I'm glad we didn't let first impressions count, in the case of Tani. Had we left on account of our first impression, we'd have missed one of the best meals I've had in recent history - and we eat well. Arriving on a rainy Sunday night, there were only two other diners in the dining room. My husband and I... More

Although we've dined here before and loved the place, we all were disappointed this time around. The food was good but not outstanding as on previous occasions. There were few diners there though it was a Friday night. As well, everything was extraordinarily expensive for what it was.

We just had the 6 course degustation dinner at Tani. Absolutely fantastic. If you don't do it you are missing out big time. Presentation is superb. Waiters very informative and pleasant and food beautifully balanced. We'll be back.

What a gem! Our second visit and I love this place. We went with friends this time and we all thought the food was amazing, both visual and taste! Our waiter was very informative with good suggestions for wine, too. Will definitely pop in when next in Bright.

I expected something special but had no idea how special it was going to be! Simply stunning is the best way to describe it. A few other words include ... creative, innovative, classy, quality, fresh, tasty - just amazing. And Rachel's attention to detail & service made the whole dining experience fantastic. We shared all our courses - 2 starters... More

My friends and i came here for my birthday the other night, all of the food was amazing! I seriously could not fault one thing! Im not usually a squid fan, but that dish was so amazing and the steamed bun sliders are a must! Service was a tiny bit slow but understandable when the restaurant got a bit busy.... More

We ate here with friends and chose starters and then the 2 course options. Great use of local produce and lovely attention to detail in the plating. Favourites of the group were both the goats curd and the spanner crab starters, and the rump cap main. Great wine list with local and international selections.

Tani expresses a casual dining environment that anyone can enjoy. Offering a regional contemporary menu with many dining options. We use seasonal and regional produce sourced from small growers (friends) and small producers where possible.We offer a diverse list of beverages. The list ranges from craft beer to aged sake yet we still have a strong emphasis on wine from local and afar.
