So far it has been the best sushi experience in Quito for me (service, food, atmosphere). I would recommend it anytime to anyone. There are some other options that are good also like Noé or other smaller restaurants accross the city, but this is def the best when considering the whole experience (is is also the most expensive). Maybe it... More

This is a great place to go for sushi, food is always good and fresh. The place has a great atmosphere and they have 2x1 in cold rolls some nights... highly recommended. You can go with family, friends, on business or on a date.

If you're looking for tastier sushi, Noé might be a better option, and slightly cheaper. But Tanoshii is more traditional, and the atmosphere is way better. I think it provides a more private setting for business, for example.

Tanoshii has great sushi at cheap-reasonable pricing. It tastes great, is safe, you won't get sick, and it is part of the swissotel which means that you can find someone who speaks English. The sushi is the best that I have tasted. There are big serves and all of the sushi tastes good. I really recommend it!!!

Tanoshi in the past untiol 3 years ago was I could say the best restaurant for japanese food in quito, however, due to many changes regarding the chef, and the menu, the restaurant lost that excelency , and now remains good, but competition from other Japánese restaurants in quito, had an influence on this place. location is good, and service...

I seemed to have the opposite experience of most reviewers here. I had pretty attentive service, but I didn't find the sushi to be very appealing. I was excited to find a sushi place since I eat it about once a week back at home, but the menu left something to be desired. Not sure if the sushi is adapted... More

I've been here quite a few times. I've always enjoyed the sushi and at 2 for 1 between seven and nine you can't go wrong. That is unless you expect to be served before breakfast. Tonight's experience blew my mind. I had told some good friends about Tanoshii and seeing as I am leaving the city soon they wanted to... More
