Tani Sushi Bistro – Clayton, MO

Tani Sushi Bistro is known in St. Louis as a hip place. I came here with my co-worker on a Monday evening, it was my first time to Tani. First was impression was nice setting, dark modern setting with a little Asian decor. From my friends … this place is very packed Friday nights and weekends.

Our Monday evening wasn’t so bad, I did made reservation. We were seated promptly.

Sorry, the pictures are so dark (it was pretty dark inside) and I didn’t have my camera with me.

We ordered some sashimi, special rolls, and nigiri.

Sashimi … I am a little disappointed. We ordered 12 pcs chef’s pick sashimi – 3 tuna, 3 salmon, 3 albacore, 3 tako (octopus). The tuna wasn’t fully thaw, I bite into a little frost. The salmon was pretty good. Not worth $22 in my opinion.

Then we some speciality rolls. There is really NOTHING ultimate about the Ultimate Roll! Just so plain even with the sauce.

The worst was the Albacore Jalapeno Roll – so bland, I just taste the rice and the jalapeno :/

Rainbow roll and Soft Shell Crab roll was okay, I have had better ones.


Special Rolls:
Bottom (with some sauce) – The Ultimate Roll $14
Flower Shape – Albacore Japapeno Roll $12
Seaweed Wrap – Soft Shell Crab Roll $9
Top – Rainbow Roll $11

Lastly, we had 2 pcs of Ikura nigiris $5.90/2pcs (I forgot to take picture). Actually the waitress forgot about this one, I had to remind her. Ikura was ok.

I am not very impress with the food quality. The total bill comes to about $85 for 2 person. This is probably one of the highest price sushi in town. I think I can have same or better sushi elsewhere.
