If you're in the Malate area for lunch, you should try their Bento specials--- really filling and tasty!!! one can choose from a number of meals, but the bento always comes with the miso soup ( has clams in it), salad, cold noodles and dipping sauce, rice and dessert. I especially recommend the salmon / tuna sashimi set!

The food is exceptionally good and Japanese eat there. The subtlety of the fermented taste and the richness and blend the tofu ... i ate too much

We got the Yellow Tail Tuna (Hamachi), Salmon (Shake), California Roll, Gyudon, Ebi Tempura, Kaarage, Buta Bara and Chicken Teriyaki. Like everything especially the Yellow Tail Tuna but the Buta Bara was so tough. Seems like the establishment changed the white lights to a warmer type which is better now.

This January 2017, I went here with my friends. The food were great, all of us enjoyed our food. All of us ordered set menus. They offer good quality food, but the price is a little bit high. You need to have an advance reservation in this restaurant. One thing that we don't like is the limited parking spaces outside.

Overall I enjoyed myself at this establishment. The service was a little slow and could have been more attentive, but the food was very good! I especially enjoyed that they had my favorite dish Sukiyaki! It's hard to find this traditional Japanese dish, so I was pleasantly pleased that they had it and prepared it properly! I would definitely revisit... More

This is an average Japanese restaurant but a bit high priced judging on the quality of food they serve. Tuna Sashimi was not fresh, a bit pale in color and had a bloody, fishy smell. Tempura was good. Oyakodon and Gyudon were so so, although there were a few gummy slices of beef. Do not order Chicken Teppanyaki. Bland in... More

There's no doubt about it, Tanabe serves authentic Japanese cuisine. The salmon sashimi melts in your mouth. The other dishes were great, too! The serving size is small, prices are above average.

When I am craving for Japanese comfort food, Tanabe is always top of mind. Since I lived in Tokyo for years, I have very high standards when it comes to Japanese restaurants. Tanabe definitely lives up to my expectations when it comes to authentic Japanese taste and ambiance. I like the Tanabe Jupiter branch more than the Remedios branch because... More

All i can say is. Izakaya Kikufuji still has an edge. Though parking here is good. They have basement parking. And the resto can accomodate many guest.

I came here with my boyfriend and his little sister last week. We decided to eat here before watching a movie to a mall nearby. I suggested this restaurant to them since they have good food and me and my father always goes here at special occasions and enjoy the food. Sadly, I don't like the service they are giving.... More
