The food was quite good. And the restaurant offered great service. Only set back for big group was the minimum spending clause goes by per guest of $100 and not by total group spending. Was quite challenging, but thanks to Neil for his assistance. We...More

In Chicago on business. My fourth time at Tanta and it didn't disappoint. Absolutely fantastic menu. Best way to do it is get handful of small plates and then share a main course. Can't wait to go back for my 5th time!
