A Trip to Osaka: Tanoshi

There’s a new izakaya restaurant at 93 Cashel Street and they’re serving up authentic award-winning Japanese fare in an intimate setting.

Matty Yates and Scott Stevens are bringing their more than 30 years’ experience in hospitality around the world to the people of Christchurch with Tanoshi.

On top of the extensive Japanese tapas on offer, the menu features a unique ‘build your own ramen’ concept, where you can personalise your bowl from base to broth, protein, noodles, and toppings. The genuine Tonkotsu broth is one to try, a “labour of love,” made from the highest-quality pork bones that are soaked overnight, placed on a rolling boil for over 12 hours, and constantly topped up and stirred.

“Our trust the chef option designed by executive chef Koji Kiminami is one of our most popular,” operations manager Jillian Apin says. “It’s a seven-course sharing-style menu and includes all our bestsellers. We also have a sake tasting with the top Japanese and locally-made sakes to match to your Tanoshi dishes, and an extensive Japanese whisky and cocktail selection alongside local brews and spirits.”

Transport yourself to downtown Osaka and indulge in Tanoshi’s modern Japanese cuisine for lunch or dinner at the new restaurant. Head to their website or call 03 421 3622 to book a table.
