presented and tasty. My only gripe was it is a little costly for the serves you get.

Unfortunately we were late enough for lunch to miss the specials but grateful to be able to grab a big bowl of ramen late on a cold Canberra afternoon when many restaurants were closed. It was just perfect for what we needed-warm, spicy, tasty and welcoming. Could have been in Tokyo.

Ordered the kimchi chicken ramen and the chicken Katsu curry, both dishes were massive serves and tasted amazing! The ramen was spicy and full of flavour and the curry was perfect on a cold Canberra night, looking forward to going back already!

We chanced upon this little Restuarant and as we like ramen thought we'd give it a try. The lunch specials include a wide range of $10 Ramens. We tried the hot and spicy and found it flavoursome and quite authentic having visited Japan. For a quick wholesome lunch, you can't go wrong.

The food at Tasuke is authentic Japanese food that is tasty and not over priced. The place has a funky back street china town type vibe inside. The service is good, and the food is delicious.

We ducked in for a quick lunch, which wasn't quick. Don't mind if things take some time, but standard bento's should be quick and if time is take the result exceptional. I had the teriyaki chicken bento - it was nice, the tempura was good, the teriyaki sauce a more glutinous than I'm used to and they put sweet chilli... More

I'm a bit surprised by some of the negative reviews about Tasuke. We went here for the first time last night for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed a mushroom kelp salad, unagi, grilled squid legs and grilled fish wings (which were particularly good). One of the better Japanese meals at this price that I've had in Canberra.

Tasuke's used to be great when the original Japanese proprietors were at the helm, however the quality has really dropped with the new owners. I visited with colleagues for lunch, and we ordered sushi rolls from the menu which pictured them as fresh. However, they each came out deep-fried. We tried them anyway, but the fish inside tasted off and... More

Finally we have a chance to review a restaurant that provides quite a different menu to those we have reviewed up until now. Tasuke is a Japanese restaurant which provides weekly lunch specials ($9.99) 5 days a week and other, larger lunch specials (up to $15.00 approx.) each day it is open. The seating is mainly benches (which may be... More
