This is a staple in our choices for dinner and lunch. Like the OMG roll, comes out on fire, also the Samba Roll and a fancy Lobster Roll in a martini glass. Recently moved locations, new place bigger and has a beautiful bar area. Great for a date or business dinner. Located in downtown Clayton, bring cash for the valet.

My personal opinion that Tani serves the best sushi in Saint Louis. Only thing that perhaps female customers find annoying ( I know it from my mother in law ) they have amazing smoked dishes so well, it's little smokey and your hair might smell like bong fire little bit :) But personally I don't care, it's delicious!

Went here for a birthday party event. The sushi was AMAZING, even when served to a group of over 50. I can't wait to attend again.

I worked at a sushi restaurant in another city for several years, and ever since moving back to St. Louis, I have been on the hunt for a good sushi bar. Finally, after many stops, I think I have found one! Tani Sushi Bistro is modern, fun, and an all-around great experience. I went on a Wednesday night, but by... More

We had a great dining experience! The sushi and food were amazing - very fresh and presented beautifully. Cocktails and Sake were excellent. We had our 2 children with us and they treated them very kind....catering to them! Our waiter, Nolan, was the best part of the evening! When visiting Clayton again, we'd definitely return!

I was part of a group of six people that dined at Tani on a Friday night. The new location is spacious and bright and classy. The menu is extensive and creative. The sushi was beautifully presented. Appetizers were also delicious, especially the fried mozzarella and asparagus dish. I thoroughly enjoyed Tani and will return the next time I'm visiting... More

Love the new location; Tani needed a facelift and this spot is a good look. Located in the Plaza Shops next door to Pasteria. Melanie was dry, inattentive and lacked personality. Brought the sushi out but we had to ask for wasabi and sauce....ummmm isn't it standard when you order sushi for the server to place the sauce & such... More

We've loved Tani at its old location - would go every week or two. Had high hopes for the new location, but wanted to warn others that they're still working out the kinks. Made a reservation for 9p on a Saturday, didn't get seated for 45 minutes and then gave up after another 15-20 minutes of waiting for a waitperson.... More

First and last time there. My husband made reservations for my birthday, but we never got a table. They sat us at a bar table15 minutes after our reservation. We started with ordering 2 glasses of wine and an appetizer. Appetizer came but no wine or utensils. Had to ask. We were very excited about the fire rolls. We ordered... More

Spoiled by our fabulous sushi in Denver, this place rocks STL. After a year of commuting and looking for good and fresh sushi, look no further. All the nigiri was terrific, ikura, maguro, unagi were all terrific. Lots of great rolls, too. I did a couple of hand rolls, spicy tuna, and very good. Great service.
