Tanakas isn't fancy but if you want decent maki rolls to go, this is your spot. They also have bottles of pretty good wine to class up your meal for an affordable price. Our favorite maki rolls are the Rock-n-roll and Spicy Salmon.

Stopped in for dinner and had the sushi combo. The cashier seemed new and overcharged me for dinner. She eventually got it straight with some assistance. The sushi was good, not spectacular. While there was nothing wrong with dinner, the place seems over rated. I have had better sushi experience many other places.

It came with smoked salmon, salmon, yellowtail, crab, masago, scallions, cream cheese, cut then individually panko fried, topped with teriyaki,... More

I have been to Tanaka's Grill and Sushi on 2 occasions. Both times the sushi I ordered was really good. I don't like raw so I get the cooked rolls. I have had the Volcano Roll and today I ordered the Thump Roll. Of the 2 I liked the Thump Roll the best. I will say the wasabi seems to... More

... then go elsewhere. I've been coming here for years and the portion size and overall food quality has declined significantly in the last year. (From what I understand, the sushi is still good.) Although you can eat in, I would never recommend it. You will wait half hour and get minimal service while they stay busy filling takeout orders.... More

Enjoyed another great sushi lunch at Tanaka's. Son had the Lil Tanaka's combo lunch which comes with 1 specialty roll (up to $8), miso soup, salad (with awesome house-made ginger dressing) and 4 pieces of nigiri sushi. Great value. Shared a 3-roll for $10 special with wife, plus squid salad. All is fresh and delicious. Presentation is excellent. Closed Sundays

This a great place that was taken over by new owners over 18 months ago. Since then this is by FAR the best Hibachi in Charlotte. No question. Can you please add this to your list of restaurants? Other people need to know about this place!
